Chocolate Vanilla Cream Dr. Pepper

February 28, 2010 (Day 29) — Chocolate Vanilla Cream Dr. Pepper As I mentioned in my post a couple weeks ago, I’m going to take a time out from alcohol-based cocktails every once in a while to feature a drink that is special, and dedicated specifically to those among you who either don’t drink, or […]

Almond Mimosa

February 27, 2010 (Day 28, 2010) — Almond Mimosa It’s Saturday night! That means it’s on to something fun! And while I’ve been sticking with shots as of late, I figured it might be time to go ahead and try something a little more… bubbly. Get your mind out of the gutter! I’m talking, of […]


February 26, 2010 (Day 27) — Venetian So, I’ve kind of been sticking with the simple cocktail recipes as of late, so why not mix it up with something a little bit complicated on a chilled Friday night? This martini has several different ingredients that all work together well to create something that’s better than […]

Irish Winter

February 25, 2010 (Day 26) — Irish Winter Dodge is under another winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service. This is getting insane. While I realize we don’t have near the problems most of the northern states have been facing, for Dodge City, it’s been ridiculous. It’s cold and dreary out this evening. But, […]

Gin and Sin

February 24, 2010 (Day 25) — Gin and Sin So, despite all odds, I actually managed to get a full hours worth of exercise in tonight. Was it effective? Lord only knows. But, at least I made the effort, right? I followed up my weight training with a smoothie packed full of fresh fruit, juice […]

Dapper Apple

February 23, 2010 (Day 24) — Dapper Apple Dapper is a great — and much, much too underused — word in the English lexicon. It conjures images of men in coat and tails, resplendent with top hats and monocles. A sweet dame on their arms, they head out to a night at the theater, or […]

Irish Coffee

February 22, 2010 (Day 23) — Irish Coffee First, let me apologize for no updates over the weekend. I think I’ve figured out that WordPress just really doesn’t like Chrome for Mac, that’s why I kept crashing. I’m now writing in Firefox, so hopefully I can get my weekend posts up in short order to […]

The Classic Martini

February 21, 2010 (Day 22) — The Classic Martini Before I get too far into this year-long project, it only makes sense in my mind to touch upon one of the most basic of all cocktails, the famous Martini. So, of course, this means we’re all in store for another history lesson. From the excellent […]

Beam Scream

February 20, 2010 (Day 21) — Beam Scream So, I’m gunning for “party” drinks on Saturdays. Why not? It’s Saturday! But since tonight I’m going to the local chamber of commerce banquet, I’ll make it short.  Both the drink, and the post. Now that I’ve got my hands on some Hot Damn! let’s try our […]

Scotch and Water

February 20, 2010 (Day 20) — Scotch on the Rocks Ahhh, simplicity. And you can’t get much more simple than a single malt scotch, a drop of water, on the rocks. A good, greasy meal out with family. A nice relaxing night. What better way than to relax with a classic? 2 oz single malt […]
