Tasty vices

On today's date in 1987, Ben & Jerry's created my favorite ice cream, Cherry Garcia. It is now their most popular flavor.



Oh, one more thing... I think this breaks up the lull between Father's Day and our upcoming wedding anniversary very nicely, thank you.

According to Tom Fitzmorris of the New Orleans Menu Daily, today is National Dry Martini Day.

Bottoms up!

Is there such a thing as an ice cream martini? If there isn't, there should be.

beckeye, I'm sure there is. While this will make martini purists scream (YES LULU I KNOW A REAL MARTINI ONLY HAS GIN AND VERMOUTH) there is a delicious chocolate cherry martini called the Effen Sexy made with Effen Black Cherry vodka and creme de cacao. It tastes remarkably like Cherry Garcia ice cream.

katy, the designer martinis have proven to be a highly effective way to get women to consume hard likker. I'm all in favor of the trend.

Splotchy, whenever I start to get...well, worked up, over Dita Von Teese I just think about her kissing Marilyn Manson and it ends right away.

Barbara, you need to go get some at the earliest opportunity.
