  1. Oooh, the White Lotus sounds good.

  2. I am loving this virtual cocktail party.

  3. So when you go to a bar do you say, make me something I have never had? How do you end up with all these recipes? I had a delightful cocktail at a restaurant but was afraid to ask how they made it.

    1. This is the thing about sitting at the bar. I have a bunch of these in the bartender's handwriting. A lot easier to ask if you're bantering anyway. Usually I order off the cocktail menu, but I'll next post one that a bartender "made for me."
