About

Greetings! My name is Alex, and I’ve been teaching myself to make better drinks. It’s only been a few years and I’ve made some progress, but I’ve got a long way to go. This is where I’ll share my experiences, my successes and failures.

Each month I’ll participate in Mixology Monday, a monthly get-together where cocktail bloggers make or create drinks based on a prompt. I’ll use that as a tool to delve deeper into the cocktail world and put what I learn into practice.

I’m also reading several books on the subject, and I’ll put together a reading list/citation page so you can follow along, if you’d like, and so I can give credit where credit is due.

Finally, I’m a huge proponent of drinking local. I’ll often showcase locally-produced spirits in drinks, and I encourage you to seek out your own local distillates. You’ll be supporting local businesses, both the still and their suppliers, while drinking delicious and often unique spirits.

Thanks for stopping by, and zum wohl!
