Chatting with Molly Wellmann

It is a bourbon-heavy show this week but we are guessing listeners of the Charlie Tonic Hour podcast will be ok with that. After a weekend wrap-up Ginny and I sit down with Molly Wellmann at the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar to talk about the bar, her new cocktail book, and of course, bourbon. After that we have...

Eight Years Waiting

A lone bottle of pomegranate zinfandel may seem like a strange wine to hold for eight years, but that’s what happened with this one. My mom purchased it as a gift with a special label dedicated to a farm I had just purchased all those years ago. At first I was holding it for some kind of ceremonial...

Beer and Sweat

  Back in Episode 87, Charlie and I talked about how much fun we had volunteering at Beer & Sweat. When I first saw the poster I thought it was another one of those beer runs that keep popping up all over but it is actually the homebrew competition that is put on by the Bloatarian Brewing League....

Queen City History Tours

As we were standing in front of the court house in downtown Cincinnati, learning about the worst riot in the city’s history and one of the worst in whole country, I noticed some curious onlookers watching us as they walked by. “What kind of crazy person pays good money to walk around the city...

Wild Turkey Bourbon Dinner at Arnold’s

Just heard about the Wild Turkey Bourbon Dinner at Arnold’s today and I am I really excited. This is an excellent chance to do a bourbon tasting with Master Distiller Jimmy Russell from Wild Turkey and on top of that Arnold’s food is always great so $35.oo per person is a steal. Tickets are...

Cincinnati Downtown Restaurant Week

I am so excited about this coming week. Not only do I have some amazing things planned with friends, like seeing Ford Theater Reunion at MOTR this Thursday and a Cincinnati Microbrewery Tour with Tonic Tours on Saturday, this coming week is Downtown Restaurant Week. That means that 29 restaurants located in...

Christmas in July Shot

  Recently I have somehow found myself with a surplus of peppermint schnapps. I mean, considering I only ever use it in hot chocolate there is no reason for me to have two bottles of the stuff. But despite the fact that the bottle is occupying valuable real estate in my liquor cabinet, I just...

Ginny’s Goldshush

On Episode 82 we mentioned a new cocktail I made this week. It was, if I say so myself, a big hit so I wanted to share the recipe. It was based on another cocktail called the Goldrush so Charlie named it Ginny’s Goldshush instead. Easy to make and very good. The Goldshush 1 1/2 ounce ginger liqueur 1...

Derby City Comic Con

So Charlie and I finally made it through everything to the big event. Derby City Comic Con was this past Saturday, June 29th 2013, and by all measures it was a success. Attendance was up, vendors and artists had great sales, we had an wonderful turnout of amazingly dressed cosplayers, panels were full, and...

Afternoon Delight Cocktail

With Arrested Development and a discussion of Marijuana legalization coming up in Episode 76 this week, I just couldn’t resist finding a drink that would tie the two items together. What better than an “afternoon delight?” This was a drink where I thought of the name and knew there must be...

Queen City Drinks One Year Anniversary Party

Little bit late since this event was a week ago but still an amazing night and I wanted to share a few pictures. This post originally ran on Queen City Drinks last Saturday. Enjoy! I just wanted to post a few pictures that Charlie and I took at the Queen City Drinks one-year anniversary party. I don’t...

Hellapalooza at The Southgate House Revival.

  Thank you to everyone who came out to Hellapalooza at The Southgate House Revival and who took the time to stop by the Tonic Tours table. It was an unforgettable night for sure. Switchblade Syndicate rocked hard, opening the night with a cover of Hells Bells and playing several more times over the...

Ignite Cincinnati #9

  Sometimes you have to go looking for cool things in Cincinnati and sometimes you just get lucky and a friend drags you to one. The later is what happened to me last night. A friend of a friend was speaking at Ignite Cincinnati #9 and she bribed me with drink tickets if I would go with her. As we...

Savor the Season at Gorman Farms

I just wanted to say to everyone who stopped by the Tonic Tours table at Savor the Season. Gorman Farm is a beautiful place and it was a wonderful way to spend the day. I especially enjoyed setting up next to the lovely interns from Turner Farm and getting to try some new herbs I’d never heard of...

Kickstarter and Creativity

This week on Episode 71, Charlie and I will discuss the ways that comic creators and other creative types are using Kickstarter to fund their projects and make a living. You can hear our thoughts on the subject on Wednesday but in the mean time here are a few of the projects we mentioned and one of them is...
