Five Years of Peanut Butter & Awesome!

Has it really been five years already?  Amazing!  I want to start off right away by thanking all of you for your continued support.  Without our readers (and viewers), we wouldn't have a reason to do any of this.

I mean, we still would.  I don't think we've ever once let reason stand in the way of anything we've done, so why start now?

I reached out to have people tell me the stuff they've liked over the years, and I would like to share with you some of the responses I got.

Bottom Shelf Mixology S2 Episode 17: Millennial Martini

Welcome to the Bottom Shelf Mixology™ video series!  Our staff of Mixologists have decided it would be a good idea to actually test our special "bottom shelf" recipes.  What have we done?

This one is all Andrew Leamon's fault!  He was telling me about LaCroix and it being taxed in Chicago, and how everyone was flipping out over it.  Because of this we decided to make it a drink!  I had never had LaCroix before, and I wish that was still the case. 

It's not good.

Jackbox Party Pack 1 & 2 Land on Nintendo Switch!

Today, the first two Jackbox Party Packs land on the Nintendo Switch eShop, and the timing couldn't be better.

On Monday, a small group of us were playing Jackbox Party Pack 3 on the Switch, and I was lamenting the lack of the first two.  I thought is Switch owners would never see them.

I've never been happier to have been wrong about that!

They also announced that Jackbox Party Pack 4 will be releasing on the Switch later this year. It will have the games Survive the Internet, Monster Seeking Monster, Fibbage 3, and two unannounced titles.

The Jackbox Party Packs 1 - 3 are available for $24.99, with a special twenty percent discount on the others if you buy one.

Check the full press release below.

Bottom Shelf Mixology: Hot Dad On Your Lips

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

Today, I have a brand new recipe that is a collaboration between me and my internet friend Hot Dad!  He told me that a drink based on him should have Fernet in it, but at the lowest price (that I could find) at $25, it was a little too pricey for the Bottom Shelf.  Since Fernet is a bitter, we have replaced it with, you guessed it, cheap bitters.

Hot Dad On Your Lips

  • 1 oz Fleischmann's Rye Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • 1/4 oz Angostura Bitters

Start watching the video below.  Put some ice in a tall glass.  Add the rum, amaretto, and bitters.  Until the end of the song, stir the drink.

Now that the song is over, pour the drink into a short glass while straining out the ice.

Drink, and enjoy another Hot Dad song.

Repeat until you have Hot Dad's entire library memorized.
