To arms.


I’ve been interested in melee weapons ever since I was a kid, but my interest in cocktails really didn’t develop until I had kids.

Never liked martinis, or or gin and tonics, the blue stuff the barber keeps his scissors in, or anything else that tastes like witch hazel.

I want my daiquiri frilly, bartender, and I want it now.

We use The Ultimate Book of Cocktails around here for day-to-day mixology, but my go-to, it’s Friday-night-at-eight-o-clock-and-it’s-time-to-get-my-Downton-Abbey-on cocktail is a Long Island Iced Tea prepared by the lovely and talented Mrs. Zheng3. Here’s her recipe:

Mrs. Zheng3’s Long Island Iced Tea

Contains 3.25 shots of booze. Be careful.

3/4 shot Triple Sec
3/4 shot vodka
3/4 shot white rum
1/2 shot gin
1/2 shot tequila
2 tablespoons frozen lemonade concentrate
1 shot sours mix
1/4 freshly squeezed lemon
splash of non-diet Coca-Cola

Mix in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge and serve.
