Toast Tuesday

I enjoy a well crafted cocktail.  Living in Memphis, I was having trouble finding a good drink that wasn’t  overly sweet.  So, when I got this book as a gift, I thought what better way to expand my already overflowing bar and try something new.

  1. I think you should have a look at this blog: My husband is a fan of Thomas Pynchon’s book (and of good drinks) and he came across it. Never read any Pynchon myself (he says I’d hate it) but I’ve got nothing against cocktails! Anyhow, I thought I’d share it with you! 🙂

  2. Sounds like a fun idea! Might try and give it a go. As I live in New Zealand I might post on our Wednesdays which will still be your Tuesdays (we are like 21 hours ahead of Seattle).
