About

Walked to the lake this afternoon. Frigid. This photo is from our first big snowfall but, since it never even got to freezing today, it felt about as cold as it was when I took this picture.

We’re only slowly emerging from the deep Robert Frost-time of winter.

“Between the woods and frozen lake, the darkest evening of the year.”

These cocktails are inspired by the classic cocktail pair named after the frozen north: the Black and White Russian. The twist is that they utilize beer. Fortunately, it’s stout–a beer that is a welcome warm-up this time of year. The prickly carbonation and the oatmeal and coffee undertones help take the sting off that winter walk.

Cheers.
