The Cocky Carrot

19 May

Found this cool cocktail on line. It’s called the Cocky Carrot…

1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz orange Cointreau
2 oz carrot juice

Pour over ice into glass

Top off with a little sparkling water.

Very nice. Bugs Bunny gives two thumbs up!

Drink well,

Jefe

Donde Canta la Rana is Now Open…

10 May

My father only lived in Bogota, Colombia for 4 years, where he met and married my mother. But Dad had fond memories of the city and country. One of the stories he told was of a favorite watering hole called “Donde Canta la Rana.” This translates into “Where to Frog Sings.” Not only a unique name, but a great personal story.

Esposita and I decided to take the room next to the dining room that simply as not being utilized well, and turn it into a makeshift bar/sitting room. This would open up the dining room and make a nice place for us to relax and host guests. She was kind enough to allow me to turn it into a Colombian room and name it “Donde Canta la Rana” in memory of Dad’s favorite bar.

Here are the photos…
