This Mint & Watermelon Slushie with El Luchador Tequila is My Mexican Wrestler Personae as a Cocktail: El Zorro Loco!

It’s hot, guys. Real hot. Like crank up the AC and lie nekkid on top of the covers directly under the ceiling fan until that fiery orb in the sky chills the F out, kind of hot. But that’s summer! What are you gonna do? Drink. All. The. Frozen. Things. For starters…. All I’ve been […]

Cinco de Mayo with Blended Beer Margaritas!

We all like rooting for the underdog. Being popular and a huge success and knocking it out of the park all the time can be sooooo boring. But there’s a reason some things are as successful as they are – donuts, Paris, roses, Beyonce, waterfalls….MARGARITAS! They’ve earned their rightful place in this popularity contest we call life.

Tequila Sunrise Sparkler – A New Year’s Cocktail!

After some slight adjustments, these stunning muddlers are up on their site and ready to muddle all of your cocktails […]

Cinco de Mayo? Try the Vera Cruz!

Woops! Watch your step there, lady! And don’t go blaming falling ass first into a human-sized coupe glass on your broken ankle strap. That glass seems plenty large enough to avoid. And, all those rando bottles around you? We can see those, booze goggles! Get it together, girl! Like Saint Patrick’s Day in the states, Cinco de […]

The Brighton Beachcomber

This amazingly refreshing tequila cocktail is another one of my all time favorites and so it was, of COURSE going to be included in last Friday’s launch menu. In the past I’ve always used Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur but I was excited to try Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur for a number of reasons: 1) I hadn’t […]
