Irish Spirit Takes ‘Dublin’s Own’ DWD Whiskey Back to the USA

At the ripe young age of 20, I traveled with a group of friends to Dublin. I was studying abroad at Cambridge University and a weekend trip to Ireland was no big deal. I went on a whim and with little idea of what I would find. What I found was unexpected… humor. Dubliners are quite a humorous group of people and their jovial attitudes are infectious. I was a bit taken aback by this constant stream of humor given that the city fully embraces and commemorates their violent history of internal strife, oppression, and economic struggle. At first I …

The Earl’s Tea

As the leaves change color and the wind gets a chill, it is time to bring out your favorite warming items. Now most people envision cozy wool socks, a flannel blanket, blazing fire, and a cup of something hot to hug your soul. I will admit, that’s pretty much my perfect Autumn list… but with one tiny change. Alcohol. I’m not saying you should have a glass of booze in lieu of a steamy mug of warm goodness. No. I’m saying pour some libations in that mug and life will be a whole lot warmer. Take for instance today’s recipe. The first …
