We create the cran-apple martini using our Omega NC800HDS to crush some frozen cranberries. The key here, warm your cranberries before you juice them to get more juice from them, otherwise you get more slushy cranberr...
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 ...

A twist on the "traditional" three wise men cocktail, but with something a bit more Mexican...tequila. With or without tequila, we still can't recommend this insanity. But, that doesn't mean we won't do it.

The little death shooter uses Tres Generaciones Anejo Tequila, you can try it with whatever you have available if you have anejo or another aged tequila. Worst case, just use silver as this is a "shot" of anejo (which is typically a sipping product).

Today we take a look at Jose's Limited-Edition product, Tradicional Reposado. This product, often found in the sub-$30 price category represents Jose's rested line of products, fitting just above the Jose Tradicional Silver and far above the gross Especial mixto.

We have very few recipes with Lychee as a component, so Crouching Tiger played into our Lychee Vodka that we purchased many moons ago. If anything, the Blanco Tequila perhaps is the "hidden dragon" in this drink. Ian gets mainly tequila, Derrick gets mainly lychee, what flavors do you get?

The Purple Gecko, turns out not so purple because we forgot the 1 oz. of Cranberry Juice. So, if you do that perhaps you'll get a nice purple and a bit more dryness in the flavor profile. In many ways, this tastes much like a standard margarita, but it could use a bit of agave nectar to go into that direction. In other ways, once cranberry juice is added, you're closer to that of the Pink Cadillac Margarita.

Our second red bull cocktail of the week (since we had a can we might as well use all of it). The Bullfrog tries to duplicate the works of a Long Island iced tea but brings in curacao and a half can of red bull. Will it hold up with all those ingredients and no juice to balance out the sharp alcohols and energy drink?

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.

The Hearts of POM cocktail utilizes POM Wonderful to generate a pink drink for breast cancer awareness week (for the month of October). This drink has a slightly salty tequila flavor along side the off-dry pomegranate finish. Imagine a pomegranate margarita and Hearts of POM fits the category. Question of the day, favorite tequila-based cocktail?

We create this cocktail based off a live stream participant, Matthias coming up with the recipe. We had one show left to tape after the bloody mary contest so we pulled right from the live stream fans.

One of the more highly requested cocktail recipes, it is right up there with the Long Island Iced Tea. The Adios Motherfucker, A.M.F or AMF cocktail is constantly being searched for because of its crazy mysterious ingredients. Okay, it's not that crazy, you're looking at about the same design as the Long Island Ice Tea with blue curacao and no triple sec (with citrus soda instead of coke).
