If you get your nose in there, you’re going to smell the memories of freshly cut wood in your dad’s workshop. There are the standard whiffs in here–caramel and oak and I guess what some say is vanilla–but there are also campfire ashes and your grandpa’s aftershave.

I had a great time at AWP this past week. There were so many people to see, meet, and say hello to that it’s really kind of an impossible mission to complete. Someone should make a video game out of it to inspire kids to become writers. It would be like: I have to make it to the Hobart table before they run out of magic juice (whiskey)…I have to make it to the Sun Magazine reading to see Cheryl Strayed and get 500 points…I have to find Lindsay Hunter and give her a high five…I have to avoid that dude with the long beard who keeps submitting manuscripts to me…I have to meet the guys from McSweeney’s and have a discussion about irony for 800 points and a bronze coin with Dave Eggers’s face on it…I have to try to remember who that guy is who wrote that poem I liked in that new lit journal…AAAAAARRRRRGGGH! I’ve been stabbed by Jamie Iredell!!

My favorite AWP recap intro ever.

National Bourbon Month?!?!

an-imbibing-gentleman:

As we continue to celebrate National Bourbon Month… here’s a little gem that “Trader Vic” included in his 1947 cocktail guide. Most likely named in honor of the Kentucky Derby, this drink perfectly harmonizes the deep flavors of the bourbon with the tanginess of the triple sec and lime juice. Choose a strong full-flavored bourbon like Wild Turkey 101 to really give the drink an edge.

The Derby Cocktail:

  • 2 Parts Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon
  • 1 Part Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 Part Cointreau/Triple Sec
  • 1 Part Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Agave Nectar

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with lime wedge or rind.

The Millions warns: “reading Chris Newgent’s “No-Bull Bourbon Review” WILL make you thirsty.”

The bourbons I drink come with stories. You could call these stories the sixth flavor, and perhaps the most important. I’ve received many bourbon recommendations, and none of these have sold me with the traditional flavor profile bullshit. If I’ve remembered a bourbon recommendation, it’s because it was coupled with an unforgettable story. So, I’m going to tell you stories. Because maybe you’re like me. Plain and simple. That’s what I’ve always loved about bourbon. It’s plain and simple—no bullshit.

If Chris Newgent’s “No-Bull Bourbon Review” doesn’t make you walk over to your liquor cabinet, open it excitedly, and pour yourself a neat one, then will anything?

In addition to Newgent’s piece from Friday, we’ve also got some Special Sunday Football Hobart today: “A Recap Of The Philadelphia Eagles At The Cleveland Browns In The Form Of A Review Of Old Crow Reserve Bourbon”
