First off, Happy October 1st! Now no one can throw any shade at you if you dress in Halloween-themed regalia 24/7. We put up our Halloween decorations the first week of September, which we realize is slightly aggressive, but the time has really come now!
Okay, back to business. As you may have noticed, there was no post yesterday. Sorry guys!
Here’s the deal: The Woman At The Bar is moving her life from Los Angeles to San Francisco this week, so the regular posting schedule is going to be a bit interrupted. We are hoping to get back to normal sometime around next Wednesday. Hang in there!
But until then, you can always just check out the rest of our delicious drinks — that should be able to tide you over!
Okay, no one panic. Yes, today’s liquor spotlight is about bourbon. And yes, it is bourbon that is not our beloved Bulleit. But don’t worry, we have not forsaken our other love, we simply want to expand our collective bourbon-verse and let you guys in on another great (if not slightly more expensive) option, should you be in need of some additional bourbon in your life.
So far on the blog we have released 25 TBT Classic Cocktail recipes, and so to celebrate passing the quarter-hundred mark, we decided to go back through the list we have cultivated thus far, and countdown our top five favorites–because there are some great ones in there, and we wouldn’t want anything to get lost in the shuffle!
Do you aspire to be a Fancy Person? Someone who sits in overstuffed leather chairs in dim private libraries sipping a glass of fancy liquor out of crystal glasses?
Of course you do.
Well, then you should probably know a little something about Cognac, because boy oh boy do the Fancy People love it. Luckily for us, the aspirational Fancy Persons, it also happens to be quite delicious!
Today’s classic cocktail comes to us straight from the nineteen-teens, and trust us that when you taste it you will feel like you are sitting in a horse and buggy, trotting down a dirt road in old New York.
Look, some weeks seem longer than others, we get it. Trust us, we get it. But never fear, because we have made it to the mid-way mark of the week, and we here at The Woman At The Bar know what an accomplishment that can be — and we think it is deserving of a drink.
This week’s quickie cocktail comes to us from a rather unconventional location, but hey, good ideas can come from odd places sometimes, so we are running with it.
Because Bulleit Bourbon + Ginger Beer + Lime = a deliciously wonderful idea.
