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...

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...

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?

This drink brings some POW in its easy drinking nature yet you can just feel the alcohol content on your tongue. Perhaps it brings a little bite but it's tough to judge if it's that or a sour flavor. Considering this cocktail isn't balanced with a sour component, the alcohol may be generating the bite for you.

Today we explore five brands of grenadine to see how they play on the palate then we build five Shirley Temple mocktails to see how they play in our childhood drink. Of course, if you just can't shake your childhood legacy version of the Shirley Temple, you're probably going to fall back to Rose's Grenadine.

The wolf bite, apparently the exact same cocktail as the Zombie Bite (linked below), must be a lucid absinthe design considering it calls for it..and it's the second drink with the exact same ingredients. Absinthe lovers rejoice. A roller coaster of crazy flavor, this reminds Derrick of a Pearl Harbor dipped in black licorice.

Heaven in a cup says Jennifer, the Mattias Special brings the vanilla of the pink pigeon we utilized along with the coconut flavor and the citrus profile. The passion fruit we used wasn't that great, we could do better on that and get more passion fruit sweetness. Ours was a bit over-diluted but that's easily fixed. Definitely a "sweet tart" profile, a coconut rum with a sweet and a tart all working together.

Rustle submitted the Monkey Gland, and this is how his name is spelled...IAN. The Monkey Gland cocktail brings the classy flavor and design but our version included a bit of soap... yeah, we had to create it twice. Yes, Ian forgot to rinse out the shaker and poured soapy water into our cocktail so we had to re-create it. This episode is full of slapstick comedy..by mistake.

The Pink Panther cocktail is a splash-over from last weeks Cancer Awareness Week. We were not "aware" this was a submission until we were made aware of it and so here it is...in all its glory. Plus, when something is so good, you make it twice? Yeah. And, no, it doesn't taste like pepto-bismol (Bismuth subsalicylate)
