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...

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...
Always an interesting combination when bringing absinthe and peppermint together in a cocktail combination. The Glad Eye cocktail can also add a bit of water to dilute down further if the ice doesn't do it enough. Cu...

This cocktail isn't as sweet as a hard cider here in the US. Our basic "Apple Cider" is non-alcoholic. This is a simple cocktail design, easy to build and explore on your face; use your favorite cider. The flavor profile of apple cider and cinnamon toast combined.

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.

Nice almond flavor within the Ruby Booty, with a very cherry focused drink. Both a dark cherry juice from our cherry juice (Luxardo), plus the distilled cherry flavor of the Luxardo Maraschino. This is definitely a sweeter drink, I couldn't toss too many of these back but Jennifer said she could definitely drink a few of these without any issues.

The Pirate Sunrise uses some new grenadine we just recently got from Liber & Co and should give you a bit of a "sunrise" effect. But, being that it has Spiced Rum, it's a pirate sunrise instead!

Today we checkout the new Captain Morgan 1671 Limited Edition and do a little comparison on flavor against their prior Limited Edition, Sherry Cask. Save a bottle of both Limited for your special occasions because they are definitely being played up as limited. It wasn't a marketing ploy to get you to buy sooner...it really is limited.

A beautiful classic meets new aged cocktail taking the love of a whiskey sour to the caribbean for an adventure. Whiskey Sour in the front, caribbean cocktail in the back. Easy sipping drink that still gives you that bourbon feel and that rum vacation.

People continue to ask what our favorite spiced rum happens to be and they want to know what they should buy at the store. We can give them our favorite labels or we can sit down and figure it out the right way, in a blind tasting to see what we actually like (all labels aside).

Keep Calm and Drink On. Today we make the Rum Crusta Swizzle which is the first time we've really been excited about Maraschino Liqueur. Light, flavorful and covered with a neat combination of flavors that creates a new flavor profile, not calling out any single spirit or flavor as the highlight of the game.

There is plenty of room for interpretation of the mamajuana recipe because, frankly, I've yet to find a true single recipe that defines the island-based product. For the price, at or around USD $14.99, it's not a huge risk on taste so I encourage you to give it a try and let us know what you think.
