So last night I opened up a bottle of the above, Young’s Double Chocolate Stout….wait, strike that.  Young’s LUXURY Double Chocolate Stout.  I’ll admit I’m a bit of a beer geek (expect some craft beer posts in the coming months), but Luxury beer?

I haven’t done a drinks post in quite a while, and in light of The Thin Man, I thought I would post my Martini recipe. A Martini is really one of the most simple cocktails out there, but one of the real measures of a good barman. I don’t profess to have a “perfect” recipe, but just one that I really enjoy. As with all cocktails, good ingredients are key, and in something so simple even more so.

After returning home last week to Austin for a brief visit with my family, things have already turned into preparations for farewells. My younger brother leaves for college in just a week, and I return to school a few days after.

So I know only a few weeks ago I said my summer sipper was the Old Pulteney 12, but yesterday I stopped into Berry Bros. to pick up a gift and left with something for myself as well.

Well I haven’t done a post about drinking in quite a while, so I thought I would share what I have been enjoying as of late: The Old Pulteney 12 year old.
