Summer Bourbon Cocktail

Every summer about this time I start to feel just a little bit of melancholy. A little bit of the summertime blues. Don't get me wrong. I love summer, but as I lounge by the pool sipping something light and fruity I can’t help but feel like I’m missing something. Some important part of my life that’s either been misplaced or somehow forgotten. But what could that something be I wonder as I lazily swirl the pisco in my punch or rumble the rocks in my rum-filled tumbler. That's when it finally hits me. I miss bourbon!

About Greg

I started my blog on a whim. I was looking for a creative challenge, which may sound odd because I spent 20 years as an entertainment industry photographer. I’m not talking paparazzi, I don’t have the personality to hide in the bushes! I like fresh takes on the familiar. My recipes are often simple, modern and colorful, with roots in traditional styles. I'm the author of two cookbooks. I’ve been a speaker at IFBC, Food Buzz and Camp Blogaway. I’ve led cooking demonstrations in Panama and Costa Rica and developed recipes for major brands. I’ve traveled to Peru, Mexico, Norway and Alaska to promote culinary and/or vineyard travel tours. I was even featured in Food & Wine Magazine. I also co-host The Table Set on Home Fries podcast network.
