This month’s Mixology Monday is hosted by the Pegu Blog. The theme is limes!

Limes are an essential for a well-stocked bar.  When I first saw the theme, I couldn’t get the “Put the Lime in the Coconut” song out of my head … so I incorporated both lime and coconut into this refreshing drink. Since today is also National Punch Day, I created a punch-like recipe. I had green tea syrup already prepared, so … Read more

Sparkling Spring Punch

Hobson’s Choice, chose punch as the theme. I really love the way punches bring people together. To me, serving punch means you’re celebrating … even if you’re only celebrating the fact that it’s Wednesday night.

This is a variation on a punch (inspired by this recipe) I figured since it was a great way to ring in the New Year, a little touch of lavender would make it a great way to celebrate the coming … Read more

It’s Mixology Monday again, and this month’s hosts are  Thinking of Drinking and North Shore Distillery’s Sonja Kassebaum. She has deemed this month’s theme to be absinthe, why because she simply adores the stuff. I am sure the cocktails coming forth from this one will surely not disappoint.

I decided to go call up a classic, the Monkey Gland. This classic cocktail was either created at by Harry MacElhone at his Harry’s New York Bar … Read more

The theme for this Mixology Monday (hosted by Cocktail Virgin Slut) is tea. Tea cocktails are one of my favorites, so I jumped at the chance to update a classic cocktail with tea.

The Green Tea Gimlet is light and slightly sweet while still giving you what you came to a Gimlet for–vodka. And green tea is good for you. Does that mean this cocktail is good for you? I can’t say that, but I’ll … Read more

Satan’s Whiskers

Mixology Monday time again. We are hosted this month by Vidiot at Cocktailians who choose Vermouth as our theme. This includes sweet (Italian) or dry (French) vermouth, quinquina, aperitif wines, or any fortified, aromatized wine such as Lillet or Dubonnet.

With Halloween upon us I figured I could scare up something. I decided to go with this classic 1920s cocktail “Satan’s Whiskers” a gin cocktail sporting both dry and sweet vermouth, orange juice, Grand Marnier … Read more

Chocolate Milk Martini

Mixology Monday is back and this month the folks at eGullet are hosting. The topic for September is “Dizzy Diary” or more simply cocktails made with dairy products and eggs. Not sure how eggs made it in there as dairy, but hey, why not.

Having just completed the Bar Smarts course, I wanted to use some of my knowledge. I wanted to take a classic and modify it slightly and I chose the classic martini … Read more

Açai Blackberry Cooler

After a Mixology Monday hiatus following Tales of the Cocktail, we are back on track for August. Felicia’s Speakeasy is hosting the event this month. The theme? Vodka is Your Friend. Yes, it is.

I decided to make this from a few ingredients I picked up in New Orleans. I settled on 360 Organic vodka, açai blackberry syrup and ginger ale for bite. I’m calling it the Açai Blackberry Cooler.

Strawberry Ginger Martini

It’s Mixology Monday time again and this month Rumdood is hosting the event. Although, Rumdood is all about rum, he chose Ginger as this month’s Mixology Monday theme.

Having an almost full bottle of the amazing Ginger Liqueur Domaine de Canton on the bar, I seized upon this opportunity. After checking the Domian de Canton site, I found a plethora of drinks to try. It was hard to choose as they all looked tasty. I … Read more
