A Visit to Spec's

Heaven is Spec’s. The Texas liquor superstore is everything the alcohol connoisseur needs and wants- aisles and aisles of liquid awesome. Boasting 150 stores all over Texas, if Spec’s doesn’t have it, it’s likely able to get it for you. I stopped at my first Spec’s outside San Antonio and spent $200 without blinking. I was kicking myself because I didn’t have cash since Spec’s has a policy of 5% back if you pay with cash. So, to get this discount, I got cash, and stopped at the Spec’s in Austin. I spent another $100. I know, either I have to leave Texas or find a clinic that specializes in liquor warehouse addiction.

Forbidden Secret

The last original cocktail that we put up in on the blog was a pre-winter cream cocktail, the Butterscotch and Cream. Now that it’s mid-winter, we will add another cream cocktail; however, we’re going to hold off on the Bailey’s. Actually, here in the Firewater Lounge, we’ve held off on the Bailey’s for a while now. Why? Well, the traditional Irish cream is a flexible mainstay, one of the 30 Essentials, and likely in the fridge for Winterfest XXII, but, quite frankly, Bailey’s is not alone at the top of the cream liquors anymore.
