Whisper

January 30, 2011 (Day 365) — Whisper Wow… so this is it. Tonight marks exactly one year since I began this blog —  a lark to entertain family and friends. Since then, I’ve had tens of thousands of visits to the site, hundreds of visits a day, made new connections, learned more about liquor and […]

Scotch Drink


Let other poets raise a fracas ‘Bout vines, an’ wines, an’ dru’ken Bacchus, An’ crabbit names and stories wrack us, An’ grate our lug, I sing the juice Scotch bear can mak us, In glass or jug. O, thou, my Muse! guid auld Scotch drink; Whether thro’ wimplin’ worms thou jink, Or, richly brown, ream […]

January 29, 2011 (Day 364) — Jayhawker I love Lawrence, Kansas. That’s never been much of a secret. I lived there for several years while I went to school, then again for a while while I worked at the local newspaper. Aside from Dodge City, I truly think of Lawrence as my hometown. There doesn’t […]

Lynchburg Lemonade

Atchison is also home to one of the state's most well-known haunted houses.

January 28, 2011 (Day 363) — Lynchburg Lemonade If you swung by to jaw a bit earlier today, you would have seen my more in-depth review of the Most Wanted Pioneer Whiskey, an interesting little whiskey concoction from the other side of my fair state. For those who missed it, or won’t go back and take a […]

Most Wanted Pioneer Whiskey: REVIEW

Hmmmm

It’s the last couple of days before this project wraps up, and it’s been quite a while since I penned a review for you guys. In general I tend to stay away from reviews, because the chances are you guys will have already tried these thing by the times I got my glommy mitts on […]

Garbo Cocktail

January 27, 2011 (Day 362) — Garbo Cocktail Greta Garbo was a hottie. A classical hottie. She was originally a silent film star, but was one of the few who made the switch over to talkies. And the cocktail that’s named after her seems bizarre and I always enjoy challenges. Garbo Cocktail 1 oz brandy 1 […]

Moulin Rouge

Yeah, I know. Gross.

January 26, 2011 (Day 361) — Moulin Rouge Okay, I know I’m going to lose man points for this. But I really like the Baz Luhrman movie “Moulin Rouge.” I’m not too proud to admit it either. And I really do apologize. I just really dig the hyper-saturated videography, the style of Paris at that […]

Seattle Manhattan

Seattle's #1 export besides BO

January 24, 2011 (Day 359) — Seattle Manhattan What’s coffee known for besides trust-fund hippies who can afford to not have a job and complain about “those corporations, man?” Okay, besides that and hipsters and crusty facial hair? Coffee of course! This recipe from the master mixologists at Jim Beam created this sweet and powerful […]

January 23, 2011 (Day 358) — Winter Slumber Last night we were trying to stay awake to finish up a paint job. Tonight seems like the perfect time to warm up with a delicious cocktail and maybe do a little bit of relaxing around the house. This is a cocktail I’ve been sitting on for […]
