That's what I want.

If you follow developments in the cocktail world, then you're aware of the explosion of bitters, the revival of defunct or obscure ingredients like Creme Yvette and genever, and at long last the availability of non-rotgut unaged whiskeys.  I strongly suspect in the next couple years you'll be hearing about the creation of "distinctly American" spirits.  Cocktails have always been a Tex-Mex/Japanese pizza sort of fusion of European spirits (gin, liqueurs, etc), medicinal products (tonic water, bitters), and citrus, in a uniquely American combination.  Some of those spirits have settled down and relocated on our soil -- bourbon and American rye are certainly much more common in cocktails than Scotch or Irish whiskey, there are distinctly American styles of gin, and distilleries like Prichard's and Tuthilltown Spirits have reclaimed rum distilling, once the most common distilled product in the US.

Appearance: ‘Gansett pours a pale gold with a slight orange hue and finishes to a light, sudsy head of fine bubbles.

Cheap weekend thrills: FREE BLUES

House of Blues free local show series launch with Bearstronaut, Earthquake Party and DJ Die Young

Starting Saturday and several nights a week at 9 p.m., 15 Lansdowne St. in the Fens; 21-plus, FREE

A night on the town along Lansdowne Street - whether it be a concert or a Red Sox [team stats] game - doesn’t come cheap these days. So props to the House of Blues for offering a free, local angle to its live music experience. Starting Saturday, the 150-capacity front room restaurant at the House of Blues will host free local music shows, open to both the public and ticket holders for concerts in the main hall. The dance-minded stylings of Bearstronaut, Earthquake Party and DJ Die Young help kick things off, and future gigs include Drug Rug (May 5 and 6), Doomstar (May 12) and the Hush Now (June 2). With free admission, $3 Narragansetts and a $5 food menu, it’s easy on the wallet.
