I wanted to dedicate it to these two Vinglers because they have been especially delightful, encouraging, inquisitive, and all that regarding the cards that I have shared in the past. I have LEARNED A TON about mixology from @Rodiziketan, but the most important thing of all is to use FRESH INGREDIENTS! It actually makes a big difference in just how fabulous your drink can and will be.
And then there's @Allobaber, who is ALWAYS a ray of sunshine and positivity. Like, does anything get this girl down?! I admire her ability to make things bright and sunny. And I would be lying if I said that I didn't LOVE the LoveBugs in the Love and Relationship Community. If you've never checked it out, then it's time you did!
Jagermeister--what was once the shot glass-only liquor--has shimmied its way into all manner of cocktail glasses. Don't ask any questions or say it out loud, but its masculinity appears to be a bit more relaxed than it has ever been.
Mixologists all over are taking the cardboard cutout, that is Jager, and turning it into some curious-looking refreshments.
Blank Slate was created by Sean Hoard of Portland Oregan's, The Commissary:

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice, strain over ice into a rocks glass, and top with approximately 1 oz. of soda water.
