Bloody Hell: Blood Oranges, Jalapeno, Whiskey and Beer Cocktail

If there is anything that can lure me away from ordering a good beer, it’s a spicy cocktail. The heat in a fresh pepper and some whiskey will get me every time. Once blood orange season rolls around, I’m powerless. Blood oranges have a great flavor, part naval orange, part raspberry and the color is […]

Orange Brewlius

Can I be dramatic for a second? And not in that I Almost Died in Morocco story kind of way, this is more the twisted inner workings of Jackie kind of way. It’ll only take a second. I sleep about as well as homeless prostitute (that’s bad, by the way). If I can fall asleep, it’s […]

Brewed Mary: Beer Bloody Mary

  No offense to vodka, but a Bloody Mary just tastes better with beer. And an IPA is the inarguable choice for a Brewed Mary. I am, for the most part, a live and let live person. Happy to let your differing opinions thrive right along side mine. There are recipe choices that I would […]

Strawberry Beer Lemonade

Summer is almost here. Barbecues, lazy afternoons on the porch swing, long days at the beach, music and card games on the patio until dawn. I realize that a fridge full of craft beer doesn’t always please the masses, but I do want to impart those flavors that are so beautiful anyone can enjoy them, […]
