Sommelier Tries Every Costco Liquor | World of Wine | (Bon Appétit)

 Now, this is a pretty cool video. I remember like over a decade ago my family would get the Costco vodka. The rumor was that it was like store-brand version of Grey Goose. However, it was not half bad. It was pretty smooth for the price point and it was nearly identical in a libation. Here Andre, the Sommelier, is actually doing a taste test (neat at that) of all the Costco-based spirits. Check it out:

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.
