Thirsty Thursday: Wake Me Up

I like almost anything in a martini glass. Cosmos I could live without and options that are more sugar than booze are something I could do without, but in general, I enjoy all kinds of martini. One of my favorites is an espresso martini. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Brash Bloody

When I was 21, I did not understand the appeal of Bloody Marys. Tomato juice, vodka, and celery did not sounds like a good time to me. Now, I’m obsessed. I can drink a Bloody day or night. They are packed with flavor, are a great savory option when gin or bourbon wont cut it, and they don’t clash with many foods. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Celebration Sangria

Although most of my Thirsty Thursday posts are recipes I came up with off the cuff, I was recently sent two bottles from Bodega Ruca Malen of 2016 Aimé Sweet Moscato for National Sangria Day on December 20th. Made in Mendoza with 100% Muscat de Alexandria and boasting a price tag of $8.99, there’s nothing here to turn white sangria lovers off. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Sometimes All You Need is a Glass

I’ve been posting Thirsty Thursday posts for a while on this blog. On a day off, my mind conjures up many kinds of mixed drinks, from simple to complex. Sometimes they’re boozier and other times they are sweet enough to enjoy on a beach. However, there are times when all I want to do is open a bottle and pour something directly into a glass. This normally results in my drinking some wine. When I don’t want that, Hum botanical spirit comes in. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Fall Jams

When making cocktails at home, I like simple recipes where I don’t need to layer anything, figure out how to use egg whites, or spend twenty minutes trying to decipher the recipe. That’s why the majority of my Thirsty Thursday posts are basic, but I also think they are good. In general, they tend toward the sweeter side, and while I’d like to experiement with that a bit more in the future, this one falls into that category as well. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Loot of Fruit

Greetings from Disney! As you read this, I am currently in the Happiest Place on Earth. I’m probably rocking some obnoxious ears, a pair of sunglasses just as obnoxious, and some sort of clothing to indicate that I am a Mouseketeer at heart. Before I left, I passed the time I should have been packing by playing around with alcohol. I’ve also been on a mini health kick, and decided to blend the two as much as possible. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Electric Tea

While I usually associate February with snow, an overrated holiday I will not name, and the desire for big broody red wine, it is currently sixty degrees in Baltimore. So, not knowing what to do with myself, I made a cocktail. I wanted something with citrus, though still bold enough to remind me that this is actually winter not July 4th. After throwing a few things together, too lazy to even take out my shaker, I created what I’ve dubbed an Electric Tea.
