How can you go wrong with a nice and bubbly champagne cocktail?  The weather is starting to turn for the better and I couldn’t think of another drink that could compliment that change.  Add a little lime and raspberry, and kick it up a notch with some vodka, and you have yourself a great beverage […]

Tawny port is becoming a favorite mixer of mine of late, especially with cocktails whose base is whiskey.  This ingredient complements whiskey, no matter what kind, very well.  Buy itself, I am kind of skeptical about it.  Way too thick for me.  I am not much of a port or sherry drinker anyway, so I […]

We, as consumers have become spoiled and, to make a much finer point, have become lazy due to the many already flavored spirits on the shelves today.  So many types of these, in fact, that it is humanly impossible to fit all of them in one room.  In my opinion, it has become overwhelming to […]

We already know that bourbon is a great stand-alone, on the rocks or even neat.  But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t dress it up every once in a while.  Sometimes it’s nice to know you can have something a little different without having to change the spirit you enjoy.  At least that’s my opinion […]

I don’t know about you, but just thinking about the stock market makes me want to have a good stiff drink.  We have become a society where this not only is a gauge of how the economy is going, it is how big business reacts, or what I like to call “knee-jerks”, on if they […]

Here’s another rum cocktail, this time using maraschino liqueur to give it a nice essence.  A great tropical enhanced beverage that will have everyone wanting seconds.  Another attribute is the glass that is called for when drinking this cocktail – a cocktail glass.   We will be serving this chilled and strained, or “up”.  This […]

Rye whiskey is becoming my favorite mixing spirit for one strong fact.  It blends well with many things when done so when the secondary ingredients are done sparingly.  The rye flavor of the whiskey tends to jump right out at you, and shares the stage nicely with other ingredients, bringing out their finest attributes as […]

Here’s a nice whiskey cocktail you can build directly in the glass you will be drinking out of.  No shaking, stirring or straining on this one.  Just make sure to stir it nicely after you’re done building it. One thing about whiskey is that many are afraid to venture out further than your simple tonic, […]

Dry vermouth has become a standard in many “up” gin cocktails, but usually is used as a secondary ingredient.  Many use it to only   layer a chilled glass, just giving you a hint of its flavor to complement the main performer.  In fact, the most famous cocktail using gin, the martini, starting out as […]
