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.

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.

This may be the best daiquiri you'll ever make in your lives, so pay attention. The classic Daiquiri is a simple drink but the balance of ingredients plays a huge part given the simplicity of the recipe. In this version of the classic, we're also adding a pinch of salt to really connect the flavors and bring out some of the beauty of the daiquiri.

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.

The Captain Morgan Espresso Martini has both captain morgan (or spiced rum) and espresso (coffee) which we have also included. It's all in a martini glass, so you have that going for you.

This cocktail brings on the sweet pineapple flavor with a little rich dark flavors hidden within its taste. The dark rum is well hidden and offers no real burn factor as you sip. A great concept for a sweet-forward punch. If you're a fan of pineapple juice, if you like sweeter drinks than this is the punch you may want to be drinking. It is simple in design and does not require too many ingredients to hunt down.

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 Clover Rose is a spectacular cocktail designed by the folks at the Wild Hibiscus Flower Company using their new concentrate called Rose+Hibiscus. If you like the aroma of rose peddles this cocktail may blow your mind. Now that we created it, this might make a fabulous Valentine's day cocktail in a few months. The aroma is awesome, the flavor is strikingly well balanced with a creamy texture that's not too sweet and not too sour.

Jane Daniels, you know, the opposite of Jack Daniels. And, coincidentally, it has jack Daniels in it so... time to get rowdy! If you don't care for Jack Daniel straight, you can add a bit of sugar to Jack Daniels and a bit of cinnamon and BOOM. In some ways, it tastes like Fireball whiskey with a lot less cinnamon. It's not bright pink and there isn't a sparkler hanging out of it, so this is a man drink!
