MxMO – Variations

MxMO – Variations

It’s that time again! Mixology Monday is this month hosted by Jimmy over at Jimmy’s Cocktail Hour, and has the theme of “variations”. This immediately conjured up lots of ideas, mainly based around recipe comparisons, but as they have become something of a regular item here I wanted to come up with an entry that [...]

MxMO – Brandy

January 14th, 2008

MxMO – Brandy

Despite the slightly longer than usual gap, I still find myself surprised and unprepared for another Mixology Monday, this time hosted by Marleigh over at Sloshed! The topic this month is brandy, a subject which offers many possibilities from Cognac and Calvados to the altogether different tastes of Pisco or even kirsch. However this month, [...]

MxMO – Repeal Day

MxMO – Repeal Day

This month Mixology Monday, hosted by Jeffrey Morgenthaler, is all about Repeal Day – the celebration of the end of prohibition in the United States. For thirteen years consumption of alcohol for non-medical purposes was banned in the States, leading millions of Americans to willingly break the law by frequenting speakeasies, and giving cause for [...]

MxMO – Gin Round-up

And so another Mixology Monday draws to a close. And what a busy one it was! I count a total of 36 37 38 (see comments below) entries, including the three from eGullet members, which just goes to show gin is far more than just something your grandma drinks.
We had all kinds of entries, spanning [...]

MxMO – Sloe Gin

MxMO – Sloe Gin

Since starting this site I have looked at many gin cocktails, something which is quite amazing given that a few years ago I wouldn’t touch the stuff. I toyed with several ideas for what to cover myself for this theme, from looking at different Martini recipes to doing a taste test of various gins. However, [...]

MxMO – Gin

MxMO – Gin

It’s nearly Mixology Monday time again, and this month I am honoured to be the host. For those who don’t know, Mixology Monday is a monthly event held in the online cocktail world where we all make drinks and write posts around a certain theme.
This month the theme is gin. Not quite as inventive [...]

MxMO – Pairings

October 16th, 2007

MxMO – Pairings

This month’s Mixology Monday is hosted by Natalie “The Liquid Muse” Bovis-Nelsen, who has chosen the rather interesting topic of cocktail pairings, or finding cocktails and food that work particularly well together. This presented an interesting challenge to me as I tend to drink wine when dining, leaving cocktails for after-dinner, afternoons and, well, every [...]

MxMO – Champagne

MxMO – Champagne

This months Mixology Monday is hosted by my good friend Gabriel who has chosen the theme of “Fizz!!”. Interestingly, aside from the Raspberry Loretto I’ve never featured a drink that features anything fizzy. This is mainly because, aside from the odd G&T and when I’m out in bars I don’t trust to make decent cocktails, [...]

MxMO – Orange

MxMO – Orange

It’s Mixology Monday time again, this month hosted by Gwen at Intoxicated Zodiac with the theme of Orange. Well actually it’s a bit more complicated than that, relating to the star-sign Leo (my own sign, coincidentally), but head over to Intoxicated Zodiac for the full run down.
I use orange bitters and orange zest quite regularly, [...]

MxMO – Blog Love

MxMO – Blog Love

It’s Mixology Monday time again, which this month has the slightly different theme of blog love – the idea being you pick a cocktail you first came across in another blog, and write about the cocktail whilst also plugging the source blog. Personally I’ve done this several times before already, with the Charleston from Erik [...]

MxMO – Tequila

MxMO – Tequila

This months Mixology Monday theme is tequila. Up until a month or so back my only experience of tequila was shots of it, with a lick of salt and a bite of lemon, from when I was at university and doing shots was cool. It’s probably these experiences that put me off trying any Tequila [...]
