Creepin’ It Real

Today, of course, is Halloween and I wanted to put together an original cocktail for the occasion. So, I had to think up some content to go with it. I’ve covered a lot of Halloween subjects, but I’ve never discussed my drinking-based fears. So, without further adieu, here they are:


When at home, I’m typically well-stocked in all liquor fields. However, when we’re on vacation, it can sometimes get dicey on whether you’ve packed or picked up enough rations for the duration of the getaway. This becomes even more of a potential nightmare when you’re sharing your supplies and seeing them drained at an alarming rate. Poor preparation hasn’t happened for ol’ Mr. Sip yet, but this is the kind of stuff that keeps me awake at night!


I’ve been blessed with the ability to get smashed at night and wake up the next morning without any effects. But I worry that will change as I age. On a similar subject, I’ve already seen friends and family members have to change what or the ways they drink due to aging, such as switching which beer they consume or abandoning brews altogether. I hope it never comes to this for myself, but even the greatest have to call it a career sometime.



Honestly, I rank wine very low on my booze depth chart (poor cider doesn’t even make the cut) and so I’m not a fan that a majority of wineries only offer red and whites and not sudsy yellow substances. In general, I’m all about choices, even when too many options can cause issues. If all you have to offer is libations I don’t have much use for, expect a sulky Sip Advisor as a result.


After a good night of boozing, nothing could be worse than your kids either waking up in the middle of the night or being your alarm at some god awful time of the early morning. Mrs. Sip and I have been lucky with our kids being very good sleepers. But there’s always that nagging fear hanging over your head when you’re called it a night much later than you should have, that karma will be waiting for you, in the form of your offspring.

Creepin’ It Real (A Sip Advisor Original Recipe)

Creepin' It Real

  • 1.5 oz Bacardi Dragonberry Rum
  • Top with Lemon Lime Soda
  • Float of Black Tea Vodka
  • Garnish with Blueberries

I like how the Black Tea Vodka float represents how irrational fears can seep into your conscience! What’s your boozy fears? What do you think of mine? Are there any licensed psychiatrists out there, who specialize in liquor conflict resolution? Seriously, I should have pursued that path in school and created a whole new industry. Happy Halloween, my little sippers!
