Just east of Zone 9, but in Worcester County.
Since there is no place to go, why not? Been swapping daily "shots" with friends. Here are a couple of the better ones over the past few weeks...

In order: Dirty Margarita, Love of a Life Thyme, Classic Zombie, Golden Mai-Tai, and last night's Japanese Fizz.

Anyone else pulling out their books and trying new things?

MrsA is always fussing over some concoction or another. Lately it's been cocktails based on home made strawberry infused vodka.
Other times grapefruit, always fresh squeezed, or lime based.
Takes her a while to get set up and prep, mix, crush ice, etc.
Meanwhile, I pour out a healthy dram of Lagavulin and watch.

Does Vodka ever go bad? I'm moving stuff around on the bottom shelf of my food pantry closet and found a 2 liter of Absolute unopened. I can't even guess how long it's been there. Maybe 5-6 years at least. Was behind and air popper I never use. I don't remember buying it and My last G/f wasn't really a drinker I can't see her spending for it either.

OK, some updates...

This one is supposed to be a Mars Margarita. However, I did not have any Blood Oranges, so the result isn't as red as it should be. Made with:
  • 1/2 oz. blood orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 3/4 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 1/2 oz. tequila
  • sparkling water
Mix the measured shake over ice, and then fill with soda water to taste. I poured over ice because I wanted to keep it cold. Garnish should be the blood orange slices.

Created this one myself:

I call it "Peanut Butter Cup"

Screwball peanut butter whisky, Godiva chocolate liqueur, a little milk for smoothness. My wife, who LOVES peanut butter cups (especially the ones made by the local candy mansions) and her review was quite favorable.

my summertime drink is a Vodka Presbyterian Grey Goose, half sprite, half soda water, top with lemon peel.
It's like drinking flavored water, they go right down.
I Mix vodka with orange vanilla flavored seltzer. Then put it in a drop or two of the MIO:VITAMINS orange vanilla drink mix. That way you get your daily dose of B3 B6 and
B12 😉. Now no one can tell me drinking is not good for my health
