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 […]

The camp was packed with a fabulous mix of folks as usual. We even had our own hashtag. Nailed to a tree. Yep, we were in nature but we were […]

Boozy Ice Cream Social

Now that summer has comfortably settled in, it actually seems hard to remember a time when flip flops weren’t your shoe of choice, your Instagram feed wasn’t flooded with obnoxious vacation pics, and ice cream wasn’t a daily staple in your diet. I know I’m not the only […]

The race isn’t until Saturday, so that gives you a little time to construct your award-winning topper, brush up on this year’s stats and perfect your Mint Julep recipe, the official drink of the Kentucky Derby. Ooooor, you can just rely […]

The Whiskey Cardinale

Like a fiery, Italian bombshell in a Spaghetti Western, this little rye whiskey cocktail goes down real easy. Wait. That sounded….um. Ok. All you need to know about The Whiskey Cardinale is this cocktail, or a slight variation on this recipe, was my go-to, after work sipper for like a year straight. And continues to be […]
