The Next Thing
Tonight's cocktail, which I had at the Cherry Circle Room at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel in February, is called The Normans: "Rye, calavados [an apple brandy from Normandy], demerara [pretentious brownish sugar], angostura." Yes, please. The Norm...

Boxes and Baggage
Tonight's cocktail is a Cucumber Basil Smash from Seasons 52 - Cucumber Vodka, White Cranberry Juice, Agave, Fresh Lime, Cucumber, and Basil. Lots of stuff, crushed flat and shaken with vodka, sweetened and served on the rocks. Like me. One of the things th...
