Happy Holidays!

The Milk Punch Cocktail

We’re taking a brief break

We’re taking off for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. So this is our last post of the year. We’ll be back with a new post on Wednesday, January 6, 2016.

If you get bored and need something to read before then, why not browse our index? You’ll find plenty of good stuff there.

We’d like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season! See you next year.
