Brief Interruption

Posting on the site has been light for my tastes the last two or three weeks. For that I apologize. Or at least, while the posting has been somewhat lighter, it has been much more focused on videos and commentary on other peoples’ writing. The truth of the matter is that I’ve been fairly sick the last two weeks with what started out as the flu (I lied to myself and said it must be a cold, but I was wrong) and then became some sort of upper respiratory funk. In this time I haven’t had a sense of smell and have been on antibiotics and cold meds to make me incapable of doing any tasting or recipe development. My liquor cabinet has remained closed, with bottles gathering dust.

I’m hoping that I’ll be back in cocktail blogging shape in the next few days. While I enjoy blogging beyond simple reporting on bars, reviewing spirits, or tasting recipes, I like having those areas as a backbone to this site.

Stay tuned for more – I do have a few spirits to review, as well as updates on cherry-vanilla bitters I’m currently making. I’ve also recently acquired bitters from The Bitter Truth in Germany. I look forward to playing with their Orange Bitters and Jerry Thomas’ Own Decanter Bitters.
