I was turned on to the beauty and deliciousness of the combo of bourbon and ginger beer by my friends Russell and Christine. R&C are are total ginger beer aficionados, special ordering it by the case from Full Throttle Bottle in Georgetown. I came across a recipe for ginger beer from this great blog about cocktails (which is also where I found the vermouth recipe), and thought “I can make that!”
This batch turned out less gingery than I anticipated, having added about twice as much as last time. But still is delicious with a splash of Makers!
For the past 4 or 5 years I’ve been donating my poster design skills to Noise for the Needy, a Seattle-based nonprofit that raises money for charitable causes through the production of live music shows. This year’s NFTN proceeds will go to benefit Teen Feed, which serves over 11,000 meals each year to over 600 homeless youth in the Seattle area. If you live in Seattle you should check out some shows! The festival runs June 10th to the 13th. I’ll definitely be at the C’est la Mort/Jupe Jupe/Chadwick show on the 12th at the Mars Bar. Hope to see you there!
