About Me 


What can I say? I enjoy a good cocktail, but I also want to know the history of Crème de violette and the Aviation cocktail, and I hate gin so I make mine with vodka. I also want to explore the zeitgeist that created it so I watch The Great War on PBS. On the other hand, I  also enjoy reading pulp sci-fi steampunk alternate histories of the WWI era like The Nomad of Time filled with anarchists and airships.


And I want to tell you all about it.

Basically I’m that annoying pontificating drunk at a party who just won’t shut up.


So please enjoy my recipes and send me yours!  I must be honest and admit I haven't updated this site since 2019 because it's too much work for very little reward. However, you can see my most recent creations on my Kindred Cocktails profile. Their site is a billion times better than mine and I post all my best ones from here on there as well as new ones.


Oh, and I also do photography which is another reason I don't do much on here anymore. And I’m not as cool as I look in the photo, and I only rode my scooter once. Since then it's been lingering in my garage, never to be ridden again, much like Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose.


I really only drive a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan and I love it. Don't judge or hate on me.

Lastly, these recipes all include booze, so if you're 21 you don't belong here but it's probably too late now.
