Cameron's Kick cocktail recipe (Steve the Bartender)

 Now, this is pretty interesting. I've never seen a split between Scotch whisky and Irish whiskey in one drink before. I actually want to try this one day and see how it pairs up.

3 Cocktail Recipes To Try This Spring (Anders Erickson)

 With the weather starting to warm up, people are looking to have a good time and enjoy a great libation. Social gatherings, parties, and picturesque views in the background all just give this element of leisure. What better than to have the perfect cocktail in hand to set things off, right? 

Mr. Erickson has provided us with some amazing heat to provide that liquid courage for us all. One of them is a throwback and the other are two originals. Check them out below: 

THE BARBACK’S REVENGE RECIPE 1 oz. El Dorado 8 Year Rum 1 oz. Bénédictine DOM 1/2 oz. Lustau Los Arcos Amontillado Sherry 1 oz. cold brew concentrate Expressed lemon oil THE AVIATION RECIPE 2 oz. St. George Botanivore Gin 1/4 oz. Rothman and Winter Crème de Violette 1/4 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur 1/2 oz. Fresh lemon juice Expressed lemon oil & cocktail cherry for garnish THE SPRING FORWARD RECIPE 1 strawberry (muddled) 1/2 oz. semi-rich simple syrup (1.5:1 sugar:water) 1 oz. Barsol Pisco Quebranta 1/2 oz. Plymouth Gin 3/4 oz. Cocchi Americano Bianco 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice Basil garnish

The Brown Derby Cocktail, LA's Vintage Cocktail (Dr. Cush's Exotic Cocktails)

 I love libations with a bit of history and flair to them. This is a simple drink, but the ingredients are top-notch and it helps that there's some reference to yesteryear. I'd def drink this on a rainy day here.
