Ruby Road Cocktail

Ruby-Road-2

Well, I made that Homemade Raspberry Liqueur and this is the first drink I’ve put it in. Tart, Minty, Fernet-y, Raspberries. I’m gonna drink 10,000 of these… or until I run out of Raspberry Liqueur.

Ruby Road Cocktail

  • 1/2 oz Mint infused Simple Syrup
  • 1/4 oz Fernet Branca
  • Lime Peel

Brunch Bonanza: Wandering Wasp

Wandering Wasp

Welcome to Brunch Bonanza. The segment where we talk about brunch cocktails!

Happy Week-end to you all! May this bright and refreshing Bourbon cocktail bring even more joy to your brunching. The name of this drink comes from an incident where my girlfriend and I were trying to chase a wasp out of our apartment and the silly thing just would not leave! It kept wandering from room to room, meandering about. When we finally ejected the wasp through the bathroom window, we needed a drink! Wandering Wasp
