Episode #094 – Coffee Cocktails

While we don’t always suggest mixing caffeine and alcohol (Red Bull & Vodka is on the permanent “no way” list), coffee offers an intriguing flavor partner to many drinks. From vermouth to Amari, to all sorts of brown liquors, there’s a lot to offer.

Episode #087 – Frozen Cocktails

While a slushie machine is *probably* impractical for the home bartender, frozen drinks are fantastic for hot summer days. The great thing about Frozen cocktails for the home bartender is that you can experiment/hide mistakes easily.

Episode #079 – Being a Better Bar Patron

Are you a good bar-attender? There are a few unofficial (and sometimes official) rules to be a good bar patron. We gathered these from friends who have worked as bartenders and servers in all ranges of bars, from fine craft cocktail establishments to dive bars.

Episode #066 – Fernet Branca Cocktails

With Fernet Branca measurement is key. When a recipe calls for a bar spoon of it a second bar spoon may make the drink unpalatable to all but the most bitter-loving friends you’ve got. So be careful. And the recipes–well, we could probably post hundreds of them, but we’ll stick to some of our favorites. Our suggestion is to go out and buy a bottle–almost always less than $30–and try it. It’s going to be an acquired taste, but we promise, there is a big payoff once you get there. Enjoy!
