I’m excited to be bringing you my 20th Friday Finds! Sorry that I’ve had to resort to skipping a few weeks
here and there. And most recently with the holidays it has not always been business as usual around here.
But I think we’re getting back on track. So sit back and let’s see what I’ve scored as my latest vintage goodies.
First off there’s this awesome retro midcentury modern cocktail shaker I picked up at Goodwill for $1.99.
You’d think I was a Mad Men fan if you saw the collection of cocktail shakers I’ve got going. You might
recall this cocktail shaker that started off the whole collection thing.
but I love the 12 drink recipes printed on it just the same.
Whiskey Sour, Martini, Gin & Tonic,
Vodka Collins, Bloody Mary, Hiball,
Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Daiquiri,
On the Rocks, Tom Collins, Bacardi
I thought it made a nice display with the new highball glass/tumbler I stumbled upon
last week at Salvation Army for 52 cents.
Here's a Whiskey Sour recipe. I remember my parents drinking these.
And here's an Old Fashioned recipe. What are bitters, anyway?
You can see my cool vintage cocktail spoons/stirrers in the glass. I picked them up at the Randolph Street
Market in Chicago a few months ago.
And here's a close-up of the funky artwork on the top of the shaker as well as the lid.
Last but not least here's the double-sided stainless steel jigger I picked up at
Goodwill for $1.99. I thought it rounded out the retro set nicely.Do you have any weekend plans? We'll be hanging out at the old homestead, awaiting a snow storm that's predicted to blow through here Saturday night. Hope your weekend is safe and warm.
