Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?
For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Gone are the days of strolling into that lonely saloon through the double swinging doors like the cowboy you are. The clack of your boots on the hardwood floor and the cling of your spurs right behind you with every step you take toward the long bar where the old grizzled bartender with a killer moustache stands with a no-name bottle of whiskey. No words are spoken as you stare down the bar-keep. He pulls a dirty shot glass from under the bar and pours a single shot, walk away and leaves the bottle... I really must stop watching Old Westerns before bed. (side note: "Tombstone" is the best western of all time!) Now in order to order a shot you have to have an entirely new vernacular. There are more adjectives and pronouns even verbs to the names of some of these drinks.
As you may have read in past postings I am not a huge fan of guys ordering anything more than one word (Jack, Jim, Jonny, etc.) however like the old song says "the times they are a changing." So I guess if you can't beat them, join them. One of my favorite things to do when it comes to shot time is make concoctions that taste like existing treats. The reaction is always the same for someone that has never tried them. They can't believe that it tastes like the existing treat. All the flavor of the treat with half open the calories and sealed with a nice little buzz. So here is a small group of shots that taste like existing no-alcoholic treats. Enjoy!
Breakfast Shots... Shake all of these over ice and strain to make the most important meal of the day!
3 Olives Loopy Vodka
Rim the glass with light sugar
+ Tastes just like the milk in the bottom of the Fruit Loops cereal bowl
Irish Cream Liqueur
Sprinkle top with powdered sugar
+ Just like Mom use to make only drunker.
Rim the glass with a little Nutella
Coockoo for Cocoa Puffs
Desserts!Cookies, cake, candy and pie. Don't forget to chase these with a nice glass of milk, or another shot.
Rim the glass with cinnamon sugar
Lemon Meringue Pie

Whipped Cream Vodka
Shake over ice and strain.
Rim glass first with icing and then dip in rainbow sprinkles

Drop a raisin in the bottom for a garnish
+ Grandma never made her cookies like this. Or did she? She was always pretty happy to see you or anyone else for that matter.
Rim the glass with cream cheese frosting
Top with whipped cream and carrot shavings
+ Tasty and improves your vision. Or is it makes you want to hump like a bunny? Either way it's a party!
Garnish with a slice of strawberry

I am sure you all have a few more to add so if you do let me have them! In the meantime enjoy...
