It may be Saturday, but to us it’s Mixology Monday again!

This is the first “MxMo” of 2015, and I absolutely love Ginhound’s suggested topic – “Blue.”  As she puts it in her Announcement Post:

As she puts it in her Announcement Post:

January needs a bit of color – or perhaps the month after all the holiday mania makes you feel…..blue?

Either way this months Mixology Monday is a chance to live those emotions out.

You can dazzle us with a brilliant blue drink or you can share that blue feeling with a melancholic drink ?

Just when I was starting to convince Chris to stop at the store for some Hypnotiq or Blue Curacao, he remembered – it just so happens that we already happen to have a case of Oskar Blues Brewery’s beer.  Perfect. Chris gets out of putting Hypnotiq on the back-bar, and I get a drink made with pilsner.  Win-win!

Oskar’s Bees

A bit of a Cheater…

So while this isn’t a cocktail that looks “Blue”, it is a delicious and bright take on the traditional “Bees Knees” cocktail.  So if you’re slogging through those winter “Blues”, this might just be a good option!

Thanks again to Andrea from Ginhound for the great topic!
