Deadly Venom, Destruction To Your Face?

A drink submitted by a man in the military, is this drink too big for our faces? Turns out? No, the Deadly Venom tastes much like a Good and Plenty (for those that can get that candy). It won’t make you tough, but the sambuca does bring that black licorice flavor.

Don’t get us wrong, it’s not weak on alcohol, it just doesn’t taste like it. It’s a bit sweet.

The Jane Daniels Shooter

Jane Daniels, you know, the opposite of Jack Daniels. And, coincidentally, it has jack Daniels in it so… time to get rowdy! If you don’t care for Jack Daniel straight, you can add a bit of sugar to Jack Daniels and a bit of cinnamon and BOOM.

In some ways, it tastes like Fireball whiskey with a lot less cinnamon. It’s not bright pink and there isn’t a sparkler hanging out of it, so this is a man drink!

Purple Quartz-Tini, Viniq Shimmery Liqueur Cocktail

This drink might be targeted at the female persuasion with its color and shimmer. However, guys may like it as well, although it is a bit on the strong side for any human. Cut down the vodka and make this a better cocktail that brings out more flavor than ethanol.

Our last cocktail of the week using the new B’lure Butterfly Pea extract product. This drink doesn’t utilize B’lure as ice cubes, but more as a ‘bitter’ by dashing it into the drink.

Adding sour changes the color, of course, and turns this into a more “sour” cocktail offering. The best part, it’s pretty darn cute looking.

Alter Ego Mojito, with B’lure Butterfly Pea Extract

The B’lure alter ego mojito, this cocktail uses ice cubes much like our B’lured Bourbon Sour from yesterday.
