Made in drunken celebration of Sharknado 3 and tequila day, the sharknado 3 cocktail was invented by a fan of the movie. We think the movies are a bit silly but everyone has their own taste. Speaking of taste, everyo...
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...

Today we create an off-shoot of the long island iced tea which we've named The One Night Stand Long Island Iced Tea. Why? Because after consulting with Jaelithe and our live stream audience, the name fit the conversat...
The fourth edition of our blind tasting battlegrounds, and we've got tequila back for a second time. This time Siete Leguas goes up against Alma tequila and Tres Generaciones. Again, we don't know the other two brand...
Today we create a cocktail for Nicolas, one of our patreon supporters. Nicolas said he liked flips, liked chocolate, likes bourbon and boom, we got a cocktail! Jennifer designed this cocktail and, if you like a whisk...

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.

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
