When a product claims to revolutionize a particular market, especially with some kind of fast-forward effect, a lot of us run to the store, purchase said product, and slather it all over our bodies, friends, and pets. Ask anyone who’s used a “rapid wrinkle repair” cream or tried to “Bulk up!!” or “Lose two dress sizes!!!” […]
Not asking the way Jerry Seinfeld asks what’s the deal with airport peanuts (actually…does he ever do that?). Asking in the way people fairly interested in bourbon, semi-versed in distilling history, and completely out-priced to enter the annual mosh pit Pappy craze, might ask: with a bit of terror, a bit of annoyance, and just […]
There are two kinds of people in this world (or three kinds, including people who try to defend Star Wars Episodes 1 through 3). But among drinkers, there’s the kind who’ve had an Old Fashioned, and those who haven’t. Within those categories are further subdivisions: those who’ve not only had an Old Fashioned cocktail, but […]

Fall is in the air and that means whiskey drinks are coming into season – not that they were ever ”out” of season to begin with, but the cool temps and crisp air always seem to make for the perfect excuse to indulge in a whiskey cocktail.
In fact, bourbon doesn’t have to be made anywhere near Kentucky—and it can still be 100% authentic. It’s called “America’s Native Spirit,” after all, not “Kentucky’s Native Spirit.” Not that you should blurt this out to a Kentuckian after you’ve both had a few. Let’s just look at the unbiased, sober (so to speak) regulations […]
It’s National Bourbon Month, and we thought there was no better way to celebrate than with this bourbon ice cream float. Think of the float as a grown-up version of the root beer floats you loved as a kid. The drink is still as creamy and decadent as ever, but now it includes a nice […]
