In case you hadn’t noticed…it’s fall! And that means, until Christmas takes over, all food stuff is all about pumpkin, including beer! I recently did a pumpkin beer tasting and selected my favorite pumpkin beer as my beer of the month. In doing the taste test though, I also tried making a pumpkin beer float with some of the non-winners, and the results were amazing.
This month’s beer of the month is a beer that I recently tried and now can’t get enough of – Green Flash Brewing Co.’s Le Freak. It’s called Le Freak (or at least I gather that it’s called Le Freak) because it’s a Belgian Trippel and IPA cross. I know, weird, right? But it’s amazingly good.
Seeing as it’s October and officially fall, it probably comes as no surprise that this month’s beer of the month is a seasonal pumpkin ale – Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.
I was promising myself that this summer that I would use more clear spirits in my cocktails, but I haven’t been very good about that, and instead have found myself reverting to my whiskey ways. But that all stops with this Vodka cocktail! One Sunday evening, I was looking at the mint and cucumber sitting around and thought, that screams Vodka, and the Cucumberbund Cocktail was born.
