How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Johnnie Red"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Johnnie Red”

Of all of Johnnie Walker’s Scotch Whiskeys, Red is the cheapest, and considered to be the least fine of the batch.  I am starting today’s “Drink On” with Red because I quite enjoy a glass of Red.  It’s fiery, it burns and when I drink Black, I feel like it’s a semi-special occasion. However, that’s...
How's Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Spring Ahead"

How’s Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Spring Ahead”

The daylight is longer, and unless you have an iPhone or a stupid work computer, your clocks are all caught up with Daylight Savings Time.  Yes, it is a bitch the day it happens.  All that confusion, plus you lose an hour.  But I welcome it!  It’s all about the electrical Spring/early Summer moment when...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "The Delicious Sour"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “The Delicious Sour”

William Schmidt wanted to be an individual. Hard for a man named William to be distinguishable, even in the 1890’s.  This is why William went by the moniker William “The Only William” Schmidt. This is just the kind of turn of the (other) century nonsense I love. Schmidt was a connoisseur of Lady Liquor, and...

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: Apple Brandy Rickey

I was recently diagnosed with cataracts.  That’s right, cataracts on a 27 year old.  Tsk-tsk, as if I needed more things to feel old about.  Apparently, a simple surgery will take care of both the cataracts, as well as making possible for me to see clearly without glasses or contacts.  So…I suppose this is, in...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: "Winter Sangria"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On?: “Winter Sangria”

How am I getting my drink on in the New Year?  Winter Sangria! How is Winter Sangria different than Summer Sangria?  The fruit you put in it, basically.  Summer’s all about Mangos, Pineapples, Crushed Pom Seeds, and… whoo boy, I kind of want Summer Sangria now.  But we’ve got a long ways to go before...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On? "OH WHAT A PEAR!"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On? “OH WHAT A PEAR!”

“Oh, What a Pear!” Martini A while back I featured a drink called “Maxwell’s Plum,” a martini at the fabled, now shut Tavern on the Green in New York.  The drink I feature today is a specialty order Tavern on the Green used to arrange for couples. When someone was going to propose at the...
How is Adam Getting His Drink On? "RUBY"

How is Adam Getting His Drink On? “RUBY”

“THE RUBY” What’s In It, Adam? 2 oz. gin, 3/4 oz. Laird’s Applejack (apple brandy), 3/4 oz. Grenadine.  Shake with ice, pour over tumbler glass with ice. Where’d You Find It? My Mixologist iPhone app!  It has a function called “liquor cabinet” where you input what you got in your stock, and it cooks up...
