Valentine's Day can be a stinker if you're solo. But there's always booze! And chocolate! And good friends! This year I went in for all of that when I partnered with the lovely gents and cooking savants, @husbandsthatcook! I created two cocktails inspired by a homemade coffee liqueur I made recently and they created a mocha lava cake that is BEYOND.

The Rob Roy, made with just scotch and sweet vermouth, is a variation on a Manhattan, but doesn't get nearly as much attention! While it isn’t always served as an “equal parts” drink, in Kara Newman's new cocktail book celebrating all things equal parts, Shake. Stir. Sip., she provides an equal parts recipe that works wonderfully.

Who run the world...? Fierce AF women! For #InternationalWomensDay, I'd like to salute the ladies we've been so fortunate to document in our #BartenderStyle series on the Bit by a Fox blog. As well as the beyond talented photographer responsible for capturing these forces of nature, Rose Callahan. These women continue to grind it out, inspiring men and women alike in an industry full of challenges. Check out our bartender style archives to read about each of these incredible women. 📸 @rcallahanphoto #werk #wcw #womencrushwednesday

The Glenfiddich Project XX was created from an experimental training exercise for the distillery’s international team of Brand Ambassadors. 20 of them selected a cask of their very own and Master Distiller Brian Kinsman then combined these casks with outstanding results. Seriously, to date, my favorite Glenfidditch I've been lucky to try. Thanks for the sneak preview last night, @glenfiddichwren & @glenfiddichus #ProjectXX #glenfiddich

Happy #AbsintheDay! Ten years ago today, absinthe was made legal again in the United States. The "Green Fairy" was banned for nearly 100 years here and worldwide. Unfortunately, because of that, there are still so many misconceptions and romantic notions (not entirely unfounded) surrounding this anise-y beverage that was at one time more popular than wine in France. . Tomorrow, in honor of this momentous anniversary, the Bit by a Fox blog will dive into some of the history of absinthe, how the ban in the states got overturned, and what the future of La Fée Verte looks like, all accompanied by beautiful shots of the stuff by photographer Rose Callahan. We'll also feature top brand picks from absinthe educator and man about town, Kellfire Bray (@kellfire). . Until then, toast the Green Fairy's triumphant return today and louche it up! . 📸 by @rcallahanphoto at @maisonpremiere #nationalabsintheday #absinthe #greenfairy #lafeeverte
