A borrowed idea

Today I saw the posted results of the cross-blog "Cookie Exchange". Some of our dear lady-friends like Hermione and Ronnie have donned their most butt-flattering aprons and are offering up their contributions for some holiday cookie ideas. And while baking cookies is not a gender-unique  endeavor, it is pretty apparent that there is an obvious paucity of male blogger contributions. So guys (and ladies too if you wish) who would like to participate in a "Holiday Cocktail Exchange" to go along with all of those delicious cookies?


Let's keep it quick, simple and easy: if you want to contribute your suggestion for a cocktail you feel is perfect for the Holidays (it can be a retro-classic, a neo-classic, or even your own concoction, even "nada" cocktails are welcome) and you are not limited to one .....but let's not overwhelm with too many, maybe a maximum of three? 


The execution will be the same as the ladies......you post your recipe on your own blog and try to link the other participating  blogs in your post. 


The target date will be Tuesday, December 17th (next week.....still plenty of time to participate and yet offer ideas in time for others to use them). I will welcome any other blogger who wants to help spread the word and let's see if we can act as a jovial complement to what the lovely ladies are doing. 


If you are going to participate, drop me a line here and I will include your blog in my list when I post my recipe(s) on Tuesday.

  1. If I looked like one of those guys (or that woman) I'd be naked all the time. The challenge would be to get me INTO clothes.

    1. You can keep your clothes on or off while mixing, Tomy.......but by all means offer up a good recipe!

  2. I won't be much help on this one or on Hermione's cookie party. I'm a wine and beer guy, and I don't cook anything other than ribs.

    1. I know you've always said that, but hey.....life is short. Why not branch out a bit? ;-)

    2. I went for martinis a few weeks ago and woke up on my floor. :-)

      Though, I do like tequila very, very much. But, straight only.

    3. I believe there is a famous quote from Dean Martin who opined that "you're not drunk if you can lay on the floor without holding on," Or something to that effect.

      Martinis (with gin mind you) are the epitome of cocktails. They are the Modern Minimalist version of alcoholic simplicity and perfection.

      Recently a friend of mine that i have known since my sophomore year at college, went on a camping trip with me to a State park with alcohol restrictions. He is a 'brown liquor' fan preferring bourbon to most other things. yet to disguise the booze I wanted to relax with in the evening by the campfire, I premixed martinis and poured them into plastic spring water bottles. Given little choice, he opted to join me.....and he enjoyed a drink he had been denouncing for years!

    4. And yes, tequila is best consumed straight if it's a good one. I only really like tequila in the summer though. Oh and a lesser tequila mixed into a Margarita isn't bad every now and then ;-)

  3. Sooo... Drink recipes? I do have a few favorites, perhaps even our friend Dan will enjoy!

    2. So, may I suggest we call it "The Holiday (or Christmas, your choice) Cocktail Party?"

    3. I'm fine with that. I only used the other phrase to tie it in to the cookie thing, but we can definitely call it whatever sounds best.

  4. Sounds like a good idea! I'll work something up!

  6. Hi KD,

    I'd love to join in, and I have a favourite, very Canadian recipe to share.
