I really enjoyed this video as it gave me an interesting perspective into why you use certain glassware. Take a look..you may learn something yourself:

If you are more of a Brandy/Cognac kind of person, you should definitely put this libation in your resume. Certainly, this is a good twist to a classic framework. Jon Harris gives us a demonstration on how to make this cocktail. M

2 oz Hennessy VSOP Privilege
1/2 oz Sesame Orgeat
2 Dashes Dr. Adam Elmegirab's Teapot Bitters
Garnish with Lemon Peel

They give a brief description to how you should create your own Sesame Orgeat:

"Sesame orgeat: Add .5 cup of black sesame seeds to a small skillet over medium heat, and toast for 90 seconds. Set aside and let cool. Add 2 cups of boiling water and 3 cups of sugar to a bowl and stir until dissolved. Transfer the syrup and sesame seeds to a blender and blend for 1 minute. Refrigerate the mixture overnight. Skim off any oils or solids that have floated to the surface and strain the mixture through a cheesecloth-lined fine-mesh sieve, discarding the solids. Stir in .5 mL of Amoretti Cherry Blossom (Sakura) extract and .25 mL of Amoretti Wild Strawberry extract. The orgeat will keep for at least 1 month in the refrigerator."

Another cool and short tutorial on the Mezcal side of things. Tequila is actually a type of Mezcal.

UK Rumfest: Sam Smallman and Ian Burrell Do a Rum and Chocolate Pairing

It's very interesting because I usually consider pairing done with a good craft beer/IPA or wine. Never would I think Rum and chocolate go together. However, it certainly makes sense. I bet there's a crazy difference between using a typical gold or aged rum versus spiced rum in eating certain things together. Check out the footage below of how these two guys in the UK pair up some British rum with chocolate.
