56 Julep

July 31, 2010 (Day 182) — 56 Julep We’re (kind of ) keeping the western theme going on these next 10 days as we head into Kansas’ second largest festival — Dodge City Days. Sawyer Brown is playing the big country concert this evening,  and they’re from the south, so let’s get cracking on play […]

Whiskey Sour

July 30, 2010 (Day 181) — Whiskey Sour Today is the first day of Dodge City Days — Kansas second largest festival, and actually a pretty cool piece of Americana. Even cooler, we’re celebrating it’s 50th year, this year. Steeped in western mythos and blazing guns, Dodge City Days is a pretty interesting combination of old […]

Caribbean Breeze

July 29, 2010 (Day 180) — Caribbean Breeze I’m on a summer kick. Let’s keep it rolling! Happy Thursday, everyone. Here’s hoping your week isn’t too shabby. Just think! Tomorrow’s Friday! So, let’s pretend we’re on a tropical beach somewhere. Or, if you are on a tropical beach, this will just make you feel that […]

Kookamunga (plus bonus Enchanted Frost)

July 28, 2010 (Day 179) — Kookamunga (plus bonus Enchanted Frost) I’m on the road (again) for work. So that means we’ll be having a guest bartender tonight, since I don’t have access to my usual liquors! This week I’m in Grand Island, NE — a town of about 45,000 people in south central Nebraska. […]

Fancy Scotch

July 27, 2010 (Day 178) — Fancy Scotch Today is National Scotch Day! National here in US or in Scotland? Damned if I know really, I’m too damn lazy to Google it. (Okay, I went back and looked it up. According to this Website, it’s actually National Scotch Day in the US). I’m not exactly […]

Recovery Drink

July 26, 2010 (Day 177) — Recovery Drink So, Jenn and I have been kicking our asses lately on an exercise program that I can’t name here (it rhymes with Flea Blighty Pex). At the end of every exercise the well muscled and disturbingly upbeat exercise guru encourages you to take part in your “recovery […]

Cheshire Cat

July 25, 2010 (Day 176) — Cheshire Cat “Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin; but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever say in my life!” — Alice “We’re all mad here.” — The Cat The Cheshire Cat. Fading in and out. Dancing, laughing, rolling. Disturbed. Disturbing. […]

Chinese Firebolt

July 23, 2010 (Day 174) — Chinese Firebolt It’s been a long time since I’ve made a non-alcoholic drink. When I started this blog, I wanted to make sure I got my fair share of “mocktails” made up. After all, just because you’re underage, you’re the designated driver, or you’re a teetotaler doesn’t mean you […]

Grand Blue

July 22, 2010 (Day 173) — Grand Blue Okay, so my plans to make “healthy” drinks for the week headed south pretty damn fast. In other words, I made one. Then it was back to the not-so-good-for-you variety. Ah well. At least we’re still exercising! And, as usual, summer has settled its sweaty, hairy ass […]
