Angler Cocktail

The Angler Cocktail falls under a similar umbrella for several of the drinks we’ve already mixed – heady, bitter, and powerful. And also – brown.


Molinero Lite

Can you make a decent beertail with crappy beer? We try and (kind of) succeed!

Bitters and Soda

It has been a long, long time since we’ve mixed up a mocktail for our daily update. However, the past several nights I’ve been snuggled up reading Brad Thomas Parsons’ outstanding history of aromatic bitters with wild visions of homemade bitters floating through our heads. And with us coming from a three-day weekend that is […]


The Springheel takes George Dickel’s white corn whisky, combines it with the bite of grapefruit, and lightens it up for a perfect spring tipple.

Fernet Branca Menta Review

Among the greatest tragedies of the modern cocktail world is most mint flavored things are like Kool cigarettes – enticingly affordable but sure to permanently taint your mouth.

The Dichotomy of Kansas Springs

Young Man

August 27, 2013 (Day 110) – Young Man The creepily-named young man is a slightly modified version of the original drink that first garnered the name “Cocktail.” It’s a spirit and bitters. More or less. 3 oz brandy 1 oz French (dry) vermouth 1 dash angostura bitters 2 dashes orange curaçao Combine all the ingredients […]


August 25, 2013 (Day 107) – Whiz-Bang The term Whiz-Bang first showed up in the popular vernacular (or, at least as far linguists can tell) around 1915. It’s used to describe a “one that is conspicuous for noise, speed, excellence, or startling effect.” It also re-entered the lexicon around the 1960s when The Music Man […]
