For as long as I’ve known D, he’s always been more of a hard cider or beer kind of guy. Granted he’s had cocktails before, but since moving to Georgia he’s shown more interest in trying them. For his birthday earlier this month, I ordered a bunch of cocktail making supplies and we went shopping – at various liquor stores – to stock our so-called home bar. For recipes he also got The PDT Cocktail Book, we look online for inspiration, and I suggest options depending on cravings.
We live above a great spot that makes excellent cocktails in downtown Augusta, Georgia so they were also an inspiration. It’s been a collaborative effort, as he mixes the cocktails and most times I figure out the garnish. I’ve been documenting what he’s made with my phone and typically post on my Instagram account. I’ve decided to share them on this blog as well. We don’t always have a cocktail every single evening, but I’ll be updating this post whenever we have a new one!
