Can I squeeze in a trip to the liquor store? (Includes a kosher adaptation of a sazerac and a Death in the Afternoon)


Some cocktails I dreamed up for my “Flowers in the Attic” party. #fita #badgrandma



Got this one on my first try! This drink generator is pretty neat.


Save to Instapaper

California has wine. New Orleans has bourbon. The South has the mint julep. New York—New York, I submit, has a problem.

Its problem sauntered into a trendy downtown bar in highlighted curls and lowlighted roots and an inexplicable pink tutu in 1998 and didn’t leave until 2004 and spent all six goddamn years ordering cosmopolitans.

Because before Sex and the City made it humiliating beyond the pale to be a New Yorker who likes men and order a cosmo—Sex and the City very nearly made it humiliating to be a New Yorker who likes men period—the drink enjoyed enough popularity to stick to the city like it’d been spilled there.

Pumpernickel Highball

  • 2 ounces rye whiskey (such as Bulleit)
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway simple syrup
  • 4 ounces club soda
  • Garnish: cucumber slice

This is going to need to be made before the summer is over. Or is it more of a Fall drink? Either way, get in my belly.

Caraway simple syrup? I think I just found a way to perfect the Pumpernickel Stout I made that won awards…. GENIUS!

How Painkiller does piña colada. W00t.


(Michelle - the Singapore Sling was transcendent.)

And I desperately want this cocktail set.

I love American decorative arts.


Crazy Monster, it is a small world.

This is appropriate.

Rob made me this last night. It was so good. Kind of like a sazerac but without the gross absinthe rinse.

(I guess if you like absinthe then whatever. I just don’t like it.)
