Blueberry Pie Martini

by Michele July 18th, 2014| Cocktails, Martinis
Shall I continue with my regular mantra about how I don't like heavy, creamy drinks nor overly sweet drinks?  My best friends like to harass me about it, it makes my husband smirk, but it is true.  So, you may be looking at the title of this cocktail and

Jim Beam Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

by TK July 15th, 2014| Spirits
I am child of the 1970s and 1980s.   Those two decades are the cultural references that I usually understand.  The movies I know, the songs I can sing, and the pop culture icons I gravitate to are all from that 20-year period.  So when I think of Jim Beam

Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka

The 20th Century; now here is a classic with a divine combination of quinine, lemon and chocolate that come together subtly to provide a drink with a dense palate and a rare color in modern cocktails, a hazy, almost smog-like brown. Named after the 20th Century Limited train, this
