The Beer Trappe

Every now and then it’s good to get out of the Queen City and explore the drinking culture in further flung regions of this great country. At just about a 90 minute drive away, the lovely college town of Lexington makes a great day trip. Usually if I’m going to Lexington I’m thinking...

Apple Pie a la Mode Moonshine

On our Halloween Special, Episode 45, Charlie and I shared the fall-themed drink that I made for our Halloween block party. It turned out great and I am thinking of making something similar to give out for Christmas presents this year. If you want to drink along at home here is the recipe for it....

Friday Night Fun

Friday afternoon is a special time of the week. It can either be the longest few hours of the week or it can be a magical time when you are planning outfits, creating playlists, and anticipating the fun you will be having in a few hours. It’s been a long time since I left work upbeat and excited for...

Horse’s Neck Cocktail

  In Episode 41 Charlie and I share our recent trip to the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar where, in addition to sampling a nice selection of rye and bourbon whiskey, I also tried a classic bourbon cocktail. The Horse’s Neck cocktail dates back to at least the 1890’s when it was more typically...

Dancing Through the Tears

Last Saturday Doctor Bombay and the Atomic Bachelor Pad were headlining the official Cincinnati Comic Expo after-party over at Mainstay’s. It was supposed to be the triumphant return of Ginny Tonic. I haven’t danced with Doctor Bombay since April and I have missed it so much. Being able to call...

Cincinnatus Red by Vinoklet Winery

  This week on Episode 38 of The Charlie Tonic Hour you can hear all about my trip to Vinoklet Winery for their annual Art and Wine Festival (and if you can’t wait for that you can read about it on Queen City Drinks.) Despite my trepidations about Ohio wines, I had a very enjoyable afternoon with...

Drink Your Dessert

This post first appeared on Queen City Drinks but this week Charlie and I did a dessert and beer pairing for Episode 36 so I thought it would be appropriate for this week as well. Enjoy! Money and calorie constraints suck. As much as we’d love to be able to spend and eat all we want without...

Weekend Recommendations

Afternoon Social at the Howard Steamboat Museum: The Corn Island Steampunk Society is pleased to announce that they are hosting their first official event since forming as a group, Saturday August 25th at the Howard Steamboat Museum in Jeffersonville, IN. Although the leaders of Corn Island have been...

Make Your Own Bärenjäger

Charlie and I tried some Bärenjäger for Episode 35 of The Charlie Tonic Hour. We didn’t have a recipe to make with it, and the impromptu Bärenjäger/Tequila shooter I created was swiftly vetoed (called the Honey Fire by Charlie), so I thought I would be without a drinks recipe for the week. But that...

Robot Invades Mars!

  On Episode 35 of Charlie Tonic, Charlie and I geek out over the Mars Curiosity Rover and other amazing space facts. No matter how cynical and jaded our society has become, we can’t be too far gone if we can take the time to pause as a nation and celebrate landing a robot on Mars. The color...

Old Fitzgerald Bourbon

Although I may have been a bit spoiled lately, with being able to get ahold of some bottles of Angel’s Envy and Four Roses Small Batch and all, but that doesn’t mean I can afford to drink like that everyday. For a weekend trip to Tennessee lately that Charlie and I took recently we decided to...

Weekend Recommendations

It’s another sad and lonely weekend without Ginny or Charlie on the events scene but don’t let that stop you from having fun. Airship Passepartout’s Monthly Gathering: Airship Passepartout in Dayton has been gathering steam at a remarkable rate. This summer they have officially secured a...

Where have you traveled with your friends?

There is a fun little website called Proust that helps you build your own autobiography by asking interesting questions and letting you answer, add pictures and share with friends. I thought it would be a fun thing to take some of those questions and answer them with you here from time to time. Where Have...

The Gin Blush

This week on Episode 33 of The Charlie Tonic Hour we are bringing you another Ginny Tonic original recipe. Yes indeed, necessity is truly the mother of invention so when I needed a recipe for this week’s show and couldn’t find one that used the eclectic array of drinks in the liquor cabinet I...

Queen City Drinks

    This week I expanded writing audience and love of drinks by becoming a writer for the Cincinnati-based drinks blog, Queen City Drinks. So what is Queen City Drinks all about? Well let’s ask them: “Queen City Drinks is a community-based blog where whoever wants to has a place to...
