How many leprechauns does it take to make a good irish whiskey?

From what I’ve seen from my family during the holidays, not enough for sure.

101 Shots


$18.99


Both classic and sophisticated shot recipes like you’ve never seen before. Forget what you think you know about shots from your college years. In 101 Shots, cocktail aficionado Kim Haasarud elevates the lowly shot to heights never seen before in this collection of recipes just as she’s done with her other books including 101 Martinis and 101 Margaritas. For example, the Peach Fuzz Shooter, the Mini Bananas Foster, and the Archangel are made with fresh fruit purees. There are more traditional recipes as well, such as the Belfast Bomber made with Baileys and Irish whiskey dropped into a glass of Guinness, not to mention spicy offerings like the Yellow Sun Sangrita made with smoked paprika and Tabasco, and even savory ones like the Caprese Shooter made with tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper—and vodka, of course. What’s perhaps best about shot recipes is that there is almost no occasion when they’re not fun to serve and enjoy, from the Johnny Appleseed, a perfect drink for fall made with fresh cider, to the Red, White, and Blue, a layered concoction ideal for Independence Day parties. With gelée shot recipes, too, this may be the last party cocktail book you’ll ever need.

 A Welcome Home Menage


A Welcome Home Menage

C J welcomes home UCLA mates Jake and Eddie who’ve been in Africa studying the breasts and sexual habits of tribal women. Upon their return, first order of business, A Welcome Home Menage!“Like many of my college friends, we simply went our separate ways after graduation. I did hear that Ed and Jake went down to Africa. Ed wanted to study the breasts of tribal women. Jake wanted to study their sexual habits. Their ultimate goal was to teach anthropology. Using their African studies as their doctoral thesis. When I heard this, I laughed aloud, as it did seem like something that the two of them would actually do. I took it all in with a cup of Irish whiskey and forgot about them. Then, yesterday, I was out shopping in a Hallmark gift shop when my cell phone began to vibrate. To my surprise, it was Edward!”CJ and her friends waste no time in getting together and having a ménage a trois to bring fantasies to life!Excerpt:While attending UCLA, I made many cool friends. Two of them, Edward and Jake, dropped out of sight right after graduation. They were braincases, always studying, always on the Dean’s List, and always seducing the good-looking chicks.Edward had professed that he loved me, on several occasions. Then, Eddy would use the same lines on another chick, right in front of me, especially when he was three sheets to the wind, which means, in sailing jargon, drunk as a skunk. He had the propensity to make one love him with immediacy. I think it was his blue eyes and the way they sparkled when he smiled. Ed is simply a charmer. He always had money and knew how to treat, without being obnoxious. He was a known chick magnet and, I honestly believe, he didn’t even know it.Jacob, Eddie’s roommate, better known as Jake, was the consummate romantic. There was always an intellectual girl hanging on his arm. These two, Ed and Jake, were always together. They were just happy guys and always fun to be around.Once, as a junior, I passed out at a wet and wild football party (I

Excerpt: Sir William Rowan Hamilton (4 August 1805 2 September 1865) was an Irish physicist, astronomer, and mathematician, who made important contributions to classical mechanics, optics, and algebra. His studies of mechanical and optical systems led him to discover new mathematical concepts and techniques. His greatest contribution is perhaps the reformulation of Newtonian mechanics, now called Hamiltonian mechanics. This work has proven central to the modern study of classical field theories such as electromagnetism, and to the development of quantum mechanics. In mathematics, he is perhaps best known as the inventor of quaternions. Hamilton is said to have shown immense talent at a very early age, prompting astronomer Bishop Dr. John Brinkley to remark in 1823 of Hamilton at the age of eighteen: This young man, I do not say will be, but is, the first mathematician of his age. William Rowan Hamilton’s scientific career included the study of geometrical optics, classical mechanics, adaptation of dynamic methods in optical systems, applying quaternion and vector methods to problems in mechanics and in geometry, development of theories of conjugat.

The Brown-Forman Corporation owns the Southern Comfort brand. Southern ComfortSouthern Comfort was first produced by Irish bartender Martin Wilkes Heron (18501920), the son of a boat-builder. Legend says it was created and sold at McCauleys Tavern at the corner of Richard and St. Peter Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. However, St. Peter Street and Richard Street do not intersect, though Richard Street does intersect with S. Peters Street in the Lower Garden District near the Mississippi River. Heron moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1889, patented his creation, and began selling it in sealed bottles with the slogan “None Genuine But Mine” and “Two per customer. No Gentleman would ask for more.” Southern Comfort won the gold medal at the 1904 World’s. More:

Used – Images of the Irish in political cartoons underwent a gradual but unmistakable change between the 1840s and the turn of the century. Depicted at first as harmless, whiskey-drinking peasants, Irishmen increasingly were represented – especially after the rise of the Fenian movement in the 1860s – as apelike monsters menacing law, order, and middle-class values. Showing that cartoons in London, Dublin, and New York newspapers tapped into a preexisting “cultural aquifer” of assumptions about
