The most common ingredients to make Vodka, grains and Potatoes. Each contributing its own unique taste to where it is distilled. Potato Vodka (specifically Chopin,) tend to have a “sweeter” taste and definitely has a good boldness to it. Grain Vodka is more neutral in its taste, in that you would use it for mix drinks in which you don’t want the vodka to overpower any other mixers.

WORK IN PROGRESS
Working on a new poster illustration of the common ingredients used when making Gin. Should have a finished poster ready soon, and will be making prints!
Waiting for Metro North up in the Hudson Valley. Saw this house hiding in the foliage.
Another quick ingredients used drawing. This was for a recipe i saw in Bon Appetit Magazine. (Hey maybe they’ll like my drawings and use me one day!)
Usually i draw in inks, and color them in the computer. I wanted to bust out the water colors to see what i remember. Turns out my water colors are only capable of putting out muddy colors. Time to upgrade the paints!
Touched up in photoshop a bit.
Quick drawings of the ingredients used, based off of a recipe i cooked last night. Chicken Marsala.

Hiking at Bash Bish
Ever heard of Bash Bish Falls? Its up on the border of NYS and Mass. The trail starts about 15 minutes away from the falls, But that’s the easy way. Right next to the trail is a stream that comes from the falls. It takes about an hour to hike via the stream. You’ll climb over mini water falls, climbing on boulders, jumping over pools of crystal clear water, and fight off the bugs crazy bugs that love to land right in your eye and ruin your afternoon. but its so much more rewarding when you reach the end.
Drew this while taking a break at about the halfway point of the hike up the stream. It was a hot day so we cheated and just walked through the stream all the way up.
my final drawing from my trip to Burlington Vermont. This is actually in a town about 45 minutes away called Stowe, Vermont. A bunch of people recommend that we go drive on a road called smugglers run which starts in the town of Stowe, RT 108 specifically, and ends in jeffersonville. . It is an amazing driving road which cuts through the mountains with switchbacks, tight turns, single lane blind corners, and amazing hiking trails all over the place. Highly recommend it.
Back to the drawing. Me and my girlfriend have started to get into a habit of finding any Mexican place when we are hungry and seeing how it compares to other Mexican food we have had. Across from the restaurant we stopped to eat that was this church. The Stowe Community Church.
Drew this in the actual town of Burlington. Happened to be there during the Burlington Marathon, which was a lot of fun to watch. Never seen an actual marathon in person. Spent a good amount of time wondering if i could ever do that. After the race finished we explored the pedestrian walkway called Church Street, where at the very end is a… church looking building. Google says the building is called the First Unitarian Universalist Society. Anyway, it had a fancy looking spire so i decided to capture it.
