SDN Apple Wrap-Up

Thursday Drink Night - two lovely people sharing drink and conversation over the net

Upcoming TDN – Repeal Day!

Repeal Day is on the horizon, so the theme this week is classic cocktails. No Manhattans or Aviations though, we’ll be making up new creations using classic ingredients. So if you’re out of gin and vermouth, hop to it. Might I also suggest: maraschino liqueur, lemons, limes, rye whiskey, old tom gin, brandy, scotch, eggs, absinthe, Jamaican rum… not to be specific or anything.

Come chat with us!

Thanksgiving dripped with juicy excitement and left us immovable, slothful heaps, so we pushed last week’s TDN to Saturday, making for the first every Saturday Drink Night. Though we’re returning to our regularly scheduled programming this week, we all had a blast over the weekend. Apfelkorn was the prized ingredient of the night, though not the only apple spirit to get some use.

Check out the full list of cocktails created by our lusty crew, or take a gander at the following highlights:

[tiare] The jwray has a very special flavor, like kerosene, you can’t sub it.

[rumdood] The Tiare action figure comes with 159 different garnish accessories.

[SeanMike] The SeanMike action figure would have a cocktail shaker with a bottle of Miller Lite hidden in it.

[Dr. Bamboo] The PA liquor store playset would contain no inventory whatsoever and a “Clueless Employee” figure that has 37 different voice-activated excuses as to why they can’t get the booze you want.

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.
