Cafe Royal


January 22, 2011 (Day 357) — Cafe Royal After a long week at work and another week of work and volunteering stretching out ahead of you, there are times you really need a pick-me-up on those long Saturday afternoons. For example, I’m getting ready to paint an entire room of our house and I’m going to […]

Nuvo Singapore Sling


January 21, 2011 (Day 356) —  Nuvo Singapore Sling Holy crap. Ten more days. Only 10 more days and I’ve achieved (one) of the goals I set forth to myself a year ago — to make and drink a unique cocktail each day, every day, for an entire year. That’s a crapload of cocktails, in […]

A challenge


My WordPress dashboard is asking me if I want to blog more often. Christ, I do it once (sometimes twice) a day. How much more do they want me to drink!?

The Fourth Estate


January 20, 2011 (Day 355) — The Fourth Estate Was on the road for a little bit today for work, meeting some great people. I really do love my job. But, you always have to pay credence to your past.

Ginger Cognac


January 19, 2011 (Day 354) — Ginger Cognac I’ve only got a little bit of my cognac left, so I figured this evening I’d finish off the bottle and make another cognac-based cocktail.

Across countless Twitter accounts and Websites that I tend to frequent, the genteel wine-based liquor seems to be making a surge back into the public consciousness. My good friend Josh Davis over at Drinks on Me has, for quite […]

Late Night Nip


January 17, 2011 (Day 352) — Late Night Nip It’s a late night. You’ve had long, hard day at work and then a hard night of play. You need to unwind. Get some good music on the record player (or queued up on the iPod). Let your mind settle a bit, stop racing from the […]

Kentucky Peach Tree


January 16, 2011 (Day 351) — Kentucky Peach Tree This Sunday evening I spent going over lines for the upcoming show I’m in, and plunking out some mediocre tunes on my bass. It was a good weekend. A relaxing weekend. I really couldn’t think of anything better than to wrap up the weekend in a […]

Sparkling Tropics


January 15, 2011 (Day 350) — Sparkling Tropics For those of you who have been too timid to dip your toes into the infused vodka game, I cannot encourage you enough to try your hand at it. You’ll really be surprised what you come up with. This drink is based off a bottle of Double-Citrus […]

Snowy New Orleans


January 14, 2011 (Day 349) — Snowy New Orleans This past week, 49 of 50 states had snow on the ground. The one that didn’t was Florida. Even Hawaii had some snowtipped mountains. Even Louisiana, home of NOLA, had some snow on the ground no matter how briefly. In honor of that, why don’t we […]
