Holiday Cocktail Guide 2012

Tis the season…to be drinking

For most, the holiday season can be placed in one of two categories: pure enjoyment and utter annoyance. Being a Scrooge and coming from the school of thought of the latter, I try to keep some extra holiday cheer on hand to get me through the tough times.

National Scotch Day 2011

There is no such thing as a bad whisky…

“Some whiskies just happen to be better than others.” William Faulkner couldn’t have been more right. Today the center of the libation world revolves around the best thing to come out of Scotland since The Highlander. That was based on a true story ya know. Yes. I’m talking about Scotch whisky. So raise your glass with me in a toast to celebrate National Scotch Day! Kilt optional.


The Perfect Drink for the 4th of July

The American Sweetheart

Whiskey is truly an American liquor. Don’t believe us? Listen to that Don McLean song, “American Pie” (“…Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye, and singin’, this’ll be the day that I die…”)  You can’t argue with Don. As such, the perfect drink to celebrate American independence must include whiskey. So, we present to you the “American Sweetheart” cocktail.  Shake together one ounce each of bourbon whiskey and Southern Comfort, a dash of dry vermouth, sour mix to taste, and serve it up in a rocks glass. One sip and you’ll be shouting, “Oh! Sweet land of liberty!” Enjoy.

The Irish Breakfast Shot : Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day

Shots! Shots! Shots!

No doubt you’ll hear that phrase a time or two if you’re out drinking and celebrating this St. Patrick’s Day. And, if you are so inclined to forego the green beer and instead throw back a shot or two, our pick for the perfect shot is The Irish Breakfast. It’s one shot of half Irish Whiskey and half butterscotch schnapps, followed immediately by one shot of pure orange juice, which is finally followed by some crispy bacon. Between the butterscotch, the juice, and the bacon, the taste is similar to dragging your bacon through the syrup from your pancakes.  And doesn’t Irish Whiskey make breakfast more fun? We think so.

For more ways to celebrate today, check out our St. Pat’s Day post on where to get your Irish on.

St. Patrick’s Day 2011

Kiss me…I may or may not be Irish.

I can think of no better way to honor one of the most commonly recognized patron saints of Ireland than by eating Irish food and guzzling many, many beers. Can you?  I didn’t think so.  And we’re in luck…there are plenty of restaurants and pubs in Atlanta to keep our Irish eyes smiling.
