Update Tonight

Later tonight I will have an update, just a few cocktail recipes and ideas that you might want to use for the upcoming holidays.  Thursday, Beaujolais Nouveau becomes legal for sale in the US and I will be able to review it for you.  Haven't heard much on this year's vintage, but last year was supposedly the best vintage in seventy years. 

Feeling a little sick again but I think I might skip out on the Theraflu and whiskey.  Louisiana Satsumas are in season right now and loaded with good nutrients so I think I'm going to eat a few of those today.
Also, here's a cocktail I whipped up last year with the lucid fruit.

Switchblade
•3½ oz Satsuma Juice (or Orange juice if not available)
•1½ oz Premium Vodka
•2-3 mint leaves lightly coated in sugar

Combine in a shaker with ice, stir and strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with mint if desired.


Also, I have posted a poll to the left side of the page.  I'm curious of whether or not you think I should use a point scale to rate the beer and wine reviews on here, or should i just keep doing what I'm doing?

  5. Get well soon man. As far as the point scale goes, it's all personal preference. It doesn't matter to me either way, I think you're doing great as is.

  8. I'm not much of a fan of Beaujolais Nouveau, but if you're particularly impressed with this year's offering, I may have to give it a shot.

  10. I like the point scale so I can compare it to other things in its category. Other than that, it's just a representation of my opinion of it, not that of everyone else.
