Terminology Tuesday: The Toddy - A sweetened (usually with honey or sugar) drink of liquor and hot water, often with spices, citrus and served in a cafe glass. This begs the question: Doesn't this make a Hot Toddy redundant? Tip: The heat from the water tends to bring out the harshness of cheap alcohol even more, so always use premium brands when making a Toddy. Bonus Tip: We've found that these drinks help soothe sore throats, clear stuffed nasal passages, and temporarily remedy other symptoms of the common cold. Now you have a drink to offer your guests even if they give you the "I'm sick" excuse.
Trivia Thursday: Who is the real Captain Morgan? Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is named after Admiral Sir Henry Morgan was an Admiral of the English Royal Navy, a privateer, and a pirate who made a name for himself during activities in the Caribbean, primarily raiding Spanish settlements. He earned a reputation as one of the most notorious and successful privateers in history, and one of the most ruthless among those active along the Spanish Main.
Where Did It Come From: Tequila Tequila was first produced in the 15th century near the location of the city of Tequila, which was not officially established until 1666. The Aztec people had previously made a fermented beverage from the agave plant, which they called octli – later called pulque – long before the Spanish arrived in 1521. When the Spanish conquistadors ran out of their own brandy, they began to distill agave to produce one of North America's first indigenous distilled spirits.
Where Did Come From? Gin & Tonic This cocktail was introduced by the army of the British East India Company in India. In India and other tropical regions, malaria was a persistent problem. In the 1700s it was discovered that quinine could be used to treat the disease, although the bitter taste was unpleasant. British officers in India in the early 19th century took to adding a mixture of water, sugar, lime and gin to the quinine in order to make the drink more palatable. Since it is no longer used as an antimalarial, tonic water today contains much less quinine, is usually sweetened, and is consequently much less bitter. SOURCE: Wikipedia

Thursday Trivia: According to an article in the Economist titled "The History of Drinking: Uncorking the Past," as Magellan prepared to sail around the world in 1519, he spent more on Sherry (a Spanish wine) than on weapons. Was he an alcoholic or just a pacifist? The world may never know.
Friday Funnies! A very shy guy goes into a tavern and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage, he finally walks over to her and asks tentatively, “Umm, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?” She responds by yelling at the top of her lungs, “No, I won’t sleep with you tonight!” Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally, the guy is hopelessly and completely embarrassed, and so he slinks back to his table. After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, “I’m sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I’m a graduate student in psychology and I’m studying how people respond to embarrassing situations.” To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, “What do you mean two hundred dollars?”
Bar Terminology Tuesday - Box: You pour everything into a shaker without ice - just so the ingredients blend together - you don't shake this drink with ice. The reason for this is some bartenders claim that shaking drinks too vigorously can "bruise" the alcohol which will change the end result of the flavor of the cocktail. In our opinion, even if this "bruising" did exist it would only change the flavor in such a minor way - unnoticeable to most.
Friday Funnies! A guy walks into a bar and says to the bartender, "I want you to give me 12-year scotch, and don't try to fool me because I can tell the difference. "The bartender is skeptical and decides to try to trick the man with 5-year scotch. The man takes a sip, scowls and says, "Bartender, this crap is 5-year scotch. I told you I want 12-year scotch." The bartender tries once more with 8-year scotch. The man takes a sip, grimaces and says, "Bartender, I don't want 8-year scotch like this filth. Give me 12-year scotch!" Impressed, the bartender gets the 12-year scotch, the man takes a sip and sighs, "Ah, now that's the real thing." A disgusting, grimy, stinking drunk has been watching all this with great interest. He stumbles over and sets a glass down in front of the man and says, "Hey, I think that's really far out what you can do. Try this one." The man takes a sip and immediately spits out the liquid and cries, "Yechhh! This stuff tastes like piss!" The drunk's eyes light up and he says, "Yeah, now how old am I?"
