Everyone knows I love bourbon. Here are two delicious drink recipes off the beaten path of “Jim Beam Up”.
Whiskey Sangaree Like Sangria, the name of this cocktail is derived from the Spanish word for blood and was originally made with wine. Nowadays, it is usually mnade with a spirit base. Whatever is used, it is invariably flavored with fresh nutmeg.
6 cracked ice cubes 2 oz bourbon 1 oz simple syrup soda water 1 tsp port pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
Pour whiskey over cracked ice. Add simple syrup and top with soda water. Give a gentle stir and drop in a pinch of nutmeg.
Kentucky Orange Blossom Shake 2 oz bourbon, 1 oz orange juice, and 1/2 oz triple sec with ice until frothy. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of orange.
This fantastic event is coming up on March 26th-27th right here in Flagler County. In its second year, this show is put on my one of my customers. Bill “Pirate” Mills, a retired Navy pilot, runs Blue Sky Yakrobatics. Besides being a fine pilot, he also has great taste in rum and women (tip of the hat to Kimberly).
This will be a super show and a great family day opportunity. Advance tickets will be available beginning February 20 at $5 for adults, $3 for ages 13-17. Kids under 12 get in free (must be accompanied by an adult). The price is right peeps! As an added bonus, meet the pilots at the Golden Lion on Friday March 25th!
The Annual Wings Over Flagler Warbird Fly-In is a joint effort between The Flagler County Airport and local Warbird Enthusiast Bill Mills of Blue Sky Yakrobatics. The idea for WOF started from a casual conversation, the county’s desire to host an Airshow, and the passion of Blue Sky Yakrobatics to bring aviation to a larger audience. The success of our first event lead to the development of Mills Aviation Charities, Inc. (MAC) a Non- Profit Corporation dedicated to raising aviation awareness, preserving aviation history, educating, and providing less fortunate youth with the opportunity to follow their aviation dreams. This is going to be a great partnership for the community.
Pilots from all over the country enjoy a venue to share their aircraft. Wings Over Flagler gives our community the opportunity to come out and learn about the history of the aircraft and meet the pilots that fly them. Each year we will endeavor to make the Wings Over Flagler Event one you won’t want to miss! *wingsoverflagler.com
I’m very excited to announce that I had my first interview with Wayne & Laurie over at 5 O’Clock Lifestyle today. We chatted about tiki drinks and how I came to be a bartender in Florida. I hope to continue as a regular contributor. I will post an announcement when their newest episode is finished and ready to be downloaded!
Was checking in on LinkedIn (which I really should do more often) and found what I consider to be the perfect one-line definition of social networking
Think of LinkedIn as your job, Facebook as a friend or family get-together, and Twitter as a bar or nightclub you frequent for happy hour.
I must admit, I have yet to find a real benefit to LinkedIn. I understand that “professionals” (e.g. business managers, doctors, teachers, professors) use it to interact and network with others in their respective fields while keeping their Family Feud game scores to friends and family. For me, the “purveyor of good times”, there really isn’t much boundary between work & play.
