Shopping Run: Bevmo
Typically I am not allowed to go into Bevmo unsupervised. Usually, my wife must accompany me so that we can pay rent for the month. However, I showed some restraint on my latest Bevmo run.
Building a bar from scratch is a daunting task when you have such a wide range of drinks that you like to make. I am learning to buy things that can be used in multiple drinks.
On this Bevmo run I grabbed Angostura Orange Bitters because I love orange bitters and how versatile they are, Peychaud's Bitters so I can make a Sazerac, and Crème de Mure so I can make a Bramble. Throw in some Ginger Beer and it was a successful trip.
The funniest, or saddest depending on how you look at it, part of last night was that I made a drink that didn't use any of those ingredients. I made a Bees Knees instead. Oh well, such is the life of a cocktail maker.
