Gin-Basil Smash

April 23, 2010 (Day 83) — Gin-Basil Smash I’m pretty sure around the time I originally started this little project, I made some sort of comment towards the effect of the resurgence in cocktailism — which I’m perfectly aware isn’t actually a word. Hendrick’s Gin — which, as I’ve mentioned before, is Jenn and I’s […]

Smashed Leprechaun/Irish Luck

March 17, 2010 (Day 46) — Smashed Leprechaun/Irish Luck This is actually the same drink, only one is with alcohol and one is with sparkling grape juice. Guess which one is which. But, as I mentioned in my post last night, Jenn and I really REALLY like St. Patrick’s Day. How much? We made an […]

Half and Half

March 16, 2010 (Day 45) — Half and Half Truth be told, neither Jenn or I are Irish. I’m German and she’s French/Scottish. Despite this, we have a certian proclivity for all things Irish. And considering tomorrow is officially St. Patrick’s Day, I figured I’d wet your appetite for the drunkfest tomorrow with a classic […]

Church Lady Martini

March 15, 2010 (Day 44) — Church Lady Martini The first cocktail guide I ever purchased was my junior year at the University of Kansas was a book called “Martinis” by Sally Ann Berk, which actually wasn’t so much a book as a series of cards with martini recipes on them and some killer photography Zeva Oelbaum. […]

Mojito (Fake)

March 14, 2010 (Day 43) — Mojito (Fake) Okay, I’m violating one my cardinal rules for the second night in a row. I’m using a pre-mixed cocktail. Just add booze! Why am I violating my code of “only fresh ingredients?” Well, my parents were nice enough to give Jenn and I some Stirring’s Mojito mix […]

Red Beer

March 13, 2010 (Day 42) — Red Beer Beer is delicious. Really. I’m not sure if you knew it, but beer is really really great. And while beer certainly is a fine enough beverage in and of itself, it’s a killer base for other drinks. Now… would red beer be considered a cocktail? Well, It’s […]

Milk Dud

March 12, 2010 (Day 41) — Milk Dud On the recommendation of the owner of my favorite liquor store in town (Comanche Beverage Outlet, by the way. If you’re ever out Dodge City way, this is THE place to pick up some lesser known liquors/micro brews, etc.) I picked up some Dutch Caramel Vodka from […]

French Martini

March 11, 2010 (Day 40) — French Martini Sometimes some of the best cocktails you ever make happen by accident. Jenn said this evening that she wanted something that had pineapple juice in it. We have some raspberry liqueur left over from Halloween two years ago (I made a truly horrific punch that called for […]

Pink Greyhound

March 10. 2010 (Day 39) — Pink Greyhound Take a nice loooong look at that photo. Study it. Soak it in. It’s a picture of a greyhound in a pink pantsuit. Thankfully, tonight’s drink simply bears the name Pink Greyhound. It isn’t actually one. Seriously… poor dog. But, per a request from my wife, Jenn, […]

Duck Fart

March 9, 2010 (Day 38) — Duck Fart So, one of  the cool things about my job is that I get to travel all around the Midwest. And while I can’t say I’m happy to leave my wife and stepson behind, it’s great meeting the people who work for my company. And, I get to […]
