We didn't have anything exciting going on this weekend so at the last minute we rounded up whoever was around and hosted a big cocktail party. Over the next few days I'll be sharing some of our appetizer, syrup, garnish, and drink recipes that we whipped together for about 15 folks this Saturday.
In the meantime, here are some of the party goers.
Thomas is inspecting one of the 2 bottles of Absinthe that people brought to share.
Erin and Kristin squeezed 2 bags of lemons to make ginger-mint lemonade. Which they then deemed too sour so we made them into cocktails instead:
By adding bourbon to the ginger-mint lemonade concoction we had drinks a plenty for a good hour.
Dave and Hugh sample some Absinthe Drips
Everybody gathering in the kitchen to whip up more drinks.
Dave contributed an ice cream cake to the party. We decided it needed a candle but with no birthdays to celebrate we dedicated it to Kristin's doodlebonger.
Dave eats his piece right off of the butchers knife we used to cut the cake.
Me and my favorite girl
Brent & Anj keeping the couch warm. Where are your cocktails?
So stay tuned for some amazing recipes. I'll start with the garnishes and syrups!
