Some say I drink too much, others say I think too much…

…and I never shut up. 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!  Oh, and I also do photography. And I’m not as cool as I look in the photo – I mostly drive a minivan.

Send me your cocktails and comments:

Success! Message received.
