Ultimate Recovery Smoothie


January 7, 2010 (Day 342) — Ultimate Recovery Smoothie Some very unwelcome stomach bug decided to settle atop of me whilst I was up in Nebraska this week. I spent most of the 4 1/2 hour drive back home sleeping, thanks to an excellent coworker who was willing to shuffle by sick ass back to […]

It Gets Better: A Strange, Mysterious Serious Departure for Cocktails, 365


This post is dedicated to my amazing parents, brothers, wife, and stepson. Without you guys I wouldn’t be half the person I am today. I’d probably be dirty, homeless and shuffling around some random street somewhere. I’m not very good at the serious kinds of things in life. I tend to deflect what I see […]

Pac Man


November 12, 2010 (Day 286) — Pac Man Oookay, I just rounded out my nice long trip with a 10.5 hour drive back home.

Spice Tea


October 4, 2010 (Day 247) — Spice Tea Curse you fall!

Another Kolin Drink. Another long name.


March 28, 2010 (Day 57) — Angel That Died in My Mouth and Tastes Delicious Last night I made an interesting martini called the White Cargo, which was simply a mix of gin and vanilla ice cream. Tonight, seeing as it’s Sunday, we’ll make the virgin version, which my stepson Kolin helped create. Replace the […]

Smashed Leprechaun/Irish Luck


March 17, 2010 (Day 46) — Smashed Leprechaun/Irish Luck This is actually the same drink, only one is with alcohol and one is with sparkling grape juice. Guess which one is which. But, as I mentioned in my post last night, Jenn and I really REALLY like St. Patrick’s Day. How much? We made an […]

Chocolate Vanilla Cream Dr. Pepper


February 28, 2010 (Day 29) — Chocolate Vanilla Cream Dr. Pepper As I mentioned in my post a couple weeks ago, I’m going to take a time out from alcohol-based cocktails every once in a while to feature a drink that is special, and dedicated specifically to those among you who either don’t drink, or […]

Kolin’s Super Amazing Wonderful Califragalistic Drink of Wonderment


February 17, 2010 (Day 18) — Kolin’s Super Amazing Wonderful Califragalistic Drink of Wonderment When I first started this blog, I mentioned that one of the great things about a cocktail was its ability to bring people together over something unique, something flavorful and sometimes even something a little bit fun.
