Starbucks found themselves a Unicorn this week 


In the hunt for the ultimate drink, Starbucks has struck gold this week with its introduction of the Unicorn Frappuccino.      In the words of the Barista at our local Oconomowoc Starbucks yesterday, “sorry, but the whole country is out”.   This is one day earlier than advertised, making the craze for this unique creation, even that much more successful.  

The drink takes a break from the normal hum drum latte and transforms the drinker to a magical world of pink and purple.  The sour and sweet combination makes the tongue sing with fantastical excitement.  This magical mixture of sour mango and sweet blue raspberry provide a perfect melody of deliciousness.  Like my favorite candy, Sour Patch Kids, it gives you a quick hit of sour, but finishes sweet,  like the naughty little creatures they are.  

When you look at the hysteria and happiness that this drink has created over the past five days, I would say that Starbucks has again successfully made many people happy and hyper.  With a mere 59 grams of sugar, it may not be the healthiest of treats, but it may be the most fun!

The Ultimate Halloween Candy Beer and Wine Pairing Guide


Alright the weekend is upon us and you are probably wondering how you are going to survive another weekend of candy crazed kids.  In addition, Are you wondering what to do with all that leftover Halloween candy?

Well luckily I have your answer in this post.  Since everything these days is called a “craft” something, I thought it be appropriate that we learn how to pair our craft beers and wine with our kids Halloween candy.  

As I saw many plastic cups in parents hands while walking their kids through the labyrinth of the neighborhood candy maze, I thought it be appropriate to provide these survival guides to get you through the weekend and be ready for next year’s adventure.

I am a believer that just about anything can be paired with beer and wine and as you will clearly see others do share my opinion on this topic as well.  So my recommendation this evening is after the kids have gone to bed or while you are checking their final stash of candy for razor blades and needle, you pull out the candy bars, the sour patch kids, and all of the other goodies you love and finish your evening off right. I could even see a candy pairing party for this weekend so keep your calendars open and enjoy.
