Got Beer? Visiting Pilsen: Day Trips From Prague

Na zdraví! Welcome to the birthplace of Pilsner beer, the small western Bohemian city of Pilsen. To be honest, the city isn’t going to blow anyone away and I fully admit that we came for the beer but if you end up like us, with a full couple of days to wander around, there are …

Three tumbler glasses with Scotch whisky

Around the World in 80 Drinks: Single Malt Scotch Whisky in Edinburgh Scotland

Welcome to the Scotch Whiskey (or is it Scotch Whisky?) edition of Around the World in 80 Drinks, a series that takes us on a drunken — in this case scotch-fuelled,  whirlwind of adventure around our planet. Sometimes (although not today) we’ll talk about delicious non-alcoholic drinks.

Tequila-in-Mexico

Tasting Tequila in Mexico: Around the World in 80 Drinks

Let’s play a game, shall we? It’s a fill-in-the-blanks kind of activity, where the rules of kindergarten (a place where all answers are good answers, as long as you try) DO NOT apply. In this game, there is only one correct answer. And if you guess right, you’ll be able to go about your day, …

The Caesar

Belgian Beer in Belgium: Around the World in 80 Drinks

This is a tale of beer…Belgian beer, to be exact. And if we’re really being specific, this is a tale of far too much Belgian beer…   Beer, oh beer! I do love you so! I love you like you’re my child; I drink you like you’re the last drop of fresh water. Okay, not …

Today we’re going to take a break from all the Europe this, Europe that, blah blah blah-ing I’ve been doing lately, and we’re going to take a spin around the globe to beautiful South America to chat all about the Colombian coffee region.

Around the World in 80 Drinks: Amsterdam Airport Lounge Edition

Remember back in Finland, when I discovered that as North Americans we pretty much live like peasants, all what with our lack of champagne at every meal and also as a nutritious snack and what not? So when we decided to head back to Europe a few months later, I was excited to live for …
