Somewhere in the world it’s after 5

Hey, look! Two posts in one day!

Since we’re probably having pizza for dinner, I thought I’d post this one as I’m consuming the product rather than tomorrow.

So while many of my cookbooks have beverage recipes, Speakeasy is dedicated to cocktails. I had to do some modifications as my local booze shop does not carry Plymouth (or Barr Hill, my favourite) and I only had caramelized simple (and clearly do not have a julep strainer), but I sure do have fresh mint in the herb garden!

Faux Jadite is still nice

Spouse bought me a measure when he was out yesterday, which has already come in handy

Chilled glass, an extra sprig of mint, and down the hatch!

Honestly, I’m really picky about mint in drinks. I like juleps and non-alcoholic mint hot or iced tea, but not much else. This, however, was really good, balanced and maybe a little too drinkable.

Clink!
