Super Bowl XLVII Drinking Game

Today in New Orleans the San Francisco 49ers meet the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.

Most of us will be rooting with creative food & drink.

So what not play a game during a time out? A drinking game.

We like to keep it simple here at Drink of the Week, so each take one shot (beer, booze, soda, water your choice!) at each of the following:

Super Bowl Party Eats

The Super Bowl is a great excuse to indulge in a little gluttony. I mean most of us have been pretty good since the beginning of the New Year. Why not have a great time on Super Bowl Sunday.

A Toast to Bargain Wines – Literary Monday

I recently picked up a copy of George Taber's book A Toast to Bargain Wines. I couldn't wait to read the book given that I am a big fan of George Tabor's Judgment of Paris book, as well as budget wine. This was a book that combined the two of them. And, I appreciated the fact that Mr. Tabor was going to champion "budget wines" or "bargain wines" as he called them.

The Curious World of Wine – Literary Monday

This week's Literary Monday pick is a book filled with fun facts about wine. Most interestingly, the book is authored by Dr. Vine. Sorry, I just couldn't resist - a book on wine authored by Vine.

Skinnytinis – Literary Monday

Drinking on a diet isn't easy. Unfortunately, alcohol can pack a caloric punch. Drinks loaded up with shots are also loaded up with calories. Add in mixers and you can drink a whole meal of calories in one or two drinks. Lower in alcohol, beer, wine and cider don't pack quite the calorie punch that the hard stuff and cocktails can. But, I know that sometimes, all you really want is a cocktail. Luckily, there is a book for you - Skinnytinis - is all about the cocktails at half the calories.

D’usse Cognac VSOP Review

D’usse Cognac VSOP is the lastest offering from Bacardi’s Chateau de Cognac, the Cognac house that produces Baron Otard.  This is not your ordinary bottle of Cognac.  It’s producers have gone for a completely different look on the bottle.  It’s a bit gothic, a bit midieval with a double cross on a squat bottle with a glass topper.  It looks pretty bad-ass for a Cognac.  I guess that this is your granddad’s Cognac.  Oh, and … Read more

Prosecco For The New Year

The New Year is upon us! It's time to celebrate. But, if you are like us, you need to celebrate without breaking the budget! We have solved this problem by spending most New Year's Eves with our friends and sticking with affordable booze and food that we potluck. We end up with everything we love for the New Year - good friends, good food and good booze. For me, an essential component of the evening is also good bubbly! While I love Champagne, I generally find myself reaching for something that doesn't break the bank. One of those bottles that I reach for is Prosecco, which is a great party pleaser that doesn't break the bank.
