X-Rated Flirtini

Ahhh... to relive those heady days listening to shitty pop music.

April 30, 2010 (Day 90) — X-Rated Flirtini It’s Friday! The end of the week. A day to relax with friends and/or family. Enjoy a nice, cool, finely crafted drink. Maybe go out. Maybe stay in and make a delicious home-cooked meal. We tend to look forward to Friday’s in our house, mainly because it’s […]

Blackberry Mud

April 29, 2010 (Day 89) — Blackberry Mud It’s Thirsty Thursday! But, it’s been more than a while since I’ve had a non-alcoholic drink featured on Cocktails, 365, so I figured it was high time I fixed that. Tonight’s drink is something I came up with on the spur of the moment. I had some […]

Moscow Mule — Revamped


April 28, 2010 (Day 88) — Bloody Mule Some of the greatest new cocktails are plays off the classics. And it seems like when I actually take the time to sit down and try to think up a new drink, I’m never able to really pull it off very well. However, it’s when making other […]

Vodka? Da!

April 27, 2010 (Day 87) — Moscow Mule Man, I’m tired. I spent all of my day out in the sun helping one of our agronomists check fields. And by help, I mean I got in his way for the entire day and shot a lot of cool photos. Thanks again Bryan! So, as I’m […]

Gimlet

Comedian W.C. Fields

April 26, 2010 (Day 86) — Gimlet A close friend of mine — and kind of an idol when it comes to mixology, truth be told — never used to drink water. He would drink pop. He would drink booze. But never water. When asked why, his answer was simple. He would quote W.C. Fields. […]

Special Guest Science Post!

Awwwww

My brother’s girlfriend and fellow booze hound, Shannon — who sent me the link that inspired my Ramos Gin Fizz — sent me a message this morning. She and some of her friends recently had a tasting, to talk a little bit about “breathing” and “bruising.” Here’s the thing. She goes to Yale. And she’s […]

The Spirit of the Monroe

April 25, 2010 (Day 85) — Depot Drinks One wouldn’t think, than in a town the size of Dodge City, Kansas — a whopping +30,000 people — that there would be much of an arts culture. Mention fine arts, and a town which has come to define Western heritage and mystique probably doesn’t jump straight […]

T’was a Dark and Stormy Night…

April 24, 2010 (Day 84) — Dark and Stormy T’was a Dark and Storm night, and all through the house Gosling’s Black Seal Rum let lose it’s haunting call, echoing through the hallways and down the stairs. “Drink meeeeeee,” it moaned — if it could moan, since it’s an inanimate bottle and contains no vocal chords. “Drink […]

Gin-Basil Smash

Getting the refresher ready

April 23, 2010 (Day 83) — Gin-Basil Smash I’m pretty sure around the time I originally started this little project, I made some sort of comment towards the effect of the resurgence in cocktailism — which I’m perfectly aware isn’t actually a word. Hendrick’s Gin — which, as I’ve mentioned before, is Jenn and I’s […]

Angel’s Delight

April 22, 2010 (Day 82) — Angel’s Delight It’s been a while since I’ve made a drink that’s blatantly foofy, so I figured it was about time I appeased those readers — such as my wife and my friend Brenna — who go nuts for fancypants drinks. And man, considering this thing’s name and it’s […]
