Variations on the Screwdriver

28 Dec 2022 1 minute read 1 comment Farfalle

The Screwdriver is a classic cocktail of orange juice and vodka. Typically 2 parts OJ, 1 part vodka, and some optional ice. It's not a very exciting drink, and usually abandoned after college when one gets a taste for other spirits. I've encountered...

7 Nov 2021 2 minute read 0 comments Farfalle

If the internet were to contain all the information in the world, could we reliably access it? The brief: I saw two - very different - music pieces use the same artwork. I tried to reverse image search and struggled to uncover the artist. The interne...
