ORIGINAL — Antioxidant


December 27, 2011 (Day 273) — Antioxidant When you hear about food these days, it seems like it’s all free-radicals-this and antioxidants-that. It’s enough to make you want to go ahead and just take up a pack-a-day habit and start hammering down cheap beer until cirrhosis and cancer decides to just go ahead and take […]

Drunken Bee


November 11, 2011 (Day 227) — Drunken Bee Writer’s block continues. Booze keeps flowing. Thank you to everyone who has ever served (and continues to serve) in the military. You’re much braver than I. And this is all I can think of when I hear “Drunken Bee” Drunken Bee 2 oz Evan Williams Honey Reserve […]

Honeysuckle


November 10, 2011 (Day 226) — Honeysuckle The honeysuckle is a derp a herp a derp. Burdle durdle durp. That’s the short way to say that I’m suffering from severe writers block. The good news is that I’m not really suffering from mixologist’s block, so we can still create some delicious cocktails. Honeysuckle 2 oz […]

Neo Fashioned


October 22, 2011 (Day 207) — Neo Fashioned The Old Fashioned embodies how simple mixology can be some of the most complex and yield some of the best tasting cocktails out there.

ORIGINAL — Macaroon


August 9, 2011 (Day 134) — Macaroon We’re getting a bit more complicated tonight. Still playing it safe with the flavors, but throwing a curve ball on the preparation.

Featured Best Buy Booze: E&J Brandy VSOP


June 20, 2011 — E&J Brandy I’m going to offend some people with this week’s featured Best Buy Booze. Brandy is much like scotch in the sense that people tend to be pretty obsessive over their specific brands. There also tends to be a pretty major jumpstep from certain brands to others. If you get […]

Chantels


June 18, 2011 (Day 82) — Chantels For those unfortunate enough to not know about the Chantels, they were a Motown group from the 1950s who produced some great hits and still manage to make me wistful. Tonight’s drink is called Chantels because it’s a take off of the classic Shandy, which is beer and […]

ORIGINAL — Toffee Nation


June 11, 2011 (Day 75) — Toffee Nation This week could truthfully just be called a jaunt to the candy shop with all of the various candy-based cocktails we’ve been mixing up. Today’s is no different. This one is going to be a bit lighter in texture, but not so much with the flavor (a […]
