On the Shelves/ In the Garden

on-the-shelvesWhen I first became interested in cocktail and mixology blogs, one thing I noticed was that people would post what they currently had for liquor/etc… in their house. Much like how one peruses the book shelves when visiting someone’s house, or record collection, here you could see what people that you were looking for recipes and general mixology advice from really kept around. It made for a great starting point, and now I can contribute what I have taking up a chunk of space in the kitchen on my sideboard.
