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 […]

Curaçao Punch

Curaçao Punch

As you can tell from the picture, this is a behemoth of a drink, and you really don’t want to be drinking several of these in a row. It will murder you. Figuratively and literally. It’s very good though, and very good for an afternoon spent with friends and family.

Equal parts delightful and frustrating because it offers no preparation tips – just ingredients.

The Derby

The Derby

May 12, 2013 (Day 4) – Gin Crusta Every time Mother’s Day comes around we mull over whether or not we’ll do a special cocktail. It’s not because we don’t love our mothers. In fact, my wife and I are both exceedingly fond of our own mothers and grandmothers. They’ve been confidants, supporters, and friends […]

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 […]

Zodiac Vodka Part Two (Cocktails): Naranja

While in high school I took two years of French. In college, I took three years of Spanish. And yet, as a twenty-something I speak jack shit aside from English. Maybe some Yiddish. And I’m really not even speaking English all that well to begin with. As such, when I should be able to wow bystanders with […]

Knickerbein Cocktail


June 30, 2011 (Day 93) — Knickerbein Cocktail What the hell is Knickerbein? A Knickebein is German for “crooked leg.” Perhaps this is an Anglicization bastardization of that word. Damned if we know. It’s this drink. Knickerbein Cocktail 3/4 oz Orange Curacao liqueur 3/4 oz maraschino liqueur 3/4 oz VS cognac 1 oz eggs Serve […]
