Fall cocktail season is in full swing, and if you're like me your mind is laserlike focused on all things apple cider, cider donuts and pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. Most bars in the Baltimore area have debuted their fall cocktail lines to reflect dedication to the nice, warm flavors of autumn, and Rye in Fells Point has done just that as well. Cue the apple brandy heavy October Buck. It was supposed to be called the September Buck as a tribute to the Orioles, but as owner Doug Atwell put it, "We didn't think the O's would make it to the playoffs.

The folks at Gordon Biersch Brewery have a passion. Surprisingly, despite the name, it's not just for beer (though their German lagers will keep aficionados busy). Instead, their brand is defined by craft: From brew to food to cocktail and anywhere in between, the newly opened Harbor East restaurant believes in made-from-scratch, small-batch meals and beverages that customers can get excited about. Though handcrafted beer is their first love, Gordon Biersch brewery aims to "up the ante" with their drink program as well, elevating it to craft-level by infusing quality brands, fresh flavors, and sustainable products into their cocktails.

Graduations, showers, luncheons and more - a good punch recipe can always come in handy. Punch is one of those generic beverages that safely lend themselves to creativity. Just put good sips together and, although it's theoretically possible to go badly wrong, it's pretty hard to concoct something utterly undrinkable. Pleasant punch recipes abound, especially in the nooks and crannies of your mother's or grandmother's recipe collection and in the yellowed pages of old community cookbooks.

When families and friends gather for springtime celebrations, a festive punch is always welcome. Passover and Easter don't traditionally call for punch, of course. In fact, other than the Seder wine and perhaps champagne for the adults at Easter egg hunts, these occasions aren't widely associated with any particular beverage. But that just means there is plenty of room to tailor one to your own liking - and that's the beauty of a good punch. Nona Nielson-Parker of Glasz Cafe in Lake Falls Village just north of Mount Washington says there isn't much call for special beverages this time of year.

When you exercise for more than an hour in hot summer weather, it's natural to feel tired and weak; you are low on fluid and calories. But to perk up, it isn't necessary to eat or drink something "special." You can replenish what you've lost by eating or drinking anything.Years ago, studies showed that 2.5 percent was the highest concentration of sugar you could put in an exercise drink and still absorb it rapidly enough to have it make a difference when exercising. This 2.5 percent ratio poses a problem because drinks taste best when they are comprised of 10 percent sugar.

Halloween drinks are, for the most part, novelty items. Fake eyeballs, candy corn and even dry ice are all unfortunately used to dramatic effect this time of year. I have never been a fan of silly or gimmicky drink accessories. It makes me think that the bartender has something to hide. What's behind the cuteness winds up being an overly sweet or sour weak drink that I just wasted good money on. Luckily, the good people at Jack's Bistro are here to save us from such garish garnishes.

In honor of high fever, muscle aches, sore throats, coughs and even a touch of nausea, last week's Top 10 Tuesday at baltimoresun.com/diningatlarge featured my 10 favorite foods (and drink) to have when you have the flu: 1 Orange juice/ginger ale. This isn't an either/or. It's orange juice mixed with ginger ale half and half over ice because for some reason at the time you need orange juice most, it tastes worst. The ginger ale cuts the acidity and is bubbly, which adds interest at a time when not much is interesting, including whether you live or die. 2 Chicken noodle soup from Eddie's at Roland Park.

Welcome to Carrie Nation. The Department of Natural Resources announced last week a new alcohol policy at state parks that will, in effect, ban drinking unless you stay in top-of-the-line lodging or buy a $35 "special events" permit. Talk about pay to play. Nation, the 1900s temperance movement leader who attacked bars with a hatchet, would call it a step in the right direction. Day-use areas and beaches will go on the wagon March 31. Campgrounds - except for full-service cabins - will be dry starting next season.

Vernie C. Randall, a lively centenarian who enjoyed reading and following presidential politics, died Monday of complications from a stroke at the Fairhaven Retirement Community in Sykesville. She was 104. "She was a marvelous and most friendly person. When she entered the dining room, everyone waved. It was like the queen was arriving," said the Rt. Rev. David W. Leighton, the retired Episcopal bishop of Maryland. "Everyone loved to go and see Vernie because she was so joyful and alive," he said.

THIS WEEK marks the 70th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, so to celebrate I recently mixed up a batch of speakeasy cocktails. The recipes for concoctions called Horse's Neck, Flu Cocktail and Rock and Rye came from Manhattan Oases, a book originally published in 1932 that was written and illustrated by Al Hirschfeld, the noted theatrical caricaturist who died in January at the age of 99. As a young man about town, Hirschfeld toured dozens of...

Being sick is no fun anymore.There's no one to bring you bubbly ginger ale with a bendy-straw. Remember the sound of a freshly cracked bendy-straw? The straw contorted itself so the healing waters of the ginger ale entered your lips at a most sympathetic angle.Those were the days when Campbell's Soup meant something, darn it. Saltines were at your beck and call. And the Kleenex! Enough to wallpaper the house! Plus, you got to miss blocks of school days.Your ailment was household news. Loved ones tiptoed into your room to receive updates on your condition.

I THOUGHT I had missed the last call, but then I got a second chance and tapped into the good stuff. It happened last Wednesday night at the fifth annual Maryland Craft Beer Dinner at Sisson's in South Baltimore. In December, I missed a chance to taste a limited supply of Fuel, a small-batch winter beer made at Capital City Brewing in Harborplace. Then, last week, I got another opportunity to taste it. This time I cashed in. What a beer! Fuel is the espresso of brews, a dark, smooth stout, the sweet malt notes of which perfectly match with the acid flavors of Sumatra coffee.
