Hi everyone. My name's Chris...

Seriously. In the last few weeks, I've made bacon-infused bourbon, Jamaican bitters (grapefruit, ginger, and several spices), two different tinctures (pumpkin and ginger), a juniper and sage simple syrup, and now I'm making Donn's Tinc, a tincture version of the famous Donn's Mix (ok, famous in some circles) which is a cinnamon and grapefruit compound used in tiki drinks.

In my defense, several of those ingredients are destined to be used at Thanksgiving dinner with renface's family, as I'm always responsible for the hooch at that gathering. But still...it's fun!
