ORIGINAL — Black Saturday

December 10, 2011 (Day 256) — Black Saturday So we had always have Black Friday — that lovely time of the year where people behave like goddamned animals. We’re honoring you this Saturday, however. That’s right, we’re honoring you, Mister Sitting On His Ass On a Saturday. You have nowhere to be, and you have […]

ORIGINAL — Last Centurion

December 7, 2011 (Day 253) — Last Centurion Similar to what we made last night, the Last Roman is a bit heavier and headier as it were. It’s also named after Rory Williams from Doctor Who. Because we here at Cocktails, 365 are goddamned nerds. Last Centurion 3 oz Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon 1.5 […]

ORIGINAL — Pumpkin Americano

November 18, 2011 (Day 234) — Pumpkin Americano Okay, so this is a bit of a misnomer, since an Americano is really nothing but espresso with some water to help temper the bitterness of the Italian coffee.

ORIGINAL — Fairy Godfather

October 14, 2011 (Day 199) — Fairy Godfather This is the first image that pops up when you do a Google image search for “Fairy Godfather.” For the love of God, just don’t take SafeSearch off. Trust us on this. There’s a whole other level of depravity on the interwebs. Although, that really shouldn’t surprise […]

ORIGINAL — Dust Storm Waltz

October 13, 2011 (Day 198) — Dust Storm Waltz There was finally just a little bit of rain to settle the dust across the plains. However, for several days after a summer of unbearable heat, you could get brief glances of blinding dust storms. Whipping winds, loose soil do not for a pretty landscape make. […]
