We are excited to share our latest discovery thanks to another cocktail holiday that is quickly approaching. Don't be confused by the name!

But how, exactly, did this cocktail come to be the "Unofficial Cocktail of West Texas?"
High-quality tools are designed to be durable, efficient, and easy to use, saving you time and effort when preparing cocktails. They help you achieve more precise measurements and create better textures and flavors in your drinks. But which bartending tools do you need? Here are the first 5 you should invest in.
The Martini is arguably one of the most famous cocktails of all time, but surprisingly, still one of the most controversial. There are actually two great debates about this cocktail along with a wild story of its origins that go back much further than the days of James Bond. Today we dive in to settle a thing or two.
Anyone who has attempted to make a great cocktail at home knows there is a lot more to bartending than just pouring drinks and having an endless supply of "A guy walks into a bar..." jokes at the ready.
So what comes after you buy the tools and the alcohol? What is it that the guy (or gal) behind the bar knows that you don't? And is it really possible to wield your Boston Shaker with the same skill and perfection?
The answer is YES! And today, we are "spilling the bitters" for you.
Scotch whiskey is often referred to as "liquid shine." Whether it be because of its color's golden hue or its magnificent mood-enhancing powers, Scotch whisky is enjoyed all over the world by many. Today, on National Scotch Day, lift your glass to the man who started it all.

If that is the case, we took the time to do a little taste test to see if a non-alcoholic whiskey substitute could get the job done instead and the results are in!
There is no better way to warm up on a cold, dreary mid-January day than with a cup of Hot Buttered Rum. Along with the recipe, we are sharing a bit about how this drink came into existence and why it was so popular.
As you already know, we believe in solid, American-made products and we want to give credit where credit is due. Some amazing companies are out there producing quality stuff, all while creating jobs and reigniting industry in the land of the free/home of the brave. We understand how difficult it can be to source and build in this country, so we'd love to raise a glass for the folks that do it! Today, we are sharing a few of our favorite things - products we love and think you will too!

It's time you invest in a home bar. Why? Because rather than knocking back the same drink every other night, you need to know there's more to life than your Jack and Coke or a vodka soda.

Here are the basics you need for curating the ultimate home bar.
