Weekly Spirits


weekly spirits is a segment I’ll be doing every week featuring a liquor that I like. this weeks spirit comes from the Louisiana Spirits Distillery in Lacassine, Louisiana. Located between Lafayette and Lake Charles, Lacassine is… ok i’ma keep it real with you chief, I know nothing else about Lacassine, LA. other than the fact that an amazing rum flows up out of there and in to one of my favorite cocktails. I had never even heard of the place until I started mixing cocktails with Bayou Rum. I mean you can’t blame me, I was born and raised in LA. and I still can’t tell you anything about majority of the small towns dotted throughout the state. There’s just to many.

Anyway, back to Bayou Rum. I was first introduced to Bayou Rum while living in Texas. A bar I was working at carried their Bayou Silver rum. It was so effing smooth. I would even put it about say, Bacardi, or Cruzan. it’s just that smooth, and that’s all thanks to the sugar cane that is grown at the distillery. I mean that part of Louisiana is considered the sugar cane capitol of the US.

So next time you’re looking for a smooth and light rum, check out Bayou Rum (their Bayou Satsuma is my favorite. It’s reasonably price, local and delicious AF.

Trump Train Wreck

I’ve been alive to see Daddy Bush, Clinton, Dubya, and Obama complete their respective presidential terms. Yet I never, in a million years, thought I would see such a treason infested, and lying administration in the highest platform of government in this United States. Donald Trump, the modern day Benedict Arnold, is nothing more than a Putin influenced infection contaminating and attacking our democratic process.

From Donald Trump’s past and pre dealings with the Russian mafia, to the obstruction of justice accusations, money laundering and other charges surrounding him and his dwindling camp, Cheeto Jesus is Harlem shakin’ in his boots… and I’m here for it.

As head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, Robert Mueller has become the captain save a ho’ for all Americans who haven’t drank the MAGA koolaid. I am confident that Mueller has it in the bag as far as the demise of Trump and his “empire” is concerned. I am also hoping that Mueller can somehow nab Omarosa and Ben’s asses too … for good measure.
