About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    I’ve been eating blueberries by the handful. I’ll take a spritzer. Oh, who am I kidding? I’d like each and every one of ’em.

  6. I’m on my way, get the shakers and mixers ready… I love all of your cocktails. After all water is not all it is cracked up to be. Do you know what fish do in water…?!? LOL Wishing you a super summer!
