At the recent Nightclub & Bar Conference in Las Vegas, I had the pleasure to attend a seminar lead by Georg Riedel. What a treat, not only did I learn firsthand from a master about fine glassware and how it enhances all types of spirits but I learned how the Reidel family figured it all out. Said Greog to my question, “We’ve been doing this a long time.” And they have the family-run Austrian company … Read more

Tried the Three Rivers Cocktail on a recent trip to NYC, although it hails from Canada. We recommend using Canadian Whiskey, but you can fake if their is none on hand. The addition of the other two “rivers” Dubonnet, a wine based aperitif flavored with herbs, and Triple Sec. This give the drink a bit of spicy sweetness In Quebec it would be called the Trois Rivieres.… Read more
Some people are paying thousands of dollars for vintage scotch. And scientists say a lot of it is fake. (Well, it’s real scotch … just faked to seem old.)
How can they tell? Easy. Scotch made after 1950 has more radioactive particles due to the proliferation of nuclear bomb testing.

“So far there have probably been more fakes among the samples we’ve tested than real examples of old whisky.”
The technique the scientists use is

In preparation for the Kentucky Derby, I’ve created a cocktail named after the top contender—Regal Ransom.
This drink accentuates some of the bourbon’s undertones. Mixing bourbon with a syrup of honey and pears brings out the spirit’s sweeter side. The tea and lemon balance the sweetness and compliment the oaky qualities of the bourbon. Overall, this cocktail lets the bourbon shine through while still giving you something light and refreshing.… Read more
Bourbon on a stick, anyone?
The folks at Lollyphile in San Francisco “put some sweetness in the sour mash” to provide the world with bourbon lollipops.
The company also makes absinthe lollipops. (As well as maple bacon pops. Bacon is second only to booze, people.)
Buy 4 for $10 … or 36 for $52!
This is inspiring me to experiment with some boozy lollipop recipes myself.
Lollyphile (via Liqurious)… Read more

Well, here … Read more
