This week’s Monday Funday drink, Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake, inspired us to take some of the same flavors, streamline them, and see if something good came out of it. And guess what? Something great did!
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:
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!
We’ve told you before about our deep and unyielding love for all things pisco — but today we wanted to tell you about a new brand of the delicious Peruvian brandy that we’ve discovered and think is worth a trip to the liquor store.
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!
