Those of you who know me well, may find this next announcement a little incongruous… I’ve begun to write two columns on cocktails for the State of Maine’s publication, Maine Spirits. While at first blush, my low alcohol consumption may seem a bit odd for the writer of such a pursuit. On the other hand, cocktail creation is just another form of gastronomy and it’s in that vein that I approach this new project.
Last night the journey began. I started with a trusted source, Jamie Oliver, and made an Elderflower Tom Collins (watch the video). I must say, it was a good start. This morning, I then went out to restock our liquor cabinet and am now ready to roll. First on the list is a Blood Orange Margarita. I’ll letcha know how it goes.
