So, last week we went out to dinner with one of our lovely FriendsAtTheBar, and whilst there we were issued a challenge: come up with an alcoholic version of everyone’s favorite childhood faux-cocktail: The Shirley Temple. Well guess what? We don’t take challenges lightly here at The Woman At The Bar, and so we set off to make this fantasy a reality.
And so, henceforth, this Hump Day, April 30th, shall be known as the day we officially unveiled the answer to all of your wildest dreams: The Shirley Temple Black.
Happy Tuesday, readers! For this week’s Tools & Tricks we are giving you two for the price of one: something that is both a tool AND a trick!
The time has come for The Flavor Bible everyone, the time has come.
It’s Monday, Monday, I-had-to-look-up-the-lyrics-to-this-song-so-I-could-parody-it Monday!
Well, now that that is over, welcome back everyone! We made it to the last Monday in April, are you excited? We know you are.
This week, we created a drink that focuses on one of our favorite things when it comes to drink-making: combining two different base liquors to create one great cocktail! So say hello to our most recent invention: The Grande Vanilla Latte!
For this week’s liquor spotlight, we decided to focus on an often unsung hero of the cocktail-making game: bitters! You may only use a few drops of these little buddies in your drinks, but boy oh boy do they pack a punch.
Getting inside their tiny liquid brains and figuring out how they tick is important, so lets do this thing, readers!
It’s time for another Throwback Thursday Classic Cocktail, everyone! And this week, by popular demand, we are delving into the world of the Mojito!
And, because we love you so much, we will not just be giving you a recipe for the perfect classic Mojito, BUT we also tinkered with the recipe to come up with a variation of our own, which we have dubbed The Italian Job! But first things first, lets get down to business with the best of the best original recipe!
When we began to plan this week’s Classic Cocktail recipe, we really started to think… We love a classic Mojito just as much as the next person–but we here at The Woman At The Bar are never content to simply rest with the classics. So, we began to tinker and test, and in the end we came up with a brand new creation that we think is an absolutely delicious alternative to the classic Mojito, AND far superior to all the many fruit-infused Mojitos that are out there.
So, if you dare, come inside and learn all about The Italian Job!
Everyone, it’s Wednesday. All over again. Can you believe it? Strange days, indeed…
This week’s quickie cocktail is one that some of you are probably familiar with, but for those of you that are not, we will proudly proclaim that this is the perfect way to up your bar ordering game when you happen to be at an establishment where, how shall we say this gently, ordering a drink with more than two ingredients can cause a bit of confusion…
