Le Mixeur Leftoveur will be held at the home of T.Mixeur, which lies somewhere among the peaceful residences of an area some would call Greenwood, and others North Ballard. For specific location, send electronic mail of inquiry to t.mixeur at gmail dot com.
Fitting might it be that the most impromptu, informal Mixeur yet should be held in the home of its creator. And full circle might have Le Mixeur come, seeing as this will be the first Mixeur to be served on home turf since the first one. Will this then be the last? One neveur knows.
Six drinks will be offeured, three in punch form and three cocktails. Four of these may look familiar to those of you who attended Le Mixeur Six. It is a Leftoveur, after all. Variety comes by way of serving Eric Alperin's "Kingsbury" punch style, and doing the same for Anu Apte's "Saffron Sour" by removing the egg white and instead pouring on some bubblies.
And if that weren't enough dalliances into the new and unexplored, we also provide you, the Mixer, with an additional Left Coast Libations concoction, David Nelson's "Kentucky Tuxedo." And just for good measure, we serve a semi-original creation of T.Mixeur's, the "William Holden." The William Holden uses a bastardized version of Jamie Boudreau's beer liqueur, and is included here because, well, I made some beer liqueur and what the hell else am I going to do with it?

We will be serving up drinks from a lovely bar I built on the back deck, made from half an old futon frame with some plywood laid over the slats, lying across two columns of milk crates and a card table. We'll ignite the world's most Wabi charcoal grill and get it greased up with some food, but also advise people to bring their own food to grill should they wish to be guaranteed food consumption. Also, in lieu of DJ or live band, we have lovingly crafted a play list of the finest Nu Yorican roots music, along with some Brazilian soul, and a little New Orleans funk as we look ahead to Tales.
So to recap: Le Mixeur Leftoveur, July 2, 6pm. À la maison de T.Mixeur. Email for directions.
Punch. Cocktails. BBQ. Music. Frivolity. Gaiety. Chicaneury. Etc.
