We take a look at 1776 American Brown Ale, which came in when we reviewed our James E. Pepper Whiskey a few weeks ago. Seemed like a fun time to start the week of cocktails off with a beer review. Always nice to "mix ...
We create the cran-apple martini using our Omega NC800HDS to crush some frozen cranberries. The key here, warm your cranberries before you juice them to get more juice from them, otherwise you get more slushy cranberr...
We take a bit of Pow Wow Rye and build a cocktail with some organic apple juice. This is a simple cocktail creation that is perfect for the holidays, perhaps something good for before, during or after Thanksgiving. ...
We used Coole Swan Irish Cream because we wanted a more white color without the impact of the darker spirit taking over. Red Stag Black Cherry infused Whiskey is the core component to this build and it does not domina...
Merry Turkey Day coming up, so we're getting your taste buds ready with the Pumpkin Pie Martini. Yeah, this martini actually has pumpkin in it, so get your puree ready! Ian falls in love with this drink before the se...
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...
Obviously some fans like to watch Derrick suffer and Ian excel at drinking extremely quickly. So, we have Kraken in the Deep, a cocktail with Mike's Hard Blood Orange and Kraken in a "depth charge" style event. Aside...

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 ...

A warm cocktail for our Tuesday, this cocktail brings some sweetness from the cardamom-clove simple syrup yet keeps the apple cider profile and hides the bourbon well within this design.

Today we create a classic whiskey sour, in a coupe with bourbon cherries. This whiskey sour recipe is quite excellent and you'll be hard pressed to find one that's better we think.

We took a look at a new product from American Barrels Bourbon, a new bourbon brand making its way to the market. First, they've launched in select stores with a goal of hitting a few online stores (and more outlets) in 2015.

Happy Thanksgiving! Ours has already been quite eventful with a big snow storm, power loss, internet loss and more! This video was uploaded over 4G LTE, so it took awhile, but we got it out on Thanksgiving! The Thanksgiving Manhattan is here, it's a festive twist on a standard manhattan which makes it much better (in my opinion) than the original.

The Ambassador's morning life is a cocktail with eggnog, as requested by one of our fans that said "make me your favorite drink with eggnog." Considering my favorite drink with eggnog is, in fact, simply eggnog, we went searching for a cocktail with eggnog. That cocktail with eggnog is: The Ambassador's Morning Lift. Is it our favorite? Who knows, this is the first time trying it, but hey, it's not bad.

Gleaming the Ice Cube, a recipe submission but Curtis McMillan, one of our long time fans of the show turned co-host. Curtis creates a drink that takes bitters out of the "dashes" and into a traditional ingredient, yet keeps this drink well balanced and easy to consume.

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!

Educational series on Bourbon, no real drinking (although a bit of tasting), the goal of this video release was to explore the crazy history of an American Bourbon. We hit on the start of bourbon, where it went and some of the key names that made the bourbon a historic product that we can hold our own in the history books of American History.

The B'lure Bourbon Sour is designed much like a standard "Whiskey Sour" but with a twist. Not only does it bring a nice delicious Buffalo Trace Bourbon to the scene but it takes it too a new level with B'lure Butterfly Pea Extract.

A very aromatic cocktail with a dry finish. This cocktail has tons of flavor, for a champagne cocktail, and will blow your senses but you have to be a little bit okay with champagne in a cocktail and an off-dry cocktail. Don't forget, you can donate for our Fan Appreciation Month.
