- Apr 15, 2011
Here are some links to the coolest stuff I stumbled across this week.
By the way, I'm off all of next week, so I've prepared a few posts in advance so this blog doesn't collect dust while I'm gone. I'll answer any questions or comments when I get back. Enjoy Easter!
Simon at Bar Life UK goes on a well justified rant about Dr. Neil Da Costa's recently conducted research about the science behind the supposedly perfect Bloody Mary. It's funny stuff.
While looking for a cocktail that would include some of the liquid gold in my recently acquired bottle of yellow Chartreuse, I came across a recipe for the Alaskan Cocktail at the Cocktail Enthusiast blog. I'm gonna give this simple but tasty sounding drink a go during my week off.
Check out the effects of glass thickness on drink temperature – the third installment in a series of posts at Cocktail Virgin Slut – detailing experiments with glassware, cocktails and temperature.
Nancy at The Backyard Bartender has come up with three really great sounding vodka infusions, including Celery + Bay Leaf, Chocolate, Cinnamon + Chipotle, and Vanilla, Cardamom + Cinnamon. She's also offerd up cocktail recipes to accompany each infusion and some awesome drink photos. Check it out.
Now that we've all (I hope) put away our snow shovels as winter has begrudgingly given way to spring, many imbibers of seasonal temperament are likely to put away warming libations for lighter, fresher cocktails. The folks at Serious Eats have some Light, Bright Cocktails for Spring suggestions.
