Bourbon Coffee Cocktail
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.

Rob Roy Cocktail With Brandied Cherries
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.

Tonight, The Spare Room in Hollywood hosted a Fernet Branca tasting event with Edoardo Branca, the sixth generation of the iconic Italian family. Branca led us on a tasting through limited vintages of Fernet-Branca from the 70s, 80s & today. My Italian relatives would be proud! Check out my #InstagramStory to see the #BTS
When the @theamateurmixologist asked me to participate in #peacepours, a campaign to celebrate #worldpeaceday today, I wanted to come up with an original cocktail...buuuuut I kept coming back to this Last Word variation I created a few months back. Each element of this lovely drink fits what I had in mind - it's green 🌿, equal parts ✊🏼, includes American and international ingredients, and is a beautiful balance of bitter, sweet, and hella strong 💪🏼 : . . Intense Last Word 3/4 Gin 3/4 Green Chartreuse 3/4 Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur 3/4 Fresh Lime Juice . Shake all ingredients with ice until well chilled. Strain into a cooled coupe glass. Garnish with your favorite herb.
"The Vesper, introduced in 1953 in the very first James Bond book, Casino Royale, is traditionally made with gin, vodka and the dry vermouth, Lillet Blanc. By using the @pompandwhimsy Gin Liqueur in the place of a dry gin, the overall cocktail was slightly sweeter and more floral than a classic Vesper. The slight bitterness from the vermouth and higher alcohol and dryness from the vodka made for a perfectly balanced cocktail in the end. This version had a bit of a lychee martini quality to it....and I wasn’t mad at that." . . .

#sundayvibes are winding down. Here's to an inspired and productive week ahead. But not without a nightcap to toast the weekend! Get this Vesper variation with @pompandwhimsy Gin Liqueur on the most recent #bitbyafoxblog post. Cheers! 🍸
Our reward for coming out to the 107 degree desert so we can escape the LA heat. 😜🍸
Happy Labor Day! California is experiencing quite the heatwave. Luckily, it broke in Los Angeles with a little rain last night. But it's still creeping back to the upper 80s. Summer ain't over yet! We could still use a refreshing Cucumber Ginger Iced Tea in our lives! This is one of those drinks that you forget there's alcohol in it - light, thirst quenching, and tasty! So, take it slow today and make a pitcher to last the afternoon cookout. Swipe through for more pics and the large batch recipe! #bitbyafoxcocktails #bitbyafoxblog
Hollywood was especially otherworldly tonight. As with everything @hendricksgin does, their #hendricksgrandgarnisher event at the @thehollywoodroosevelt was a phantasmagoric experience. Check out my #InstaStory to see some flower crowns and yummy drinks and grand cucumber slicing machines! 🥒 #foxonthetown
