It's just not good enough to do a blind tasting if we don't include vodka in our blind tasting portfolio. Today we look at three vodkas, true blind, and include Teton Glacier, Titos Vodka and St. Petersburg Vodka. Wh...
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 Relapse cocktail, one of the shortest cocktail episodes in years here on CMC. We created the recipe and did an entire 11-minute show and forgot to hit the 'record' button on the camera... so that was fun. This drink will have a bit of a spice to it, thanks to Bittermens Hellfire Shrub, the more you add the more heat and vinegar you'll have in your flavor profile.

This cocktail brings on the sweet pineapple flavor with a little rich dark flavors hidden within its taste. The dark rum is well hidden and offers no real burn factor as you sip. A great concept for a sweet-forward punch. If you're a fan of pineapple juice, if you like sweeter drinks than this is the punch you may want to be drinking. It is simple in design and does not require too many ingredients to hunt down.

The Scorpion bowl, a cocktail recipe (or punch) that's the bane of many a young college student. The Scorpion bowl, something people dare to order off the menu at a polynesian restaurant. That is a dangerous little number but not all recipes are the same--most aren't that good. People want to drink a scorpion bowl without being blown away by alcohol burn. They want to enjoy their drink with friends and this recipe will meet those expectations.

Today we get a bit tiki I think, or at least it feels that way once we took a sip. This is a cocktail that fits the tiki style and seems to be on the sour side of cocktails.
