Pomegranate Daiquiris – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

I remember as a kid, riding my bike over to the 7-11 to get a Slurpee. On a hot day it was worth the ride knowing that I would soon be sucking the icy, fruity concoction in through the striped straw, sitting in the shade of our front lawn tree. Makes me happy just thinking back on it. Now that I am all grown up, it doesn’t mean that a Slurpee won’t be that satisfying again, it just means that it has alcohol in it now and I won’t be riding my bike! Continue reading

Iced Mint Green Tea – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

We’re having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave! Living in southern California we are used to the Santa Ana winds picking up and making the temperatures spike but this week has been in the high 90’s and the wind has been ferocious! I really needed something to cool things off and this iced tea sounded like just the ticket. With the green tea, mint and honey, it’s down right healthy!  Continue reading

Cucumber Lemonade Cooler – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

Arrggh…….it’s income tax time again! I really do hate this time of year! I’d rather have a root canal! The dinning room table and floor are covered with paperwork, all sorted into neat little piles. The calculator is on fire, the spread sheet is starting to fill in, the brain is spinning, I think I’m going to scream! Continue reading

Dancing Leprechaun – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

tall with lemon twist

I hear the mischievous spirit from traditional Irish folklore knocking at my door. Is it really that time of year again? Thankfully yes, and I am pulling out my favorite St Patrick’s day party gear and getting ready for the corned beef, the singing and a wearing of the green.

Whether you believe in leprechauns or not, a couple of these and you’ll be dancing like one! Continue reading

Lover’s Champagne Punch – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

I don’t know about you, but when Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend I have no desire at all to dine out with massive amounts of people. The service level is not stellar on Valentine’s Day anyway but a weekend absolutely guarantees the romance will be killed. Continue reading

Apple Crisp Martini – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

Every year my girlfriend Kathy and I search for the season’s perfect summer and holiday cocktail. Well this year I am voting for the Apple Crisp Martini to launch the Thanksgiving holiday dinner! It has all the flavors of Fall but with a fun twist of a liqueur that you don’t hear about often enough.

Cinnamon Toast Toddy – Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

Last night I smelled wood fire smoke in the air and that always makes me feel like fall is really here. The days are still pleasantly warm but there is a chilly nip in the air at night. What better reason do we need than this to snuggle up with a hot toddy and a good movie to start the weekend in comfort?

Captain Ghouladas ~ Friday’s 5 o’clock Wet Your Whistle Call!

Captain Gouladas

There’s been a mutiny on the pirate ship and the crew is celebrating this Halloween massacre with a bloody good cocktail. The tell tale sign is not the blood on their hands but the stain on their lips as they toss back their Captain Ghouladas. Cheers Matey! Continue reading
