Thirsty Thursday – The Debut Of The Harper

Tagged: , , ,

When it comes to cocktails, I’m no mixologist but I do like to mess around with ingredients and try to come up with original cocktails for my future beach bar. As more and more beach bars pop up every day, trying to figure out how to separate yourself from the pack becomes essential. That’s where the cocktails come in.

Gittin’ My Drank On – Cucumber and Lime Gin Fizz

Tagged: , , ,

It’s not Thirsty Thursday but seeing as how we’re halfway through the week and now on the down slope to the weekend, I figured today would be as good a time as any to post an article on my new favorite obsession – gin. Throw in the fact that I made one of the best drinks I’ve ever had this weekend with gin (prone to hyperbole but with the best of intentions) and my exit from vodka cocktails to gin creations was only hastened.
