Cocktails / April 26, 2017 / No Comments.


We’re about to get to the important business of ranking cocktail garnishes. But first, a few ground rules.

Rule #1: We’re talking about edible cocktail garnishes. We can debate the relative merits of cocktail umbrellas and those little plastic animals/choking hazards in your scorpion bowl another day.

Drink Weed Every Day

Cocktails / April 18, 2017 / No Comments.

You’ve heard of cannabis brownies.

Cannabis gummy bears.

Even cannabis artisan chocolates.

And now, there are cannabis cocktails.

Since we’re not quite evolved enough (YET) to legally serve these concoctions at your local bar or restaurant, Seattle-based Craft Elixirs created small-batch cannibals syrups that contain local seasonal flavors, natural sweeteners, and your favorite strains of weed, so you can make a ganga-laced drink at home.

More Like Easter Sunday Funday

Cocktails / April 12, 2017 / No Comments.


Things you might associate with Easter:

  • Going to church.
  • Big fancy hats.
  • A bunny.
  • Hunting for eggs. (“Jeez Dad, you really mailed it in this year, that egg is just sitting in the middle of the lawn.”)
  • Wondering what a bunny and eggs have to do with each other, or with anything, really.
  • Ham.

Things you probably don’t associate with Easter:

  • Drinking.

But while Easter isn’t a big drinking holiday, it is a holiday, and therefore you’re probably going to do some drankin’.

Cocktails / April 6, 2017 / No Comments.


We love to drink. Drinking in America wouldn’t exist if we didn’t. But more often than not we find ourselves wanting to enjoy a good drink without the repercussion of having to drag ourselves to bed at the end of the night.

So in hopes of future drinking without any regrets, here are some of our favorite low-key, low-alcohol content cocktails. Drink up.

Spring Break Forever

Cocktails / March 23, 2017 / No Comments.


Remember the iconic scene of 2013’s Spring Breakers when James Franco’s character Alien, (possibly his most transformative role yet) stood on the beach and whispered  “Spring break, forever” as the warm Miami breeze went through his beaded cornrows? Whether those braids were real or fake we may never know, but there’s a bigger issue we’d like to address. Alien certainly was not on spring break, and sadly, neither are we. But hey, we get it, just because you aren’t on the warm sand beaches of Cancun doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you are, or at the very least drink like you are. Here are some Spring Break cocktails to drink when you aren’t on Spring Break but everyone else is.

Go Green!

Cocktails / March 16, 2017 / No Comments.


Winter storm Stella knew what she was doing when she kept most of the east coast stuck in doors this week. You might have used the day to reorganize your closet (that Nickelback t-shirt from high school will never be “fashionably ironic”) or try that new crockpot recipe (aka dump any ingredient you have and let it simmer for 4 hours), but we used the time off to gear up for the weekend.

Just about everything seems to have a national day- ice cream, popcorn, margaritas- you name it. Except for the Moscow Mule. Invented in 1941 by Smirnoff, the Moscow Mule has been making a comeback in recent years.
