Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 6

large

This week’s Tuesday toast falls right at the peak of a mega meteor marathon, making it just the stellar spectacle that begs for some booze . The early weeks of August are an astronomer’s delight as the annual Perseid Meteor Shower falls into orbit, scattering shooting stars by the bounty. A pitcher of Stargazer’s Sangria and the appropriate cinema, sounds, and styles for an evening under the stars are certainly in order…the perfect celebration of sunmer’s dwindling days. So craft this cocktail, get cozy, and make a multitude of wishes on the surplus of shooting stars you’ll spot overhead.

Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 5

August has finally arrived, signally the slow + ever so sad decline of summer.  So as the first Tuesday of this new month rolls around, let’s celebrate rather than sulk, with a custom cocktail and the appropriate accoutrements.

Thirty-one dreamy days of this summer month lie ahead (or did, at the start).  Originally, the month was intended to have only thirty days.  It all traces back to the creation of the calendar by the ancient Romans, which is where today’s drink finds its inspiration.  Julius Caesar’s grandnephew, Augustus, who defeated Marc Antony + Cleopatra to reign as Roman Emperor, is where the month finds its name.  The reason for adding a thirty-first day (and no, not for one last beachside bender)?  So that the ruler’s greatness was not consider lesser than Caesar’s, for which July finds its name.

And with that, the most new knowledge manageable for our mind, we drink (so that we can aptly forget it all).

Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 4

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday…we meet again.  Stuck somewhere between the lost memories of Saturday + Sunday past and those waiting to made in the weekend ahead, you’ve brought on fatigue + foreboding.  Will I ever make it to the week’s end?  With a good, strong dose of creative drinks + stimulating culture, making it to Friday might just be feasible.

With July nearing its final days (sidebar: Noooooooo!), I thought squeezing in some final festivities in honor of the month’s nationwide holiday.  July is National Blueberry Month.  Yes, it’s also National Ice Cream Month, but let’s be honest, we’ve all celebrated that numerous times these past few weeks.  Instead, this week’s helping of cocktail + culture stars the jubilant little berry famous for its minerals + muffins.  Enjoy yourself a Blues-y Tuesday.
