Waltzing along

Along with a lovely drink, I got the song “Waltzing Matilda” stuck in my head. Though, since I only know the chorus, I suppose it could be worse. This is a lovely cocktail for a rainy afternoon. I love the allspice dram and found it to be the perfect accent to a great rye base.  It was great to pull out my Averna again, too. If you don’t have a bottle of this, you need to go hit the liquor store soon. Averna is a great multi-purpose amaro. Recipe via Punch

Light my fire

Although I had to sacrifice my favorite mixing glass for tonight’s cocktail, I dare say it was worth it.  Incredibly simple (except for the flaming orange garnish part — still mastering that), and really tasty.  This might be a good drink for trying out new whisk(e)ys.  Via Imbibe Unfiltered.
