The older Errol Morris ads trumped the recent "common sense" ads. Admit it. But this new Miller High Life redesign by Landon SF is simple and good. More pics at the Dieline.
Magic Hat's spring lager, Vinyl, is an amber lager, not gold. Label designed by Phish-aphiliate Jim Pollock.
The Beer Ranger mission: “To Protect. To Pour. To Partake.” New Belgium (you know them, they make Fat Tire -yum) introduces an American IPA.
No lemons for a twist... and no olives around. Avoid a martini crisis with this backup plan. Cornichons.
Keep track of your holiday party drinking by counting your olives. Timely tip. Don't go this far though...
From Cape Classics in South Africa this Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz delivers on its sweet promise, and labeling. Has a balanced feel and actually has a dryer nose than taste. Not for everyone.
I've had the original Vermont Gold, but Vermont Sprits have now released an "early run maple sap" vodka that sounds a little more subtle. Only 1000 bottles though, better not sleep. $45.
Do you know your CDP from your CDR, and when to drink which? Be illuminated by The Trad's latest Friday Belt, an essential weekly read.
To drink when the day is through .... Bailie Nicol Jarvie is a blended (60% malt) whiskey sold by Glenmorangie -in Scotland only though chaps.
I'm more in the M category of "Infuriator" red wine drinking... but Home Grown Farms is miles above that. Deep rasp'/blueberry color, "field blend" from California.
Whiskey Smash. The delicious and potent drink has done much to introduce restaurateurs all over Boston to the idea that they can put a few whiskey drinks on their clear spirits-dominated menus. Much more at DrinkBoston.
Bull Shot, or sometimes Bullshot. Not a shot in this case, but a Bloody Mary alternative using beef bouillon instead of tomato juice. More common in the UK.
It is all in the twist. A point that is lost with many bartenders is the twist of the twist. The action allows a spritz (almost a viper spit) of lemon oil, that is visible on the surface...
I wish I liked tomato juice. These or regular bloodys always look so damn tasty. Gazpacho Mary.
