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 those times that I was pleasantly surprised. Hiram Walker Whipped was incredibly pleasant and adds a nice flair to cocktails. There is also something warm and toasty about the Whipped that almost makes me look forward to Fall.

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

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.

Needless to say, we were very excited when a bottle of Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie vodka arrived at our doorstep just in time for Halloween and Thanksgiving. My only request is that they ratchet up its pumpkintude.

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.

Farm to bottle with Grey Goose

post icon

I was recently immersed in the story and process of creating Grey Goose Vodka. I am sure you are thinking at home, “creating vodka is simple, why tell us about it?” Admittedly, that was kind of my initial reaction. What are they going to show me but a huge industrial distillery and some slick marketing.
