When you put a lime and a pup together you do not get a coconut.  You do, however, get a pup that’s a nut.  I guess if the pup’s name was Coco, you would technically have a Coconut…but I’m getting ahead of myself. Just watch:

 

And even though I’m still not sure what’s happening in this video, I’m fascinated by monkeys in bowler hats…so:

Alright, so you like to drink.  I understand.  And now, after countless visits to the dive bars and the trendy restaurants, you need some amazing recommendations for top grade alcohol?  My friend, I know you so well.  If you keep reading a little lower…keep going you’re almost there…I just posted two delicious recommendations that are currently on our “awesome” list that you must try, they are that good!

What’s that you say?  Oh, you are so welcome!**

Youri Dolgoruki Vodka

Youri Dolgoruki Vodka

This is a Russian vodka, named after Duke Dolgoruki, the founder of Moscow. It is distilled at Moscow’s oldest, largest in the country and most famous distillery, Cristall. Cristall unveiled the premium Youri Dolgoruki vodka in a frosted-glass bottle that displays an image of the famous St. Basil’s Cathedral through a clear window in the packaging.

Distilled four times according to a very rigid secret recipe, the vodka is then blended with natural glacier water which has been pre-treated by a special patented process for the ultimate in purity. Filtration through native Russian birch charcoal completes the process. This unique care and attention to detail results in a vodka known to the world for its distinct character and smoothness on the palate.

For lesser quality vodkas we typically need to mix it with cranberry juice or some other element to suppress the harsh taste.  This vodka however presents a subtle flavor that is not unpleasant. Try it, you’ll be quite surprised.

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey

During one of our many trips to Colorado, Ian’s dad introduced this phenomenal 94 proof, small-batch whiskey that is only distilled in Denver, Colorado. In fact, Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey is the first microdistillery making whiskey in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains as well as one of the first in the country. Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey is the first of a new category known as “Rocky Mountain Straight Whiskey”.

The whiskey is made from a unique four-barley fermented wash that consists of carbon filtered Rocky Mountain water and western barley that is grown in the Northern Rockies. Each bottle is filled by hand and each label is hand written identifying the distiller, batch number, the youngest barrel in the batch and a unique comment.

Stranahan’s is no longer independently owned, as it was sold to Proximo Beverage Corporation. Details on the sale and what the structure of the brand will look like have yet to be released but in the  meantime if you are ever in CO you must remember to pick up a few bottles…if not for you then for us, we need more.  Thanks!

An absolute classic…and how I imagine our household will be once Ian and I have kids (except with 2 kids and NOT 5).

English Tea No.1

Do you like tea?  I like tea!

According to Wikipedia, tea is an aromatic beverage prepared by adding cured leaves to hot water. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world.

A month ago, a friend and I were having a deep discussion about our love for tea.  I’m not big on the flavored teas but prefer black tea due to it’s caffeinated nature and after our chat my friend bought me a box of his favorite tea: Ahmad Tea’s English Tea No.1.

English Tea No.1. is an exclusive blend of teas from Assam, Sri Lanka and Kenya, with a hint of bergamot that produces a very subtle flavor, perfect for your morning brew.

Try it, you’ll like it.
