Tasting Couch is more than day drinking or an excuse to open a bottle or wine or high proof whiskey before noon. It’s taking time out of our busy days to sample top products in the food & beverage industry, while giving reviews, talking to the brand owners and educating consumers.
Tasting Couch hosts Forrest Cokely and Will Elger talk spirits, wine, beer, mixers, food and so much more. They interview the creators of brands as they join them on the tasting couch. Dive into a craft bourbon or a wine sent to them from a new winery, each and every day is a different brand. The tasting couch podcast started after years of consulting for many different brands. Brands that would send products to review, give feedback/suggestions or want us to create seasonal cocktails. We would sit down with a brand or with the brand owner talking about their brand and each and every time we wished we could have recorded the session, and share it with consumers who love these brands and want to know more about them.
Do you have a Wine, Beer, Spirit, Mixer, Food… and want to be on The Tasting Couch, email email@example.com

Have you ever dreamed of a liquor store that only has products you love. I found that store, The Mixing Glass is a craft cocktail lifestyle store, that sells the hardest to find spirits, best vintages and the most relevant books and bartending tools. If that is not enough to get you into the store they also carry hard to find mixes, bitters and more bitters. It’s not a big store, they don’t carry every brand, the carry the brands that bartenders and industry experts are drawn to, not high priced but highly regarded brands. And best of all they have a knowlegeble approachable staff to help make sure you get what you came in for.
Today as I stopped by to stock up for the weekend they had a celebrity guest, Forrest Cokely one of the most knowledgeable people in the spirits industry worldwide. He’s producer of the blog a drink with forrest… he has been a judge in top spirits competitions Miami Rum Renaissance, San Diego Spirits Festival, Craft Competition… He has been invited to distilleries worldwide and has helped produce respectable successful brands. He’s the guy you can ask about a product on the shelf and learn everything there is to know about that spirit. Forrest has a following and for all the right reasons, people are content drinking highly marketed spirits. Yet after “a drink with forrest…” or after a recommendation from Forrest, you become knowledgeable about what your drinking. Craft, artisan, small batch… there not just words put on a bottle for marketing, they are descriptive words that are used in describing unique spirits brands. Unique spirits brands are not in every liquor store and almost never at your local pharmacy. They are rare, handcrafted and mostly bottled by hand, they make great gifts as hard to find brands add value and yes they are worth the extra stop even on a Friday in rush hour.
So what did I purchase today you ask, my usual for the wife and for me ArteNOM Añejo 1146 Tequila, yes I could tell you more about this tequila than my go to tequila I have been drinking for over a decade, thank you Forrest.
The Mixing Glass is located at The OC Mix, Orange County’s Acclaimed shopping destination, located within Costa Mesa’s SoCo and home to many locally owned boutiques, specialty food spots and a weekly farmers market.

“3D Touch” a display that uses pressure sensitive technology that makes this phone do new things in a new style. While I was taking a look at both the 6S and the 6S Plus I noticed they are the same size as 6 so my case from my 6 will fit on my 6S.
Rose Gold, looks like it will be the one to buy, especially if you want everyone to know you have the 6S.
No more bendgate, the material used is a aerospace grade aluminum and it looks like a thicker glass. The inside looks like it is built with the same aerospace grade aluminum.
Shortcuts is another new idea on this phone, apple calls it peeking in, you access most resent actions a lot faster. Press and hold on an app and it will pull up a drop down menu with options, you can also customize the dropdown menus.
Camera has a new front and back camera for photos and videos. A better autofocus and a 12 megapixel camera which is a lot more than the last phone that only has an 8 megapixel camera. Do yourself a favor and get the most storage space possible these photos and videos take up a lot of space.

Craft Competition uses a glass engineered to expose all the aromas hiding behind nose-numbing alcohol. NEAT Glass allows you to taste the truth and discover what’s hiding in your glass.
In 2003, a simple mistake in a glass blowing class created a misshapen tumbler which was used in a pinch for want of a clean glass. The amazing change in expression led to a new approach to glass design which is called Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology (NEAT). By studying links between human physiology and molecular behavior, they unlocked the hidden dimensions of distilled spirits for your exquisite pleasure and hedonistic enjoyment, with a spirits glass that directs strong alcohol away from the nose. Over the next nine years, fifty two different design iterations, hundreds of tastings, and GCMS studies led to the perfect ultimate spirits glass now known as the NEAT glass.
Science builds better glassware: The NEAT glass…Design driven by science brings truth in taste.
The Patented Design: Create a wide vessel to enhance evaporation, short enough to allow heavy aromas to reach the nose, and squeeze the vapors so lighter molecules like ethanol alcohol move faster. Flare the rim so squeezed molecules have room to expand, and alcohol scurries over the rim to disappear and never numb the nose, while the other slower moving aromas are detected in the sweet spot, without alcohol. This design patented in the USA D663165, utility patented in the People’s Republic of China, and utility patent pending in Austria, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Definition of Flavor: The blend of taste and smell sensations evoked by a substance in the mouth. A thousand aromas, five tastes define flavor. The total impression includes mouth feel, from sensors that detect oily or dry, temperature, texture, minty, and many others. Aroma (90%) + Taste (5%) + Mouth Feel (5%) = Flavor.
Evaporation: The “engine” that powers aromas to the nose aided by large evaporation area and vigorous swirling. Without evaporation, there is nothing to smell.
Compress and Release: The neck of the NEAT Glass compresses, and the wide flared rim allows expansion as vapors pass through the narrow opening. The lightest vapor – ethanol alcohol – diffuses and disperses.
What’s the benefit?
No more nose burn or numbness. Your nose is free to detect, savor, and enjoy the subtle, wonderful aromas the distiller intended. Your nose will also tell you if the distiller did his job with care, making the proper head and tail cuts, using clean equipment, and even the condition of the barrels. Without alcohol dumbing down your sense of smell, absolutely nothing can hide from your nose.
What’s the scientific verification?
The NEAT Glass was designed for maximum drinking enjoyment and tested under controlled, uniform conditions against other spirits glasses at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Chemistry Department to verify our claims.
