The Twister (Cocktail and Tornado)

Well, here in Liquor Locust Land, we had a couple of actual tornadoes in the last couple of days. Very unusual in this part of California. We even had the local Walmart make all their customers shelter in place during the alert. Quite a few almond trees were torn apart, companies closed down, and my […]

And, We’re Back, Sort Of

Well, after three days, and the near total destruction of our website (Thank you PacificHost for being a nest of jackassery and incompetence!), we’re back on line… Sort of. All of our posts are currently missing in action,  a year’s worth of booze blogging gone into the maw of the internet gods (and a poor […]

May the 4th Be With You! Stars Wars Day and Death Star Cocktail!

As stoners have 4/20, Nerds (of whom I am a giant one) have May the 4th.  Saying that to anyone just cracks a nerd up.  Hell, I chuckle to myself just thinking about it.  Of course, on such a great day you need a themed drink to get you ready for a marathon watching of […]

Oven Carnitas for the Cinco – Very tasty

Okay, there is a small relationship to alcohol here, but this is a very easy and great recipe for Carnitas.  Instead of having to slow roast the pork for hours and hours, this recipe takes very little work.  It takes time, 2-1/2 to 3 hours start to finish, but mostly that is just having things […]

Drinko de Mayo – The French Margarita Recipe

The Liquor Locusts

The Liquor Locusts

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L. Mencken

The Dangers of Thirst

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K. Jerome
