Grapefruit Martini


July 20, 2010 (Day 171) — Grapefruit Martini We’re definitely feeling the burn from all the exercise we’ve been doing lately, so we decided to take a look at the healthier side of cocktails.

METAPOST — Amazing Web source, delay in posts


Hope everyone’s having one killer afternoon! Just a quick heads up to my readers — my daily posts may be a day late for a little while. We don’t have Internet at the house, which is where usually post my articles from. So, expect those to be a day late for a bit as I […]

Cosmopolitan


July 19, 2010 (Day 170) — Cosmopolitan Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. It’s a Cosmo. It’s a bullshit cocktail, drank in a dingy Houlihan’s at Penn Station while comparing you and your uninteresting friends to the blank slate characters that are the Sex and the City ladies.

BONUS POST: House of Stuart Blended Scotch Review


July 16, 2010 (BONUS REVIEW) — House of Stuart Blended Scotch Okay campers, this one doesn’t count for my daily update, but I really had to let people know about it. Like, really really.

French Riviera


July 16, 2010 (Day 167) — French Riviera Word to those in the know: When it tops 100-degree weather, asphalt parking lots get soft. Heavy motorcycles don’t stand up too well. They can — and will — fall over. And while the bike may start up just fine, it’s entirely possible that the battery can […]

James Bond Martini


July 15, 2010 (Day 166) — James Bond Martini Since writing my ramblings on the classic Martini for Savvy Host, I’ve spent the past couple days thinking about those classic cocktails of yore.
