Gojira: my new-found infatuation with matcha

“I think I love you, so what am I so afraid of”….I’ve had that old David Cassidy song replaying in my head now for like a month. I thought you should know. Cool story, bro. It’s no secret around these here parts that I get joy-boners with anything remotely related to Japanese culture and their drink more

Eventing: Summer Solstice (Fuck This Snow)

Oh the weather outside is… fuck is it STILL snowing?! This is now the 3rd nail appointment I’ve had canceled on me in the past 2 weeks due to the, ummm… 7 feet of snow we’ve gotten in New England? I’m starting to feel like Luke Skywalker riding a Taun Taun in Hoth for crying drink more

River Of Gold

First post of the year…one that I had planned for the END of last year but here we are…yayyyy?!? Screw it. So by now the holidays and all their bloated spectacle are but a distant memory, yet all the weight that you got as a “present” is surely still sticking around. But it’s cool, because drink more

Pillar of Autumn (End Of Season)

Living in New England, you get rich flavors growing all over the place in random orchards and farms so we’re lucky to have a lot of variety, which works wonders when making cocktails. Like this one. When I started writing this post, I had a terrible cold (probably not “terrible” but I’m a big baby drink more

Eventing: Thirst Boston 2014

Thirst Boston 2014 came and went like rolling thunder. In its second year running, the spiritual successor to drink more

Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event, Year 2: Into The Storm

2nd year of Death To Sour Mix: complete! …What that means exactly, I don’t know. I had plans and hopes & dreams for all of this but quite frankly, I’ve lost that clarity, along with so many other things as of late. So what does this site still mean to me? Everything. I love all the drink more

Rum Is The New Black

This is my absolute favorite way to enjoy a rum old fashioned. It has sweetness, depth and a smoothness that makes it hard to resist whenever I look at my bottles of rum. Autumn is here. I’m not a beach person (even though I got that beach bod! FELLAS, AMIRIGHT?! …laughs alone in an empty drink more


If you like drinks that are different, this is one of those. Tart from the citrus and the sherry, sweet from the orgeat and smoky from the mezcal & hot sauce. If you have some spicy bitters you’ve been meaning to use again, now is the time Mic check, 2-1-2. Sibilance… Sibilance… Sorry, its been drink more

Eventing: Prym Rum

We meet again. I’m gonna be honest with you off the bat: Some entries for my Eventing series will be wayyy shorter than others and that is mainly because, believe it or not, sometimes I’m trying to learn about this stuff and therefore forget to take photos. But since we’re being honest, sometimes I’m just drink more

True Life: I’m Obsessed With Clear Ice

Eventing: Negroni Week 2014

The Negroni; A drink that to be completely honest, I just couldn’t get into for the longest time. In all fairness, you go to 5 different bars and they might serve you that cocktail 5 different ways. My favorite “custom iteration” was always the shaken, no vermouth, cheap gin with muddled orange. Mmmm… if I drink more
