what-to-drink-Cereal-Circle

The Cereal Circle is an interesting cocktail. It incorporates two brandies and is driven by the breakfast flavors of Cheerios. “I wanted to work a savory flip into our seasonal menu that had an unexpected addition of flavor,” says bartender Mike Joes of Sable Kitchen & Bar in Chicago. He’s combined two classic flips, a Sherry Flip and Brandy Flip, which balance the creaminess of the whole egg. “Cheerios remind me of the simple pleasures of my youth, and when infused overnight with the simple syrup, it gives a playful touch of ‘breakfast’ to this flip without overwhelming the palate.”

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
