    Tonight's cocktails:

    Pear Elderflower Martini

    (from: https://kitchenswagger.com/pear-elderflower-martini-recipe/)

    2 ounces pear vodka (Grey goose La Poire is definitely best. I tried the Absolute Pear for a while and there really is no comparison.)
    1/2 ounce St. Germain Elderflower Liquer
    1 ounce lemon juice
    1 ounce simple syrup

    Pour all ingredients into a shaker with some ice. Shake well. Strain into glass. Garnish with a slice of pear if you'd like, but I never have pears on hand, so I rarely do that.

     

    Will's Favorite Martini

    2 ounces Uncle Nearest 1856 Whiskey
    1 ounce Dolin Rouge Sweet Vermouth (the red one)
    2 drops (DROPS not dashes) Angostura bitters
    1 drop (again DROP) Orange bitters
    Luxardo Original Maraschino Cherries (not those hot mess super red cherries you can buy anywhere)

    I usually start with the bitters because if you get too much it make the whole drink WAY too bitter. This way, If I get too much in, I start over. Add in the Whiskey and Vermouth. Add 2 cherries, plus just a little of the syrup they come in. Stir gently. (Sorry Bond, no shaking here.) Traditional is without ice (neat), but add a cube or 2 of ice if you prefer. When we have them, we use the large slow melting ice spheres.

    Episode 16: A BlerdMom Halloween

    It's our favorite month here at BlerdMom and probably not for the reason you think. It's not the costumes. It's the old, terrible Halloween movies we love to watch. Vincent Price, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are in constant rotation around here all October.

Excellent New Podcast Perspective

Great chemistry between the Blerdmom and her co-host/partner. They have honest discussions about their experiences at cons like BlerdCon, DragonCon, etc. Two of the coolest people I know. Looking forward to hearing more of their adventures and perspectives on popular culture. Five stars!
