May 23, 2011 — Spiced Jack No. 94 We’re trying out something a little bit new this week. Rather than combining the review of the best buy budget booze AND the first cocktail of the week, we’ll be divying up the review and the first cocktail so people who just want the review can read […]

The 008

May 22, 2011 (Day 55) — The 008 No one’s ever heard of Agent 008 — James Bond’s less fortunate super spy brother. Consider this the wusses version of a James Bond cocktail. It tastes good, but you’re not winning any manliness competitions by drinking it. The 008 2 oz Burnett’s Orange Cream Vodka 4 […]


May 21, 2011 (Day 54) — Mayday I know that May 21 isn’t technically Mayday. But it’s my wife’s birthday, and everything in our household usually circles around her birthday in May, like some blonde immovable object. Today’s drink is take off of a drink I made last year that became a summer staple — […]


May 20, 2011 (Day 53) — Darkside I was a Star Wars nerd growing up. Not that that’s really surprising to.. well.. anyone. That kid in the middle had long days of nerddom ahead. So naturally when I came across a cocktail called the Darkside I knew it had to include a lightsaber as garnish. […]

Mandarin Metropolitan

May 19, 2011 (Day 52) — Mandarin Metropolitan The Metropolitan cocktail is a lot like a Cosmopolitan.

Blue Whip

May 17, 2011 (Day 50) — Blue Whip Okay, we’re heading into day two with the Burnett’s Orange Cream vodka. Despite our initial reservations, it turns out that while not something you’d sip neat, it’s definitely a solid addition to a mixologist’s flavored vodka repertoire. And it’s affordable, so that means you can keep the […]

Orange Julius

May 16, 2011 (Day 49) — Orange Julius This week’s booze is something that I never thought I’d buy. It’s a Burnett’s. Burnett’s can be… rough… to say the least. They’re mostly famous for a quick drunk for people who aren’t too concerned about flavor. So, it was with some trepidation that I took some […]


May 15, 2011 (Day 48) — Steampunk Here’s another simple one for you to finish out the week. Steampunk 2 oz corn whiskey 1 oz sherry Wheat beer to top Combine the ingredients in a beer stein and serve over ice. Interesting, strong flavor that’s not for everyone.
