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.
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.
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!
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!
