THE TASTY BITS THIS WEEK
Special Feature Story of the Week – ESSENTIALS OF A DRY BAR
In my opinion, a properly stocked home dry bar needs about twenty liquid ingredients and some fruit! Nearly all these things can be purchased in small containers and stored away for that impromptu after hours party. The other stuff can quickly be snatched up on the way home! It’s not a bad idea to have a bartenders handbook nearby also.
The Non-Boozy Ingredients
Angostura Bitters (I know, they are alcoholic, but not really considered booze!)
NOW, here is the good stuff
Bulleit American Bourbon
Bushmills Irish Whiskey
Flor De Cana Nicaraguan Dark Rum
Bacardi White Rum
Tequila DON”T skimp here, Hornitos or Espolon at the minimum
Vermouth -just a small bottle, you will still have it when you die
3-4 Liqueurs Kailua, grenadine, triple sec, amaretto are good choices
The Other Stuff
Oranges, Lemons and Limes
Hot Sauce and LOTS AND LOTS of ICE!!

TECH TIME WITH MARSHALL
Each week I check in with Marshall Kirkpatrick for the latest in Tech news and tweets. Whether he is tirelessly building his new project Plexus Engine or continuing his work with Read Write Web, Marshall always has his finger on the crystal ball of whats new in the world of technology. This week I will show you to three things that Marshall has shown me that I think are totally awesome.
Flipboard is an awesome app for your iPhone. According Wikipedia “The application is designed to collect the content of social networks and other websites and present them in magazine format on the iPad. ” BUT back in early December 2011, it was made available as an App on the iPhone and I have never looked back! I use this app all the time.
Now I Know is a cool daily email that send you some bit of information that you will be glad you know. Always insightful and fun!
Huffduffer.com is a great tool for searching for podcasts and MP3s you are interested in. Like Flipboard, it allows you to narrow your search results to get just what you are looking for. Also a great linking engine! I am new to this one, so there may be more on this one in later podcasts/blogs.
