Happy Hump Day!  If we were to look at the week as a voyage, we are halfway there. I am usually one of those who is watching ESPN and getting my game on the week prior to the Super Bowl.  But, quite honestly, the “Deflationgate” has got me turned off.  Talk about dumbing up America. […]

Good Sunday to all of you!  Since we are coming into this weekend without football, I felt this would be the perfect day to introduce a cocktail that is only meant to put the exclamation point on “relax”.  A very smooth, yet heavy, beverage that is perfect to fill your tummy the rest of the […]

Today, I am feeling like a nice spiced rum beverage that will better my typical spiced rum and coke cocktail.  Here is one that should do the trick.  If nothing else, maybe after a couple of these, I will feel like finding a buried treasure or something.

Today’s Drink of the Day has one of my favorite secondary ingredients in it: Tawny Port.  No matter what you are adding this ingredient to, it seems to bring out the best of whatever its working with.  There is no exception to that rule here.  In fact, I tend to use a spirit that is […]

Don’t let the name of this cocktail fool you.  This is a great beverage that is both soothing and rather simple to make and, unlike the name, you won’t be afraid to tell your friends about enjoying it the night before. The flavor combination of coconut and peach is blended nicely with the orange juice […]
