Sweet and Savory, “The Godfather”

by Jason Lightner November 7th, 2014| Cocktails
Having been the recipient of a fair number of bottles of booze courtesy of turning one year wiser (and not at all less handsome), I'm excited to try out a number of fantastic cocktail recipes I've had on the back burner for quite a while. Having a fully stocked

The Redneck Mimosa

by Jason Lightner October 31st, 2014| Cocktails
Last week we talked about Mama Walker's Maple Bacon Liqueur and its role in helping us craft a fantastic and offbeat Bloody Mary. We're going to deviate from the savory this week, but remain squarely in the brunch seat. You see, brunch is a big staple here in the City

An Eclectic Bloody Mary, “Mama’s Ruby Shoes”

by Jason Lightner October 24th, 2014| Cocktails
It was on clearance and I simply had to get it.

That's a line that might be familiar with some of our readers. That feeling when you see a discounted price and, no matter what your better judgement is telling you, you simply need to make that purchase.

Root Beer Float Cocktail — Minus the Ice Cream

by Michele October 17th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
How can you have a root beer float without the ice cream, you might be asking yourself.  It is pretty simple.  In fact, there's a chewing gum that's root beer float flavored.  Having tried it, I can vouch that it tastes pretty similar to the soda and ice cream

Wine Smoothie? Wine Slushie? Just Call It Yummy

by Michele October 10th, 2014| Cocktails, Frozen Drinks
We had a heat wave the last weekend in September. Well, not really a heat wave, but the temperature was in the mid 80s on Saturday and Sunday with mostly sunny skies. That feels pretty warm in New Hampshire at the end of September.  So, after a day spent

Orange and Vanilla Frozen Treat Cocktail

by Michele October 3rd, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
We have a bottle of Licor 43 in our bar that taunts me.  When I am feeling creative and want to make something besides a spiced rum and diet Coke or gin and tonic, I look at the various liqueurs we have.  One of those is Licor 43.  I

Blueberry Cosmo — A Nice Spin on a Classic

by Michele September 26th, 2014| Cocktails, Martinis
I know, cosmos are so late 90s.  However, every once in a while, they are a fun drink to revisit.  They looks pretty in their martini glasses, they are light and (hopefully) refreshing.  Since I've had my share of the classic cosmo, I like to explore other flavor possibilities.

Hint of Wine Spritzer — Light and Refreshing

by Michele September 19th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
Go to almost any bar or restaurant in the summer months and you will find sangria on the menu.  It must be a popular item, as I noticed this year that most establishments offered both a white and a red version.  I like many versions of sangria -- made

Almond Joy — It Doesn’t Have to Be a Candy Bar

by Michele September 12th, 2014| Cocktails, Martinis, Mixed Drinks
Dessert cocktails really don't much more for me.  Oh sure, there was a time in my life when a chocolate or espresso martini was an exciting drink.  In fact, I have to admit that sometimes they weren't dessert drinks, they were pre-dinner drinks.  Now, something like that almost never

Blackberry Cider- Dressing up a Bottled Beverage

by Michele September 5th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
I don't like beer; I never have. I find its taste to be off-putting and not enjoyable in the least. However, having discovered hard cider a couple years ago, I find most to be quite tasty.  (The most does not include ciders that are more beer-like.)  The discovery of

Peach Cobbler Cocktail — Just as Nice on Ice

by Michele August 8th, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
It isn't quite peach season in New Hampshire, but it is in other parts of the country.  As I eagerly anticipate the arrival of local fruit, I have been enjoying the peaches shipped in from southern states.  (Feel free to gasp in horror at this point.)

Fresh Blueberry Cocktail

by Michele August 1st, 2014| Cocktails, Mixed Drinks
It is blueberry picking season in New Hampshire!  Living just down the street from a blueberry farm means that we go blueberry picking at least twice each summer.  Our first excursion was two weeks ago, when the season was early.  Although the picking was decent, it would've taken a
