ORIGINAL — Fog Punch

November 26, 2011 (Day 242) — Fog Punch Oh God. You were able to keep everything at bay. The Holiday jingles. The guy dressed like Santa who smells suspiciously like urine and chicken bouillon.

Islay Ruby

November 25, 2011 (Day 241) — Islay Ruby You’re snowed under with leftovers. You’re trying your hardest to work through a turkey fog.

Cranberry Salad

November 24, 2011 (Day 240) — Cranberry Salad Okay, so Thanksgiving posts are usually taken to talk about the things I’m thankful for and truthfully have no right to have.

ORIGINAL — Tropical Scotsman

November 21, 2011 (Day 237) — Tropical Scotsman What happens when you do a Google image search for “Tropical Scotsman”? Total goddamned insanity, that’s what.

Mind Eraser

November 5, 2011 (Day 221) — Mind Eraser There’s an excellent rock song by Them Crooked Vultures called “Mind Eraser, No Chaser.” And truthfully, that’s all I had going through my mind while mixing this little bastard. Because truthfully, there’s not many other things you can do to create this kind of drink that will […]

November 4, 2011 (Day 220) — E’Sprit de Novembre We bid a fond adieu to  summer last night. Well, perhaps not for good. But it’s most definitely fall now.
