  3. Home Bar: A Martini Your Way, Plus Rules for Ordering at Bars

    Not many drinks lend themselves to so much expected variation as the Martini. James Bond famously preferred his shaken, though classic bartending would suggest that you stir spirit-only cocktails. Taste is obviously subjective, but try telling that to a busy or indifferent bartender. Depending on the environment of the bar or restaurant, they may not Continue…

  4. On Cooking, These Days

Here it goes: in 2016, I resolve to drink more tequila and spend more time with friends. I’ve spent a fair amount of time exploring other spirits, but I haven’t Continue…

  10. Frosted Heart Cookies

    Few things are more therapeutic than mixing colors in a bowl and frosting cookies. These cookies involved only my second time using food coloring and I have to say, I’m kind of hooked on synthetic colors. I’m being only mildly sarcastic here. The truth is, I’ve always believed that food can be both pretty and Continue…
