Whether you follow the legend of Kore or Persephone (who are essentially the same person but with vastly different stories, depending on which one you think is most accurate!), you can't deny that pomegranates are a lovely symbol of this time of year. Why not celebrate your darkness and surviving Hades on Earth with a pomegranate cocktail or two before Mecury goes into Retrogade?

Independence Day isn't one of my favorite holidays, but I do love to spend time with my family, have a rare beer on tap at the park (although ours is flooded this year and we probably won't go elsewhere) and watch the fireworks from afar.

St. Patrick's Day is quickly approaching, and while many of us already have delicious favorite drinks we're looking forward to enjoying, there's always something new to mix up and try.

We may love tequila, but not all of us like the sting of an actual shot, preferring mixed drinks instead. So why does tequila sting? In short, it's because the alcohol lowers your capacity to withstand heat in your throat, making it much more sensitive and causing a strong burn that can feel worse than, say, coffee or hot soup.
