A Special Whiskey for a Thanksgiving Cocktail: Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon & the Old Pal

It’s here – my most favorite time of year! We get to surround ourselves with loved ones, think about all the things we are grateful for, and eat our weight in mashed potatoes! Wheeee! What more could you want? Well, booze of course, duh. Don’t worry your sweet potato head about it. I gotchoo, boo. […]

Another Reason to Visit Maker’s Mark Distillery: Star Hill Provisions

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I visited the gorgeous Maker’s Mark distillery in Loretto, Kentucky. But if you’ve been following me on social media, you know that it’s been a bonkers few months of travel and imbibing across the country and continents! 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? Like kindred flavors that seemingly compliment one another in a bewitching way – like coffee & chocolate, for instance (relevant to this post). Or kindred spirits that make everything around them better just by […]

Grey Gardens Hot Toddy with Maker’s Mark

Whiskey, lemon juice, honey…maybe a cinnamon stick. That’s the recipe for a classic hot toddy. Simple, straightforward, and let’s be real, a little boring. I’ve never been crazy about straight up hot toddys unless I’m sick. And even then I tend to doctor it up with ginger or a little cayenne pepper (that’ll put some hair […]

Chipotle Cherry Bourbon Smash

The ‘Smash’ is in effect a Julep on a small plan.” – Harry Craddock, The Savoy Cocktail Book, 1930 What is a smash? It sounds fun! According to cocktail lore, it is essentially a julep. Sooo…spirit, sugar, water, mint and ice. A smash usually uses fresh, seasonal fruit. Muddled or…smashed, as it were! Some smashes have other herbs […]

The Long Kiss Goodnight featured on Behind the Bar | Design*Sponge

In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I created a make-out of a cocktail called The Long Kiss Goodnight for Design*Sponge’s Behind the Bar column. It’s actually a riff off of our New Year’s Eve tipple, the Auld Lang Syne. Instead of scotch, we used bourbon and the lemon juice was swapped for blood orange juice. We kept the […]
