The Corpse Reviver #2 – My Current House Cocktail

The curious Corpse Reviver #2 has become the house cocktail lately at my place, which means I offer one to guests and probably make a couple a week for myself otherwise.

The Manhattan

The Manhattan is a classic cocktail, that unlike many, never faded away. I use to enjoy one every decade or so, but now it has become one of my standards. Allegedly the Manhattan was invented by Dr. Iain Marshall in the early 1870s at the Manhattan Club in New York City, and named after the […]

Sex and Drugs

 “Sex and drugs and rock and roll. Are very good indeed”- Ian Dury and The Blockheads (See Ian Dury’s video at the bottom of this post). Look, I get soooo many questions on sex and drugs, simply because they seem to go with Rock and Roll. How could Ian Dury and The Blockheads ever be […]
