Viniq Glow is a peach flavor liqueur made with vodka and moscato. Much like the original Viniq Shimmery Liqueur or the follow up Ruby version, this product has the edible pearl dust floating within it that gives it su...

Here is a twist on the well known Pisco Sour. Aside from being an egg white cocktail which is always silky smooth and sexy, the grape flavor comes through and lends great tasting elements to that of the pisco. Taking...
Ian sticks out his pinky for the Leap Year Cocktail as he sips the gin and vermouth martini that isn't a standard gin martini, it's a Leap Year! This is slightly sweeter than a sweet gin martini thanks to the grand ...
One of our fans submitted a "cocktail request" which was actually to do another tequila review. We happened to have tequila in house to review, so it seemed sensible to connect those two things together and the child ...
Cucumber muddled with wasabi creates a cocktail that brings all the flavors of spice and vegetable in a delicate martini. This is indeed a craft cocktail design even if it follows the marketing of "martini" and utiliz...
We found an episode that was growing a bit old in our archive that never made it online. So, here is our 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey review we did last month. As Ian says, it's time to "shut up and taste that." The 2 Gin...
Always an interesting combination when bringing absinthe and peppermint together in a cocktail combination. The Glad Eye cocktail can also add a bit of water to dilute down further if the ice doesn't do it enough. Cu...
While going through our video archive I found a few episodes we never launched, this episode was from a few months ago, when we reviewed Whistlepig 12-year Old World Rye Whiskey. I made a few cuts where the informati...

The Irish Wake, what makes it Irish? The only thing we can think of is the high amount of alcohol and the stereotype that Irish know how to drink (they do have a holiday named after it after all).

Not sure what makes this such a mars shooter (or master of it), but I am guessing the layering technique looks like something you'd see on an alien terrain. But, how does it taste?

The Purple Gecko, turns out not so purple because we forgot the 1 oz. of Cranberry Juice. So, if you do that perhaps you'll get a nice purple and a bit more dryness in the flavor profile. In many ways, this tastes much like a standard margarita, but it could use a bit of agave nectar to go into that direction. In other ways, once cranberry juice is added, you're closer to that of the Pink Cadillac Margarita.

Our second red bull cocktail of the week (since we had a can we might as well use all of it). The Bullfrog tries to duplicate the works of a Long Island iced tea but brings in curacao and a half can of red bull. Will it hold up with all those ingredients and no juice to balance out the sharp alcohols and energy drink?

Here is a cocktail that will bite you right in the bo jangles! A sweet flavor, a tart bite of fresh simple syrup with great acidity. This cocktail makes you want to keep drinking, super awesome.

The Green Thumb is definitely green with a bit of foam on the top, submitted by Alfredo... but now I'm hungry for some pasta. The alcohol balance is very good in this drink, there might almost be too good of a balance. No one ingredient overpowers the Green Thumb, if anything there is a bit of an ethanol draw on the back of the finish. This is much like a fancy screwdriver cocktail.

The Añejo Highball, or the "Añeho-ho Highball", is much the child of a Dark n' Stormy, it's got the rum and ginger beer with a bit of lime and curacao to give off a little sweetness along side a bit of bitter. You can find a few different base spirits used for an añejo highball, for us we're doing this with a rum.

The iceberg shooter, another cocktail that's designed to look fancy while bringing a little bit of a minty taste along with the cream it rides upon. The Iceberg Shooter could be good for a themed party (or maybe the cold part of the year) and, of course, for Canadians!

Here is a flavorful little number, the shark repellant cocktail has a great color with nice pineapple body with citrus that is both sour and sweet without any real alcohol burn. The closest comparison is a pineapple lemonade, if such a thing exists. Adding coconut would simply ruin this cocktail by making it taste like every other tropical cocktail.

One of the more highly requested cocktail recipes, it is right up there with the Long Island Iced Tea. The Adios Motherfucker, A.M.F or AMF cocktail is constantly being searched for because of its crazy mysterious ingredients. Okay, it's not that crazy, you're looking at about the same design as the Long Island Ice Tea with blue curacao and no triple sec (with citrus soda instead of coke).
