The Satchmo Cocktail

Well here`s something right up my alley…a twist of the Sazerac containing absinthe, gin and campari…

And not only that but it also uses a strong spicy bourbon while the classic Sazerac uses rye or cognac or both.

Then we can special order 4 other brands but […]

LE TOURMENT VERT AND PR ETIQUETTE

I came in late to this as i live in a different time zone and missed most of the discussion concerning this incredible disrespectful and distasteful action by Le Tourment Vert hiring Cashmere to spam bloggers posts about our last TDN which was sponsored by Mata Hari.

This post is my very quick addition to […]
