Three Cocktails for World Gin Day

The phrase “better letter than never” seems to truly define the Cocktails, 365 experience. We have these grand plans of involvement in major events in the cocktail movements of the day and then we promptly get involved with enjoying the event and not writing about it. Specifically, today, we’re talking about World Gin Day.

The Dichotomy of Kansas Springs

Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Zephyr. It has been brutally windy the past four days here at Cocktails, 365 headquarters. So windy, in fact, that we’ve been making the news. I spoke with a colleague in California this afternoon who said the name Dodge City actually sauntered across their consciousness […]

A Tonic Apart – Jack Rudy Cocktail Co’s Small Batch Tonic

Words such as “handcrafted” and “artesian” and “small batch” can often be chalked up to clever marketing tactics.

Frostbit Kentuckian

September 11, 2010 (Day 224) — Frostbit Kentuckian I struggled to find some way to create an effective and meaningful way to talk about the nine years since September 11… But I can’t. I’m a purveyor of dick and fart jokes. My thoughts and prayers with all those who have known a loss that I […]

The Green Giant

August 12, 2010 (Day 195) — Green Giant My man Josh Davis created this little summer refresher during a Tanqueray gin cocktail contest late last month in Chicago.
