As always, my friend, Julia over at Hooked on Houses, hosts "Hooked on Fridays," during which we can blog about whatever we're hooked on. For quite a while now, my family and I have been hooked on Coke Zero. If you want to give up sugary soft drinks but can't quite bring yourself to drink diet anything, you must check out Coke Zero. Admittedly, it's not exactly the same taste as Coca Cola Classic, but it's a pretty darn good facsimile.
And now for today's cocktail... Pat Green is an icon in Texas country music. Not only is he a great singer and songwriter, but he went to my alma mater, Texas Tech, so that's another plus for the guy. Oh, and I've met him, and he's super nice and very down to earth.
For the last few years, he's kind of wavered between Texas country and Nashville. Texas country music die-hards would call him a sell-out. I'm not a purist either way; I just like good music. Last summer, Pat came out with a song called "Let Me." It received modest airplay on mainstream country stations. I'm surprised it didn't do even better. Take a listen and see if you don't think this should've been a big hit for this nice Red Raider.
