Bacon Me Angry

by PNM Editors April 13th, 2015| Cocktails, Martinis
Don't confine bacon to a plate or bowl; it can fit just as nicely into a martini glass! This author has experimented with her share of infusions. I've made winners (blueberry and cranberry infused vodkas) and losers (candy corn infused vodka- don't ask). I've never tried making my own bacon-infused

Diabla Dulce

If you're serving garlic as part of your menu, you may wonder what you can pair with it? It needs to be a beverage that can hold its own in the face of this strongly flavored ingredient, and it also needs not to clash. That can be a challenging

Strawberry and Balsamic Martini- Pair It with Celery

by PNM Editors March 27th, 2015| Cocktails, Martinis
We often think of pairing wines and food, but cocktails don't often get that same degree of consideration.  Sure, we think about what cocktail to drink before dinner, but we don't necessarily think about pairing one with pieces of our menu. In the coming months, Think Tasty and Parched

The Citrusy “T.I. Park”

The second in our Hub Punch two-parter comes to us, once again, courtesy of our friends at Bully Boy Distillers, of Boston, Massachusetts. These guys have created a libation called Hub Punch, which is a throwback to pre-Prohibition Boston traditions. A rum infused with orange peel, lemon peel, and raspberry, Bully

The Delightful “ElderLemon Cucumber Martini”

by Jason Lightner March 6th, 2015| Cocktails
This one comes courtesy of my darling wife, without whom I would be absolutely lost.

One of the myriad of flavors I absolutely adore in my cocktails is lemon. The sour bite of a fresh lemon is, in my humble opinion, absolutely without peer in the world of fruit flavor.

There's nothing like a good Manhattan — the quintessential cocktail born at the New York club of the same name, this is a drink that withstood the test of time, time and time again.

There's not a lot that hasn't been said about this drink already (and certainly by folks

Frank and Candid, “Beer and a Smoke”

by Jason Lightner February 13th, 2015| Cocktails
As I sit here, listening to Silverchair's "Tomorrow," I'm thinking back to my younger years when my beverage forays were not quite as filled with complexity and intrigue. Indeed, it used to be that you could simply pop open a beer and enjoy a smoke in your favorite dive
