OL’ MAJOR Bacon Bourbon Review

Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon, is a well made product, at first sight you see a screw top and a wooden looking label. Under the cap it smells like bourbon with a hint of bacon. I admit I do want to taste it, is it more bourbon or more liqueur. At 35% or 70 Proof I am hoping it is more bourbon, with that pleasant hint of bacon.

Taste is enjoyable, you will have the sweet taste of bourbon that is all the flavors you get from aging in charred barrels yet you also get the taste of bacon which makes it just that much better. I like to drink bourbon neat (straight without ice) and this would be great after dinner. I must say I did try it in a cocktail the Good Ol’ Bacon Bloody Mary and I liked it so much I had made 3 or 4 of them.

Yes if you like bourbon or bacon, you will find something in Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon that you will enjoy. Order a bottle online today by clicking here.

Here are some other peoples opinions;

Reed’s Ginger Brew Review & Moscow Mule Recipe

Moscow Mule Cocktail has and remains very popular so I wanted to add my review on Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew, a staple ingredient in the Moscow Mule.

Moscow Mule Cocktail Recipe
1-1/2 ounces vodka
Cold Ginger Beer
Garnish Lime Wedge
Copper Mug
Pour the vodka into a copper mug filled with ice, squeeze lime into mug. Fill with Ginger Beer.
Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew is the same recipe as Original Ginger Brew, but has 26 grams (instead of 17 grams) of fresh ginger root for a stronger taste. The other ingredients are the same lemon, lime, honey, cane sugar, pineapple, herbs and spices.

Reed’s Stronger Ginger Brew Here is a list of ingredients from the bottle, Sparkling Filtered Water (Sweetened by a blend of raw cane sugar, pineapple juice from concentrate and honey), Fresh Ginger Root, Lemon and Lime Juices from concentrate and spices. Non Alcoholic. Free of Preservatives, Caffeine, Gluten & GMO’s.

Here is the story of Chris Reed who founded Reed’s Ginger Brew. He first decided to create a ginger ale made with fresh ginger in 1987, he went to UCLA library, pre internet, to research into the early formulas for soft drinks. He figured if he went back far enough in time he would find recipes that worked with real ingredients. Then he found a book from the 1780’s, before the first bottling plants even existed, that talked about brewing sodas from whole roots, spices and fruit juices in the kitchen. Chris knew he had found what he was looking for. These early soft drinks, besides being delicious, were also used as herbal tonics. After two years of much trial and error, Reed’s Original Ginger Brew was ready to launch.
Reed’s brews are a delicious revival of the lost brewing art of brewing sodas. Each small batch is hand crafted with pride, carefully brewed and aged by expert brew masters. They choose only the finest fresh herbs, roots, spices and fruits. They don’t use any preservatives or artificial anything in our beverages. And in my opinion Reed’s Brews make the best cocktails.

ETROG LIQUEUR SUKKAH HILL SPIRITS REVIEW

Citrus, so after I had Besamim Liqueur, I moved on to another product from Sukkah Hill Spirits, ETROG Liqueur. ETROG Liqueur is a citrus liqueur. Very bright and full of flavor without being too sweet, again I must say it is perfectly balanced. After a few drinks, I said this would be great with vodka, and we mixed it over ice, then strained it into a martini glass making a very citrus yet not sweet (like a lemon drop martini) cocktail that was delicious.

Looking at the website I learned Etrog is a lightly sweet citrus liqueur featuring the aroma of citrus blossoms. An Etrog is an ancient heirloom citrus fruit grown in only a handful of orchards worldwide. Bottled at 76 proof (36% alc/vol), Etrog is excellent chilled, over ice or as a base for bright strong cocktails. On the Besamim website I did find a Cocktail Recipe page for some great drink ideas. It has won many Gold Medals, from SIP Awards, Craft Competition, Tastings… I purchased two bottles from Mission Wine & Spirits liquor store that will ship it right to your house.

Montana Moonshine Willie's Distillery

Montana Moonshine Review

Montana Moonshine is made with four grains and gently distilled to bring out the full flavor. It is what whiskey looks and tastes like before it goes into a barrel. Smooth, sweet and strong, Montana Moonshine is the perfect mixer. Use it like a vodka or a whiskey and you can’t go wrong.

They use a copper pot still made just for them by Bavarian Holstein Stills from Germany. They wanted to make whiskies and brandies, and a few specialty spirits, so they sought out one of the finest small batch stills in the world. The custom still is handcrafted out of copper, and hand-hammered to create more surface area to react with our spirits vapors. Since they specialize in whiskey which has a lot of flavor to it, copper was an important element to the design, as it reacts with unpleasant tasting compounds, allowing the better flavor to shine through.

The Montana Moonshine pin-up illustration is of MaryAnne. She loves to fish remote mountain streams during the full moon. Like our Montana Moonshine, she is independent and easy-going.

Bulletproof Coffee

How To Make Bulletproof Coffee

How to make Bulletproof Coffee

It is so easy, I want to keep it short and simple just like making this coffee every morning, follow this recipe.

First boil 1 cup or 8 oz. of filtered water, add 2 1/2 heaping tablespoons freshly ground Bulletproof coffee and brew as you would any other day. Add 1 teaspoon Bulletproof Upgraded Brain Octane and 1 tablespoon grass-fed, unsalted butter. Put it all in a blender and blend for 30 seconds or until the oil and butter emulsified, the coffee will look frothy like a latte.

I drank the first one quick, and felt great all day. Now I sip and savor it as I crave it, and will not go without it. Amazing how it will take your energy to a whole new level. I look forward to my Bulletproof Coffee each and every day.

Hotmixology Party Box Bloody Mary Mix www.partyboxmix.com

Hotmixology Party Box Bloody Mary Mix Review

Bloody Mary’s are real good, especially when you use the Hotmixology Party Box Bloody Mary Mix, just add 80 proof vodka. Hotmixology makes it easy, the creators of the Party Box launched the Party Box Bloody Mary Mix. An award winning, premium Bloody Mary mix, the recipe includes a hint of Horseradish, a touch of onion, garlic, red pepper, Tabasco, Worcestershire and other spices that bring all these flavors together, creating the perfect mix. If you want to add more spice, heat or a secret ingredient just add it when you add your spirit and then shake it all up together.
Created by the host of Hotmixology Dave Elger and his mixologists, they created the perfect Bloody Mary mix, a great addition to the line of Hotmixology Party Box Mixers. Hotmixology Party Box Bloody Mary Mix is easy, you can prepare it in a few minutes before your guests arrive. No need to worry about making drinks individually, enjoy the party. It’s also economical I spent less than $15 on the Party Box Mix and a little bit more for a bottle of vodka.
Here is how it works, Hotmixolgoy Party Box is made with two spouts one on top- open to add your favorite spirit (750ml – 1.75ml) then reseal, shake it for a minute, then use the second spout on the side to pour a perfect cocktail. Party Box comes with 3 liters of premium mix there is room to add 2 more liters of spirits, it will make just over 2 dozen cocktails. Compare this to a pitcher with ice that creates ice melt if it is not consumed right away, this invention makes the perfect cocktail that stays perfect for the duration of the party and if there is any left you can enjoy it days later.
DIY, I like to do a Bloody Mary buffet/build your own Bloody Mary it’s social and a lot of fun. Hotmixology Party Box does all the work, no need to individually make a Bloody Mary for each guest. Start by adding vodka to the Hotmixology Party Box Bloody Mary Mix. Prepare a tray of glasses, a bowl of ice, a saucer with salt and one with celery salt (for rimming). Add a few garnishes I like to do lemon and celery stalk, and done. You can customize your Bloody Mary Bar a bit more by adding things like cracked/cayenne pepper, salt, sea salt, pickles, bacon, garlic, pickled okra, jalapeño, asparagus, cucumber, crushed red pepper, Himalaya salt, shrimp… add a comment with things you like to add to your Bloody Mary.
