occupy your cocktail… P B & J freeze

you know when things just come together perfectly? like your day off and perfect weather? like a yard sale and your long lost trinket? like peanut butter and jelly? like thousands of people sandwiching themselves into tiny liberty square, peacefully and gracefully? when we stand as one, we are greater than the sum of our parts, we are perfection amplified. just… like p b & j. OCCUPY: WE ARE THE 99%

is it a coinkidink that OCCUPY kicked off the same time as mothers by the thousands packed pb & j’s in their kid’s lunch boxes? or that OCCUPY started during the month of VIRGO, the sign of purity, truth and honor? or that the movement to reclaim our freedom kicked off in a square named LIBERTY? or that dogs LOVE peanut butter? who knows… but i do know that this fun cocktail is a quiet way to acknowledge what will become known as the SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION that birthed the FIRST WORLD REVOLUTION.


2 oz red wine
2 bar spoons grape jelly
2 bar spoons creamy peanut butter
1/4 oz agave nectar

puree ingredients in blender. then add ice until the desired consistency is reached. serve in a goblet and garnish with a concord, or similarly colored, grape.

the punch bowl-a must for holiday entertaining

THE PUNCH BOWL by dan searing is a must have for holiday entertaining. that is, if you don’t want to spend all your time behind the bar mixing drinks for your guests, with whom you should be cavorting. yes, pitcher drinks are all the rage, but before pitchers, there were punches. in fact, before we were born, there were punches. some of the recipes in THE PUNCH BOWL are circa 1890. this factual and well photographed book contains both antique recipes and their more modern counterparts. in short, it really is a fantastic collection for novice or the pro… $14.95.

brugal rum: liquid gold with fishnet to match

BRUGAL RUM is one of the dominican republic’s sweetest exports. and one of the niftiest things about BRUGAL RUM is the gold threaded fishnet that each bottle so proudly wears. really kicks it up a notch… makes great hostess gift with a presentation like that!

when we talk of rums, we usually think of light, or dark: mojito or dark & stormy. enter a new word into your rum vocabulary: anejo! anejo means… rested… as in aged forever… as in how BRUGAL tastes: smooooooth and perfect for sipping, but also dandy mixed.

BRUGAL has been manufacturing rum in the dominican republic for over 100 years, and actually created the “dark” category of rum back in 1920. aging their liquid gold in white oak casks, BRUGAL is now considered THE premium dominican rum.
