A Blood Orange and Meyer Lemon Sour for Christmas
24 December 2022
I found blood oranges and Meyer lemons at my local farm market. Blood oranges
are these very deep dark red fruits that taste more like oranges than one would
think. It’s also smaller. A Meyer lemon is a sweeter lemon with a softer skin.
These fruits are both really good, but what if these were combined into one
drink. Since citrus fruits were given as gifts in Pennsylvania Dutch families
I’ve decided this would be a good time to talk about this concept.
A Blender Muddled Julep Inspired Strawberry Cocktail
05 June 2021
So I had some inspiration with some fresh strawberries and some
homegrown mint, so I decided to try to make a blender muddled cocktail.
Blender muddling is a technique described in “Liquid Intelligence” by
Dave Arnold. It’s designed to maximize flavor extraction while
minimizing oxidation. I think this is really simple and flavorful
cocktail. This recipe I have described will serve 3 people.
