The Cocktail Diaries: Boulevardier

Boulevardier Cocktail | PDXfoodlove

It has been a sparse couple of weeks on the ol’ blog. Some of the reasons are work-related, some are family-related. I keep pretty quiet about very personal things on the blog, so let’s just say there have been some steep emotional ups and downs in the past week and a half. Nothing to worry […]

Whoo. It’s been a busy week already and it’s only Tuesday. At least I think it’s Tuesday. Tomorrow evening begins the first round of Feast Portland parties, and the fun don’t stop until Sunday. I have been working hard both at work and at home to get ahead of the game a little. Blog posts […]

Cocktail Diaries: Whiskey Peach Lemonade

Whiskey Peach Lemonade | PDXfoodlove

It has been a very busy weekend! Saturday was a girls’ day with my friend Aggie and her daughter Sidney. We had an awesome lunch at Bollywood Theater and of course went next door to Salt and Straw for ice cream when there was no line. I tried the apricot and citra hops ice cream […]

Cherry Bourbon Smash | PDXfoodlove

This summer has been so busy! I don’t even know how it is this late in July. On Saturday we were up early to get to boot camp. I spent most of the day working on sewing a dress for a theme party (which was later that night. Note to self: PLAN BETTER NEXT TIME). […]

The Cocktail Diaries: Vieux Carré

It’s been a bit since my last cocktail post, so I’m going to get back into it with a personal favorite. The Vieux CarrĂ© is another piece of the craft cocktail spectrum that comes straight from New Orleans. And it contains a few of the hallmarks of NOLA cocktails, like cognac, Peychaud’s bitters and using […]

The Cocktail Diaires: Sparkling Bourbon Lemonade with Mint

Sparkling Bourbon Lemonade | PDXfoodlove

It is such an epically gorgeous Sunday. It’s about 70 or 75. The sun is out. The clouds are gone. If you sit near the window like I have been, it is warm and pretty soon you’ll be finding yourself wanting a nap. I had my nap, and honestly I’m having trouble doing anything else […]

The Cocktail Diaries: Mint Juleps

Derby Day Mint Juleps | PDXfoodlove

Attention please! I would like the world to know that for ONCE in my blogging life, I made an event-appropriate recipe AHEAD OF TIME. The Kentucky Derby is a full week away and I made a mint julep for this week’s cocktail diaries post. Behold: I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about […]

The Cocktail Diaries: My Favorite Cocktail, the Sazerac

Cocktail Diaries: The Sazerac | PDXfoodlove

I may have had a favorite cocktail in the past (Manhattan? Or I do love a caipirinha…) It’s hard to choose, but since I’ve become a regular whiskey drinker, I am obsessed with the sazerac. This drink is more famously from a specific place than most cocktails. It’s a New Orleans cocktail and NOLA seems […]

The Cocktail Diaries: How to Make an Old Fashioned | PDXfoodlove

There’s a pizza crust a-risin and a cocktail next to my keyboard. This Sunday night is on the right track. This weekend has flown by, and I think the next few will, too. We suddenly have quite a few social engagements going on! It’s almost like the gross winter is ending and everyone is no […]
