I believe I've mentioned that I'm somewhat of a workaholic, but one job or 10, we can all agree on one thing, sometimes work just sucks. Yesterday was one of those days, but instead of heading home I decided to try my luck one more time and see if a few cocktails could at least bring me out of my foul mood and cloud of self-loathing. 
144. What's your go-to grape?
We all have a go-to grape, don't we? It may not be the best wine out there and it certainly may not be the most expensive, but that doesn't matter. It's a wine we know we love and that we know we enjoy. And isn't that what wine is really all about?
145. Alternative drinking vessels spike the fun factor
What we consume our beverages from can be as interesting as the beverage itself.
146. Jack and tonic? Never heard of it
Apparently, my favorite drink is so rare most bartenders have never heard of it.
