This is a tale of two cocktails. The first, a failure, the second a success. When I read that Booze Nerds chose the theme “Resin” for the world-web-wide Mixology Monday, I immediately thought of a favorite winter seasonal beer of mine, Magic Hat’s “Wooly,” and was ready to make my first time participating in the monthly mixology call for recipes.
A couple weeks ago I celebrated my birthday with a few different treats, including a wonderful barbeque with Jesse and his wife Prathima. In exchange for their hospitality, delicious homemade food, european-style cakes and oysters, I brought over my most recent cocktail creation. Serendipitously, the aperitif paired extremely well with the Rhode Island, Wellfleet, and Blue Point oysters that we shucked ourselves.
