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...

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...

The classic shandy isn't just beer and lemonade, it's a bit different and a bit more unique and dynamic. The classic shandy utilizes a hybrid of beer (ale) and ginger beer with an additional citrus. You can still utilize your favorite recipe, but this will make you feel like you were drinking 1800's style!

A cocktail that brings the passion in passion fruit by utilizing the great brand B.G Reynolds to create a design that is both tart and slightly sweet, but definitely has the passion fruit tart that you get from some styles of passion fruit.

The Green Beret, a cocktail Curtis designed for a Lucid cocktail competition. If you're looking for an absinthe drink that doesn't put absinthe direct in your face constantly, perhaps this is your drink. This was the second rendition of the cocktail design that had much less absinthe contribution yet still keeps it in the drink flavor profile.

A warm cocktail for our Tuesday, this cocktail brings some sweetness from the cardamom-clove simple syrup yet keeps the apple cider profile and hides the bourbon well within this design.

A cocktail with cold tea, that's something we've not done in awhile. The Irish Poet is a Royal Rose recipe using their Rose Simple Syrup. The Irish Poet is like a poem that dances upon the tongue with subtle flavor notes, a bit of an herbal tea draw and a nice light rose finish.

Today we create a classic whiskey sour, in a coupe with bourbon cherries. This whiskey sour recipe is quite excellent and you'll be hard pressed to find one that's better we think.

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.

While we've done the IBA version of this cocktail, it's not really anything like this recipe, that Between The Sheets recipe was more like a lemonade while this one is more herbal flavored sour with Benedictine. This build is still a bit sour much like the IBA version of Between the Sheets, but much less rum-flavored and probably a little less boozy compared to the other we have done.

The easy tasting flavor that has an ice tea appeal, color and lack of intense alcohol flavor. The cocktail doesn't have too much additional alcohol over many other cocktails, but it still brings a good 3 oz. in a single drink. The Long Island Iced Tea doesn't hurt a person, it's the follow up request that starts to cause the hurt.

This recipe, submitted by Søren in Denmark, a derivative of a Don Beach Comber recipe with Horror Infused Bitters. This recipe totally play's in the tiki realm quite well, with a bit of a Horror Infused Mai Tai feel but with a completely different set of ingredients.
