360 Lemon Cola

November 14, 2010 (Day 288) — 360 Lemon Cola Remember a couple weeks (months?) ago, Jenn and I sat down and reviewed the entire line of 360 Vodka flavored vodkas? Well, at the time I had said I was going to make drinks with each and every one of those. The problem is, a lot […]

Chinese Firebolt

July 23, 2010 (Day 174) — Chinese Firebolt It’s been a long time since I’ve made a non-alcoholic drink. When I started this blog, I wanted to make sure I got my fair share of “mocktails” made up. After all, just because you’re underage, you’re the designated driver, or you’re a teetotaler doesn’t mean you […]

Cuba Libre

Monday Chillin’

Writer’s Note: I’m sick today, so this is a drink I actually made earlier last week and added to my queue in case of events like these (i.e. sick, can’t make it to the computer, etc.) So, in interest of journalistic clarity, I did make this drink/write about it. Just not to today. All the […]

Beam Me Up

February 10, 2010 (Day 11) — Beam Me Up I’ve re-discovered the joys of bourbon after having taken a couple years hiatus from the drink. I’ve kind of stuck with scotch as of late, but with the start of my blog, it’s led me back to the drink that started my love affair for whiskey. […]
