American Vodka

Yes, I still harbor a major snottiness towards vodka as category. I just tend to like drinking things that taste like something...flavor tastes good to me, that's just my thing, you know? HOWEVER, this piece on craft vodkas is pretty cool.

Distilling Ideas

Yes, I am totally obsessed with Bruichladdich. It's just that they are so damned rad.

Dealing with the Angostura Shortage, part 2

Still no Angostura? Well, we are looking over our shoulder towards Trinidad and...shrugging.

I have had a few new batches of bitters working for a few months and I unleashed them today. Rather than all kinds of new cocktails, we are hoping to broaden horizons by showing that Manhattans do not necessarily require Angostura. I personally am fighting the urge to line up Manhattan flight of all 5 for myself.

Digital Restauranteering

I think I might buy a Nintendo just so I can have this game.

Angostura update

I received the following from Angostura today. Looks like the drought is over.

Hi Neyah,

Bitters was shipped to both the US and the UK some time in October and both locations should have product. Not sure that it would have reached all outlets yet. Our company continues to produce and supply as quickly as possible. I wish you all the very best for the new year.
