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...

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...

The Fire Whip, smells a bit like a candle store--Jennifer thought it smelled like a doctors office. Not sure where that comes from, but we think the cinnamon is the big aroma on the Fire Whip. The shooter itself has a little different flavor than a standard shot of fireball and a leaves a slight numbing feeling with a delayed whipped cream finish.

Today we taste Gentleman Jack and compare it to the lower end product, Jack Daniels to see if we can find the differences and why you'd want to pay additional for Gentleman Jack over the other products.

The Spicy 'Nana's is a fireball meetings the yellow runt banana, great 1 cent candy store shot. There is some back end alcohol action which is common with anything utilizing 99 bananas, but the flavor does seem like it could be some mix of a Willy Wonka recipe if Wonka used a neutral grain spirit to infuse his candy.

Submitted as a Thanksgiving cocktail, but this cocktail can fit many seasons. In any case, it's got Jagermeister Spice and that's all that really matters! We build it both ways, shaken and stirred to try to figure out which one tastes better (if there is any difference at all). And, it tastes a bit like a rumchata / carrot cake.

If you can find the Las Vegas Distillery's Nevada Whiskey, it's definitely worth a try. At around USD $35, it's smooth and silky texture with light approachable feel commands a bit higher of a price from the more rough lower end whiskies.

As Jeff Foxworthy would say, if you like this cocktail, you might be a redneck. Not really true, this is just a really easy drinking cocktail creation. The redneck iced tea doesn't taste a bit like tea, but has lots of raspberry appeal.
