For the girl who has everything, and a mother and aunt who invent and blog about drink recipes, Acacia, in celebration of her birthday, asked us to create a birthday cocktail for her. Her only criteria was that it be exotic.
Named for the acacia tree commonly seen in silhouette on the Serengeti, something African was in order. Most pictures from Africa feature the African sunset, so we found this version both exotic and colorful. Happy Birthday, Acacia, and Cheers!

OUR MISSION - GETTING PUBLISHED! We know what we're up to, but do you? Our goal is to write a book containing general reviews and information about a variety of drinking establishments in the Adirondack Park. We intend to narrow our list to 46 of our favorites, which we will call our "high peaks". In addition, the book will include our favorite drink recipes with an Adirondack flavor. We will visit as many drinking establishments as possible in the Adirondack Park in 2011. As we do this, we will write some of our thoughts and reviews in this blog, and compose facts, photos, recipes and details for the book. We look forward to reader input on our blog, whether it be in checking on of the "reactions" at the bottom of each posting, or sending comments to let us know what you like or don't like or suggestions for future places to review. And, of course, we want you to tell your friends about us too (see main objective above)!
