Here is a look around the world of cocktails.  It has been raining quite a bit here and I am desperately looking forward to warmer weather.  A few of these pieces leave me longing.

 

Thai Spring Mojito Week In Cocktails   March 27, 2011

Thai Spring Mojito by drinkoftheweek.com

 

  • Starting in the world of film, Matthew McConaughey has created his own end of day cocktail.  It is a play off a basic Margarita.  He is quoted as saying: “I have my own version of the margarita: tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur and tonic water, topped off with cranberry juice.”  That does not sound bad.
  • The Calgary Herald has a nice piece on the “Bitters Revolution.” I think it is more of a renaissance.
  • At Viper Alley, a concert venue, nightclub and bowling alley that debuted in Lincolnshire, Illinois (near Chicago) is mixing up some house infused syrups to add to classic cocktails.  My favorite is the jalapeño syrup and gin combination called The Venom.
  • Here is a drink that makes me look forward to warmer weather.  The EFFEN Cucumber Basil Temptress is EFFEN Cucumber Vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, muddled basil and club soda.  Simple.  The title is a tad long though.
  • Reuters has a quick profile of some of the best gin joints in London including Marks Bar, the renovated American Bar at the Savoy Hotel and Vertigo 42, among others.
  • Bethenny Frankel (of the Real Housewives of New York City fame) has sold her line of Skinny Girl Cocktails to Fortune Brands Incorporated.  It is a line of low calorie cocktails for which she is now fat with cash.
  • The fine folks over at drinkoftheweek.com are offering the Thai Spring Mojito as a way to kick off Spring.  White rum, sugar, water, ginger, Thai basil, mint, lime juice and club soda.  I say, well done sir!

Now, bring on the heat and the sunscreen!
