Had a wonderful family come In while I was making my special for the day. One month ago today, a family member of theirs passed away. That man was Jim. To their request I named this cocktail for you Jim, Rest in peace. ×Jim in the Springtime×
Champagne ♡Cheers, Jim and all~
While my girlfriend was in the kitchen creating the 'poodliest' drink ever, I was mixing up (possibly) the most true to form "Three Dots and a Dash" in Southern California. With freshly squeezed lime and orange juices, homemade honey mix, Clement VSOP and Hamilton Demerara rums, allspice, pimiento dram, and chopped ice. All mixed with a 1940s Hamilton Beach top-down stick mixer and garnished with three maraschino cherries, skewered by a vintage Don the Beachcomber 'garnish pick' and one pineapple leaf. If you don't know the story, Donn Beach created this cocktail during WWII and 'three dots and a dash' is morse code for 'Victory'. The cherries representing the three dots, and the pineapple leaf spear representing the dash.
This is a TASTY cocktail when prepared correctly. Real, real tasty. Oh, and go see my girlfriend's drink, if you're interested @ashlyncoco

Miami's own Magic City Gin and Hell's Bay rum are back on the shelf at @biggameliquors, pass by and pick up a bottle, they won't last. The Hell's Bay rum is available in very limited quantities. Thank you for supporting our local craft distillery.
My friend opened up an amazing Colombian-themed brewery @andinabrewingco that also serves cocktails! 💃This is the Lulazo: Sambuca, lulo fruit (a cross between lime and rhubarb), lemon, topped with soda. Perfect daytime sipper. Congrats @nic_amaya! #craftbeer
LAKE EFFECT /// If you live in Chicago, you know the emotional toll that is spring. One day it feels like summer, the next day it's snowing. That was the idea behind this cocktail, which combines some winter smoke and spice with some refreshing summer fruit and soda. I had help creating this drink with famous Chicago mixologist Toby Maloney at The Violet Hour's cocktail 201 class. Truly a great experience and a lot of fun. Check out their website for more classes.
