Cocktails and Such

Tequila.  I like tequila.  I like whiskey too.  Yep.  Tequila and Whiskey.  And gin.  Tequila, whiskey, and gin.  And beer.  Oh boy, do I like beer!  But more than all that, I love a good cocktail.  So how do we bring it all together?  How do we decide what exactly we will serve?  Especially amidst […]

Here is the only thing I’m going to write: It’s gonna be good when it’s done!
