I'm cold. Not just cold from the coming Fall, but from the drinks that seem to do little more than make me buzzed.  I want to drink things that warm me up inside.  This is not to say that warmth only comes from alcohol.  Far from.  What I want is creativity through the use of great ingredients.  This warms me up inside!
As I like to experiment with new liquors to the market- I'm also interested in using liquors that are familiar to me in a new and interesting manner.

The first drink I call the Zombie Root Carousel.  It's a creative little slurp that uses USDA Certified Organic Root- the alcoholic precursor to Root Beer is woven into this drink.  It's a creative drink- quite interesting in a way not yet discovered by all.  Only a few have discovered Root.  That's what makes it very interesting!

Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction Logo T-Shirt

Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten really into Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (often shortened to Art in the Age). I’ve featured them in the past, but I never realized they were located in Philadelphia and have a flagship retail store here (which I will be going to soon). They just do a ton of cool stuff, my favorite being their crazy awesome organic and historical liqueurs (a  big part of my birthday present to myself). I bought Root, and Snap, which are both incredibly delicious. They also have a third, Rhuby, which was unfortunately sold out when I went to the liquor store. The two that I got are amazing though, and I think they’re fairly well distributed at this point, so you have a chance of finding it in your area. I heartily recommend that you check out the descriptions for all of them–they are indeed as delicious as they sound (if not more…).

Philly, Without the Cheese

No, Philadelphia has not suddenly turned into Miami. But between the town's two raddest neighborhoods - Old City and Northern Liberties - you'll find stores that get it right, kick-ass BYO restaurants, and bars that care more about local craft beers than the Eagles game. Call it Philly's awakening.

Drago Centro Drops New Fall Cocktails, Discounted Tonight in Downtown

Drago Centro just dropped a new cocktail list for fall, employing strong names, curios such as coca-infused tequila, quince gastrique, and fig and basil water, and co-habituating spirits like Del Maguey mezcal with Bulleit Bourbon, on this list of eleven new libations. In a possible effort to make you forget that one of these drinks is named after a Phish song ("Lushington"), tonight and only tonight, the drinks will each be available for only eight dollars at the Downtown Italian, a nice 33.33% discount off of their normal price-tag. Check out Drago Centro's full new cocktail menu below to gauge just how close we all finally came to a drink named for Organized Konfusion.
