The summer months will be rolling in soon and we all know what means. Backyards up and down the country will become the host to numerous BBQ’s on the weekends with hosts and guests all enjoying some great food and refreshing drinks. However, for the latter, it doesn’t always have to be cold beer. Why not try something a little different by adding some popular cocktails for your guests to drink?
Alcoholic beverages and nostalgic sweets have always had a rather experimental relationship ever since the early days of unusual mixing. But, for a specific audience, a certain sweet comes to mind. And, when swirled with the perfect liquer, can often leave a punchy note that can make a collective Swizzels lover swoon. This, of course, is all about parma violets and all of their gorgeous glory.
Happy hour is an all too well-known concept where bars and restaurants offer half -price drinks and appetizers or deals on specific drinks and appetizers, normally in the late afternoon from around 4 to 6 PM. Sometimes you find those bars that have signs outside like “Happy Hour all day,” and they are always a good find and a place you'll remember, or maybe not, I don't know.
Everyone knows that your favorite cocktails are like candy for adults. If you are looking to impress your friends by throwing an over-the-top Halloween party, or prefer watching some scary movies on the couch, nothing will get you feeling like a child making their Halloween costume again like brewing some Halloween-inspired drinks.

Alright for Volume 4 I thought I would do my favorite beer/cider spots in the city. This is a more diverse list than the others have been so far. Because I go to a lot of different bars for different reasons, this should be a cool list. Some of these places have food, some don’t, but they are all very near and dear to my heart. I am not much of a sports watcher, unless it is soccer, as I have now been boycotting the NFL for several years. So having a place or two where I can watch soccer is great, and while I do have a back up bar from my normal one to watch soccer, I didn’t put it on this list, because it is literally four blocks away from the other, but I still feel like it needs an honorable mention, so to the Kangaroo and Kiwi in Ballard, I salute you.
A good entertainer knows how to treat their guests right, get them to unwind, and also manages to make the most of their time while hosting. They know that it's not just about making good conversation or having delicious food available.
I don't typically like to brag, but I really used to be able to pound down shots in my day. I'd even chase them with a nice, frosty cold one.
Very few things bring people together like cocktails and liquor. Drinking loosens people up, and gives people something to talk about when all other conversation fails. The best thing about drinking is that there's a million different ways to do it, and even more ways to enjoy it.
Wine has become the Millennnial way to kick off a good time, and let's face it, we had to put our own generational spin on wine culture. I'm not just talking about the new appreciation of boxed wine here, either.
