Tuesday Afternoon Quickie: Boiled Espresso

The Great 40 Experiment – Mickey’s

Steampunk

We’re pretty sure Mickey’s Fine Malt Liquor has a typo in its name. “Mickey’s Fine Malt Liquor.” We’re at least 90 percent sure that should read “Fine. Malt liquor!” You can hear the desperation on the label. Now, our knowledge of Mickey’s is a little more in-depth than Colt 45. After all, Mickey’s was the […]

The Great 40 Experiment – Day One

After all, it works every time.

There are many questions that stand the test of time. These are quandaries that last eon after eon, being debated by the greatest minds each generation has to offer. “Are we alone in the universe?” “Is there a God?” “Can morality really be treated as something that’s a part of the natural world, or have […]

UV Sugar Crush Vodka – It’s bad!

chemical_vodka

You know, we’ve broken rank with the cocktail illuminati (cockillati?) on several occasions. Most noticeably on the whole “flavored vodka” thing. You see, most who mix (or at least mix well) find flavored vodkas anathema to the idea of a well-made cocktail. They’re often over-flavored, sugary pieces of treacle that are barely recognizable as their […]

Asia: More Rum than the Caribbean

Which to drink first? (Pro Tip: Both.)

The Caribbean tends to get the lion’s share of attention when it comes to rum. I mean really, it does make quite a bit of sense if you take the time to really dig down in and look at it. The Caribbean is the fertile crescent of rum. Much like man is thought to have drug himself into being in eastern Africa, so rum heaved itself out of the hodgepodge of cultures that had poured into the “New World.”

The Dichotomy of Kansas Springs

Dichotomy (we moved the bottle to see the level of dust being kicked up)

Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Zephyr. It has been brutally windy the past four days here at Cocktails, 365 headquarters. So windy, in fact, that we’ve been making the news. I spoke with a colleague in California this afternoon who said the name Dodge City actually sauntered across their consciousness […]

George Dickel White Corn Whisky #1

If you only Jack, you don't know Dick... el...

There’s something special about moonshine. It’s the purest form of the liquid we’ve all come to adore so much. Unadulterated, unfettered, it’s the virgin expression of the base spirit that we all strive for. At least when it’s done right. If not, it’s a screaming hellfire on earth that leaves you dying among the bushes, […]
