Well, we're through June once again, and you know what that means...summer's finally here. That means we have a couple months of vacations, relaxing, and having a nice drink outside. As we look forward to the summer, we also offer you a chance to look back at what we did in June, including information on new absinthes making their way to America, a look at the Bierstick, and a video recipe for a little drink called the "Liquid Panty Dropper." Oh, behave.

We had a lot happen in April, including a whirlwind trip to Brazil...where we didn't even drink any Cachaca. Long story. But nevertheless, we've scoured the Web to find the coolest drinking news and products going, and wrapped them up for you in a neat little package. You're welcome.
One thing we didn't get to do in April was a chance to review the cocktail candles that were sent to us by Gwen at Intoxicated Zodiac, or the Hot D Wake Up Juice that's sitting on our shelf. Our bad. We'll take care of them post haste. But enough dwelling on what we didn't cover - see everything we covered in April after the jump.

We were going to post today with a sick and evil April Fool's Day prank, but we decided we'd go easy on you this year, unlike a couple years ago. You can thank us later - right now, it's time to busy yourself checking out what you might have missed last month.
From our coverage of two very different but equally intriguing hangover remedies, right on through the drinking advice from an alcoholic cartoon dog, we had a whole lot of fun in March. Check out the shenanigans and our own version of March Madness after the jump.

Here's the thing...November should've been all about Thanksgiving. We should've been thinking only about chugging Wild Turkey and figuring out where to sleep off a tryptophan coma. But, just like every year, Christmas has started nudging its way into the land of the Pilgrims. Half the time we feel like Nightmare Before Christmas but Jack chose a different door.
However, in the spirit of the season, we chugged Wild Turkey and created our 2007 Gift Guide. So, everybody wins! Read on for the rest of the happenings from the land of Liquor Snob Turkey Day.

October was another big month for us, from the beginning when our Editor in Chief celebrated a big old birthday, to the end when we tricked and treated the hell out of ourselves. We were quoted in the Washington Times, we tried out a great new bottle opener, discovered Baijiu, and we fell head over heels in love with a ginger liqueur that made our toes curl.
It really doesn't get much better than that, does it? Read on for the full list of everything that happened to us in the course of this month.

Another summer has come and gone, but instead of getting depressed we soldiered on and found all sorts of cool, booze-related stuff in September. We covered a 90 mile distillery tour in the South, lamented the passing of Michael Jackson, discovered the Portopong, and marveled while some mad geniuses made Jell-O shots out of everything but the kitchen sink. It was a good month, really...read on to find a roundup of everything we covered, and we'll be over here trying to outdo ourselves in October.

We really kicked off June with a bang - what with the kegerator giveaway and all, and we really like to think we kept up our intensity. That's what we tell ourselves anyway. We uncovered some great booze to review, found a kickass Mojito recipe, and found out about new and legal absinthes on their way to the U.S. How's that grab you?
Read on to peruse this month's goods, but before you do go on and whip up a an iPhone martini to take the edge off.

As we turn around and bid farewell to May, we're full of a lot of things - remorse, regret, cinco de mayo margaritas. But we have a whole lot to look forward to as well - cookouts, beer, drinks by the pool, and cocktails.
Take a look at all the cool junk we found during May, including multiple liquor reviews, the Beer Advocate Top 100 beers, a sangrita recipe that's good all year round, and the first post-ban absinthe that's available legally here in the states. How can you go wrong?

There's nothing that gets you in the mood to drink like a resurrection, so April has always held a fond spot in our hearts. Another reason for our fondness of this April was the fact that it gave us the chance to hope it was going to stop raining everyfreakinday in May. We can dream, can't we? Oh, and we also discovered a great new vodka (Cirrus), a fantastic TV show (Three Sheets), and learned about how Strawberry Daiquiris might help stave off the Big C. What a month!
Read on for the stories.

Another March come and gone, and with it the grueling day of amateur drinking and green beer, St. Patrick's Day. We've made it through yet another St. Patty's, and with only a few scars and bruises to show for it, so we've rounded up all the stories from March. There are even a few that involve green - we reviewed multiple kinds of absinthe, threw together some cocktail recipes to make you say "Erin Go Brae." Plus, we reviewed multiple products including the Bongxedo, some Gins and some Cachacas.
So sally forth, dear reader, to plumb the depths of what March had to offer us, and raise a toast to our fallen compatriots who were hauled away to the drunk tank or worse.
