    Oh my Averna Amaro

    Has anyone else found the pleasure of adding a few dashes of Averna to their favorite beer? I promise, it's heavenly so long as the beer sits under 7% ABV, at least for my taste buds. Pale ales and pilsners work so well for this. Any other Amaros that work well?

    Everyday mixing Bourbon

    Willett for sipping, Bulleit for mixing.

    You can try adding a few drops of Gran Classico to add a ilttle more depth.

    Spring cocktails

    This is an ode for the death of winter. Using all the ingredients of the past season to remind what was lost. Preserves is the best way to remind me of a time gone in a cocktail.
