I’ve resorted to making cocktails at home during this socially distant time and, today, I’ve whipped up a Mint White Russian. I don’t normally drink in my own house but, since we can’t go out and I’m trying to make the weekends feel a little more special, this seems to fit the bill.
MIXING UP A MINT WHITE RUSSIAN
A couple of years ago, I picked up mint vodka when we stopped by the super quirky Dragon Distillery on a trip to Frederick, MD. I’m not sure what I thought I was going to do with mint vodka but, it wasn’t our first stop that day.
And, here we are. Getting creative with cocktails to use up mint vodka (though, now I’m wondering if I need to buy another bottle because this is actually going to be my go-to quarantine cocktail). Also, Adam has a weird affection for White Russians, so we always have Kahlúa on hand.
2 oz. Mint Vodka
1 oz. Kalhúa or other coffee-flavored liqueur
1 oz. whole milk
Pour vodka and liqueur over ice. Top with milk (or cream if you’re feeling indulgent). Mix. Cheers!

CHEERS TO LIFE IN THE DISTRICT
I’m a sucker for both glassware (you can see all my bar cart favorites in this post) and maps, so I was thrilled to add these Washington, DC map rocks glasses from Well Told to our lineup. These small glasses are perfect for whiskey or a cocktail pour in moderation, which is what we’re all doing right now, right?!
I’m seeing Well Told Design’s glassware as the perfect bridal shower or housewarming gift. You can find wine glasses, drinking glasses, mason jars, and more all on their website. If we had the room, I’d totally add Richmond and Austin for a well-rounded set of all our places.
WHAT COCKTAILS ARE Y’ALL ENJOYING?
Has anyone else been practicing their amateur mixology skills? I’d love to know what cocktails y’all are creating in your own kitchens and I’m thinking this may become a weekly feature until we get out of isolation…
