ron_zapacta

We’ll sing any song about the sea, or about drinkin’ rum, or about being at sea when ye’d much rather be ashore drinkin’ rum with pretty lassies who’re also drinkin’ rum. After two bottles in a row knocking down vodka, we’re taking something a bit heavier and hitting a bottle that if you indulge too much could […]

Dirty Kermit

Tease.

October 28, 2011 (Day 213) — Dirty Kermit One of the greatest pastimes of the internet is destroying childhood memories. In many ways, actually. Usually, through something sexual. There’s even for a rule for it. Rule 34. Don’t Google it if you have any sort of self-respect or love of your childhood memories. However, that […]

Caramel Apple

October 27, 2011 (Dat 212) — Caramel Apple Okay, I’m actually excited to use the Hiram Walker Caramel Apple liqueur as part of a shot. It’s actually pretty damn versatile liqueur, so I would imagine it would be perfectly suited for complex flavors in a quick burst.

October 28, 2010 (BONUS) — Chicago Fire The awesome and ever-talented Josh Davis and Ramon Henderson recently brought what they called a “Luxuy Drop” to a competition in Chicago.
