The head lushes at Ludlow’s Cocktails (who were also the head scoops behind Coolhaus) figured out — no doubt, after a good night of heavy boozing — that the Jell-o shot had some growing up to do. It was high time it left the trays tipped over at frat parties, and became something easier and tastier to handle. […]


If you like your whisky rocks a hell of a lot more than whisky water, it’s high time your highball go the way of the Whisky Wedge.

Aged brandy that will blow an arrow through your appleseed

Black Dirt Distillery is Warwick’s finest in fancy specialty hooch sauce. Apple sauce, that is, in the case of the Apple Jack for which the upstate New York distillery is known for.
