So this is my new blog, hopefully to be updated every Monday. My goal if any is to have this site be a record of my diving head first into the partially unknown territory of Mixology. The fine art of shaking making and creating cocktails and mixers. As a visual fine artist I find myself perusing greatness in every new hobby I encounter and this one is no different. Much like Mitch Hutts (Geek and Sundry Vlogger and creator of thedrunkenmoogle.com) I found myself turning 21 with very little knowledge of alcohol. but the desire to know more.
In recent months to fulfill my 2013 New Year’s Resolution (yep I actually remembered and am working on it) I learned to make a traditional Mojito. From the mojito I moved to a daiquiri and a few other basic drinks, but of course this was just enough to get my feet wet from a shaker.
Currently I’m in the process of gathering ingredients for my bar and looking up new cocktails for my menu. Hopefully by the time the annual family Christmas Party rolls around I’ll be able to offer a diverse set of drink for our guests.
For today however, I offer you a tasty spin on my first cocktail that I call the “Melonball Mojito”
3/4 oz Melon liqueur
3/4 oz white rum (bacardi)
12 mint leaves
1/2 lime (1 oz)
2 tbsps simple syrup (or 4 teaspoons sugar)
Add all ingredients together with ice an a shaker. Strain into a highball glass, top with club soda. Garnish with a mint leaf.
Please Drink Responsibly.
