Sweet Potato Rosemary Maple Brown Sugar Bourbon Doughnuts

That’s a hell of a name for something.  Is it weird if I start naming desserts the way I name cocktails?  I can add a pun, or make an obscure reference I’m sure that only a handful of people will get.  I don’t know… it feels weird giving doughnuts a “name”.  We’ll just stick with…

I’m often inspired to make drinks based on the people I have in my life.  The drinks based on different things, whether it’s a favorite thing they like, the way they make me feel, or even sometimes how they smell.  People impact you greatly, and then sometimes you never see them again.  A drink is…

Green Tease

I chose to deconstruct this recipe…

Matcha’do About Nothing

There’s something satisfying about seeing an egg white foam perfectly layered atop of a drink.  Egg white cocktails (when well executed) are hands down my first choice when I see one on a menu. I’ve always had a long obsession with Green Chartreuse.  It’s my favorite liqueur without question.  The history alone is what enthralled…

White Russian

I was sixteen when I used to drink booze from my parents liquor cabinet.  At the time the only cocktail I was remotely familiar with was a White Russian due to countless viewings of the Big Lebowski.  One particular night when my parents were out of town I was trying to impress my friend by…
