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.

ORIGINAL — Fallen Leaves

November 16, 2011 (Day 232) — Fallen Leaves Testing out a new liqueur without a large base of fans.. or even much of an online presence… or even much of any presence… is a bit of a double-edge sword. There isn’t a lot of inspiration to draw from to replicate “official” cocktails. By the same […]

ORIGINAL — Fetus in a Glass

October 20, 2011 (Day 205) — Fetus in a Glass We’re starting to dip our toes into the Halloween cocktails this week, featuring a new original with an offensive name from our executive editor, Jenn!

Holy Hell

October 10, 2011 (Day 195) — Holy Hell Autumn has descended like a blanket over Kansas. After the driest summer on record and one of the worst heat waves in recent memory, we finally have some overcast clouds, some rain is falling, and it doesn’t feel like stepping into a convection oven when you go out the […]

Featured Best Buy Booze: Monarch Hazelnut Liqueur

October 10, 2011 — Monarch Hazelnut Liqueur The nut liqueurs are staples of European cuisine, as well as cocktail culture. This is especially true of Italian cocktails. However, the problem begins when you realize that these also tend to be some of the most expensive liqueurs on the market. That is, until you consider the Monarch line. Now, as we’ve […]

Bourbon Ball Manhattan

January 8, 2010 (Day 343) — Bourbon Ball Manhattan Take a look right above these words. Look at what day number it is. We really are winding down. What a long, strange trip it’s been.
