27 Jul Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Summer Haze Edition

  It is well into summer here in our delightful northern hemisphere, darlings, and I think I’ve just begun to shake off the heavy laziness that sets in with the oppressive heat of it all. I do hope your summer is treating you well, even if it isn’t any sort of summer at all because you live in a different part of the world and are still reading my words through the magic of the…

07 Mar Coffee Liqueur and the Bourbon Lift

I don’t have very much free time, but in my leisure I enjoy reading various cocktail/beer/spirits blogs and especially fancy watching cocktail videos. As I stumbled my way through the internet wormhole I came across a fantastic online publication from Element Collective in Chicago, entitled Rabbit Hole Magazine. From food, drink, design, travel, music, sport and culture they have you covered. What’s more is that their content is spot on and concise. The aesthetics make me blind with envy…

For the minutes I stand there staring, everything…

The house lights dim to a candle-like glow; a few…

14 Nov Bourbon Spice Cake

Newly fallen leaves crunch below tightly laced shoes while hoodies and sweaters hide favorite t-shirts. Red and yellow begin to dot the landscape as piles of color are tediously constructed by neighbors tidying their littered lawns. Brisk winds carry in cold nights. The smell of near and distant fireplaces roaring to life fill the dark, frigid air. Leftover unwanted candy, once passed out to masqueraded kids, is packed away high up in a pantry to…

09 Nov Bourbon Apple Meringue Pie

The soft, airy white mountain stacked high parts as the heavy fork sinks through it with ease. I separate a bite, lifting the shockingly-light mass up to my eager mouth – I resist the desire to simply mold and sculpt this delightfully feathery structure. As if by magic the moist cotton candy like treat dissolves into thin air as it hits my tongue, leaving a faint sweet taste behind. I drop my fork back to…
