Tuesday Afternoon Quickie: Boiled Espresso

Mmmmmmm... coffee...

It’s Tuesday and cold weather has inexplicably steamrolled into western Kansas. Here’s a drink that’s just as good in cool weather as in hot. This is a modified version of the classic Boilermaker. Boiled Espresso 2 oz Van Gogh Double Espresso (ice-cold) 16 oz coffee stout (we used Fuel Café Coffee Stout) Combine ingredients in […]

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 […]

Diva’s Lament

Diva's Lament Preperation

For the past several seasons, Cocktails, 365 has been honored to be the official mixologist of the Depot Theater Company and Imbibe! at the Depot Theater Company in Dodge City. We take our duty of making paired cocktails quite seriously. It’s all part of the upper level service people can expect when they come to […]

Moonlight Lemonade

Moonlight Lemonade in Afternoon Sun

There’s something really beautiful about simple things combined to create something greater than their individual parts. Chocolate and peanut butter. Donuts and bacon. Cagney and Lacey. Among the best is moonshine and lemonade. Specifically, being all highfalutin and mixing moonshine with San Pellegrino Limonata for today’s cocktail. Perfect after a long hard day mowing the lawn […]

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 […]

One Shade of Grey

One Shade of Grey

Yeah, we went with a lazy 50 Shades of Grey pun. Sorry. No one ever said we weren’t lazy here at Cocktails, 365. Ambitious, sure. Lazy, even more so. This cocktail takes a bit of time and the right amount of balance, so be sure you’re paying attention to quantities while mixing, and not just […]

Wasabi and Ginger

Wasabi and Ginger

We’ve reviewed Oddka Wasabi Vodka – a bizarre little bit of booze that has a strong wasabi flavor without the “oh my god, I’m going to die” of trying to drink actual wasabi. We’re taking some of the recipes that Oddka recommends and switching them up a bit to our own tastes. As the vodka […]
