Kinky Liqueur Review

post icon

We love Halloween and this years celebration was no exception.  There maybe no better time of year other than perhaps Valentine’s Day to be a little bit kinky.  I mean when else can you dress up like a Bavarian beer wench or a stripper and no-one even bats an eyelash.  In fact, you could almost say that it’s expected.  Speaking of kinky and dressing up, Kinky Liqueur has paired with Kinky Boots, a Broadway bound … Read more

Hiram Walker Whipped Cream Review

post icon

We are lucky at DOTW to try the newest, hippest and edgy spirits and liqueurs.  Often, I am not quite sure what to expect.  Occasionally I am blown away – sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way.  Other times, I am pleasantly surprised.  I will admit that when the bottle of Hiram Walker Whipped, I wasn’t quite sure what to think.  However, I am happy to report that this was one of … Read more

Zombie – Don the Beachcomer 1934

post icon

If you love Tiki Drinks like we do, this is one of the grandaddies of the genre. Created by Don the Beachcomer in 1934, the recipe was top secret.  Don even instituted a two Zombie limit to keep the competition from figuring it out. Maybe it could have been that they were really strong as well!

The recipe we have here was adapted by Tiki Historian Jeff Barry for his book, Sippin’ Safari, a must … Read more

Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka Review

post icon

Fall has arrived!  While I generally a bit depressed by the arrival of the cold weather and the end of summer, the one thing that I look forward to is pumpkin season.  Like Richard Cristy of the Howard Stern Show, I love all things pumpkin.  According to the New Yorker, “pumpkin is the new black”.  Needless to say, we were very excited when a bottle of Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie vodka arrived at our doorstep just … Read more

Halloween is not only pumpkin-carving time; it’s also pumpkin drinking time! (But please … finish with that carving knife and put it away before you hit the sauce.)

Whether you use pumpkin spice liqueur, pumpkin spice mix, pumpkin purée or a combination, Autumn’s iconic orange vegetable (or is it a fruit?) is a welcome addition to the cocktail mixer.

Now time to mix!

Here are Drink of the Week’s top picks for Halloween pumpkin cocktails:… Read more

Zombies Are Hot This Halloween

post icon

Thanks to The Walking Dead, zombies are this year’s vampires. And that is saying something. So, what could be better this Halloween than dressing up as a zombie and serving up some Zombie cocktails? You couldn’t have a hotter theme for this year’s Halloween party.

According to the Dave Wondrich, the professor of liquid libations, the Zombie is an old drink. It was allegedly invented by Don the Beachcomber in the 1930s to provide … Read more

21st Century “Soda” Jerk Off

post icon

The Tempest Bar in San Francisco was the site a Jerk Off competition, a Soda Jerk competition.  Given the sad decline of the soda fountain in the United States, we can only imagine that it was the first soda competition that has happened since the 1950’s when soda fountains were in there full glory.  We can only hope that the Jerk Off is a harbinger of things to come because the sodas at the Jerk … Read more

The weekend belongs to the Blue Angels, the Navy’s crack pilot team that displays the death defying skills of the military’s avionic heroes. And, wow are they impressive.
