Unless you have been drinking in Kansas City, Missouri odds are you haven't heard of this wonderful cocktail. This twist on a classic "horse's neck" has become very popular regionally over the last twenty years, for good reason. Its crisp and spicy flavors work great in summer as well as winter, and it appeals to a wide variety of drinkers. Additionally using real ginger beer helps soothe the stomach, meaning less rough mornings after a few too many. Now there are several versions of this drink, using blended or rye whiskeys with a various brands of bitters and ginger beer. My favorite version uses Jameson Irish whiskey, Cock and Bull ginger beer, and orange bitters.
To create a Horsefeathers: pour 2 oz of Jameson over ice, add two dashes orange bitters, top with 4 ounces of Cock n' Bull. Stir, and garnish with a lemon if you wish. Easy to make, delicious and classy. With our current special on Jameson, you can make a dozen cocktails for less than $3.50 each. Cheers!

We all know that winter isn’t really over. Sometime soon, the ground will be covered in snow again and we'll put back our sandals for just a little while longer.
But thankfully the breweries that we love don’t let the snow and the cold keep them from celebrating spring. Here are some brews that will get you seriously thinking about putting away the stout and taking out your patio furniture.
We take great pride in the store that we have created. We try not to pat ourselves on the back too often, but man this is a good looking liquor store. However, we can't take all of the credit. Part of the reason our store looks so good is because of all of the art we have. Although, I am not referring to framed pieces from the renaissance era. Instead, I am talking about label art. From beautiful hand painted original pieces to the somewhat disturbing computer generated images on some beer labels, the art that companies use to create their brand is at times quite impressive. Today we walked around the store and picked out 15 of our favorite pieces. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Thanksgiving is happening at your Aunt Muriel’s again this year, and she prides herself on her ability to cook anything from her 1950's edition of Betty Crocker. Here are the strangest recipes you may be forced to pretend to enjoy. These pairings may not save dinner, but at least make Muriel’s cat stories more interesting.
