Tonight I'm finishing off a bottle of some unusual liqueur.  It's from Corbin Cash, and it's made from sweet potatoes.

http://corbincash.com/spirits/

It's an estate distillation.  That is to say, the sweet potatoes are grown on the farm where the distillery is located.  A true farm-to-bottle operation, they distill a number of other products also using ingredients they've grown on-site.

This stuff is tasty, if a bit sweet.  It's pretty amazing, actually, and it is inexpensive.  Find yourself a bottle of the stuff at your local Bevmo/Total Wine and enjoy as an after-dinner sip.

I've been of my game with the start of school, but I should be catching up.  ;-)

In Minneapolis for the week seeing the young one. Went to supper last night and amongst the list of microbrews something stuck out, Hamm’s,  so I had one.

Using up the last of the Aperol and Prosecco. Will be transitioning to Campari and Amaro for my fall/winter cocktails. There are some beer cocktails I'm interested in, although these would still be good on a hot afternoon and with a light, cheap beer (i.e. Hamm's):

Not Quite Picon Biere
1 oz citrus-leaning Amaro (in France you would use Picon, but it is not available here)
0.25 oz orange liqueur
6 to 8 oz pilsner or lager, chilled
Lemon or orange wedge for garnish

Tequila Soleil
0.5 oz reposado tequila
0.5 oz red bitter liqueur, such as Campari
0.5 oz blanc or sweet red vermouth
4-6 oz session IPA, chilled

I was gonna recommend The Happy Gnome in St Paul, but I see that they've closed.  That's sad. They had a great tap beer selection.

Check out the Brother Justus whiskey distillery in St. Paul. They make some outstanding tipple. Pick up as much as you can because you can’t find that stuff anywhere but the source.

Seems to be a common theme.    Thanks

Lasr night- a finger's worth of New Holland Beer Barrel Bourbon.  Slightly sweet, tasty!

... and we're back. I love my job everyday, but I've had a bunch of crap going on this week outside of school, in this afternoon the last thing I had was study hall, and I have a bunch of girls in there who were incredibly whiny.

Plus it's 75 and sunny. I'm sitting by the covered pool, on beer number three, enjoying the sunshine and just relaxing.

PBR, a local distilleries lemonade plus bourbon, and now a local microbrew blackberry ipa, which is incredibly tasty.

On De ck is a mojito made with a mint that is still growing here. After that I'm totally going with a gin and rhubarb simple syrup drink.

The bummer is I wanted to work on the SV tonight, we'll see what happens.

A  nice cuppa' tea so far, but there's a bottle of Mount Gay Eclipse rum in the cabinet calling out to me (in a friendly Barbados accent) to come and have a go...

The local grocery store happened to have my favorite rosé in stock, so I snagged 3 bottles. Fourstring and I shared one tonight.

If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Yes!  And I took it for a ride an hour ago.  It REALLY lights it up well.
