When you visit, you must order the Coffee Grog as dessert. The server prepares the drink before your eyes in spectacular fashion. The drink is so wonderful...creamy, buttery, and served with a cinnamon stick.
Tablespoon brown sugar ( substitute Demerara Sugar if you like)
Dash of Angostura Bitters
4-6 mint leaves
3 oz. Demerara Rum
Dissolve sugar in lime juice, swizzle everything in an old fashioned filled with curshed ice. Add ice to fill. Swizzle again until the glass frosts with ice. Garnish with mint sprig and lime shell

My liver wanted a break from the rum so we decided on Vodka tonight. This is a very simple drink to make and tastes great.
2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Creme De Cocao (white)
1 oz. heavy whipping cream
Shake like hell with ice and serve in a cocktail glass. Dont expect sweet...the creme de cocao is subtle and does not create an over bearing chocolate taste. I added a few dashes of grated nutmeg to change the flavor on the second round. Give it a try.
Finally another update.
I'm in the process of burning a ton of LP's to digital and I will be uploading them as soon as i figure it out. Look for lots of Hawaiian, weird far out stuff.
A shaving update. I've been using Crabtree and Evelyn products for a while. I find that the cream is especially wonderful. It makes great lather and the sents are fantastic if your looking for a real gentleman shave. I suggest Sienna.
The super badger brush from C&E is also a beauty. It's designed by Edwin Jager and it's a monster. The super badger soaks up tons of water and creates the best lather you could hope for. I admit the brush is big, and sometimes I just dont like to use it, but when you really want some super lather this brush wins hands down.
Remember to be good to yourself sometimes and take the time for a really good shave...it can make your day.
Coming up: More drinks and music soon.
