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.

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, […]

Zephyrus

Zephyrus

We’re continuing to mix with the Brugal rum this week, which is a unique little piece of Dominican goodness – an extra dry white rum that hits all the right notes of rum, but takes on an almost whiskey like quality. Today’s cocktail is simple; a play off the classic Dark n’ Stormy traditionally made […]
