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...

Weekend Plans?

Charlie here this week sharing with you a rundown of some of the best things to consider in and around Cincinnati (and this week Atlanta) this weekend! This weekend there is one things we want to highlight first and foremost. That would be the official house hand of the Charlie Tonic Hour, Doctor Bombay and...

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...

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...

Wait a moment, where’s Ginny Tonic? Isn’t she the one who knows best when it comes to a fun weekend? Well, that is true, but this week you are going to have to settle for old Charlie. Ginny is all tied up with a mix of things like solving world peace, ending war and famine in our time and even...

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...

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...

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...

Secret Pop Culture Crushes

Since so many of its articles involve random scientific facts, pop culture references, and immature sexual innuendo it’s no surprise that the writers of Cracked are a frequent source of inspiration to Charlie and me. This week I read an article called 6 Pop Culture Icons Nobody Admits They Were...

The Quaker Cocktail

Quakers are not known for their cocktails, they tend to be more microbeer kind of people, so I am assuming that this cocktail was named after a location rather than after the Religious Society of Friends. This is a classic cocktail was found in The Savoy Cocktail Book, first published in 1930 in London, as...

La Fin du Monde

  This week on The Charlie Tonic Hour we bring you a drinks segment that we recorded live at Habit’s Bar in Oakley. In this segment we tried four different beers but I believe that the one that came out with the highest rating from our group was La Fin du Monde by Unibroue Brewery in Canada. Upon...

The Midsummer Masquerade 2012

The 3rd Midsummer Masquerade at Loveland Castle is behind us and I have to say that I think this year was the best so far. The weather was perfect, the performers were top-notch and the costumes were out of this world. In addition to magic and sideshow feats from Pickled Brothers Circus and Robbin Marks...
