Flavored spirits are a rather polarizing force in the world of mixology — some people completely dismiss them, while others (ourselves included) welcome them occasionally for very specific purposes. But in general, flavored vodka (and other flavored spirits) have grown exponentially in popularity over the years, and although there are some good quality brands out there, you will often pay more for the luxury of chemically flavored liquor — when you could be doing it yourself, and often doing it better.
Pencils out everyone, because vodka infusion school is in session!
Bloody Mary. Mimosa. Bellini. What do all of these things have in common (besides being delicious)? They are perfectly acceptable to drink at breakfast time! And since we are firm believers that a Sunday brunch is not complete without a brunch cocktail, we decided to work up and sweet and savory cocktail that is perfect to add into your mid-morning breakfast rotation.
We think it has been well established by now that we here at The Woman At The Bar love whiskey. Specifically, American whiskey — aka, bourbon and rye. One of the frist drinks that turned us on to this delectable stuff was the classic Whiskey Sour, so it’s probably time that we cover that on the blog, don’t you think?
Scotch. How do you feel about it? It is not a liquor in our usual rotation, but sometimes it just hits the spot. And this quickie cocktail? Well, even if you are not a scotch drinker, this is still one for you.
We love making cocktails, but we also love watching movies. And when a movie shows up inside the magical world of Netflix that somehow manages to combine our love of cocktails AND our love of documentaries, well that is something we have to share.
Well, now that we have passed Labor Day it’s time to put away all of your white clothes, pack up your beach towels, and get ready for Fall! Little known fact: Fall is our favorite season here at The Woman At The Bar, so suffice it to say that the second the clock struck midnight after Labor Day we were pulling out our Fall decorations and prepping for various autumn-themed drinks. Lucky for you, all those leaf-changing, air-crisping, apple-picking themed drinks happen to be delicious!
And since today is the first Monday in the Summer-to-Fall transition, we decided to jump on in and get started with a ridiculously delicious creation of ours: the Autumn Slush!
We are officially at the end of summer, which means we are about to say goodbye to shorts, swimsuits, AND summer fruit. So we decided to take this opportunity to give you our recipe for the classic Bellini so you can get the peach goodness in now before they’re gone!
