In honor of The Sazerac

I consumed a sample of the newly crowned 'Official Cocktail of New Orleans' last night at the historic Hotel Driskill Bar in Austin, TX. It was, in a word magnificent despite the dearth of authentic and traditional ingredients Herbsaint and Pechaud's Bitters. Sazerac, I salute you!

From Intolerance to Mere Dislike

"I keep a bag of the Jelly Belly mixed jelly beans at my desk at work for a quick candy snack. I usually throw out the black beans because I usually dislike the combination of sugar and anise. Every once in a while I will pop one in my mouth to expand my palate. Through this effort I have moved from intolerance to mere dislike."

Party Time in Party Town

"The hurricane party is
winding down and we're
all waiting for the end.
Hell, I don't want another
drink, I only want that
last one again..."
