One thing about Gandhi: he did not mix a lot of cocktails. In particular, he did not mix many gin & tonics. But there were others, many other cocktails that he did not mix. Okay, full disclosure: I know next to nothing about Gandhi. And almost everything I do know about Gandhi I learned… MORE

Admittedly, I was more interested in this post when I thought the sandwich was called the Double Dare.  "What to pair with the double dare." It rhymes. If you haven't heard, the Double Down is KFC's new bun-less fried-chicken sandwich with bacon and cheese -- actually, it's a bacon and… MORE

I'm so relieved. But how did I miss the headlines?"Manhattan Faces Bitter End.""Bitters Shortage Shakes up Cocktail World""Bitter Pill to Take"House of Angostura, maker of angostura bitters in Trinidad, was apparently engaged in a (excuse me) bitter dispute with the maker of those adorable… MORE

YES! They are finally selling absinthe in tiny airplane bottles! Or they are in Seattle’s state-owned liquor stores, anyway -- and so I imagine they must be selling them everywhere else by now, too.Maybe this is not news to anyone. But I was thrilled. And to celebrate, I mixed MORE

If there is one fruit to me that symbolizes the start of summer in Britain, it’s the strawberry.  This succulent and fragrant fruit is as delicious tasting as it is looking.  (Have I ever told you red is my favorite colour?)  The strawberry has long been a favorite ingredient MORE

When the words “Afternoon Tea” get mentioned to me I immediately think of those small triangle sandwiches with the crusts cut off, dainty little petit fours, scones with cream and jam and even crumpets smothered with English butter.  But the star attraction for me will always be a good MORE
