Zodiac Vodka Part Two (Cocktails): Naranja

While in high school I took two years of French. In college, I took three years of Spanish. And yet, as a twenty-something I speak jack shit aside from English. Maybe some Yiddish. And I’m really not even speaking English all that well to begin with. As such, when I should be able to wow bystanders with […]

Xante 365: Delice A L’orange

Good afternoon folks; glad to be back on the scene with Cocktails, 365. It’s been a long time since we’ve been on this site as a writer, but things have been busy in the DrinkxXx On Me world. Our newest endeavor is that we are working with a liqueur called Xanté. Xanté is a premium […]

Old Fashioned

November 28, 2010 (Day 302) — Old Fashioned “My love’s old fashioned/But it still works just the way it is.” — Cee-Lo Green The Old Fashioned is, well… Old Fashioned. It’s one of the oldest cocktails around and can be found in classy piano bars to skeevy dives the world over. It’s one of the […]

Northern Lights

February 05, 2010 (Day 6) — Northern Lights Schnapps has never really been something that’s shown up in my liquor cabinet. Ever, really.
