(SEMI)-EXCLUSIVE — The Macallan Negroni

Monday, March 7, 2011 — The Macallan Negroni You know The Macallan. Sure you do. Purveyor of fine single-malt Speyside scotches. I’ve mentioned them before.

Here’s what’s pretty damn […]

Angry Screwdriver

July 13, 2010 (Day 164) — Angry Screwdriver (This is a personal play off the classic Campari Orange cocktail).

It’s not a liquor you often see simply sitting behind the bar at your local dive (which have their own awesome array of boozes, mind you). But, when I hear Campari mentioned, I think of a piano […]

This martini has several different ingredients that all work together well to create something that’s better than […]
