Made in drunken celebration of Sharknado 3 and tequila day, the sharknado 3 cocktail was invented by a fan of the movie. We think the movies are a bit silly but everyone has their own taste. Speaking of taste, everyo...

A sour cocktail that tastes like dessert and fun loving creamy oak. Of course, egg white is involved for that silky smooth mouth feel, foamy head and taking some edge off the overproof cask strength bourbon. Bad Eggs...
So, we all know Bond's thoughts on what drink is better, but because Bond is a fictional character from the mind of its creator we can only assume Ian Flemming likes his drinks shaken too, right? Well, lets push awa...
How do you test if you have a bad egg? Before you crack that egg for a fancy egg white for your whiskey sour, you may want to make sure it hasn't expired. Sure, there is an expiration on the box of eggs, but how accu...

The Hearts of POM cocktail utilizes POM Wonderful to generate a pink drink for breast cancer awareness week (for the month of October). This drink has a slightly salty tequila flavor along side the off-dry pomegranate finish. Imagine a pomegranate margarita and Hearts of POM fits the category. Question of the day, favorite tequila-based cocktail?

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.

Today we taste a number of orange liqueurs to figure out if there are any that really stand out while also theorizing over what flavors may work well in what style of cocktail. We focus a bit on some of the sharper more distinct zesty notes or fleshy notes that occur in many of the orange liqueur.

The Golden Glove cocktail is supposed to be a "heavy weight" cocktail offering designed by Constante Ribalaigua in 1937. This variation to the daiquiri was served at Havana’s well-known La Florida Bar and was blended to a Frappé style. With enough ice one can pile the drink upon itself in a coupe so it looks like a pyramid of sorts. In our case, it was a bit liquidy for the snow pile but hey, we're no Constante.

Today Curtis does a "repair job" on The Bull cocktail to see if he can build a better cocktail design with the similar ingredient list. We did change a few ratios and brought in a white whiskey with lemon (as we ran out of lime) so some things will change up a bit.

The bull is a cocktail that tastes a bit like a bud light lime but a bit harder to execute on as it takes more than 1-ingredient to produce that flavor. Curtis doesn't care for it because it just tastes like bud light lime and believes he can do better. So he creates a new recipe called, "The Balls" for later.

Sunday Night Shooters is on and we're creating the cointreau-nilla shooter, a cocktail that's really simple to make for those that have cointreau and Dr. McGilliCutty's Raw Vanilla Schnapps. So, yeah, sweet and alcohol all up in your face. Your brain may really get confused with the super sweet super alcohol attack. You could probably call it the chemical orange.

Lots of orange zest action, berry flavors around mid-quarter of the taste with some fortified wine finish.

A more "sour" Mai Tai alternative (or original) that brings a huge round of flavorful particles of awesome to your face. Nice potency balanced against a grapefruit bite, a mild falernum mid-palate and a comprehensive roller coaster of flavors in the finish. You may confuse the tartness for potency if you're not careful.
