BBaF Podcast Episode 35: Maker’s Mark with Rob Samuels

Listen to Episode 35: Maker’s Mark with Rob Samuels” I’ve written quite a bit over the years about Kentucky bourbon brand Maker’s Mark, and created many a cocktail recipe with their whisky on this very blog.

But it was this Kentucky visit that kicked it all off. […]

Homemade Coffee Liqueur Inspires These Seductive Sippers

You know that magic that happens when something just comes together so perfectly you can’t imagine a time when it wasn’t a thing that existed in the universe?

And even then I tend to doctor it up with ginger or a little cayenne pepper (that’ll put some hair […]
