Horse’s Neck- A Perfect Autumn Cocktail

My husband’s birthday was this past weekend.  For his birthday, my older son bought him as a gift the latest, greatest cocktail book – William Yeoward’s American Bar .  
The observation that I made about this gift is that my son has an appreciation for his parent’s passions. He has his own style, his likes are not necessarily what gets us excited but, he gets it and he too, has embarked with an open mind about the things that he wants to discover. 
Parents have moments in their lives when they realize that their children are adults. This was one of those moments.

You may know, but it is my husband who makes these fabulous cocktails that are shared on the blog.  He pays attention to detail, and uses the best and freshest ingredients.  He is known among our friends to shake or stir a good cocktail.

This cocktail has strong flavors, and it is important that there is a balance that is achieved.  If you strike the balance you will have a good autumn cocktail to enjoy.

  1. If your neighbors ever have to move, I'm sure they will list living near you all as one of the best features of their house. I'd certainly consider relocating, should one come on the market. 🙂


  2. As a former bartender I still appreciate a good drink. I forget which book I have but, it has a lot of 'dog ears' in it 🙂
