No Explanation Needed…

One Bourbon

One Scotch

One Beer

In that order… PERIOD!

Enjoy this iconic American old-school jam by George Thorogood.

Feelin’ kinda mellow with this mix.

Dumped the Scotch in the beer, made myself a Boilermaker (ain’t had one in years)!

And as always, drink responsibly, y’all!

Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix, AZ!

One of our first trips after we were settled in “The Valley of The Sun”, my wife and I was hungry and was in need of some good grub. Lo and behold, we stumbled across Little Miss BBQ not too far from our hotel, and long story short, we was not disappointed!

As much as I want to add pics into this blog, most of them speak for themselves whereas the following image speaks extremely loud volumes:

One big sweet roll, smoked turkey, smoked brisket, sliced pickles, spiced potato salad, and jalapeño cheddar grits! My only complaint was I thought they were being stingy with the grits, IJS, but in all fairness, they were slap-yo-mama-up-and-down-and-sideways delicious! My wife had her favourite, RIBS!

And with the exact same sides.

And now… Some pics of where the magic happens..

And BTW, some spices for one’s tastes (I tried all of ’em, and they were good, too)!

And one bonus feature: for years I was wondering what the purpose of that hole in the tab of a pop can was for, thanks to social media I was able to find out…

And some water to slate your thirst in that nice and hot Arizona sun…

And you have the option to either dine indoors…

…or out!

And one other thing, you can expect to see some classic Americana as you approach this very popular diner. Case it point:

And seeing that we’d gotten here early, it wasn’t until after we left that the lines were forming on the outside. I’m surprised this place hasn’t been on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives yet!

But it could happen (and it should, too)!

End of Summer (or Summer’s Ended, Whatever U Wish 2 Call It)!

What better way to end the Summer season than this little tropical concoction that’ll make Jimmy Buffett smile. I call it Summer’s End, more than likely Webtender has a mix similar to this, but if it doesn’t, here’s the ingredients, hope you like ’em!

First, you’re gonna need two shakers:

Shaker #1:

2 oz. Rum

2 oz. Vodka

2 oz. Gin

Chopped strawberries and orange wedges inside.

Shaker #2:

2 oz. Orange Juice

2-3 oz. Cranberry Juice

One orange slice for garnishment.

Shake both shakers simultaneously and pour both into a tall glass. Enjoy!

Makes 1-2 servings.

And remember to drink responsibly as always!

Martini Infusion Mix

Something that was inspired by both the Tipsy Bartender as well as a recent gathering I attended in my old neighbourhood, my wife and I recently bought some watermelon wedges and immediately I thought about the last gathering I was invited to where one of my young friends had a vodka-infused watermelon, and let’s just say that we were flying high that night, but it was all in good fun!

But I digress…

I told my wife that I wanted to take my wedge and make an infuser…

So without further adieu, here it is!

I pretty much took one of my mini food tubs and cut up my watermelon wedge and a white peach and dumped both gin and vodka into the tub along with the diced fruits, and let it sit in the freezer for a few hours, and I later on added some OJ and Cranberry (both 100%), and pretty much used a ladle to pour the gin-vodka infused fruits with liquor and used the shaker to pour the juices into a cocktail glass.

And a top view of how the martini mix looks!

It turned out very well, it was delicious to say the least! If you’re a diabetic, be very careful, I’m just sayin’! This thing is loaded with sugar!

Enjoy, and remember to drink responsibly, and don’t drink and drive!
