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...

The Irish Wake, what makes it Irish? The only thing we can think of is the high amount of alcohol and the stereotype that Irish know how to drink (they do have a holiday named after it after all).

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?

The Stone Ricky is a light and refreshing gin-based cocktail that even non-gin drinkers will want to try. The sour combination with orange juice (seen in almost all 'stoned sour' cocktails) brings both taste and aroma without going overboard. A great beach sipper, pool side refresher, this cocktail keeps it flavorful without having to rely too much on crazy amounts of alcohol. You'll be able to sip on a few of these before having to worry about the alcohol going to your head.

Benedictine meets flaming orange, two of Ian's favorite things! This cocktail utilizes gin, but the real focus is on the herbal liqueur Benedictine, even though it's one of the least quantities on the recipe card, it's the one with the most distinct flavor.

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.

It is Monday and we need to really get a little pick-me-up and ok.- energy drink is the caffeine of choice. After a long week, the ok.- rum punch is designed to relax but also give you a bit of a pep in your step.

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.

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.

Today we make a cocktail that tastes a bit like breakfast even thought it has Jameson in it. The butterscotch is nice, the flavor of breakfast minus the bacon, but there is a bit of smokey flavor profile going on, but we're not sure why. Easy to make, flavorful shot, make it and tells us what you think.

The Green Thumb is definitely green with a bit of foam on the top, submitted by Alfredo... but now I'm hungry for some pasta. The alcohol balance is very good in this drink, there might almost be too good of a balance. No one ingredient overpowers the Green Thumb, if anything there is a bit of an ethanol draw on the back of the finish. This is much like a fancy screwdriver cocktail.
