Florida Special


April 26, 2011 (Day 29) — Florida Special Another summery drink, quite a bit heavier than last nights. We’ve had a bit of a strange day with foggy morning, a bright sunshiny afternoon, and then a rainy evening.  It seems like a good time to pretend that I’m on a tropical beach somewhere. 1.5 oz […]

Bloody Harpoon


April 24, 2011 (Day 27) — Bloody Harpoon Happy Easter, everyone! It’s a family tradition that Easter means new books for everyone.

Lynchburg Lemonade


January 28, 2011 (Day 363) — Lynchburg Lemonade If you swung by to jaw a bit earlier today, you would have seen my more in-depth review of the Most Wanted Pioneer Whiskey, an interesting little whiskey concoction from the other side of my fair state. For those who missed it, or won’t go back and take a […]

Nuvo Singapore Sling


January 21, 2011 (Day 356) —  Nuvo Singapore Sling Holy crap. Ten more days. Only 10 more days and I’ve achieved (one) of the goals I set forth to myself a year ago — to make and drink a unique cocktail each day, every day, for an entire year. That’s a crapload of cocktails, in […]

Winter Cosmo


January 18, 2011 (Day 353) — Winter Cosmo The liquor of the week seems to be cognac. Across countless Twitter accounts and Websites that I tend to frequent, the genteel wine-based liquor seems to be making a surge back into the public consciousness. My good friend Josh Davis over at Drinks on Me has, for quite […]

London Lampoon


January 5, 2010 (Day 340) — London Lampoon So, I’m back up in Kearney, Neb. this week for a full-staff meeting for work. This is good news for me, because I’m nearby Venue, which I reviewed in an earlier post. Their food is excellent, and their bartender is willing to stretch herself and create tasty […]

Red Zombie


October 20, 2010 (Day 263) — Red Zombie Day No. 2 of the Halloween drink series! Are you ready to rock? Pretty much everyone knows about White Zombie (the Rob Zombie vehicle that scared suburbanite parents with their kitchy horror-movie charm). However, I was interested when I stumbled across the recipe for what was called […]

Banana Bird


September 22, 2010 (Day 235) — Banana Bird “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” — Albert Camus Farewell summer. You were hot and windy, and ungodly wet. We’ve learned some, killed some brain cells and had a great time. But, alas today is the last […]

Scorpion


September 21, 2010 (Day 234) — Scorpion It’s Tuesday, everyone. We’re firmly into the work week. It’s okay though, don’t fret. With good friends, good music, and good drinks we can make it through this work week together. So, put on some Coltrane, have yourself a seat while I pour you a Scorpion. Scorpion Juice […]
