Mini Whiskey Dispensers

DSC_0681

I’ve always loved this idea of something being served at the table. I love this idea, too, of “serving yourself”. I mean like, I don’t work for you, ha. You want to drink, dispense it yourself. Ages ago I did this entire whiskey post and found myself at TUTHILLTOWN Distilleries, and received great service from […]

Stone dispenser ….

Screen shot 2014-08-07 at 10.17.20 AM

There’s something going on, like I previously stated, with stones or concrete. From jewelry to alcohol dispensers …. It’s all interrelated, again, Like I said and keep saying. This one is kind of cool but I’ve already done the “champagne” dispenser thing. So I just don’t care all that much. But if you like this, […]

Wine as Beer….?

UnionWineCo_Wine-in-a-can-3

These wines are convenient because they are packaged in cans. I love that. I saw some “mobile” wine dispensers, you know the ones in the paper cartridges or whatever, I felt it was somewhat questionable. Or inconvenient. There are also a lot of mobile wine options. For example, you will have already seen individually sealed […]

I think I’ve reached the end…

gallery-whiskey1

I had one kind lady e-mail me back the other day (who is a long time fan…) mentioned that for her Whiskey was a problem, not because it is bad in and of itself, but because it’s something she uses to fall asleep at night. I guess, I wrote back, I’m the same way. I […]

No fuss entertaining, simple shots …

You could go on a weird Sandra Lee style craft binge decorating your living space with all sorts of disposable goods. You could dig pinterest and try to outdo your other girlfriends who had some clever setup. Or you can buy some culinary syringes and call it a day. Use your brain seriously, it works? […]

Cold creek brewing …

il_fullxfull.310862470

I found these set of wooden products by COLD CREEK BREWING…Usually I like things to look hi-tech and re-dubbed for something more futuristic but it’s fine, I’m obsessed enough with this catalogue to share it here. I initially saw this 90 degree wine rack floating on top of a doorway and I thought it looked […]

Frozen watermelon cocktail with Vodka

IMG_3084

You can think of this as a watermelon slurpee, but looser. This recipe starts out with two watermelons, and the inspiration is from one of my favorite restaurants in Queens, SikGaek. They do a larger watermelon cocktail there spiked with soju but I much prefer this with Vodka. You can use whatever you want, just […]

Spicy Dirty Martini

IMG_3118

This is a different kind of dirty martini. I usually take a martini either dry (meaning nothing but vodka) or very dirty. You can consider this martini extra dirty, as it doesn’t involve olive juice. The juice I used to mix with vodka here is not only very spicy but adds a vinegary punch to […]

Edible Bomb Shot

So it turns out I was lying on my couch watching Terms of Endearment, and this familiar scene sparked just enough motivation. Aurora on her first date, asking for whiskey. “Preferably wild turkey” she says. Due to Instagram’s 15 second stipulation, the film scene is posted before the video. If you follow the account you’ll […]

Champagne and Strawberries

If you follow me on instagram I am doing short videos including food & drink. There will be garments included.. only because… it would be totally weird and inappropriate if I wasn’t wearing any. In this video I’m wearing a Luxirare black oxford top with rhinestone beads and sides flushed with black tulle. Anyhow, all […]

Edible Christmas Tree

IMG_9996

My philosophy on Christmas and holiday festivities in general is that all the family and friend gathering stuff comes second to the bottom line: Eating. What can I say? I coast holiday events to see what kinds of delicious foods I’ll get to consume- hopefully for free. Shameful, but too true. But…there’s slight a problem […]

New Payard

Recently I or (we) stopped by JG Melons’ to get a burger (not something I do on routine, but geographically it was the best place to get a burger). I thought their burgers were perfection but also I’ve never met a burger I didn’t like, so it’s not like JG Melon’s can become a superlative […]

Sangria Soda

DSC_0092

This sangria was part of another recipe I was about to post, I always like to add a drink with a meal in my post, otherwise it feels so incomplete, but since there are so many photos here I just had to divide and conquer. The situation with Sangria is similar to making a fantastic […]

Hot Pot

DSC_0264

Fall food: something hot, satisfying and maybe even a little fatty. It’s true, I tend to eat more when the weather gets chillier. A smoker may wish his paranoia away, thinking, how nice would it be if I could smoke on and on and never worry about lung cancer. For fall I may have similar, […]

Lobster Roll Redux

DSC_0088

Do you like Lobster Rolls? Yes…? So do I. But today I am only here to use up leftovers. A bunch of green needs to be pulled out because I’ll forget and then a week later they will turn brown. I believe there are a million and one ways to make filling for a lobster […]

Upside Down

A quick browse through a shop and I had to pick up this clever little beer glass, by the same company that made those frozen shot glasses possible (remember the molds?). You will find the beer glasses here if you’re looking for a new way to serve beer.

Saveur Dinner & Test Kitchen

DSC_5751

Now I don’t think I really need to ask if people know what Saveur Magazine is. I happened to be nominated for an award in one of their categories, for best recipe, guess which recipe? Crispy Penne. Okay so I remain a nominee (nice name for *ahem* LOSER!) but I did get to go to […]

Bar Pleiades

DSC_0263

One constant question I’ve gotten since starting this blog is where to sit down and have a drink in New York City. I am not a seasoned expert at all but my favorite bar right now is in the Surrey Hotel. And there are many bougie hotel bars scattered in the city, four seasons..Plaza Athenee, […]

Whiskey Sour

DSC_3836

Do you like my new Whiskey dispenser? It’s quite efficient actually, just turn the handle 90 degrees. And turn again 90 degrees to lock. Now onto the sour. Lots and lots of fresh lemon juice. Please do not use lemonade. These are simply the best cocktail syrups I’ve found recently. By Royal Rose. ‘Handmade’, ‘artisanal’, […]

World of Whiskey and Leather

DSC_0394_2

Lapel cut with perforated leather. Ever since this post, I’ve been getting requests for that particular style jacket. The thing with this first draft of the quilted biker jacket was that, well it was a rough draft. There were details I wanted to edit and comb over perfectly. And yes because I know that there […]
