What we drank this week (and how we felt about it), in no particular order.
1. House made cocktails for our drink segment on KCTV5's Better Kansas City: Sriracha Bloody Mary using Tito's vodka and the usual suspects. Bacon and a lemon wheel for garnish! Spicy Sammies (new take on a Mexican Michelada): Tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, Sriracha sauce, jalapenos and a spicy (but citrusy) Samuel Adams Winter Lager. garnished with a jalapeno and a lemon! Red beers never tasted so good! - Michael
2. Having my sis in town made exploratory beverage consumption even more fun than usual, and sipping two smooth Cappuccinos with Novo espresso at Little Bird Bakery while watching the quiet bustle of Old Town Square made for a perfect morning. - Sadie
3. Tasty mince pie & walnut bitters shot from Coffee Division, plus Bauhaus. - Emily
4. Making good use of the recent Oklahoma beers I brought back, and enjoyed Marshall's This Machine IPA, Anthem Brewing Arjuna, and a bomber of Black Mesa's Alexander Supertramp. All completely different, but nice drinking beers ranging from 6% to 10% in ABV. - Jason
5. 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Matt Parish (Napa Valley): Traditional Cab flavor with ribbons of oak and vanilla along the middle! Good, soft tannins to hold up to meats and cheeses while catching up on Bravo's Top Chef! ~ Michael
6. A flight like no other at Nuance Chocolate in Fort Collins left me starry eyed and filled with chocolatey wanderlust - the places these little nuggets of goodness come from need to be traveled to and tasted. - Sadie
7. Single origin hot chocolate from Good Coffee PDX & Cocanu for the perfect Saturday morning kickoff. - Emily
8. I started a lot of my mornings after getting a few hours of work in first by making a Chemex or Aeropress of Peace Coffee's Ethiopia Yirg., part of their Alchemy Series. - Jason
9. A trip to Equinox Brewing for a flight was highlighted by the Black Hole Sun Black Ale - a "remixed" Sunrise Golden Ale with debittered black malt and a whole lot of "mmmm." - Sadie
10. I really tapped into the seasonal cocktail list at Manifesto and The Rieger on Friday night with Michael and friends. My favorite had to be the Autumn Sweater (although we are deep into winter), which was made with Smoked Four Roses Bourbon, honey-cinnamon, lemon, Laphroig Quarter Cask Scotch. - Jason
