AlcoHOLidays | Birthday Special | Pineapple Birthday Cake

Okay, okay, while not a holiday in the strictest sense, birthdays are very important points in our lives and everyone has one (whether they choose to celebrate it or not). Since my birthday is next week I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate with a festive cocktail reminiscent of a decadent birthday cake with […]

AlcoHOLidays | Peach Cobbler Day | Early Summer Peach

On the south side of Tallahassee there’s a butcher shop cum lunch counter that features different entrees each day of the week. It is a haven to southern comfort foods and on Fridays we used to go there to pickup meatloaf and mashed potatoes with cornbread and okra (or greens) for lunch. Used to because […]

AlcoHOLidays | Girl Scout Cookie Week | Coconut Dream

Oh, yes, it’s that time again. If you haven’t been accosted coming out of your local supermarket I’m sure someone on your friend’s list has posted, shared, or otherwise reminded you that, indeed, it is Cookie Time once again. According to my sources, the official Girl Scout Cookie Week is March 10-16, 2013. What started out as […]

AlcoHOLidays | Banana Cream Pie Day | Banana Cream-Tini

You gotta love it when the holidays lend themselves so easily to a cocktail, right? March 2 is Banana Cream Pie Day and I’m having trouble coming up with any objections to such a day existing. Banana pies and banana cream custards go back to the late-1800s, but the first written record specifically for the banana […]

AlcoHOLidays | Sweetest Day | Candy Coated Cocktail

Not something we commonly celebrate down here in the South, Sweetest Day (3rd Saturday of October) is one of those holidays you tend to hear about at the last minute and assume that it’s some trumped-up corporate money-grab by the candy and card companies. Turns out, there’s a little more to it than that (thank goodness). Back […]

That’s How the Cookie Crumbles

Or, rather, shakes. Okay, the O-cocktail in this series is another one I’ve been looking forward to getting just right. We first had it ages ago at a tapas-style restaurant. We’d gone there after a late movie and ate (and drank) at the bar. While we weren’t really looking for another full cocktail (we’d each […]

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 […]

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 to the third-largest city in the country, the state is a bit top-heavy with almost three-quarters of the state’s population concentrated in the northeast: in and around the city of Chicago. Home […]
