Play

Sake or sometimes known as rice wine is an ancient and reviled beverage in several Asian cultures. Although more akin to beer in the brewing process, when it comes to flavor it is closer to wine. It can be drank at a variety of temperatures, as well as in cocktails. Through researching and recording this episode Chris and Joe realized that Sake is wholly its own unique alcohol.



101-Bitters?

Play

We have recorded episodes about several alcohols and their mixers but have, until this moment, largely ignored a cocktail staple, bitters. Bitter herbs have been used medicinally for centuries but have had a bit of a roller coaster ride in the last 200 years. They became extremely popular during the 1800’s with the advent of cocktail parties, to virtually disappearing with America’s prohibition period. Although a few have stood steadfast in that time many new bitter making companies are popping up. Sometimes what you need is that old-timey flavor in today’s day and age. So don’t be bitter, just try some in your next cocktail.
