Not to be outdone by his former college classmate Ocean Spray Brad, Discovery Doug just sent a link to a cool NYT column.
Pete Wells, a former F&W writer and a definite M&G favorite, put together an interesting and really quite informative overview of useful tools for the summertime home bartender. After reading only a few paragraphs, I'm already in love with the idea of using agave nectar instead of simple syrup (so easy!). I also think I might steal a chili or two from our backyard plants to make an infused vodka. What else will we do with all those habaneros? And wouldn't spicy vodka make a great bloody Mary?
