Prego Enferrujado

Prego Enferrujado ®2015 Mark Vierthaler/Cocktails, 365

This variation of the Rusty Nail uses a single malt Islay (we like Ardbeg 10) in place of the recommended blended scotch, giving it a heavier, smokier flavor, and adds just a bit of Tawny port to deepen the sweetness and add a few more layers of flavor.

Beertails tend to not get the lion’s share of attention. They tend to be difficult, and for the most part, beer is ready to drink by itself. However, every once in a while you come across a beer that’s just begging to be mixed. Rogue Brewery’s Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry, and Chocolate ale is just […]

When we’re reviewing new liquors we always like to head over to the distiller’s website to see how they recommend their spirits be served. It would usually serve to reason that they would offer some pretty great drinks, as they are the ones that have the closest hands in the product from start finish. However, […]

Ethereal

We’re mixing with the reposado Casa Noble today, so when mixing with a heavier tequila (or any heavier liquor) it’s best to remember that balance is the key. The Ethereal takes some of the sweeter notes and turns this into a borderline dessert cocktail, but it’s salvage by the quinine tang of the tonic. 3 […]

French Oak

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.
