While the blog has seemed to linger in hibernation, know that there are stirrings about and things to come. However, while completely lost in about seven brazillian projects I’m working on, I got word that this month Mixology Monday was going all Tiki. How could I resist submitting one of my current projects for consideration [...]
The merry months continue to pass on by in their irresistible march towards a future full of rum and riches for yours truly (that is where we’re headed right? I really hope this isn’t like the time I got on the wrong train and ended up in Oceanside when I meant to go to LA). Of course, such a passing of time inevitably brings us our next Mixology Monday.

Vermouth is also the theme for this month’s Mixology Monday, graciously hosted by the the pseudonymous “Vidiot” at the Cocktailians blog. As Vidiot notes, [...]
For a second there I was worried that Mixology Monday might miss the entire month of September. I’m sure you were worried too. And if you weren’t, just pretend that you were to make me feel better.
