Cranberry Clove Infused Gin

It’s Fermented Friday, and if this doesn’t hit the spot, I don’t know what will! Though I do happen to be a Gin fan.

Trouble Brewing

CC Jar

When I drink in the afternoon, it is merely for journalistic integrity and my love for you, dear reader.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I treated myself to making two special double ingredient infusions for my recent birthday. Part Two was this Cranberry Clove Infused Gin experiment, inspired by a birthday drink with a dear friend last month from the winter 2014 mix and match Cocktail Element Menu at Salt in Boulder, Colorado. If you’re ever on the Pearl Street Mall, stop in for Happy Hour. You won’t be disappointed.

Cranberry Clove Infused Gin


  • 750 ml of gin
  • One 15 oz can of whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 4 whole cloves


Deposit the contents of the can of cranberry into a one quart infusion jar. Use only WHOLE BERRY. Break it up a bit with a spoon. Fill the remainder of the jar with gin…

Winos make me thirsty

In an effort to expand my blog-reading, I have been trying to stumble into people with a more like-minded blog: Wine drinkers. All it’s making me want to do is go to the store and get ten bottles of red wine and just down them all. Don’t get me wrong, I love reading about what my fellow winos are up to and their thoughts, but it’s enough to drive this wino to drink….where’s the donate button to get me some wine?!

Penn State Bribing Bars Not To Serve Booze On State Patty’s Day

Goodness me! What is the world coming to when universities are not trusting their students to be responsible? Granted, students probably are going to celebrate the day by enjoying an adult beverage or two, but the meat of it is that they are just that – adults. Why is it up to the Universities to butt in?

NY City Students Defend Poor School With … What Else ? Poorly Written Letters

Quite insightful


Teens Defend ‘Fail Factory’ School In Error-Filled Letters

Teens defend ‘fail factory’ school in error-filled letters

” Earlier this month, The Post exposed a scheme at Manhattan’s Murry Bergtraum HS for Business Careers in which failing students could get full credit without attending class, but instead watch video lessons and take tests online. One social-studies teacher had a roster of 475 students in all grades and subjects.

  Red-faced administrators encouraged a student letter-writing campaign to attack The Post and defend its “blended learning” program. Eighteen kids e-mailed to argue that their alma mater got a bad rap.

  Almost every letter was filled with spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.

  A junior wrote: “What do you get of giving false accusations im one of the students that has blended learning I had a course of English and I passed and and it helped a lot you’re a reported your support to get truth information other than starting…

What Will Kill Your Mojo?

I was on a roll! I was pumping out entries and scheduling them and writing over on this other site over here, and doing a little bit of work on this project over there and then BAM! I clicked the wrong button, closed my browser, and lost half an hour’s worth of work. No way of getting it back. It wasn’t saved to anything.

I for the most part knew what I had said, but my gotta write gotta write Gotta Write! Mojo is gone. I don’t have the overflow of ideas and thought that need to be typed out and written down. 

I feel deflated. 

What do I do? What do you do? Mojo Lost.
