I remember being very confused as a child when , while we were all at some wedding, a relative mentioned they were going to the bar to get a cocktail.

It’s time for pie!! And not just any pie. This is a no-bake peanut...

Who’s ready for a drink? This week we have Curacao Cocktail from John de Kuyper’s Complete Guide to Cocktails from 1965. I seriously love this book. It has a whole section of “dessert recipes” which mostly consist of alcohol poured over ice cream, desserts you can set on fire AND alcohol poured over ice cream that you can set on fire. So it’s pretty much got the whole package. Print Curacao Cocktail Author: John de Kuyper, 1965   Ingredients Orange Bitters 2½ ounces De Kuyper Orange Curacao 2½...
