Coming Soon - Mixology Monday!

I remember my delight and awe when I first discovered there was such a thing as Mixology Monday. Browsing through the archives was as intimidating and exhilarating as standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon. So many drinks. So little time.

This month, Mixology Monday is coming to the Backyard Bartender. That's right - a week from now, on February 28th, my humble little blog will be graced by the creations of elite mixologists the world over. The theme for MxMo LV will be "Some Like it Hot" - make anything you want to, as long as it's served hot. I'm sure this is tremendously seasonally appropriate in parts of the country that are not Houston, where it is currently 79 degrees. Don't pretend you're not jealous.

Here's how this thing works - if you'd like to participate, send me an email with a link to your post, or just post your link in the comments by midnight on February 28th. (Whose midnight, I always wonder? I will be generous. If you live in Hawaii - Hawaiian midnight.) Don't forget to include in your post a link to this blog, and a link to the Mixology Monday site. Don't have a booze blog? You can just email me a recipe (preferably with photos - photos are good) and I will happily guest-post it here.

Happy mixing! Can't wait to see your creations.


  1. Can we request future themes/cocktails for you to work on?

    1) Grape jelly in a cocktail
    2) Spicy cocktails

    We'll keep you posted if we think of anymore

  2. Mmm, grape jelly. Sounds delicious. And kinda chunky. Maybe one of the mxmo folks will have some ideas about getting jelly into a cocktail.

  3. Nancy - thanks for hosting this month.

  4. Its time for Glogg!:
