I'm always down to try a new cocktail recipe. But, it can be a pretty big investment to go in for a whole bottle of flavored vodka or special liqueur when you're not even sure if you like the drink in the first place. And, often, many of them taste like candy, artificial extracts, or weird chemicals.

So, make your own. They're much less expensive, taste way better, and you can make as little or as much as you want. With all the fresh summer produce coming to the markets, there's every reason to give it a shot.   … read more

Sure, you may know you're in a dive by the general smell and look at the place, but it'll take a round or two to know whether you're in a great dive.   … read more
