My wife and I recently moved to the Maine coast and I wanted to create a drink that captured the essence of the beach and ocean. Well, that idea failed but here is a Carribean version for you. 
Blur DTO with Coconut Air
2 oz @privateerrum Silver Rum
1/2 oz @privateerrum Queen's Share Rum
1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz @GiffardUSA Bleu Curacao
1/2 oz simple syrup
Coconut "air" to top
Dehydrated lime wheel with nutmeg dust

Coconut Air is a variation from @barcheftoronto's cocktail book. The most beautiful drinks you will ever see. It uses Texturas Lecite, coconut milk, coconut water, lime juice, pineapple syrup and salt.

I'm participating in #WeHaveTheLastWord global cocktail event run by @mmydrinks @wehavethelastword:

My first #LastWord variation pays tribute to a Boston bartending legend, @joshua_childs. This drink is not only delicious but the flavors together create a grapefruit-flavor that plays perfectly with the name "Shaddock". Captain Shaddock brought grapefruit citrus to the Caribbean. 
The Shaddock by Josh Childs
3/4 oz Bols Genever
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz Aperol 
3/4 oz St. Germain Elderflower
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Double strain into a chilled cocktail coupe. No garnish. If you don't have Bols Genever, a London Dry #Gin can be substituted.

More Last Word variations to come throughout April.

For my 3rd #LastWord variation, I wanted to try 2 things: use gin as my base spirit and make the drink green without the use of Green Chartreuse. I recently picked up two bottles of Luxardo Bitter Bianco and wanted to mix with it. For my gin, I wanted complimentary botanicals while playing with the #Tiki theme. @privateerrum's Tiki Finished Gin was the obvious choice. For the green color, I used mint. This drink combo works really well and will become a regular #summersipper. 
3/4 oz Privateer Gin
3/4 oz Luxardo Bitter Bianco
3/4 oz Velvet Falernum
3/4 oz lime juice
2 mint leaves (more for garnish)
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake hard. Double strain into chilled coupe. Garnish with a mint leaf. No need to muddle the mint as the hard shake will do it for you. Cheers.

My second #LastWord variation is close to the original. I subbed out Luxardo Maraschino for Vanilla Giffard. If you can't tell, I love vanilla but with this version you can taste all the great flavors of the gin, the Chartreuse and citrus with hints of vanilla. I like Maraschino but sometimes find it overpowering. 
3/4 oz Gin
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz lime juice
3/4 oz Vanilla Giffard

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with lime wheel. Or don't. Your call.

When life gives you lemons and limes, shake a Ramos Gin Fizz. I like to add vanilla to my Ramos, either a dash of extract or a 1/4 oz Vanilla Giffard. A nice way to start a Sunday.

I'm experimenting with Fizz variations tonight. I made several versions then wanted to see if I could layer two Fizzes, so this bottom portion is one separate Fizz with Old Tom Gin, lime, cinnamon, egg white and cream. The top Fizz has vanilla-infused Cognac, lemon, maple syrup, egg white and cream. The flavors stayed individual for a couple of sips, but eventually they merged and made a nice drink. I wanted to use ingredients that worked together for this reason. The layering effect didn't work, but it is a tasty beverage nonetheless and a concept I may revisit later on. Now to drink this 14oz Fizz.

My favorite cocktails are brown, bitter and stirred. I've always thought there should be more stirred rum drinks. One of my favorites is the Chadburn by Martin Cate. This drink is a riff on it.

Unnamed Chadburn Riff:
2 oz aged rum
1/2 oz Amontillado Sherry
1/2 oz Amaretto
3 dashes Bittermens Mole Bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
No garnish

Stir ingredients and serve in chilled glass. I think this drink would be best served down with a big rock.

I typically make adult milkshakes with our Waring Drink Mixer so I want to expand and make more Tiki/shaken drinks with it. Thankfully, @SmugglersCoveSF has a ton in their cocktail book. 
BUMBOAT by Justin Oliver
2 oz pineapple juice
1.5 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz cinnamon syrup
1 oz Rye
1 oz light aged rum
3 drops almond extract
6 drops @Bittermens Tiki Bitters
3/4 oz black overproof rum (added later)

This is a 'Flash Blend' drink, so if you have a mixer, use it with crushed ice. The texture is amazing. But you can also shake with ice and top with overproof rum and garnish.

Earlier this week I had a cold and while laid up on the couch I watched Big Trouble in Little China. Classic. My friend and great bartender, @scottiepeps, created a drink called the Egg Shen awhile back. I've been craving it ever since.

Egg Shen by Scott Shoer:
2 oz Spiced Rum
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
1/4 oz Allspice Dram
Egg white
Grated Nutmeg for garnish.

Add all ingredients into shaker without ice and dry shake. Add ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into coupe and garnish with grated nutmeg. 
Can't wait to sip this on warmer days. 
When in the #Boston area, go visit Scott and crew @sycamore755. Awesome food, creative drinks, incredible hospitality. Cheers.

Red wagons are the most chic presentation for a beverage station. All I need is a little dog to pull it around for me. Preferably a pug dressed as a conductor. 
A little pomegranate seed goes a long way to dress up a glass of bubbles. .

Set up last night was so fun! With the theme of 400 Rabbits to work with all of my woodsy dishes got to come out of the cabinet. A little shot of tomato juice at each setting, just to clear the palette, but I liked it for the color pop.

Thank you SOL Studio. This table is wonderful to gather around.

Grapefruit cordial. I've been making a few cordials this summer. They brighten a drink, while adding the desired flavor. Basically they are just really delicious stabilized alcoholic  juice. Who wouldn't be a fan? ๐ŸŠ

I start with three grapefruit. I take the peels, cover with sugar until the sugar dissolves the oil in the peel. Add a little hot water to that so it really melts the sugar. Then juice the remaining grapefruit. Add brandy to the peel minute and leave covered for a day. Then mix everything all together again in a fun bottle. Whamo, I got a grapefruit cordial!
