  3. Blair! How are you?

    You left a comment answering my question about making my own liqueurs, but I went back to check it and now I can’t remember where I posted! Haha! Care to enlighten me again?

    Thanks in advance!

  4. Hello Blair! I’ve encountered your comments on many a cocktail blog and figured I should say hello. That glass in your photo is quite nice; looks like an Aviation to me, but I suppose it could be any drink of a light bluish hue. I have a glass quite like that one, as in this photo of the Chrysanthemum Cocktail, which I highly recommend: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aphonik/7154991402/in/photostream. It’s amazing what kinds of glassware you can find at Goodwill stores for 50 cents. Cheers! –Eric
