Cocktails, Mocktails, & Liqueurs – Oh My! This post coincides with a Facebook Live video on Karen England’s Shop Facebook Page @karenenglandsshop where she demonstrates making different styles of orange zests used for making liqueurs and for cocktail and mocktail garnishes.
I am overrun with lemongrass therefore I’m making lots of Lemongrass Martinis for a party this weekend. Makes sense to me! You may want to make some too, whether or not you are growing lemongrass, since lemongrass is now readily available fresh at green grocers nationwide, even if you aren’t overrun with it in your garden as I am, you can make this simple, classy, refreshing, delicious drink.
The Cocktail of the weekend is the Blackberry Margarita. You are welcome.
Audio cookbooks! My new favorite thing!
The TimTam Slam is this week’s installment of Edgehill Herb Farm’s #cocktailoftheweekend. Karen’s Australian nephew taught her how to drink this cocktail when she was last downunda visiting family a few years ago and this week she found the normally unavailable Aussie cookie called TimTams, an all important ingredient in the drink bearing its name, at the American store called World Market – prompting this post. Although she learned the TimTam Slam by drinking it with red wine she prefers drinking it with Port and thinks you will too! Visit her fledgling EHF YouTube channel to see her demonstrate how to drink the TimTam Slam. You’ll get a chuckle!
When you feel a cold coming on, make & drink Darina Allen’s Irish Whiskey Punch! That’s what I do! – “To your Health!”
