What We're Drinking This Week

Definitely excited about drinking this week.  Last week, as you may recall, I wasn't feeling 100%, and alcohol didn't sound all that appealing.  This week, I'm very excited about the two drinks that we'll be trying: the Mexican Mule and the Georgia White Peach Smash.

First though, Soundtrack of the Week!

Soundtrack of the Week: The xx, "XX".  This is really wonderful Saturday morning hangover music.  It's chill beyond chill.  If you need some music to mellow out to, this is an ideal album.  My favorite song on the album is actually the first track, called "Intro."  It's an instrumental song, but it's got a really nice combination of sounds, and a really lush sound. 

Book of the Week: "Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails: From the Alamagoozlum to the Zombie 100 Rediscovered Recipes and the Stories Behind Them"  This is a really cool book for any cocktail lover.  It's well researched, and features a ton of drinks that can easily be made today.  My fear when purchasing the book was that it'd feature obscure alcohols and combinations that I simply couldn't put together.  My fears though, were quickly put aside when I saw the recipes.  They feature normal alcohols, with commonly available additions, like orange bitters, and simple syrup. 

What We're Drinking This Week:

First, thanks to all who wrote when I was under the weather.  I felt like crap for 24 hours, but then, healed quickly.  I don't get sick too often, so this hit me like a truck.  I'm 100% though now, and have been for about 5 days or so. 

Second, I can't tell you how excited I am for these two cocktails.  They are very different from one another, but I think they both will be stellar.

Tuesday:  Mexican Mule - tequila based, with ginger ale.

Friday: Georgia White Peach Smash - bourbon based, with peaches, obviously! 

And, as an added bonus, we'll be exploring scotch region Speyside later today.  Look for it.   Until then, have an excellent Monday!
