Artisanal Cocktails: Drinks Inspired by the Seasons from the Bar at Cyrus

For the many people who are fans of mixing parties with alcoholic drinks, there are many types of drinks that can be served at these occasions. Some of these drinks are served straight from the bottle into glasses that are filled with ice cubes. Others however are of a mixed nature. These mixed drinks will have a number of different alcoholic beverages in them to give the drink a unique flavor. There is another fact that is very interesting about mixed drinks.

Most of these mixed drinks that we like to have come from various other countries and as some people taste them various other ingredients are added. In some cases the bartenders will mix these new drinks with a few other combinations just to see what these new mixed drinks are like. Of course these new mixed drinks need to be refined before they are served to the discerning public.

Once these mixed drinks have reached the stage where they are fit for customer tasting the bartender will think of a new name to give their creation. These names will have to be original otherwise the various customers will ask for two different drinks that seem to bear the same name. To solve this problem a bartender can use the bartender black book to see the various drinks and mixed drinks that are being used.

Now when you look on the internet you will see that these mixed drinks have very exotic sounding names like Sex on the Beach, Coconut Pussycat, Top Banana, Fairy from Hell, Godiva Whisper and many others. In addition these mixed drinks seem to span the entire range of alcoholic drinks as part of their taste foundations.

This means that to get these delicious mixed drinks Vodka, Champagne, Gin, Tequila, Cognac, Rum and many others will be used. Sometimes these will be used as the base of the mixed drinks. At other times they will be part of the mixed drink itself and impart their own distinctive taste to the mixed drinks. Now if you want to make some of these mixed drinks at home you should find and use drink books that detail the various ingredients that are needed and the way that you should create this drink.

As there are so many varieties of mixed drinks, in the world of mixed drinks it sometimes pays to find the drink that appeals to you. There are many ways that you can fulfill this journey and hopefully have some fun in the process too. Saluté!

Lagavulin is from Islay. A distinct island region renounced for producuing peaty whiskies. 4 distilleries especially produce whiskies BIG in peat: Laphroaig, Port Ellen (silent now!), Ardbeg (reopened) and Lagavulin followed by the medium peat distilleries Bowmore and Caol Ila then the least peaty Bruichladdich and Bunnahabhain. Lagavulin 16 is the flagship of this distillery. On the nose, sea breeze, sea mist, peat, sweet sherry, sweet maltiness, gun powder and smoke. Very complex nose! More of the above mixed in harmoniously with a velvety, full and round body. The finish is powerful and long with sustained peat and dark chocolate. The single malt is heavenly scoring extra points on complexity. Not a style for the faint hearted and can be a shock to the system! Just a note, I often serve a good malt whisky (or two or three!) rather than dessert wines after dinner. Is this an after dinner malt? Yes but for me an all day 24 hours malt! Yahoo!

Product Description
Published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, the first edition of Jancis Robinson’s seminal volume immediately attained legendary status, winning every major wine book award including the Glenfiddich and Julia Child/IACP awards, as well as writer and woman of the year accolades for its editor on both sides of the Atlantic. Combining meticulously-researched fact with refreshing opinion and wit, The Oxford Companion to Wine offers almost 4,000 entries on every wine-related topic imaginable, from regions and grape varieties to the owners, connoisseurs, growers, and tasters in wine through the ages; from viticulture and oenology to the history of wine. Tracing the consumption and production from the ancient world to the present day, the Companion is a remarkable resource for gaining further appreciation for a beverage whose popularity has only increased with time.

Now exhaustively updated, this third edition incorporates the very latest international research to present over 400 new entries on topics ranging from globalization and the politics of wine to brands, precision viticulture, and co-fermentation. Hundreds of other entries have also undergone major revisions, including yeast, barrel alternatives, climate change, and virtually all wine regions. Useful lists and statistics are appended, including controlled appellations and their permitted grape varieties, as well as wine production and consumption by country.

Illustrated with maps of every important wine region in the world, useful charts and diagrams, and stunning color photography, this Companion is unlike any other wine book, offering an understanding of wine in its many wider contexts – notably historical, cultural, geographic, and scientific – and serving as a truly companionable point of reference into which any wine-lover can dip, browse, and linger.
Amazon.com Review
With more than 3,000 entries on every aspect of wine from vine pests to specific grapes, this hefty tome has something for both the seasoned connoisseur and novice alike. Edited by one of today’s premier wine columnists, the work covers all aspects of wine, travelling back in time to early Greece to examine wine’s role in Dionysian revels, then returning to today’s wine centers to explore all aspects of wine appreciation. A full third of the book is dedicated to specific wines and wine-producing regions. All those technical terms you’ve heard and puzzled over at tastings are clearly explained, making this the perfect reference for newcomers to the world of oenology.

For the true connoisseur, The Oxford Companion offers detailed information on the history of the vintner’s art, as well as a plethora of details on everything from climate effects on vine disease to the function of the second malolactic fermentation. If you buy only one wine book, this should be it.

The Oxford Companion to Wine, 3rd Edition

So what exactly is a cocktail dress? My mom tells me that a cocktail dress I one that ends around your knees as opposed to being full length. But does it count if it hits mid calf? I have always been confused on this. My mom calls anything around your calf tea length but I think she made this up a long time ago. Or her mom made it up and she just stuck with it.


I looked up cocktail dresses on the internet and they seem to be in all shapes and sizes, they just aren’t full length gowns. There is a wide array of things available out there. Cocktail dresses for garden parties, some more appropriate for weddings. I think the word cocktail dress encompasses a lot. I even found websites devoted solely to plus size cocktail dresses, or so they claimed.


I was intrigued when I saw these sites claiming to be devoted solely to plus sizes so I investigated. The do have some very nice things; however you can understand my confusion when I see that half of the models are stick thin. This sight says it caters to plus sizes, leading you to believe that the dresses are for larger women. But then you look at the dress and the girl wearing it can’t weigh more than 110 pounds. I admit I am not exactly sure what constitutes a plus size but I am pretty sure it is not a size two.


For some reason I finds this kind of angers me. The culture in the US is one that makes 12 year old girls anorexic and puts 8 year olds on diets. I feel this situation is just another example of what is wrong with our society. A girl goes on a site claiming to cater to people wearing here size, and of course wants to see what the dress will look like on someone like her, only to be confronted with a thin lizzy string back at her. Well I wonder how that makes her feel?

Melissa Wayan has ripped apart everything she knows about plus size clothing. Her latest article covers discount plus size lingerie.

I am twenty one but I have gained weight siginificantly in the last two years, I love to exercise but I need to get my eating (and what I eat) under control. The only thing about this is I like to go out with my friends on weekends and drink, I do not eat any fatty foods while out but I believe the drinking is still having a huge effect on my weight. What alcoholic beverage can I consume that doesnt contain many calories and still proceed with weight loss?
FYI Im not fond of dark soda (if any at all) I would usually mix with tea, sprite, or my ultimate fav cranberry juice
