Dry Drunk: The Cocktails of Thad Vogler at Beretta

Glossy Booze

From the stack of magazines in my apartment:

Details (April) has a story by Rob Willey on the Mint Julep, with possibly the ugliest looking mint julep photo ever printed.

Playboy (April) reports that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il spends $700,000 a year on Hennessey cognac. But he still probably doesn't make the best spokesmodel.

Also, they have a story by Dan Dunn on Savanna Samson's wine picks, including wine to match your favorite porn.

Esquire's David Wondrich (May) discusses the Whiskeyburger, a molecular mixology drink that tastes like a burger, complete with tomato syrup, ground chuck-infused whiskey, and mustard bitters. They say the recipe will be online, but it appears that's a lie, lie, lie.

In 7X7 (a San Francisco magazine, April) Jordan MmmKay talks about Italian varietals by way of California, and homemade limoncello.

Best Life (April) has a small article on boutique tonic water (by me!)

Sunset Magazine (April) has a story on cult Cabernets.

Men's Vogue writer Lawrence Osbourne discusses Pompeii's wine industry.

Marcia of Tablehopper writes about barstool eating in San Francisco Magazine. (That is, eating at barstools, not eating barstools.) Also, a mention of Cantina's Caribbean Sangria.
