Spiders // Something of a French 75

While these two have nothing in common except being a weird conglomerate of brilliance…I just happened to be spinning some Back from the Grave Vol. 7 while shaking up this jive drink.  And the French 75 might be my favorite way to get loose…the perfect mix of gin and bubbles makes anyone wild at heart.  I guess the […]

Drop me in a muggy, salt-stenched, no name town in the islands, please and thank you.  Where the latin beat is so loud it’s all you can do to not gravitate towards it; like an earthquake opening a […]

A Great Fruit Margarita

It’s been freezing here this past winter!  I didn’t sign up for this when I decided to make the Outer Banks my home port.  Below 18 degrees for two to three days straight…doesn’t help that my HVAC kicked the bucket and my gas stove is puffing fumes.  Guess it’s a three dog night in my […]

Der she blows…

Holy smokes! So, this is the beginning…the first post on my first blog for a new business!  It’s been a long time coming and a lot of work but at least there were cocktails along the way!  So to keep it short-n-sweet, a toast to the Goat and all things new in 2015.  What better […]
