Bacardi Oakheart

The groove is in the heart…

As summer comes to a triumphant close, we can only look forward to fall looming right around the corner. The leaves begin their subtle change, cooler weather seeps its way into our hearts, and we trade in the comfort of poolside for the coziness of fireside. So what will you be drinking this fall season when the mercury begins to dip?

DO Try This At Home: Gluten & Dairy Free Chips ‘n Dip

Homemade treats that anyone can enjoy…

One of our good blogger friends @ATLCeliacGirl is seriously allergic to both gluten and dairy. Have you ever tried to find things to eat that are free of both? I’ve tried. It’s not easy. Don’t even get me started on finding options at a restaurant. The food might be gluten & dairy free, but did they cook it in a pan that previously had either of those things in it? Yeah, that makes a difference and can cause serious problems for someone with the disease. So it’s been a fun adventure coming up with healthy alternatives to food favorites with her in the kitchen, including this easy to make, lick-the-bowl-clean good dip.

Someone once said that appetizers are the little things you keep eating until you lose your appetite. And with the varied appetizers and small plates around town, it may very well be true. One can easily make an entire meal by sampling from the small plates on a menu.

Drink of the Week: Back to School Edition

 

Allow us to school you…

Perhaps, like us, you’ve noticed a bit more traffic on the roads as of late. Perhaps you’ve been stuck behind a slow-moving school bus. Or perhaps you’ve seen some youngsters scurrying down the sidwalk with backpacks and lunch boxes. Yes, it’s that time of year again, and school is back in session. And what better way to combat that added school traffic than with throwing back a drink or two after work? And for that, we suggest The Lunch Box. It’s an interesting mix of orange juice, amaretto liqueur, and beer — refreshing and delightfully boozy.

The Lunch Box

2 1/2 oz beer
2 1/2 oz orange juice
1 shot amaretto almond liqueur

Mix the beer and orange juice in a glass, drop the shot of ameretto in, then bottoms up! A variation is to mix all three ingredients together in one glass. Either way, it’s pure deliciousness.
 

Atlanta Spots to Let it Linger

 

Do you have to, do you have to let it linger? Why, yes.

While bar-hopping all over town is a noble pursuit with many rewards, it can be just as amusing to nestle into one spot for the night and watch how it morphs over the course of an evening. Efficient partygoers know how to fulfill all their debaucherous needs in one place. Settle in for dinner first, then head over to the party side of the joint and get your groove on. Read on for some one-stop spots for all your entertainment needs.

Food Truck Wednesdays in Virginia Highland

 

Put some umph in your hump day…

You see them all over the place – Virginia Highland, Midtown, Buckhead, Atlantic Station, Woodruff Arts Center. Food trucks are increasingly present, and hopefully even more so in the future. It all seemed to start with the King of Pop’s delicious, gourmet popsicles (and with flavors like chocolate sea salt, pineapple habanero, and tangerine basil, of course they’re popular); but now, food trucks are popping up all over the city and there’s no shortage of variety: Korean style tacos from the Yumbii truck, perfectly cooked fries with numerous toppings from The Fry Guy, Southern-inspired gelato flavors from Honeysuckle Gelato’s truck, every hot dog you can imagine from The Pup Truck, delicious Venezuelan stuffed, griddled corn cakes (called Arepas) from the WOW! Truck, and so much more.

Tales of the Cocktail 2011

I came…I saw…I drank…a lot.

Yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was the summer of 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana. A strong, proud, and steadfast city tested by nature over the years with residents embodying the true testament of resilience in the face of adversity. On this true journey of self-discovery the city welcomed me with open arms and introduced me to a mistress named Tales of the Cocktail.
