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 Pomegranate Bourbon Special was designed by Derrick Schommer to take advantage of the California Fruit Wine Co's Pomegranate fruit wine. This mildly tart wine is 100% based on actual fruit (not grapes). Californi...

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)
