I have always been on a quest, if you will, to create new drinks to make at home and share with my family and friends, who fondly gave me the nickname, “Cristie Cocktail”…years ago. Kind of fitting now!! This is not just another…cocktail blog…Oh know, my friends…it is ALL about libations!! Cool ones, classic ones, hot ones, seasonal ones, the frozen ones (that I refer to lovingly as “Fruzhenglahzen”) with or without the alcohol…the varieties I will cover are endless!! I could spend all day, everyday playing mixologist…so it came to me…WHY NOT? Thus, the birth of ThirstQuest. (say that 3 times fast!)
My Quest, is to share with all of you the joy and wonder that is liquid refreshment!!
My journey starts at home, but will take me to Seattle and all around the NW, and beyond, to find those special drinks served up in establishments that may not yet be discovered. Those little gems that you find at the end of a road trip when you’re really thirsty…and stop at a place you happen upon, and have the BEST drink that could ever quench your thirst. That kind of place you experience and will never forget. But I won’t stop there..I’ll forever be in search of the freshest juices and interesting mixers to jazz up any drink at home. My kitchen is my lab, my friends and family get to test and rate all of the concoctions I create…so sad for them…it’s a tough job!!! You will be able to re-create these drinks at home with your special peeps and take all the credit!
I hope to inspire you all to get out your blenders, your shakers, your muddlers, your ice buckets and mix on!!! I will share tips with you on where to find ingredients, how to make that perfect drink to fit any occasion..and to be your own ROCKSTAR Mixologist!!
Let’s face it…the hit of any party or special occasion…is the cocktail, special drink, punch, special coffee…it “makes’ the party.
So let’s get rollin’ on our Quest….for the best thirst quenching drinks around.
