Reason to Celebrate

May 3, 2019

It’s May. And if that wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, this first weekend brings us both the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. Like we needed an excuse for a delightful Bourbon cocktail or quick plate of Mexican. So, what’ll it be? Maybe both.

You Get What You Need

November 20, 2016

It’s true. And, friends have a way of knowing what it is and exactly when it’s needed. Take this gift parcel that arrived the other day… Buffalo Trace Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, Agnostura Bitters, sugar cubes, Luxardo Italian Maraschino Cherries, a big juicy orange and a recipe from a favorite bartender for a simplequietmodern Old Fashioned. Just what I needed at just the right time as a gentle Fall has decided to take it’s seasonal turn, home and work projects ramp up and Thanksgiving in just a few days. There is magic in perfect timing.
