As Praias Desertas


We're still on hiatus.. planning the last Winter Sports of the season and working on the new recipe and photo book.  50 original cocktail recipes from the last two seasons, and nearly 500 of Josh's beautiful photographs.. I'm looking forward to finishing it and getting it out there!  Here are some photos from the last night.  See you all soon.

Tomorrow Night

Episode Five.

Tomorrow night is 2011's fifth episode of Winter Sports.  Hope everyone can make it out!  As always, we've got a menu of four new drinks for the evening.. and in keeping with the weather we've been having, the menu this month reads like a rollercoaster ride up and down the liquor cabinet.  I won't spoil the surprise too much, but here's a preview:

Natura & Futurisme.  Cynar and Cointreau in crushed ice, not too much and not too little, topped with a little spring growth of mint.

..Also, if you see Seth tomorrow night, be sure to wish him bon voyage and an awesome next chapter.  Brother is moving to New York City this week, and this is his last weekend in town!  So let's do it up!  See you tomorrow.

Deep-Rooted Gilt.

Episode IV, Tomorrow Night.

Please join us tomorrow night for the 4th installment of the 2010-2011 season of Winter Sports..  it will be good to see everyone!  All of that cold and love in February needs to be balanced out by some warmth and dangerousness.  To that end we've got some amazing new drinks.. here are two of them.

The Desperate Measure.  Keeping warm while you sweet-talk your way in on a cold night.   Courvoisier and some Italian Amaros served neat with an orange twist.  

Blonde Redhead.  Like a fetish for shoegazing.  A glass of Champagne meets Maraschino and Port, served tall with a slice of blood orange.

See you tomorrow night!

Your stylish presence in requested at my place on Saturday night, January 22nd, for third episode of Winter Sports this season.

For anyone new to this thing, Winter Sports is a seasonal bar that I started in my house to fight off the blues and greys of Seattle winter.  As always, this month we have four new cocktail recipes and a selection of Winter Sports "classics" from last years' games.  Great drinks, music, and beautiful people..  can't ask for anything more.  

This month we'll also be trying something new that I'm really excited about:  WE'RE GOING TO COUNT THE DRINKS WE MAKE.  Yes!  Periodically we may shout out how many Ted and the crew have mixed up.. and hope for a milestone.  Like, 500 drinks!  Or, since that may kill Ted, how about we start by aiming for 100? 

As always, Ted will be manning the bar, with the help of Josh and Sara, and Josh will also continue taking those amazing photos of his.  We continue to be able to operate on donations, so keep that in mind as you work your way down the menu!  Suggested donation is like 20$, but hey, we don't discriminate, alright?

I'll send out more updates as we finalize the menu and finish up our prep. Hope to see you all Saturday night!
