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...

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.
