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...

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).
