The Drinking Begins

I received a metal martini "shaker" made by OXO for Christmas.

I just fired it up in preparation for going outside to grill up the traditional New Year's Eve
dinner - lobster tails.

I digress. This metal martini shaker is freaking awesome. I finally able to make a martini (I used Skyy vodka) with those little shards of ice floating in them. I was never able to do that with my old shaker that was made out of plastic.

Ah, a slice of heaven.

Happy New Year!


A New Years Eve

Tried to run too many errands today so I cound finally just get home, relax and spend time with the family.

An interesting thing occured while I was at the shooting range this afternoon. I noticed a young woman from my last CCW class. She was in the lane next to me. She was giving one of those ultra-light .38 revolvers a test drive. I hated to see her make a bad purchase. Those light .38's appeal to many people because they are light and easy to carry but they deliver a heck of a kick when fired. It even hurts my wrist and I am an experienced shooter.

I told her to steer clear of those guns.


A tip o' the cap to the "While Drinking, I" blog

One of my favorite blogs is the "While Drinking, I" blog that can be found here.

He recently mentioned Maker's Mark. I do not have much experience with this bourbon.

I personally enjoy Blanton's Single Barrel but it is a bit pricey.

Quite a few of my buds have told me to try mixing ginger ale with Maker's Mark.

My perspective on that is one of revulsion. If a bourbon is good enough to sip straight then why mix it with soda pop.

I'm outta here. Going to go shoot at my local range.



This year's Winterhook offering by Red Hook is one tasty Winter brew.

I absolutely love this beer with a great cigar. I enjoyed one last night with an "Aroma de Cuba" churchill size cigar.

Heaven on earth.
