Happy Tuesday, everyone! 

On a recent trip to visit several extended Woman At The Bar family members, we came across a rather unsettling discovery as we perused their (otherwise very impressive) home bar: a bottle of blue curacao. 

There it was, in all it’s toilet cleaner-colored glory, hobnobbing with the good scotch and a bottle of Grand Marnier, as if it belonged there. 

This startling revelation has prompted us to write this article, as a general reminder to all of our readers out there who we love so much:

Monday Funday #21: Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake!

DSC11

Happy Monday, everyone!

This is a very, very special Monday here at The Woman At The Bar, because today’s drink was created specifically for one you! 

Diane, one of our wonderful readers, threw down the gauntlet and challenged us to create a drink inspired by her favorite dessert, strawberry cheesecake, and we are not ones to ever turn away from a challenge–so create we did! 

This is the first of what we hope to be many drinks created with your input, so if you have a drink challenge for us, no matter how pie (or cheesecake!) in the sky it may seem, send it to our way and we will put on our mad scientist caps and get to inventing! 

But for now, we hope that you all (but especially Diane) enjoy Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake!

This is a drink that has been showing up in bartending manuals since the 1880s, and although it may be an old, old, old-y, it is definitely a goody.

Tuesday Tools & Tricks #20: The Truth About “Low Cal” Liquor!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Today we are tackling a topic very close to our hearts, because if we hear one more person tell us they are only drinking clear liquor because it is healthier and they are on a diet, we may just go into a rage blackout that never ends.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to shove some truth into the faces of your annoying friends who give you a look every time you order whiskey — it’s time for some myth-busting about the “healthiest” liquors!
