What do we have here?

I drink.  You drink.  We all drink.  I just drink better than you.  Don’t take that as a personal affront.  It’s just the truth.  Yes, you can throw down $26,000 for a bottle of  a Montrachet 1978 from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti or buy Louis XIII Pearl for a mere $28,000 (if you’re lucky), but few have the intestinal fortitude to do so.  It’s okay.  I’m here to help.  I will consume it all: near, far, and wide in order to sacrifice my liver — and occasionally my palate — so that you will find exactly what you need, how to make it, and where to get it when your dipsomania strikes.

It’s finally time that there be a place of intelligence, wit, and perhaps a bit of hubris where kindred spirits can come to talk about the subtle complexities of elderflower liquor and realize that the best limoncello in the United States is homemade at my favorite watering hole in New Jersey.  We’ll examine why Rye is making a resurgence and why expensive vodka is (almost) always a waste of money.  Most importantly, I will seek out and discover hidden treasures: the vineyards, bar chefs and brewers who have the chops to make the best wines, cocktails, and beers available in North America.

So, sit back, enjoy, and for the love of all that is good, have a drink.
