Stawberry Summer Sip


by Natalie Broulette

2 oz. strawberry puree

3 oz. St. Germain

4 oz. Brut Rosé

4 oz. club soda

To make strawberry puree, combine 5 medium strawberries, quartered, and 2 teaspoons water in a blender. Strain with a sieve to remove all the seeds. You should end up with around 2 oz. of puree after straining. Combine puree, St. Germain, sparkling rosé and club soda in a large glass and stir. Pour into champagne glasses and garnish with strawberry slices.  Makes two drinks.

Just had to take a leap.Fron south Georgia to the British Isles. English, Scotch-Irish- heritage and roots of many Southern. Georgia of course named for George III and settled by English, Irish, Germans. So what's being touted in the British Isles? Some we favor and others I know not of. Great website to see how Brits identified their favorite cocktails-

Great names and old favorites: Number 1-"God en Partners," rated a 5;Long Island Iced Tea, rated a 4.8 (pretty strong stuff) and number 3-"Last of the Architects," rated a 4.6. Recipes posted on the site, enjoy what's popular across the pond. And in honor of the return of Downton Abbey, on January 5, 2014, I'll make my drink a Cosmopolitan, favored by the United Kingdon for Fall.

Love this piece on 'How to Choose Ice for Cocktails' this week in FOOD52.  After being at Patterson House in Nashville, every libation was perfectly outfitted with proper ice and glassware.  I am believer!

As a bartender in Birmingham, AL, I've become fascinated with classic cocktails and their histories. Each week, I'll be profiling a different drink. The local link is and the full posts with the recipes are available here:! Y'all let me know what you think.

Check out this cool article from Esquire interviewing one of their bartenders, Miranda Poore, 32

Intrigued by a mention of a shrub cocktail, I wanted to know more. So here's how to make your own shrub syrups:
Great time to add this drink to your repertoire with all berries now available.

Bourbon and Boots had a great post todayStocking a Holiday Bar: Southerner's Edition.

Holiday time means many things to different people, but in the South it’s all about the get togethers – planned or not. And one thing no self-respecting southerner should be caught without is a properly stocked bar. But where do you begin?
