reviewed Heineken. December 31, 2008
Heineken
While I really enjoy microbrews Heineken is a great alternative to the heaviness of the Hef's in the marketplace.   It is light and crisp with a bit of a kick ( like me). It comes in many varieties …
reviewed Guinness Draught. December 10, 2008
Guinness
Guinness is one of my favorite beers.  The thick, creamy brew feels like you're almost drinking a dessert.  Interestingly enough, a Guinness has less calories than the same amount of a regular …
reviewed Mojito. December 13, 2008
Mojito
Mojitos are a tough drink to get right- too much rum and it overpowers the drink and too little mint doesn't give the drink enough of its signature refreshing kick. It helps to use a mortar and pestly …

Mimosa
Who decided champagne and orange juice was an ok breakfast choice? Whoever it is, I plan to give him or her a big wet one. The bubbly effervescence of the champagne and the slight tartness of the orange …

Midori Sour
The Midori sour is probably my favorite cocktail made with Midori mix.  Not only do I love its tangy, non-alcoholic taste, its emerald green color is pretty awesome, too!  This is one drink …
reviewed Piña Colada. December 10, 2008
Piña Colada
A piña colada is my cocktail of choice when I'm lounging with my friends or my favorite book by the beach.  Coconut and pineapple, plus rum?  Yes, please!  Piña coladas are also super simple …

Long Island Iced Tea
As someone with a small bladder, I sure can appreciate a Long Island Iced Tea.  This is one of few cocktails made of various liquors, four to be exact, plus a liqueur.  I love watching skilled …

Alexander Grappa
When it comes to wine or spirits, I'm no expert. But when it comes to packaging, I can tell you if an item is going to sell or not. And sell away this one did. Alexander Grappa Aqua di Vita!   …

Strawberry daiquiri
Strawberry Daiquiri. Even the name is chic, I simply love the sound of it. Perhaps it's the main reason why I order it that much! Strawberry tastes even better here than fresh! One can tell just by …

Red Wine
For me, the way I drink red wine is as sinful as it gets (from the French perspective, that is!). Generally, I don't like the bitter and dry taste of wine. So, what do I do with all those bottles …

Costco Private Label Wines (Kirkland Wine)
Costco's private label wines are great for a number of reasons, but in my opinion it allows you to experiment and try something new with the comfort and security of knowing you have the Kirkland brand …

Costco Private Label Wines (Kirkland Wine)

reviewed Highland Scottish Whisky. November 09, 2011
Highland Scottish Whisky
Aberlour is probably  my favorite single malt scotch, but its followed very closely by Oban.  Actually depending on my mood this could change and Oban might be my favorite for the evening. …

Spec's
My fair home state of Louisiana has a ton of things to love about it.  From the people to the food to the parties, there isn't much I'd change about my home state.  One thing I …

Guinness
I am going to review Guinness Draft not as a beer snob but as a home brewer.  I don't drink much beer I buy because I brew enough mead and beer for myself and probably my friends too :-).   …

So, where does the best rum come from? Puerto Rico? Nah! Cuba!   Then again, I'm not a drinker, who am I to say which is the best?! ;-)      Havana Club is something …
