National Mojito Day

National Mojito Day

I like it hot. It’s been a long, sizzling summer so far, and I’m loving it. I’m not a girl for air-conditioning. I like it sultry and sweaty, with a refreshing, iced cocktail to cool me down. Light rum is a great spirit for the hot summertime, and what else but the cocktail that was created for sweltering, sexy, Cuban nights: the mojito. From my bartender point of view, they are messy, time-consuming, overall kind of a pain to make, and way too many customers order them. But as a sweaty consumer craving something thirst-quenching, I think they are perfect....

Summer is all about enjoying a drink on the patio (or lanai if you’re fancy). We checked in with all three of our experts to find out what their favorite summer drinks are.

Recipes made with ingredients like mushrooms and truffles taste great with reds like Pinot Noir and Dolcetto, which are light-bodied...

Game of Thrones Beer

I’ve traveled a lot. Still, the one journey I haven’t yet figured out how to make happen is a trip to Westeros. For those who might not be familiar with this place, Westeros is the mythical continent at the center of the Game of Throne books and the hit HBO series by the same name. It’s a brutal, uninviting place and chances are pretty good that I wouldn’t last long trying to backpack my way through the Seven Kingdoms. Still, I’m drawn into the idea of getting to know the characters of this world. I’d love to share a beer...

National Cognac Day

National Cognac Day

Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a whiskey girl; specifically bourbon with a high wheat mash bill. However, seeing as today is National Cognac Day, I’m going to spend some time talking about Cognac, aka “the king of brandies.” For those who don’t know, whiskey is basically distilled beer and brandy is distilled wine. In the 11th century, Dutch merchants bought wine from the Cognac area of France. They soon discovered that distilling the wine made it much easier to transport, as it lessened the volume. Once the distilled wine reached its destination, they would simply add water again...
