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 […]

Laphroaig Part Two: Bantam

As we near the amateur hockey season (which is the highlight, as the NHL appears to be on its way to another lockout) you’ll forgive us if our minds turn to the ice and all that comes with the best sport on ice. Or, if you ask us, it’s more the best sport ever. So, […]

Zacapa Highball

Having made two different cocktails with the Zacapa so far, we decided it was about time to create something a little more simple. You see, having drank the Zacapa neat, there are some excellent notes and complexities in the rum’s flavor. While the other mixed drinks have been good, our biggest complaint is that the […]

January 2, 2012 (Day 279) — Storm Clouds Today’s drink is a slightly altered Dark n’ Stormy; one of our favorite summer drinks to make. The coconut flavor of the black rum gives it some more complex notes, making it an excellent sipping drink. Storm Clouds 3 oz Malibu Black Rum 1 oz lime cordial […]

December 21, 2011 (Day 267) — Christmas in the Isles So, it looks like we may actually be having a white Christmas for the first time in several years. This is pretty awesome, as it’s sometimes hard to get into the Christmas spirit when it’s 60 degrees out and sunny. But, the winds ands snow […]

December 17, 2011 (Day 263) — Dominick If you haven’t already, we urge you to take the Moscow Mule out for a test drive. It’s one of the most refreshing cocktails you can ever have. So we’re going to make a leap and adjust this cocktail for the Holiday season. Now, you also have to […]

May 31, 2011 (Day 64) — Mule Kick While Cocktails, 365 was in Lawrence, Kansas this past week, we had the pleasure of tasting the Moscow Mule at Bird Dog Bar near campus.  While we’ve always been fond of Moscow Mules, the bartenders at Bird Dog served up the perfectally balanced mule. So naturally after […]

Mamie Taylor

scotch

November 2, 2010 (Day 276) — Mamie Taylor I’m slowly starting to discover that there really are some great scotch-based cocktails out there. Now, I will fully admit they are few and far between, as scotch is (as I’ve mentioned countless times before) a drink best savored in and of itself. So, I figured I’d […]

Kentucky Mule (Plus Black Maple Hill Bourbon Review)

BLACKMAPLE

October 6, 2010 (Day 249) — Kentucky Mule It’s always flattering to try out a certain brand to help a business decide if they would like to carry it or not. This week’s featured booze is Black Maple Hill Bourbon — a small-batch bourbon that can actually be a little tricky to track down. Tasted […]

September 30, 2010 (Day 243) — Fall in Cuba I’m in the mood for a solid fall drink after returning home from a long week of meetings. We’ll take a play off the classic Old Cuban, which we made a while back. The Old Cuban used champagne, but since it’s fall we’re going to use […]
