  1. LOVED Holiday Cocktails with Duane tonight! Always awesome when Duane 'mixes' up the show. And especially today - y'all sounded like you had been tequila taste testing pre-Duane... shake, shake, shake!!!

  2. I always enjoy when Duane makes a visit to DNR. His creative elixers are delightful, and so is he.
    I just picked up my very first bottle of Pisco Porton, and I love it. So many great potables one can create with this sweet liquor. Thanks for brightening my holiday celebrating this year.
