A Little Taste of the Crescent City

It’s been a busy week here at Money Creek: 2 cocktails and 3 bottles of wine busy! But it was while creating one of my Character Cocktails for an upcoming product launch (they’re not just for people, you know) that I was struck with inspiration for this week’s Alphatini cocktial, the letter N. And a good thing […]

Have Your Dessert (Cocktail) First!

Not that I’d know anything about testing out a super-indulgent cocktail recipe before supper. And if I were to do such a thing, it’s only be to take advantage of the light. Let’s get down to the business of the G-cocktail, shall we? Which just happened to be inspired by a certain special-occasion dessert. For those unfamiliar, the groom’s cake is […]

50 Shots of America–West Virginia

Gold and Delicious I thought we were done with the east coast last time! Looks like I was mistaken. Again. Turns out the powers that be in the state of Virginia were having some issues within themselves while the country as a whole was in a bit of an uproar. The idea that Virginia was […]

50 Shots of America–Illinois

Coming in at number 21 on the sip-by-state roster is Illinois, Land of Lincoln, which became a state on December 3, 1818.

Home […]

50 Shots of America–Ohio

Ohio is the 17th state admitted to the Union but it wasn’t quite so simple as it sounds. It wasn’t until 1953 that they were official declared the 17th state retroactively. As part of the Northwest Territory, an area became eligible for statehood once it reached a population of 60,000. In 1953 the realized there […]

50 Shots of America: New York

Oh, man, New York, the Cocktail Capital of the World (okay, so the Web tells me that Tokyo is actually the cocktail capital of the world, but Hudson, NY, was the first place that the word cocktail can be c0nfirmed in use, so :P) comes in as the 11th state of the Union having ratified […]

Sips & Shots: Kirsch Me, I’m German

Kirsch (or kirschwasser) is one of those liqueurs that, if you you have it, you probably have it because you’ve made a Black Forest Cake (aka Kirschtorte) at some point in the not too distant past. This dry cherry brandy is strong! Definitely not something I would ever sip without it being heavily diluted with […]
