'Drink of the week' Life on Mars

ABOUT THE LIFE ON MARS COCKTAIL
Ponyboy bar manager Ryan Goodman and his team’s easy-drinking cocktails keep it fun in Oklahoma City, like with this drink by bartender Erin Heatly, named after David Bowie’s song. Light and refreshing, it sips like spring with acid (citric, lactic and malic) and a sweet-and-sour profile from Grey Goose La Poire vodka, Pomp & Whimsy gin liqueur and a house lavender lychee syrup.

'Drink of the Week' Jeez Louise

ABOUT THE JEEZ LOUISE COCKTAIL


This modern take on a Sour at Revel Cafe & Bar in New Orleans uses amaro for the base spirit. Feel free to substitute other brands, but bartender and drink creator Chris McMillian has found the best ratio to get just the right amount of bitterness to be a three-to-one ratio of Averna to Cynar.

'Drink of the Week' The Brother Hal

ABOUT THE BROTHER HAL COCKTAIL
“Chartreuse is not classically used in rum cocktails; however, the herbaceous character can play well with sugar-cane-based distillates,” says Scott Woodworth, the lead bartender at 12@Madisonin Denver. His drink with white rum, mezcal, falernum and fresh citrus “provides the perfect balance of sweet, savory and citrus,” he says. It can also show that Green Chartreuse is not a one-trick pony of medicinal licorice flavors.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “What the #$@! Do I Do with This? Green Chartreuse: What It Is and How to Use It.”

New Jumbo Loans

Mortgage lending standards are loosening and it's being led by a recent expansion in the availability of jumbo credit.  

Customers can now get jumbo loans with as little as 5% down payment.  They can also get jumbo loans with credit scores as low as 610 and jumbo loans using bank statements, or assets, instead of tax returns to prove income to qualify.  They can now even get jumbo loans one day after foreclosure, BK or short sale.  

Loan guidelines are certainly not back to the ease of 2007 levels but getting much easier than the recent past...especially in jumbo.

Whether you are working or resting, have a great week!

'Drink of the Week' Apple Chai G&T Cocktail

ABOUT THE APPLE CHAI G&T COCKTAIL
Using a smooth American dry gin such as Bluecoat works well with this delicate Gin & Tonic by Canyon Shayer of Philadelphia Distilling. The apple chai syrup proves not too sweet, with nuances light enough that you don’t want a strong spirit to overpower them. It’s warm, refreshing and boozy all at once and almost too easy to drink. If you want more of a chai punch, try steeping the tea in the cider overnight or doubling up on the amount. Serve at happy hour or as a fun brunch cocktail.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “6 Gin Drinks Perfect for Sipping by the Fireplace.”
