Seattle Magazine Cocktail Catch Up

The seasons are changing, but one thing remains: I’ve been lucky enough to keep writing about swell Seattle bars and such for the super Seattle Magazine. In case you’ve missed any (and I’m sure you haven’t, but just in case), below is a trio of charmers that will have you hopping out to local spots – if you live in Seattle, of course. If you don’t, come visit:

Tea Up with Four Leaf Spirits

As you know (because I’ve told you) Washington State’s distillers are a dandy, creative, amazing bunch. They just keep putting out more and more tasty, imaginative, treats for drinkers here and there and everywhere. Case in point: I recently wrote about Four Leaf Spirits, a distillery based in Woodinville who makes tea-infused liqueurs and spirits, as well as rums under the Puget Sound Rum Company name. Want to learn more? Of course you do! Read the article cleverly-titled: How One Seattle Distillery Is Using Tea to Infuse Spirits and then start tracking down some bottles.

Sip the Grandeza Old Fashioned at Moctezuma – or at Home

Took a trip south to Southcenter not too long ago (if you consider “long ago” in the way I’m thinking), and stopped at the friendly and tasty Mexican restaurant Moctezuma. Not only did I have some delicious dishes, but also got to try new-ish (at the time!) orange liqueur Grandeza, a lush, rich tipple made by the owner of Moctezuma. I had it both straight and in the Grandeza Old Fashioned – and then wrote it up for the also lush Seattle magazine. So you can easily learn about Grandeza and learn to make the Grandeza Old Fashioned. Neat!

Try the Song at Midnight at Peony

I recently (well, in the grand scheme of time) trotted over the water to what we in Seattle call the east side, to stop in at Bellevue’s Peony, a 1930s-in-Shanghai-inspired bar and restaurant. There I had the swell sipper, the Song at Midnight, named for a classic Chinese movie, which marries well with the bar’s vibe. And then I got to write about it, and put the recipe for it, in the also swell Seattle magazine. That means you (yes you) can read all about the Song at Midnight. Fun all around!

The Ultimate Ninja at Pablo y’ Pablo

Sometimes writing about drinks is awesome (okay, it always is). But sometimes it’s even better, and recently, I had one of those times, getting to write about a drink which pays homage to a sadly-departed former coworker and friend. The world of the bar is a place that’s sometimes hectic, sometimes nutty, but also a place where many good people become good friends around good drinks. But don’t listen to me ramble, go read the story about The Ultimate Ninja, a drink at Seattle bar Pablo y Pablo, which I wrote about for Seattle Magazine.
