Along his culinary journey he became intoxicated not only with sipping the amber liquid but with photographing it, too. His subject, however, was not a two-fingers’ pour but the dried drops left over in the bottom of the glass, which—as he discovered one morning while loading the dishwasher—leave intricate, lacelike designs in their evaporative wake. Photographic interest piqued, Button began experimenting with different Scotches, whiskeys and bourbons to see what kind of patterns he could coax out of those spirits’ departing drops.The rest of this interesting story of libational and photographic curiosity is here, at Scientific American.

Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale will highlight the indelible character of OLD BAY through bright and refreshing citrus hop character and a crisp, tart finish. OLD BAY is added to the whirlpool imparting a bold aroma followed by hints of flavor throughout the beer. The finish is dry, snappy, and perfect for our hot and humid summers.More on this possibly wonderful, possibly horrible brew at the link above. At the very least, it features a zombie crab on the label, which pleases me to no end.

Armed with recipes, good company, and very little in the way of instinctual self-preservation, I journeyed forth into the wilds of Glasgow to find a cocktail bar that would enable us to drink our way through eleven Doctors. Blue Dog and its excellent staff were game, and thus did our adventure begin.The recipes to these lovely libations are here, and subsequent tasting notes are here. I particularly look forward to attempting THE GREEN DEATH on behalf of Jon Pertwee's Doctor, for all the reasons.
