Monster Summoning IV: King Creole

Monster Summoning IV: King Creole

  Not a classic cocktail, this one is an original from Bobby at Fion that appears on the menu and can be ordered by any ole person off the street.  Ingredients: Rye Absinthe Aveze Coffee Bitters Has a largely nutty and roasty flavor imparted by the coffee bitters.  Aveze is a strong and divisive flavor, […]

Off the Shelf: The Beers of May

Off the Shelf: The Beers of May

The lovely Kathleen and I tasted many beers from four brewers: Avery, Pipeworks, Solemn Oath, and The Lost Abbey.   Notice how often our tastes diverged.  I’ve said this many times but I can say it again:  I don’t like rating systems because everybody likes different things.  So instead of placing it on a scale […]

Off the Shelf #3: St. George Gins

Off the Shelf #3: St. George Gins

Not long ago I saw St. George posted some pics of their fruit liqueur production and immediately made it my goal to obtain some to try.  I looked around, and all I could find at my usual providers were St. George gins.  I engaged them in the Twitterverse to see where I could get some […]

Off the Shelf: Beers of December 2014

In December, in addition to my usual go to brands (Avery, Solemn Oath, Une Annee, and of course Pipeworks) we cracked open the beer the lovely Ms. Kathleen gifted to me, the pack of International Beers from World Market. Since I received it, I’ve wondered if these would be good or if they would be […]

Alcohol 101 – What is Alcohol?

Alcohol 101 – What is Alcohol?

This next episode is taking the project in a whole different direction.  Several months ago as I was doing one of our classic cocktail episodes, it struck me that I think I know a lot more about alcohol than I do.  I have the standard understanding of what it is and where it comes from…but […]

Wine Tasting at Oak Creek Vineyards – Cornville, AZ Unfortunately I was too busy tasting all of the delicious wines to take pictures during the 2 hours that I spent here with my wife. Oak Creek Vineyards is a surprisingly laid-back with great wine and some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.

Rookie Scotch Drinkers

Rookie Scotch Drinkers

So, a couple of weeks ago I spent the night drinking scotch. Now I drink pretty rarely these days, but when I do I have a tendency to drink to get drunk. On this occasion I took my time and really just enjoyed what I was drinking. This wasn’t the first time that I drank […]
