TSL Cocktail of the month Year end review – December 2021

We decided to do a review of the cocktails we drank over the last year. Turns out we didn’t get up and going until April. Not sure why that happened but we did get started. There was some discussion regarding the name of the Meukow – seems there is some variability with it. And, here’s the rundown:

April – Blue Hawaii (Rum, Vodka, Pineapple juice, Blue Curacao

May – Mint Julep (Bourbon, Mint simple syrup)

June – Father’s day – Harvey Wallbanger (Vodka, Galliano L’Autentico, Orange Juice)

July – Christmas in July – (Whiskey, Rum, eggs and cream)

August – Raspberry Beret #1 (Cointreau, Lime juice, fresh lime juice, egg whites, soda water) and Raspberry Beret #2 (Raspberry Vodka, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Raspberry Liquor, cream, grenadine)

September – Bumbo (Dark Rum, Lemon juice, Grenadine), Bonus track – Sailor’s Sunrise (Spiced Rum, orange juice, Grenadine, cherry garnish)

October – Corpse Reviver #1 (Vermouth, Apple Brandy), Bonus track Skeleton Key (Bourbon, Elderflower Liquor, lemon juice, Ginger Beer, bitters)

November – Autumn Apple Snap (Apple Cider, Hendrick’s Gin, lemon juice, Ginger Beer), Apple Ginger Snap (Apple Cider, Ginger Beer, Bourbon, lemon juice), Apple Cider Mimosa (Apple Cider, Champagne, Cointreau)

December – Year in review and Meukow review

After it was all said and done, we agreed on our favorite – which is a real surprise for the Mad Farmer and Miss Mercy. We hope you will join us in 2022 for more fun and all the ridiculousness that we will have to share. Happy New Year!

Drink Responsibly and Get into the Spirit of Things!

TSL Cocktail of the month – Happy Fall Y’all November 2021

Autumn is a great time of year and this one was particularly lovely. The weather was actually fall like and we didn’t have early snow either! We thought it would be fun to showcase drinks that had apple in them since pumpkin gets all the airtime. Also, since there is an upcoming holiday, instead of doing one drink we selected three. We continue to have some technical issues, so this video is from our camera and we aren’t looking into it – but it is the best version. As always, if you try any of the drinks do let us know what you think of them. Remember to drink responsibly and get into the spirit of things! Happy Autumn and Happy Thanksgiving!
