Fred Yarm, of Cocktail
Virgin Slut (@CocktailVirgin) is one of today’s hardest working cocktail bloggers. For more than two years now he has averaged much more than a post a day. (And his pace was no slouch before that.) Virtually all his posts are straight-forward documentations of a cocktail he has made or had made for him, with an always good, sometimes fantastic, photograph of same. The only gripe I have with his blog is that it is on Blogger so there is no good search engine on site. When he finally migrates all those posts to a more powerful blogging platform, Fred will have one of the more extensive and useful cocktail references anywhere on the web.
I’ll bet there’s an App developer somewhere in Boston, Fred, who could turn all this work into an app of some kind. I know it might be hard to find one, since there’s no high-tech there and all….
As Tiki Month kicked off, Fred offered up a Demerara-palooza of a Tiki drink, and a Beachbum Berry original, the Kon-Tini. He’s kinda cruel, in that the recipe calls for Lemon Hart 80, which you can’t buy in the US for now. But I know a guy who has some informed thoughts on how to fake it.
