I wanna thank @doughnutsanddeadlifts for these wonderful shorts. These smalls are a lil big for me but the drawstring actually does something and held them through leg day. That waffle inside is amazing. I rolled my shorts for my last set of quads and it stayed until I'd finished walking back to the locker room, looking like a doofus.
Last day of #tikithesnowaway and I opted for the Scorpion Bowl, party of 1! I adapted The Smuggler's Cove recipe into enough for one and did half clarified oj, half curacao. Using the trick in their book, Finally, I have fire!
We ACTUALLY live in a world where someone can and will deny another's truth. To my trans friends, I wanna remind you all that every space I occupy is a safe one for you. I see you. I love you. I fight for you. Today and everyday. Chromosomes don't determine who you are or who you can love.
2 hours. That's how long it took me to clarify an orange without machines or additives. 1 ounce. That's how much orange juice I got. This is a clarified gin & juice/sunrise cocktail. Obviously made with Tanqueray because Snoop wouldn't use anything else.
This is pure inspiration from @apartment_bartender and his Monte Cold Brew. I threw a couple of twists in to create my own variation. Cold brew coffee, cinnamon simple syrup, @cruzanrum blakcstrap rum, @amaromonte, and a whole egg to make this a flip. It sits on a cold brew ice cube with an orange twist and freshly grated cinnamon.
My first, true Mai Tai! Recipe adapted from @smugglerscovesf cocktail book. Homemade orgeat, from @deathandcompany book, Pierre Ferrand dry curacao, and a split base of @eldorado_rum 5 year and @plantation.rum OFTD. Yes. I'm smiling ear to ear!
Of course the last intentional #thismightgetweirdbro had to end, well, weird. I had 4 slices of pineapple that needed to be used or eaten. So I ate one, muddled 2, and charred the 4th for a garnish. This "Smokey and the Pineapple" smash may never be "Bennie and the Jets" famous but that's cool.
On tonight's #thismightgetweirdbro, we visit an old friend...banana liqueur. #oldforester 1870? Check. Banana liqueur? Oui. Chocolate bitters? Totes. The first few sips were good but a taaaad too sweet for how I like my old fashioned variations so I added a quarter oz of Overproof bourbon and boom! Be jealous of my A&W Root Beer lunchbox.
