Thirsty Thursday

Folklore suggests that the mythical chupacabra was first seen in Puerto Rico, though it’s recently become evident that Texans, as with many things, seem to think the beast sprang from the loins of the Lone Star state, and that chupacabra here are the biggest and baddest on the planet. Real or not, like Bigfoot (or […]

From the “damn we should have served these for Cinco de Mayo file” comes this Mojito del Sol (By the Pitcher) from Al “just south of Miami”. “…I meant to send this to you guys before Cinco de Mayo as it’s become our standard pitcher to share with friends as we salute the bravery of […]

Another good one this week from new Chi Wulff compadre Raul in Albuquerque – a simple recipe for a pitcher of Sangrita – a danged tempting marriage of Sangria and the long-time favorite Margarita. “…I don’t know where my wife and I found first discovered this; she thinks it was a Ninfa’s when we were […]

When in doubt always go to the highest absolute authority possible when pursing an authentic recipe; today we offer the Ginger Julep stolen unashamedly right […]

This past week found me along the Texas coast fetching Jess and doing a bit of property research for some friends and future business colleagues. The bay waters around Rockport looked stunning, especially considering how flooding rains around Houston and Galveston had turned the nearby bays and surf into chocolate milk up there. Alas, we […]

Another interesting adult beverage recipe came in over the transom this week from part-time guide (and full-time fire fighter) Les in Salt Lake City – …My wife just got back from a trip with girlfriends to Jamaica and brought this back with her, along with a bottle of Appleton Estate’s Reserve Rum. This was the […]

Here’s an adult beverage for tax week that’s named after something we all wish we had more of – The Witty Comeback. Personally I specialize in witty comebacks formulated hours if not days after a particular situation or encounter demanded such a retort, and I have to modestly admit I can be damned crafty with […]

Friend, sometimes mentor, and inveterate kitchen tinkerer Ed has been pestering the daylights out of us lately to make him a batch or two of orange bitters. It seems Ed has a new favorite adult beverage to ‘put on the dog’ for company as he calls it – the rest of us would probably say […]

Our buddy Eric H., Laguna Madre fly fishing friend and occasional business consultant down in the Rio Grand Valley of Texas, had the temerity to email this week and complain about how warm it had been of late. I reminded him that much of the country has spent at least part of the past week […]

Now and again some of life’s most interesting offerings seemingly drop right into your lap. Such was the case with this Coffee Margarita recipe fired in a few weeks ago by Jack P. from Driggs (that’s Driggs, Idaho for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure) – …knowing your penchant for tequila and mezcal, […]

And a very merry St. Patrick’s Day 2016 to all our Chi Wulff compadres wandering various cricks, creeks, streams, rivers, bayous, flats, bays, gulfs, seas and oceans today. In keeping with the spirit of the day, last weekend found me wandering the aisles of one of our local purveyors of wine and adult beverages. Lo […]

As we all March into spring, and with St. Patrick’s day just one week away (from today), I’ve been digging around for some appropriately themed adult beverages to help us one and all celebrate the season. Around our camp we’ve finally awoken to the magic that is cold-brewed coffee; it’s insanely easy to make and […]

On a week where I’ve gone 10 rounds with the flu from hell, it was nice to get yet another keeper cocktail suggestion from friend EH in South Texas. He’s been taunting the magical powers of Ruby Red grapefruit for the past several months, while basking – and fly fishing- in the almost subtropical temperatures […]

EH’s grapefruit inspired cocktails we’ve shared over the past few months have resonated out there this winter. This one rolled in late last week from Erik in New Orleans – My wife came home from seeing family in San Francisco and brought this little gem of a cocktail recipe along – the Trouble in Paradise. […]

Another winner from our South Texas based, grapefruit loving, redfish chasing and catching machine EH. …from our chat I know you guys have been enjoying some of the grapefruit based cocktails we’ve talked about this season. It’s helped that the Ruby Reds have been danged good so far. Here’s another one for you guys to […]
