Pumpkin in Progress

Well I did promise you a drink of the week which this week is an original, but still in progress creation that I’m calling the “Harvest Pumpkin.”  The tastes aren’t quite perfect yet, but it is still very close and certainly drinkable.

Just in time for the harvest season!

Bar 2.0

As the weather get’s colder I am reminded that my trusty cactus “Gonzalez” will need some shelter from the snow before too long. In previous years Gonzalez sat by the basement window which has since become the bar. This has become a problem. So with some clever reorganizing and cleaning up of some unnecessary clutter the bar is now in 2.0 mode!

Most of them appear to be small versions of Cocktail, Coupe, and Sour Glasses, but once again I’m still just learning things.

Last week I mentioned about some new glassware and I figured I’d have to show off my nerdy/geeky pints (and a shot)

A drink to good health!

Well the bar is expanding with new ingredients such as Coconut Rum and Triple Sec, and new glassware as well. Though the glassware is for another post. Today’s cocktail comes from my inspiration blog “The Drunken Moogle” in this “Harvest Moon” inspired drink. I only played the game once, so at the very least I can say that I sort of understand it. The Power Berry is a just a little tart and goes down smooth. Check out how to make it here: Power Berry (Harvest Moon Cocktail)
