My parents thought it’d be a good idea to give me a bottle of creme de menthe that had been sitting in their dusty basement bar for at least 20 years. I’m not sure why.

But here it is, and the novelty factor is what made me keep it. Along with several of the other questions — and answers — that inevitably came along with it:

Yes, this picture was taken on the floor.

No, I don’t know why I didn’t just put it on the table.

Yes, it is unopened.

No, I have not (yet) opened it.

Yes, I’m worried that it took on radioactive properties in the last two decades.

No, I will not be opening it anytime soon.

Since I’ll never be able to tell just by glancing at its unholy green hue, it may be safe(r) to say that some bottles are just better left unopened.

The Dashing Prince (Katamari Damacy Shot)
Ingredients:(recipe makes 6 shots)1 oz Blue Curacao1/2 oz Grenadine2 oz Vodka2 oz Midori Melon Liqueur2 oz Pineapple juice1 oz Fresh lemon juice6 Maraschino cherries with stems 
Directions: Mix the Blue Curacao and grenadine and divide into the bottom of 6 shot glasses. Pour vodka, Midori, pineapple juice, and lemon juice in a shaker and shake to combine. Carefully layer the green on top of the purple, and garnish the edge of each shot glass with a maraschino cherry. 
To take the shot remove the cherry from the edge and down it, and then eat the cherry afterwards. The result is a shot that’s sweet, quirky, and even a little fruity that’s best enjoyed with all your friends, just like Katamari Damacy. 
Guaranteed not to roll up your insides once ingested!
(This shot is an ingenious idea and is the work of Mer M.  Thanks for the submission!)


When I get married someday, I hope these will be in abundance at my future bachelorette party—even if the girls in attendance won’t know what the hell they’re drinking.

A wonderfully subtle Asian pear sake-tini from the lovely Thalia Spice restaurant in Chicago. Feeling the light, smooth liquid wash over my tongue and cool the back of my throat with the slightest hint of sweetness was like sinking my teeth into one of these crisp, delectable fruits. Yum.
