220. Sherry and Ice

220. Sherry and Ice - Hero

Come on, these are just getting ridiculous. Ice should not be an ingredient. Unless you blend it, in which case I give it a pass.

However, on the bright side, this one is easy to news. Because sports on ice are fun to watch at the Olympics. Unfortunately, it has not been going so well for Team USA’s figure skaters… I don’t usually watch that much skating but have a fair amount this year; it seems like people are falling a lot more than I would expect. Is this normal? OR IS IT A KOREAN PLOT?!?!?!? Let me know.

219. Sherry and Bitters

219. Sherry and Bitters - Hero

Next on the list of lame two-ingredient cocktails (at least they’re easy to make!), one of my favorite ingredients! Let’s see if it rescues the drink.

Let’s see, how can I put the words in this cocktail into a story about the Olympics? Which is clearly the important news right now… Here’s an interview with the “team mom” for a lot of Team USA – Sherry Von Reisen. Boom.

217. Brandy and Gum

217. Brandy and Gum - Hero

Oof, remember this blog? I do! Here’s another drink. Always love a good use of gum syrup. I still have a big bottle I’m slowly working through.

What’s the news that everyone’s talking about after this weekend? Why, the Big Gum, of course! What’s that? It’s the Big Game? The Super Bowl? Oh, well, that makes much more sense. Anyways, as I’m sure everyone is aware, although if you’re playing this silly game you probably are not aware AND STOP READING NOW, it was alas not my home team, the New England Patriots, but it was still a pretty good game and it seemed like the Philadelphia Eagles deserved it. Also, I liked the David Harbour Tide ads.

Under the Dom (Perignon)

Under the Dom - Hero

My friends are theming their annual Halloween party after Stephen King’s opus this year, and they asked me to do a few cocktails. While I can’t actually make as many as I came up with for the party itself, I couldn’t resist the puns, and I tested most of them out at home. So here we go! Note: I’m not putting news in these because I feel like the Halloween tie-in is close enough.

Jalapeño Lemonade

Jalapeno Lemonade - Hero

Oy, I am so behind. So much travel! Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up in the coming weeks. We’ll see. Anyways, here’s a super tasty drink I made for a recent party, not from Jerry Thomas but from some other Jerry named Jerry James Stone. God bless the internet.

Well, the big news here I think is Comey’s spicy testimony before Congress about his dealings with President Trump. Yes, Comey got fired, but he came off very well in this proceeding – well spoken and clear. Now, everybody knows his name, whereas at least I certainly didn’t before this year. And he got 19.5 million viewers, at least! When life gives you lemons (pink slips), make lemonade (tell the truth)! [Those are both real stretches, I apologize.]
