Whether it’s a tip from experts, sharing recipes or highlight cocktails, we’re shaking (or stirring) things up.

SPIRITfruit Clementine

This is really enjoyable and not hard to see why it’s their flagship drink. Worth a try and very flavorful.

Shipwreck Wreckers Coconut Club

The coconut isn’t overpowering in this cocktail and the flavors play well together. This is a nice blend and worth a try.

Zaddy’s Corpse Reviver

This gin cocktail brings some flavor but not for my taste buds. I can see gin lovers really enjoying this though.

Fling Mai Tai

This rum canned cocktail from the folks behind Boulevard Brewing is well balanced and I like that it’s 8% ABV.

Herb & Lou’s The Cooper

Taste Test: Herb & Lou’s The Cooper Infused Cocktail Cubes. These mixers are for their Blood Orange-Ginger Old Fashioned. You freeze the cubes, add one along with 1.5 oz of bourbon/rye then shake or stir.. It’s pretty simple but surprisingly tasty.

Wreckers Vanilla Creamsicle Rum Cocktail

Taste Test: Shipwreck Wreckers Vanilla Creamsicle. This ready-to-drink rum cocktail says it’s a blast from the past with an adult twist. If you enjoyed that popsicle back in the day, this might be what you’re looking for.

CoCo Vodka Cocktail

Taste Test: CoCo Vodka Original. This ready-to-drink cocktail is pretty straightforward with vodka and coconut water. The coconut really stands out and, if you’re not a coconut fan, this might not be for you.

Cinco de Mayo and summer cocktails worth a try

Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. It’s also a day many celebrate with drink. To help you find that perfect drink, we’ve got several cocktails that’ll hit the spot.

Gimlet Cocktail

In this Cocktail:30, we try out a gin classic the Gimlet (which has a vodka spin too). This recipe is 2 oz gin, .75 oz lime juice and .75 oz simple syrup into a shake with ice. Shake well, strain and enjoy.

I Gotta Crush and 3 more rum cocktails

Reality TV fan-favorite “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile works up a new cocktail recipe for the launch of Captain Morgan Cherry Vanilla. Plus, we give you three more recipes to try with this limited release.

Irish Cactus

In this Cocktail:30, we try out an Irish Cactus in celebration of St Patrick’s Day. This recipe is 1 oz tequila and 2 oz Irish cream liqueur into a glass with ice. Stir very well and enjoy.

How to use a cream liqueur in a cocktail

In this Cocktail:30 tip, Jake Sulek explains how one can use a cream liqueur beyond just putting it in your coffee and what types of cocktails to avoid with it.

Cocoa Woah Old Fashioned

In this Cocktail:30, we try out a Cocoa Woah Old Fashioned. This recipe is 2 oz chocolate whiskey and .5 oz curacao added to glass with ice and gently mixed for 10 seconds. Add 2 dashes of orange bitters (or to your liking) and stir gently and enjoy.

What is a cream liqueur?

In this Cocktail:30, Jake Sulek explains what a cream liqueur is (think Bailey’s). Plus, he talks about how long they last and a tip for refrigerating it.

Simple Margarita

In this Cocktail:30, we try out a Simple Margarita Recipe in honor of National Margarita Day. This recipe is 1.5 oz blanco/silver tequila, 1 oz triple sec, .75 oz lime juice and .25 oz simple syrup. Add all into a shaker with ice, shake until cold then strain into a rocks glass with ice.

Strawberry Cream & Bourbon

In this Cocktail:30, it’s a cocktail that’s great for any type of date night and one you can also do without the bourbon.

An Old Fashioned Lodge

In this Cocktail:30, it’s a beer mocktail that brings plenty of flavor and can be a cocktail too. There are multiple spins for this with either bourbon instead of Spiritless and everything else the same or finding a similar dark beer.

Hops Collins

In this Cocktail:30, it’s a beer mocktail that hits the spot and one we had several of. This also could easily be turned into a regular cocktail. Add 1 oz of Lyre’s NA White Cane Spirit, .5 oz simple syrup and .5 oz lemon juice to a shaker. Add ice and shake well. Top with 6 oz of Rightside Citrus Wheat. Cheers!

Nothing’s Brewing in the Tropics

In this Cocktail:30, it’s a mocktail spin for Dry January or really anytime. Add 6 oz of Athletic Brewing’s Tropical Sour, 2 oz of lemonade and 1 oz Seedlip Grove to a rocks glass. Add ice and stir well. This came together nicely and is worth the try. Cheers!
