I like ‘em big, hairy, hot, bold, and boozy–my beers, at least.  (One could hypothesize a correlation between my taste in men and beer—no comment.)  Since dipping my toe–and subsequent rabbit-hole-plunging–into the craft beer world, I’ve always lusted after a ticket to Big Beers, Belgians, and Barleywines.  Thanks to the lovely folks at Denver off […]

Tiki Tuesday at Madison Street to “rock the casbah”

It’s a tiki timeout.  A tiki drink, simply rum and juice (or rums and juices), is the longest-standing drinking trend ever.  What began in the 1930s has spanned over the decades in its retro gloriousness.  You’ve seen ‘em: Scorpion bowls, umbrella drinks, and rum, a second rum, juice, a second juice, and a possibly a […]

One of the coolest things about traditions is that they can either be continued or started.  And this year, I’ve been on a punch kick, serving them at holiday parties or at dinner with family.

No.8: A Glögging Contest

holiday glogg

They don’t call it Heroes Glögg for nothing. And when Mrs. Hunter brings home 3.5 litres of port, brandy, and wine, you don’t ask questions. You roll up your sleeves and dig in. A few times I’ve talked about my mother on Denver off the Wagon.  She’s a fantastic lady.  And she gets a lot […]

It’s The Hooch Life(style)

It’s been a busy fall/winter.  It feels like a whirlwind blew through Denver since even before GABF and the Mad Hatter’s Wonderland has begun.  That may also be due to the numerous cocktails I’ve consumed.  And it’s just the beginning. On Repeal Day, December 5th, The Hooch Life launched, a national online booze and cocktail publication.  While […]
