Okie Dokie, fair enough…
No Big Deal.
So I posted about the new Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey the morning I found out and I mentioned that I would follow up as soon as I got a bottle. Well, I lied. I was so excited that I went and bought one later that day.
So? It was as fantastic as I thought! Like I mentioned, I’ve had Seagrams & Wild Turkey’s Honey liqueurs, and I like them both. But I don’t know if it’s that I’m biased towards Jack Daniel’s or what but I think it may be my favorite. Now, of course, how can I judge without a side-by-side comparison, but I think the little bit of caramel may have tipped the Tennessee Honey in my favor.
As I also mentioned, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey has a Facebook page and on there they have several recipes. The ones that I tried first was the “Honey Tea”. The ingredients they had up we as such:
1 oz. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey
1/2 oz. cinnamon schnapps
1/2 oz. triple sec
3 oz. unsweetened tea
Combine ingredients in a tall glass over ice, garnish with a lemon twist, and enjoy responsibly!
Now I thought the cinnamon schnapps might be a bit too much, so I left that out. I used Teajava’s unsweetened tea and store brand triple sec.
I loved this. I couldn’t drink too much of it though, just because of the overly sweetness that a liqueur has. But I can’t wait for the next really hot day to give this one another try, maybe this time a “Honey Arnold Palmer”?
The next cocktail that I tried, I was able to squeeze in before the bottle was completely empty was what they called a “Jack & Swarmy”. It went like this:
1.5 oz. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey
1/4 oz. lime juice (one squeeze lime wedge)
4 oz. ginger ale or ginger beer
This one was a bit easier to drink in larger quantities! All I had was some Schweppes Ginger Ale, but I want to try this again with a stronger Ginger Beer.
There’s a few more cocktails that I want to try to make with this stuff, maybe we’ll just save those for future Podcasts. Until then, go get you some!
I don’t know if it’s the old site style or the series of serious pictures, but Beards.org kinda creeps me out. Check it out for yourself, let me know what you think…
They have a Facebook page too.
One way or another, you gotta stand by your bearded brethren.
The idea is simple.
Figure it out yourself.
GOD! Do I have to explain everyt… OK, take a person with a food-type name, Photoshop a beard of that food on ‘em, email them to the admin and you can have a sweet post like mine.
Foodbeard.com, go to it!
I know I’m a couple days late on this one but it needs to be share regardless!
I caught a Facebook post by our buddies at GAFBO (Great American Fierce Beard Organization) *fantastic, huh!, anyway, they posted about this damned ridiculous beard trend and I had to explore a bit more.
Evidently, you shave your beard to look like a God Damned monkey tail on your God Damned face!
Check out their blog and experience this yourself.
I see the next prank for a sleeping Hoover.
One of the only things I miss about not having cable is Conan O’Brien, and lately on Facebook I’ve seen quite a bit of Ads about Will Ferrel threatening Conan that he’s going to shave “every rusty pube” off Conan’s face.
Well, here I am again, late to the party, and holy shit, IT HAPPENED!
I, personally am a fan of the bearded “strike beard” that Conan first grew during the writers strike of ’09 on his Late Night show. Then once the whole Tonight Show bullshit went down, he grew that son of a bitch right back! Now that he has his new show he just stuck with it, until Will Ferrel went will feral (get it?!)
Check out some of these amazing clips from Team COCO’s website of the debacle.
Hold on! Now fans are “Going Smooth” in support of Conan! While I support my Ginger hero, this will not happen. I don’t recommend you follow, but if you have to, film it, post it and email me a link to that junk!
