Imbibers 100

Only 83 out of 100? I have some work to do.

Darcy, from Art of Drink, has gone and created an cocktailian meme. I won’t weigh you down with any more of my spiel, though. Hear it from Darcy:


  1. Copy this list into your blog, with instructions.
  2. Bold all the drinks you’ve imbibed.
  3. Cross out any items that you won’t touch.
  4. Post a comment here and link to your results.


If you don’t have a blog, just count the ones you’ve tried and post the number in the comments section.

Kaiser Penguin is a cocktail blog featuring original recipes, homemade ingredients, classic cocktails, and tiki drinks.

Why on Earth did you name your blog “Kaiser Penguin?”

It is a well-known fact that penguins are members of high society and enjoy fine cocktails. Our very own kaiser penguin would like me to mention that he also enjoys various treats from the sea.
