For your pleasure dear reader, some of the cool and interesting links I ran across last week:
Cocktailians.com has come up with a homemade, flight-legal cocktail kit for those of us who can't bear to fly without being able to put together a decent cocktail. Check out Cocktails at 35,000 Feet. It's quite clever.
If you're reading this, you're likely reading several other cocktail blogs, too. Take a look at the 6 nominees for best cocktail blog in the 2nd annual Saveur Best Food Blog Awards.
Like Tiki drinks? Like Campari? Ever though of combining the tow? The folks at A Mountain of Crushed Ice blog have, and they've shared three recipes featuring Campari in Tiki drinks.
While we're on the subject of Campari, Josh at Post Prohibition did a little piece about the differences between Campari and Aperol (a favourite of mine), which includes two original recipes that are quite tasty indeed.
The Kentucky Derby is less than a week away, which means it's time to polish up your Mint Julep making skills. If you plan on siting back and having them made for you, Imbibe has written up a list of 6 spots where you can score a perfectly made Mint Julep.
If you like it spicy, get ready for Ghost Face Killa, the world's hottest beer. It will be a limited release from Twisted Pine Brewing, including ghost peppers (rated at over 1 million heat units on the Scoville scale.). So get a line on some now, if you really want to feel the heat.
