Liquor Snob Monthly Roundup: January 2006

Baby New Year 2006We made it through the first month of the new year, and while Baby New Year may not look so hot, 2006 is definitely looking up. We've discovered new liquors including one that features a scorpion in the bottle, we've found a new site that will keep you posted on all the freshest bottles as they hit the market, and we've set you up for the best "I Hate Valentine's Day" contest ever. We also reviewed Hendrick's, our new favorite gin, plus the Beerbelly and the Bottle Blaster. What more could you ask for from a month that usually just begins with hangovers and ends with tax forms?

On a sadder note, January also marked the passing of a liquor giant. Let's all take a moment to pour a little on the curb (and by curb we mean your tongue) for Mr. Sidney Frank.

Liquor Snob Monthly Roundup: December 2005

Drunk SantasWe're finally through the holidays, and we're happy to say the entire staff survived our New Year's party. Sure, we played Flip Cup until all hours of the morning, shotgunned beers from bottles and cans, and mixed drinks until our cocktail shaking arm had Carpal Tunnel, and yes, we're still a bit worse for wear, but we made it. As we bid a fond farewell to 2005 we'll leave you with our favorite stories from December, for your reading pleasure. Plus, keep an eye out in the next few days for the Liquor Snobby awards, where we recap all the best stories, products and liquors of 2005.

November Monthly Roundup

Hey, Turkey!Well, November has come and gone, taking Thanksgiving with it. We're going to miss being able to glut on food and drink without anyone batting an eyelash, but at least we don't have to wait too long for another drink-filled holiday season, just around the corner. This month saw us breaking away from vodka reviews a bit to try other liquors, we unearthed some great booze-related reading, and we've unleashed Liquor Snob Intern t-shirts on an unsuspecting populace. How's that for a busy month?

Liquor Snob October Roundup

Cowboy CostumeWell, we made it through another month without being hauled away to detox, so we guess we can mark October in the win column. We found some very cool products this month, reviewed more than our share of great liquor (plus one very excruciating bottle of Screech Rum), and found all sorts of interesting stuff from across the Web. Check out the best of October, and let's hope November is just as exciting.

Liquor Snob Roundup: September 2005

This has been a crazy month for Liquor Snob, what with the fact that we launched this month, and all. The whole thing feels like a month-long bender with no hangover involved.

Liquor Snob Roundup September 2005We've discovered all sorts of cool new bar accessories, from the Quaffer, a shot glass with a built-in chaser, to IceOlate drink coolers and the Gray Kangaroo liquor filter, an amazing contraption that acts as a Brita filter for booze. Plus, we also discovered all sorts of great clothes to open bottles on, including belt buckles, Reef sandals and rings.

On the page we found some great books to curl up and read with a drink, including The Modern Drunkard, as well as two scotch-related treatises, Scotch Whisky: A Liquid History, and the The Instant Expert's Guide to Single Malt Scotch.

We also found an Alcohawk keychain breathalyzer, to keep you out of trouble after a night on the town. Also on the technology front, we were impressed with the iPod Bartender, a brilliant new email-enabled beer coaster, and Kegbot, which isn't really a product, but we think it's the coolest beer-serving contraption out there.

We've also dug up all sorts of cool liquors for you to check out, including Tuaca, an Italian brandy-based liqueur, and Newfoundland's Screech Rum, a hearty liquor that'll make you yell for mercy. It was also a big month in the vodka world, with the announcement of hip Dutch newcomer Bong Vodka coming to the states in November, the slightly less-hip introduction of Ed McMahon Perfect Vodka, and our discovery of Blavod, the world's only black vodka (that we know about). We also stumbled across 3 Vodka, a soy-based spirits that's finally taking soy away from the hippies.

On the news front, we found out this month that people are betting on whether George Bush is drinking again, and we also heard that wine is beating beer as the most-loved adult beverage. We also discovered at Tuaca liqueur has relaunched its website, and is offering an interesting "thank you" to the bartenders of the world.

If you want to wet your whistle into October, we also found some great drink recipes, including beer cocktails, recipes to help you hold onto summer, and our favorite of the month, Dumpster Juice.

Plus, don't forget to add us to your My Yahoo or Google Personalized page, or to Bloglines so you get updated right away whenever we post. We wish you a good buzz tonight and no consequences tomorrow.
