Kaiser Penguin Nominated by Saveur for Best Cocktail Blog of 2011

Apparently not updating your blog wins you nominations!

Vote for Kaiser Penguin

I couldn’t think of another two gentlemen I’d rather be crouched in a dark corner with than Jeffrey Morgenthaler and Camper English. I’m also confident no one has ever typed that sentence in the history of the human race…

Winning a popularity contest against Morgenblogger is a moot but amusing challenge, but if you’re so inclined, go vote for Kaiser Penguin!

And yes, they have an annoying sign-up page before you can vote. As incentive, if you do go vote, comment and say you did and I’ll give away a bottle of Falernum JWray, made in a rotovap. With which you could make the following recipe:

Rotovapped Falernum and Ting

  • 2oz 120 proof falernum-“infused” JWray
  • 4oz Ting

Combine in a tall glass, drink quickly, repeat vigorously.

    Congratulations! I can’t think of a more deserving winner.

  2. Chris W.No Gravatar says:

    I voted. And I may have even voted for you!

  3. RickNo Gravatar says:

    Dave – exactly. Though we’re using a lab model. Expect a post soon on rotovapping :)

  4. MichaelNo Gravatar says:

    I voted for you! Morgenblogger shouldn’t win as his head is large enough already. And he doesn’t do nearly enough tiki or rum related things. ;)

  5. buttersNo Gravatar says:

    I voted for you! Good luck!

  6. BobNo Gravatar says:

    I voted Rick. Good Luck.

  7. andrew h.No Gravatar says:

    Rick, count me as voted too! Some of the other great nominees in other categories include Food Curated and Cooking Issues.

    Best of Luck!

  8. NannyOggNo Gravatar says:

    Just for you, i dragged myself through the signing-up process, and voted! That’s all folks…

  9. ChrisNo Gravatar says:

    Just voted. For your blog, that is.

  10. DaveNo Gravatar says:

    I voted for KP. And as for that guy from Portland, last I checked he’s blogging at the rate of one post every 3 or 4 months. And I think rotovapping beats barrel-aging cocktails in the how geek can you go contest. ;)

  11. JonNo Gravatar says:

    I would vote as so I’d have a chance to win that falernum jwray…but like the beachbum berry remixed contest, rick probably won’t pick a winner.

  12. RickNo Gravatar says:

    Jon – you’ve seen through my elaborate ruse! Have no fear, a winner shall be declared and rotovapped joy delivered.

  13. When he says it will be delivered, he means to himself as he thinks, “Was I supposed to do something with this?”

  14. I just voted for you—I hope you win! I enjoyed looking through categories actually; it was interesting.

  15. SusieNo Gravatar says:

    I just voted for you too. Good luck.

  16. TiareNo Gravatar says:

    Voted of course! you so deserve it me thinks!

  17. TiareNo Gravatar says:

    “Rotovapped Falernum and Ting”?? nobody but you could come up with such a Ting! (pun intened) please!! bring one for Tales so i can try it!

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.
