Cause For Celebration

December 22, 2016

The Winter Solstice may herald the beginning of Winter but it also gifts us a little extra daylight each day…slowly inching us out of the darkness. Good reason to celebrate to be sure. I’m thinking a Stinger and an arm-load of white fringed tulips are in order.

Stinger: equal parts Brandy and white Creme de Menthe. In this case, on the rocks.

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.
