MxMo: Resin

Time for November’s Mixology Monday! We’re excited to be doing our Nerd spin on it ๐Ÿ™‚ We thought hard about a theme that would work well for this time of year, and after contemplating the food, booze, and decor we like for the holidays, we settled on “Resin”. From savory rosemary in a stuffing, to a delicious juniper-y gin in a martini, to a fragrant fir ornament or garnish, our friends the evergreens have a lot to offer.

resin-announce-finalThe challenge: come up with an ingenious creationย using the resin-y ingredient of your choice. Zirbenz, retsina, hoppy IPA, pine-nut puree, even? Sure! Spirit, garnish, aroma, all are fair game. ย Whatever resin means to you, we want to hear it.

Here’s what you need to do to participate:

  1. Create a delicious cocktail using one or more resin-y ingredients, and post the recipe on your blog along with a photo and whatever additional notes you’d like to include about it.
  2. Add the MxMo logo to your post, and link back to both the Mixology Monday site and the Booze Nerds site.
  3. Submit a comment to this post with a link back to your resin cocktail post, or send an email to boozenerds (at) boozenerds (dot) com.
  4. Get your submissions in by midnight on Monday, November 18th.

Looking forward to lots delicious and aromatic iterations on the theme!

Thanks again to Fred Yarm atย Cocktailย Virginย Slutย for keeping the MxMo party going.

    Reminds me of all the Slovenian oaked wine I had to taste during sommelier training. A good challenge! Looking forward to it.

  3. What a great angle! Very keen to see what everyone comes up with. I was just about to put away for next year a Halloween-feeling recipe idea with something resin-y, but this is the perfect chance to finish it too. *gets to work*

  4. This is a tough one: one month before I’ll have a pine tree complete with needles and wood in my living room, and the opposite time of year from where you’d harvest fresh pine buds.

    Alright, challenge accepted.
