Bourbon and Baker brings Mixology to the Little Apple


Don’t let the location fool you. Cocktail culture is alive and well in the Midwest. Just look as far as Bourbon and Baker in Manhattan, Kansas for proof.

Purple Rose of the Desert Sage


Back on June 14, the cocktail world celebrated National Bourbon Day. We celebrated, too, but perhaps a bit too much.

3 Recipes for National Mojito Day


Today is one of the many plethora of holidays on the calendar, because we all know that there are few greater tragedies than an empty calendar square. We will never not look for an excuse to drink, however, so National (Insert Random Booze) Day is always welcome around Cocktails, 365. Of course we’ll have a […]

Three Cocktails for World Gin Day


The phrase “better letter than never” seems to truly define the Cocktails, 365 experience. We have these grand plans of involvement in major events in the cocktail movements of the day and then we promptly get involved with enjoying the event and not writing about it.

Viva Villa


Brilliant in its simplicity – the Viva Villa features tequila front and center with the remaining ingredients playing the Pips to the tequila’s Gladys Knight.

Deep Purple


The acai has a taste very similar to blueberry, and the lemon boosts the sweeter lemonade flavors from the Cruzan.
