We take a bit of Pow Wow Rye and build a cocktail with some organic apple juice. This is a simple cocktail creation that is perfect for the holidays, perhaps something good for before, during or after Thanksgiving. ...
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...

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...
Obviously some fans like to watch Derrick suffer and Ian excel at drinking extremely quickly. So, we have Kraken in the Deep, a cocktail with Mike's Hard Blood Orange and Kraken in a "depth charge" style event. Aside...

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...

The southern redberry, a 'ruby red grapefruit' colored drink with lots of dry and odd sour flavor. Neither of us really cared for the flavor profile, although with a bit of Orinoco bitters, we were able to balance it out a bit better. Both of us agree that the sweetness could be a bit better, the red bull isn't helping too much. This drink makes you thirsty.

Today we dial back our cocktail history to some of the very first "cocktail" designs. These historic cocktails aren't going to be the most awesome, but they're what people used to drink back in the day when rum was just becoming popular. This is what you should think of when someone says "grog", but of course that's not what we think of today. Now, when you look back at where cocktails came from you can see how they've improved over time.

The coco cooler cocktail, it's like a lightly sweet caramel soda with a bit of angostura mid-palate with a "suntan lotion" like coconut rum finish. This cocktail will liven up your coke experience (if it's the soda type).

The Sloppy Joe's Mojito, a classic 1940's mojito recipe which should use the Sloppy Joe's rum but we can't get it so we're using the next best thing, Captain Morgan White Rum! Why? Because it's awesome. This cocktail fits the pool side "lime water" alternative, it's not strong but not too much mint.

Today we create what could be the best drink of the summer, simply an amazing flavor, balance and taste. If you like a slightly ginger zing and a bit of a dry aftertaste with a nice sweet cherry start, this drink is definitely something to put the work into with the puree.

Doug has to spill a bit because, that's just what he does and Daddy's Pear Juice is no different. Today, though, we create a cocktail with Xanté Pear Liqueur along with a few other cool spirits.

Today we create Fragrant Pear and we ask the question of the day, give us some questions of the day. This recipe seems to follow the classic style while being a bit new aged and remaining fragrant and powerful.

Today we break down the IBA version of the Dark 'N' Stormy cocktail with Goslings Black Seal rum. We also try out the canned version of Goslings Dark 'N' Stormy against the IBA recipe (and just see what it tastes like in General).

Sometimes a cocktail's main ingredient is sweeter, usually when its primary spirit is a bit overwhelming (like Cruzan Black Strap). Strange name, strange creation, sweet cocktail.

Coconut and sweet elderflower with a bit of sour to help balance it out; the bitters play an awesome role
