You’re All Right….

I allowed the last comment on our first video as it only seemed fair.  Now who will be the bigger man, it's up to you guys.  The point everyone seems to be missing is that there is no right or wrong.  You can be a gentleman all you want, the fact is some women don't need or want  our help.  In today's society more women will stand up for themselves.  Great I say. Most women I have dated, generally want me to walk away from a confrontation.  Yet as someone who is interfering, or sorry, engaging another for the sake of protecting a woman's honor, pride or rights, whatever you want to...

Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey Neat…..

Kentucky Bourbon Now I didn't plan on talking about alcohol tonight, especially not whiskey, but since the restaurant has been slow the last couple days, I really have no good stories to tell. I know Lynn answered an email yesterday about Gin Rickey and seemed to enjoy every minute. Please tell me we haven't create a monster, but hey, if we can get her to try other drinks all the better.  No more wine for you.  Just kidding, I love wine. Now generally I'm a Canadian Rye Whiskey drinker, and proud of it. I have tried others, the likes of, Scotch, Irish and Tennessee. However, I always...

Whiskey Drinks…oh so good…

Now some here have been made with Canadian, such as the Whiskey Sour or Manhattan.  I'm sure you can substitute but let's try with Bourbon.  I've also listed a few for the Honey Reserve from Evan Williams. The Stinger ½ oz. Honey Reserve ½ oz. Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey ½ oz. Energy Drink Splash of Grenadine Shake over ice and strain into shot glass Honey Splash 2 oz. Honey Reserve 3 oz. Cranberry Juice 1 oz. Lemon Lime Soda Shake and pour over ice Bourbon & Cream Martini 1 oz. Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon 1 oz. coffee...

Gin Rickey

Well here we are in what I promise you will be a rare post...Lynn posting about drinks, drink recipes, and drink trivia. I am not confused about who on the drink guy team are the experts in these areas, and it is not me! I do however find myself in a strange place, so thus, this post! A few minutes ago a question was posed to the drink guy Glenn on our FaceBook fan page of "The Drink Guy". The question was simple...asking about the recipe for a Gin Rickey. Dale, (who is a friend so I'm hoping he does not mind me using his real name lol!) hails from the beautiful state of Kentucky. In...

Wow, WTF….

I'm stunned at the responses we received here and on facebook and twitter.  I would like to thank you all for your input, it was a delight to read all of them.  This first episode of  TDG TV was a hit and certainly calls for a follow up episode.  This seems to be an unresolved issue here at TDG, and has caused a very heated debate between The Drink Guy and The Life Coach, none of it caught on film.  I would like to take this time to invite all who commented to join us for round two of  What Should the Bartender Do. We will figure out a place and date, as I might need some help on...

Valentines Day….

So, I just want to know what everyone thinks is the perfect day for Valentines. I usually work, since it is one of the busiest days of the year in the restaurant/bar industry. I will say I never really understood why. It's like every cheap, lame or unromantic person in the world uses this day to make up for lost time. Or they use this day especially, to say I still love you. Like it makes up for the rest of the year when you couldn't say those three words. Don't get me wrong I will buy a card for Valentines, but to me it isn't unlike any other day. Why are holidays, birthdays, mothers...

Some Absinthe Recipes…..

As you know I love Absinthe, so I thought some recipes were in order.  I also threw in one for cooking that I will be trying this weekend.  It looks and sounds awesome.  I will have to get some relatives to send me another bottle, or two.  These come from the good people at Hapsburg. Absinthe Recipe - Punch© Mixed by Simon Sheena of Speciality Drinks. 20ml Hapsburge Absinthe for Cocktails. 20ml Rye Whiskey. 20ml Velvet Falernum. 100ml Pink Grapefruit Juice. Grated Nutmeg and Orange Peel shavings to garnish. Shake with ice and strain into a tall glass full of cubed ice...

Local Beer Brewing Club: Are you an SOB?

Championship Beer Brewing: I am part of a local beer brewing club, although I have to admit I have never attended an event but I probably should. Maybe I can do a video of the next event. Anyway, they just ran a contest and I thought I would post the result here just for the other readers. This is from George Leet who is a beer brewing guru. Maybe I'll do an video interview of his process if he doesn't mind sometime for this website. Anyway enjoy: The Amsterdam Nut Brown contest winners have been announced. Roger Beal, Wayne Reeves, and Amsterdam Brewmaster Jamie Mistry judged...

Dear Fed Up…

Dear Drink Guy: You must see plenty of this. How do you suggest I deal with one of “those” friends, the one who just can’t control their drinking or their behavior when they drink? I’m tired of dealing with their drunken ass, & they refuse to listen to anyone about it. Fed Up (but torn by friendship) Lynn's Two Cents... I realize that this question has been directed to our resident drink guy Glenn, who will most certainly have seen a lot of this over the years and most assuredly have some great advice for "Fed Up"...however; I would feel remiss if I did not add my...

Feel The Pain!!!!

Well I'm certainly not talking about working out.  I've been under the weather the last few days and it's my own fault.  When you drink three out of four nights something is bound to give.  There certainly are other factors involved, and no I don't mean the hard stuff.  I just can't remember her name so it's best not to bring her up.  Alcohol does weaken the immune system and cause memory loss. Wow, that brings me back to another name forgotten, or never knew.  I'm not sure.  We only knew her for four days, she drove us home all those nights and drank till the wee hours of the...
