The Revolver Cocktail Recipe Card

The Revolver cocktail is such an interesting and easy drink. It is definitely one to add to your winter cocktail lineup. This is darkly interesting, simply intriguing. The Revolver cocktail reminds me of dark delicious chocolate laced with barely there hint of orange. Bourbon flavor profiles vary, so be aware that this cocktail will taste a little different depending upon the brand you choose.

Parisian Blonde Recipe Card

Yes, I know. The holiday season seemed to fly by this year. It was a short few weeks between Halloween and Thanksgiving. We had even less time between Thanksgiving and Christmas to fit shopping, gift giving and merry making in. Wrapping paper flew faster than Dancer, Prancer and Vixen.

I am exhausted! How about you?!

It’s time for a serious vacation! Or the next best thing… Shake up a cocktail and dream of a fabulous vacation. Cheers!

Merry Christmas Paisley Martini Recipe Card

Merry Christmas!

The Intoxicologist wishes you and yours a very happy holiday! I hope you enjoy a pleasant day filled with laughter and smiles. A drop or two of spirited cheer would be grand, too!

The Paisley Martini is similar to a Smoky Martini. A typical Smoky Martini usually contains 2 ounces Gin and 1/4 ounce Scotch of choice. The liquids are stirred with ice and served neat in a chilled martini glass. A lemon twist garnish is appropriate. The Paisley Martini brings dry vermouth to the glass for a wee bit of smoky restraint.

Sweet & Vicious Holiday Recipe Card

The frequent joke is that holiday family gatherings are the reason liquor was invented. Stock the bar and hang a welcome wreath on the front door. Christmas Eve has arrived!

All kidding aside, holidays are an ideal time to treat family and friends to fabulous sips and apps. I rely heavily on my tried and true favorite cocktails, but also like to serve a few classic cocktail variations when company comes knocking.

The Sweet & Vicious cocktail is rye based with the delicious deep flavor of Amaro weaved into the drink. A touch of maple syrup and apple give this twist on the classic Manhattan a nice fall to winter feel.
