Charred Memories for MxMo LXXVI

17 Aug

mxmologoIt’s a searing, steaming, scorching hot August here in Italy, and no climate could be more fitting for this month’s MxMo theme: FIRE!!
This time we have the honor of being led by Muse of Doom, one of the most talented bloggers in the booze-blogging universe, and here you can read all about the chosen theme. Make sure you pay her a visit every once in a while, because not only does she come up with great recipes and even better names, but she’s probably the most active person on the net in spreading other people’s word around.. a true Muse of this movement!!
I was worried about not having enough time to contribute, given that I spent my past two weeks on holidays, but luckily I managed to find some spare time as soon as I got back home, so fire away!!

“Recycle” for MxMo LXVI

13 Oct

I decided to get back into blogging, and no occasion could have been better than a new MxMo event.
This little concoction is called Recycle, as an homage to the “bein’ green theme”.


1,5 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
0,5 oz. Laphroaig 10 years Scotch
0,75 oz. Fresh lemon juice
0,75 oz. Simple syrup
1 bunch of fresh sage
5/6 slices of fresh ginger
0,25 Chartreuse Verte.


Muddle sage and ginger with the lemon juice, then pour Hendrick’s, laphroaig and simple syrup. Shake well and double strain over crushed ice. Float Chartreuse on top, guarnish with a bunch of sage and a slice of cucumber… I used an old jam jar as a glass, since we have plenty of them at the bar and either we trash them or we “recycle” them this way.
Overall, as a cocktail, summer ingredients with that hint of smokiness to remind us of the incoming autumn… hope u like it see ya for next one!!!!!!!!
