Laphroaig 10 Year Part Two: Dry Rob Roy

Because the Laphroaig does offer up such a unique flavor profile, it only seems fair to feature in a cocktail that really focuses on the quality and flavor of the scotch as opposed to any complex mixing styles. The Rob Roy (or, essentially a Manhattan with scotch) really puts the Laphroaig 10 Year front and […]

Laphroaig 10 Year Part One: Taste Test

There are those who claim that the mere act of mixing a cocktail is an affront to the liquor that’s being used to mix. Doubly so for single malt scotches. However, we like say “screw tradition” and there are some great single malts out there that make excellent bases. We’ve proven in the past that […]

ORIGINAL — KellyBronze

January 12, 2012 (Day 289) — KellyBronze If my Google-Fu serves me correctly, the KellyBronze is a type of turkey from Scotland. So, naturally, this is a combination of scotch whiskies with the Wild Turkey 81. Blasphemy for some, but we stand by our controversial decision. KellyBronze 1.5 oz Wild Turkey 81 1 oz Bruichladdich […]

ORIGINAL — Tropical Scotsman

November 21, 2011 (Day 237) — Tropical Scotsman What happens when you do a Google image search for “Tropical Scotsman”? Total goddamned insanity, that’s what. And naturally, as per the rules of the Interwebs, once you take the safe search off, there will always be hardcore pornography on the first page of results. Because this […]

Smokey Robinson

November 9, 2011 (Day 225) — Kanza Quick history lesson. Kansas (my home state and the home base of Cocktails, 365) is named after the Kanza indian tribe. This cocktail really has nothing to do with the Kanzas. Which is a shame, really, because it’s part of the state’s history. It just seemed like a […]

ORIGINAL — Fairy Godfather

October 14, 2011 (Day 199) — Fairy Godfather This is the first image that pops up when you do a Google image search for “Fairy Godfather.” For the love of God, just don’t take SafeSearch off. Trust us on this. There’s a whole other level of depravity on the interwebs. Although, that really shouldn’t surprise […]

Breaking Brandy

September 22, 2011 (Day 177) — Breaking Brandy Brandy by its very nature can be a tough liquor to harness. However, once you realize the qualities of it, any entire new world of possibilities opens up, and it becomes an incredibly versatile spirit to mix with. Breaking Brandy takes the burnt wine flavor and takes […]

ORIGINAL — Soft Scotsman

September 10, 2011 (Day 165) — Soft Scotsman For the love of God, whatever you do, don’t Google “Soft Scotsman.” Mainly, because nothing really much comes up. But you know, The Scotsman from “Samurai Jack” was a pretty bad ass fellow. Let’s put up a picture of him instead. This is also applicable: Soft Scotsman […]


July 19, 2011 (Day 113) — Godson The Godfather is an excellent cocktail that mixes scotch with Amaretto to give you a brusque but sweet cocktail. This is a personal variation of the classic. Godson 2 oz Fireball Cinnamon Whisky 2 oz Blended Scotch 1 oz Amaretto Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass filled […]
