cross your fingers for me. i wanna go home.
cross your fingers for me. i wanna go home.
My sad attempt to mimic @bookersbrye comes with a little story. .
.
.
This is a sample of Old Overholt Bonded that @neatlyontherocks gifted me. See the Sheriffs badge? That's more akin to Virgil Earp, Wyatt's older brother. But the reason I got into Old Ovie is because of the crazy drunken lunger, Doc Holliday. According to historical records, Doc would order Old Overholt by the case! The Palace Saloon in Prescott, AZ has copies of his orders for Old Ovie from 1870 before he ventured to Tombstone following some of the Earp brothers. When a fire ravaged Whiskey Row in Prescott, patrons carried the beloved hard-carved Brunswick Bar from The Palace across the street thus saving one of two unique bars in the state of Arizona. The only other twin of this gorgeous Brunswick piece is housed at The Crystal Palace in Tombstone, AZ @crystalpalacetombstone. Tombstone is my true home and the one place where my heart feels full and I am without doubt or fear or worry, and a good pour of Old Overholt in The Town Too Tough To Die is pure heaven. .

Old Overholt Bonded is your good ol' Old Ovie only better and stronger, the way I feel in my favorite little boom town. So cheers to your Wild West history lesson for the day! Pour one for Doc, everyone's favorite menace. .

IT FINALLY HAPPENED! I could barely wait to post this! Yesterday @neatlyontherocks and I were finally able to spend some girl time together and afterwards she took me home to spoil me πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ She gave me a few samples of the bottle I've been chasing for a while now, Old Overholt Bonded! She also dealt with my obsessive picture taking too lol. Y'all this is soooo much better than regular Ovie 🀀 so worth the wait for it to make it to Arizona. I wonder if @parkplazaliquordeli has any yet πŸ€”

Happy Whiskey Wednesday! Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to Hamilton Distillers, the makers of Whiskey Del Bac! .
.
Whiskey Del Bac is a truly unique American Single Malt made in Tucson, AZ. Personally, I *adore* the Clear and Dorado because of the mesquite smoke. I love a good smokey whiskey! 🀀 (@mbrolanddistillery Dark Fired is delicious too!) .
.
.
.

I'd tried these 3 expressions before but had never seen the distillery. @karkarbinx was a fantastic host & kept the entire group engaged and laughing! I wish I had asked for a photo of the Distillers Cut she let me try but I was so excited to try it that i forgot πŸ˜‚ oops! Guess I'll just have to save up for my own bottle lol! @nathanthompsonavelino, @rrramonster and team are killin' the whiskey game and based on Hamilton Distiller's social media they have some wicked stuff coming up in the future! .

haaaaaapy Tombstone Tuesday 😏it may not be October but I already feel dead today. sleep eluded me last night and I have a lot to prove at work. here we go!
.
.
I was dared to leave a shot of @adventurous_stills whiskey in a @threewellsdistilling shot glass on 'my grave' by one of my newer friends in Arizona that has been one of the biggest and brightest rays id light in my life. I'm glad she dared me lol that's where the photo of me doing a shot here from a few weeks ago originated. Thank you, Queen Mother πŸ˜œπŸ’–πŸ₯ƒ
.
. .
And before y'all say anything, just know that they have signs saying not to leave money and I'm willing to bet you could find at least $200 in change and dollar bills across all the graves. I was simply showing this poor 19 year old my love and respect πŸ–€

the only thing I dislike about Mondays is that it means I'm away from my pupper. two more sleeps until more cuddles. until then, it's time to bust my ass & continue doing my best while trying to practice positive thinking and awareness πŸ–€πŸ–€

Mixing Sample Saturday with some Superstition Meadery. My three fave samples that I had; Lagrimas de Oro aged in @woodfordreserve barrels, Tahitian Honeymoon a vanilla mead aged in oak, and Peanut Butter Jelly Crime made with blueberries and peanut butter. .

Happy Rye Day the 13th, y'all!πŸ₯ƒπŸ–€πŸ₯ƒ This is the first Rye release from @adventurous_stills; a cask strength beauty full of life, spicy flavor, and a warmth so good there's no need for any water. Maybe a large clear ice ball if you must. I've struggled not to finish this bottle & I'll never be able to get one like this again. .
.
.

I'm making a second attempt to take a social media break. The noise has often become so loud that I can no longer hear the inner voice that is necessary for reflection and growth. If you don't hear from me directly, know that your comments, messages, and texts are seen and I will respond when I'm ready. I love y'all so much and I'm dedicated to getting through this phase of my life. I miss the brightness I once exuded but I will come out the other side shining brighter than ever ✨ .

πŸ’™πŸŒ½πŸ’™ It's #whiskeywednesday y'all! Last night @woahdessa hosted the first (of many) Uno Night for the Whiskey Women of Arizona & not only did she host our craziness but she also shared some amazing whiskeys including this Blue Corn Beauty from @balconesdistillery that she picked up on her trip across Texas 🀠
.
.
.
.
I lived in Texas for a few years but sadly was not a part of the liquor industry until after I left the Lone Star State and moved to Denver. This whiskey is the first thing that made me want to go back. I loooooooove a good Blue Corn whiskey, be it a 100% Blue Corn like @adventurous_stills has aging or a Blue Corn Bourbon like @gcbrewery has aging! I can definitely taste the difference between Blue corn and Yellow. I find it sweeter and more complex. Something I found interesting about this whiskey is the back label actually included the bit "intentionally youthful." As an assistant Distiller, I find that really wonderful because the imbiber knows ahead of time that the maker bottled this whiskey at a certain age for a certain reason. While I do prefer whiskey that's been aged as long as possible, I can appreciate and love a good young whiskey, especially when it's this delicious. If you can get ahold of this Baby Blue, do it! .

a little sample Sunday action from a few weeks ago when some of the Whiskey Women of Arizona went out to @bourbonjackschandler and shared a flight. 
L>R; Trails End, Redbreast 12yr, High West Campfire, and Rogue Dead Guy. Trails End was my favorite. Thank you @pdenny29 of @neatlyontherocks for letting me use your swanky phone to take this πŸ–€ .

this whiskey is perfect for exploring the hidden gems all around you. brought a bottle to this abandoned store I probably shouldn't have visited. it was a gorgeous spot to spend some alone time, admiring the thriving plant life around the shell of the building and finding plenty of saguaro fruit all over the ground. 🌡

I'm gonna try to use some staves from this whiskey to add a unique flavor to some grilled salmon, carrots, and bacon for dinner. now that the holiday is over and the rodeo is done, im back on the sober train. took a break to enjoy cheap crappy beer with my friends, loved ones, and all of the friendly people we met at the rodeo, bars, honkytonk, museum, and parks. it felt great to be more open to connecting with strangers and discussing all kinds of things from the best place for dancing to things to do in the area. also I danced a few times with a rodeo contestant who was a wonderfully kind man with some great moves. highly recommend dancing as often as possible. there's nothing quite like being twirled around the dancefloor in my favorite dress with someone who's only motive is to dance with a pretty girl. .

Happy #TombstoneTuesday! Rodeo Week is still going strong here in Prescott so this shot just happened to be perfect for the day. I haven't had any whiskey lately but I did cheat and had some cheap beer at the rodeo and some samples of wine and mead this weekend. I still managed to keep certain things in mind and continue to work on myself. I'm excited to see where this journey of self discovery takes me πŸ–€πŸ€ πŸ₯ƒ .
