Folks here in Sacramento know the very best place to grab a Sake Bomb is at Crazy Sushi on a Thursday night. Something about a shot of warm sake bombed into a cold Sapporo beer is appealing during the hot summer nights. Something tells me its how tore back someone can feel after feeling too many of the rice wine and barley pops.

Recently, I had a chance to sit down with the Brand Manager of Rail Bridge Cellars, Michael Chandler. During our discussion, Michael explained to me the history of Rail Bridge, Some key decisions the winery has made recently, and where they are headed to in the next few years.
I’m a little shocked that we made it through our first year before even thinking about the Cranberry Martini. But now, the holiday season is here again, and what better time than now to fill that knowledge gap? It’s an obvious bonus for me, because I love cranberries. So let’s make a plan for the Cran, and dive into how to make the Cranberry Martini.

One scorching Friday night this June, my best friend and I were sitting on my front porch having our normal discussion of our crappy week. I had managed to get lost going to see the dentist that day, and I was in tears. My dentist had to walk over to the next parking lot and jump in my truck to rescue me from being lost. (What dentist does that? Thank you!) Back to the front porch: I had come up with a brilliant plan out of the clear blue sky, to head to Sutter Creek, in Amador County, the following day. I said it would be an adventure; we could go get lost together since the women in my family are so directionally dysfunctional. Did I mention my best friend is also my cousin? We planned on browsing the shops in this sleepy gold country town, and hitting some of the wine tasting stops.
May 11th marks the anniversary of the death of music legend Bob Marley.We figured we’d make the Bob Marley Shot in his honor. No doubt Bob Marley had that intangible factor that few artists ever have. Like other music luminaries Jimi Hendrix and Tupac Shakur, who also died young, Marley’s words and music seemed to cross boundaries and reach people right where they were at. In honor of the undisputed king of reggae music, today we’re making Flaming Bob Marley Shots. April 20th is right around the corner, so perhaps you should be downing this Bob Marley drink at 4:20pm. A huge spliff in the other hand is optional.

Another thing we found is that you can get a good happy buzz from the alcoholic bears, but you’re not going to get fall down drunk. Without further delay, here’s our own tutorial on how to make vodka gummy bears.
