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 ...

Time for a cocktail that almost taste like Christmas, a month too early but still sets the mood. It almost feels like we are eating Christmas with this cocktail, which may be the frangelico mingling with the cinnamon fire. What was the last cocktail that you had which was REALLY strong? Or, did you go Ian's way with the giiiiiin and tonic. Or, perhaps a really strong white Russian? International audiences...what is your "thanksgiving" holiday called? Punch bowls of death and bad decisions?

The Captain Morgan Espresso Martini has both captain morgan (or spiced rum) and espresso (coffee) which we have also included. It's all in a martini glass, so you have that going for you.

The Colorado Fireball, a flavorful Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ cocktail that inherits some concepts for the original Colorado Bulldog. However, instead of just bringing a boring vodka to the table (literally), we selected Fireball Whiskey along side some coffee liqueur all settled in a base of milk--not too unlike the way we eat our Cinnamon Toast Crunch™.

The Vermonter is a maple focused cocktail that finds itself layered in the shot glass. It finds itself that way, because we made it that way! A syrup sweet cocktail that could be a maple coffee drink from a place like starbucks (without the dark roast beans). A little tongue numbing action. What do you think of layered shots?

Yeah, we get a little sticky in this episode as we spill the contents of the Summer Sunrise all over the table. Coffee and melon which does actually work well together, with a sweet flavor and an off-dry finishing. Nothing radical or crazy in the flavor profile, it's a melon flavored iced coffee. Interesting!

Today we make a sweeter surprise, the Mississippi mudslide, it's like a typical mudslide but with a bit more awesome. And chocolate sauce (part of the teet of awesome). Of course, the secondary coolest thing to the teet of awesome is our neon yellow boston shaker!

If you like a mudslide and you like amaretto than you're probably going to love this cocktail. The almond really plays a nice part within it and maybe makes the traditional mudslide even better. There is a bit of potency in the start of this cocktail.

This cocktail, submitted from a fan in Australia fits the theme of Irish, as it has Irish Cream. We're using Coole Swan Irish Cream for this one. If you want to see the Grateful Dead Tiki mug we talked about, check it out at awesomedrinks.

We accidentally tapped an extra episode this week for Valentine's Day, so we'll post this first. Then, later today we'll fire off the actual Valentine's day recipe entitled the Scarlet Dreams.

A beautiful strawberry, coffee and cream combination that reminds us of ice cream, perhaps even neapolitan ice cream!
