Most popular: We all have that friend who talks endlessly about the band that is underground and so anti-pop culture, or personally goes on and on about the new "it" chef that they met twice while throwing out culinary terms you've never heard of. Maybe all of us have a little geek in us. What crosses the line, and becomes bad for the beverage you love? Is it endless amounts of latte art pics? Hmm. This article touches on that, and was our post that received the most interest. Check it out for yourself - "Interesting -- "Beer has "geeks," wine has "aficionados." Why are we still called "snobs?" http://ow.ly/S5vz3 via @DailyCoffeeNews."
Bring The Bubbles
More on: Since the beginning we have been advocates of the quality bottles of liqueur that might sit in your home bar for a while. Those are tough investments to make. In return, we've shared recipes for those bottles to help you, and even us, to make good uses of those unique spirits. Here's another one, but this time instead of a cocktail with 4 or more ingredients, and making the kitchen look like a cocktail bartender training ground, it's as easy as adding one of these bottles to a glass of bubbles. Check out these combinations from the FWx article and our post - "Liqueurs to add to sodas and other bubbles: http://ow.ly/S6SPC. Going to put that Crème de Violette to more use."
