Your Weekly Internet Cocktail Hour

Published On January 10, 2014 | By Sarah Parker | The Boys Club Guide

My gentle readers, if I see the word “detox” used incorrectly one more time*, I may have to consider hibernation for all future Januarys. Between that and the Plague of Cedar Pollen that reigns terror here in Central Texas, hibernation is looking better and better. However I must take a moment to be grateful that we missed the brunt of the Poehler Polar Vortex that has been camping out over the U.S. all week. If -40 degree F temperatures coupled with cabin fever isn’t a reason to drink, I don’t know what is. If that’s not happening to you, hey, let’s all play a game of pretend. I’m looking at you in your bikinis on the beach, Australia.

Reasons to Drink (in case you do these things by occasion):

Some choices for your retoxing, my dears:

1. Hot Buttered Rum, from the very best in southern periodicals, Garden & Gun.

2. Not one, but FOUR hot toddy recipes for you to choose from: The Water Tower Toddy, the Against the Grain, King Toddy, and Glimmerglass Hot Toddy. This seems ripe for a toddy tasting, no?

3. Caramelized White Chocolate “Hot Chocolate” (No I’m not really sure why that’s in quotes either) which you can enjoy with the kids and teetotalers, while still sensibly spiking yours with something delicious. Let me know what you like best.

4. To put in your coffee, regular cocoa, and anything else you fancy: Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur. Gives you a nice project to boot.

Around the Internet | Booze-related and otherwise:

 To read: Planning your 2014 trip? Consider planning it around The cities with the cheapest beer in the world.

To watch: 27 Drinks Made From Coffee.

The weirdest thing I found this week: Secrets of the Living Dolls, A Documentary About Men Who Wear Latex Bodysuits to Masquerade as Dolls. I honestly have no commentary for this. 

And finally, your weekly tip on How to be a Man, From a Woman: If you find yourself at The Fancy But Still Cool Bar Pub Speakeasy, be sure to comment sarcastically on how manly your “Way Too-Pink Tini” is before assuring everyone how strong the alcohol content is.

That’s all for now, m’dears. Stay warm or cool or mildly temperate and I’ll see you back here next week.

*Your body detoxes itself. That is what organs such as the liver are for. You do not need to go on a special juice cleanse, or put weird pads on your feet. This will most likely only make you some combination of hungry, grouchy, and poorer.

    Agreed on the detoxes. Eating more vegetables and fruits is good for you, but it’s not a 2 week program which is why I’m making a lifestyle decision to drink a tall bloody mary everyday. I’m pretty sure it counts.

    I love you for commenting on the detox thing! I’m pretty sure you will never convince the people that do them though…

  5. Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking a few minutes and actual
    effort to produce a very good article… but what
    can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

  6. Admiring the dedication you put into your website and detailed
    information you provide. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a

  7. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s
    the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
