This week we’re giving the classic mojito a Springtime twist! Mixology Monday XXXVIII is being hosted over at the Wild Drink Blog, and the theme is “Superior Twists.” The idea is add a twist to a classic cocktail that sends it over the top of cocktail goodness.

Mixology Monday – First Timers

It is Mixology Monday again and the Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails, Boston, are hosting. The theme for this month’s party is “First Time” or what to serve a cocktail virgin for their first drink. What are the so-called gateway cocktails that turn one forever? Is it just a group of cocktails? Sure, as I think down my own path, there are the margaritas, gin and tonics and Jack and Coke’s that … Read more

Bacon Salt Martini

The guys over at Tiki Drinks & Indigo Firmaments are hosting December’s Mixology Monday and have chosen “spice” as the theme. They said we could include anything that ads flavor that is not considered an herb, including salt.

Long Island Iced Tea

This month’s Mixology Monday theme is “Guilty Pleasures”. There are so many cocktails that fit the bill, it was hard to pick just one. After going through the archive, I landed on the ultimate guilty pleasure – The Long Island Iced Tea. Equal parts of Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila and Triple Sec all topped with Sweet & Sour and Cola. This drink got me through college and beyond, but in my advanced years I gravitate … Read more
