Notification “You won! I knew you were going to freak out if you won, so I thought I had better be the one to call you and share the news. Are you excited!? I know you are!!

Pitcher Cocktails With Rum
Craft cocktails are perfect for nights out, but when you’re throwing a party you might want to ditch perfection in favor of spending more time with your guests. Big batch cocktails stirred up and served up in crowd-sized containers take the pressure off making sure everyone has a drink and let you enjoy yourself. They’re also just as tasty as single cocktails.
Yaka Hula Hickey Dula
It's weird to think about drinking in high school as "something we just did." There's so much talk about getting kids to "just say no" to drugs and alcohol. I'm sure that every generation thinks that they're different, but we drank and didn't do stupid stuff. Sure we were capable of it, but most of us didn't do dumb shit. We drank, got drunk and usually passed out wherever we were. But I enjoyed drinking alcohol in high school and beyond. I've been drinking for a long time and I thought that I had had most of the drinks that had been created. Drinks with Everclear (Woof!). Drinks with Malort. (Ewww!) And everything in between. I wasn't even much of a beer connoisseur. I drank Milwaukee's Best in high school and college. And I pretty much stuck to Calvert and coke if I wanted something a little harder. Today I drink craft beers which totally doesn't seem like me, but I love them! Most of them are pretty hoppy, which is nothing like Milwaukee's Best or any other domestic beer for that matter, but I feel like I'm more of an adult when I drink these beers. I also feel like an adult when I drink cocktails. I'm still not much of a mixologist as I tend to stick to simple drinks these days. Beer. Dirty Martini. Straight bourbon. But I am always game for an interesting drink and I'm willing to try just about anything. (I mean, I tried Malort.)
Not your Ordinary Highball (the Sequel)
In an earlier post, I discussed the creative process in conceptualizing a quality cocktail. The cocktail was named, “Mercy Mercy, Me”. A cocktail made with a synergistic merge of Japanese influenced ingredients. It combines green tea, Japanese whisky, Asian pear, and ginger. All coalesced in the style of a highball; embellished with the effervescence of a Shinko Pear Cider.

The Best Christmas Food Pairing
When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of Christmas was the milk and cookies. Unfortunately, I never got to do the homemade sugar cookies. I never got to do the homemade dough, rolling it out, cutting them with cookie cutters, and decorating them. My mom was always too busy. So, she would pick up a bag of Mrs. Fields whenever she went to the mall. Those cookies did not last long. Come Christmas Eve, there would usually only be one cookie left for Santa and half a glass of milk. Those are fond memories of my childhood.
