"Cluster-B?!? OMG! That's the WORST!" Why are there so many crazies out there? I need a drink... Oh, FYI, don't f#@! with a writer who has his own TV show!
The latest signature cocktail is like "The Vesper Martini", strong and delicious, with lots of Russian vodka, with the hint of lemon and elderflower. Created in the throes of love, like "The Vesper", it outlived the love itself (see drink name). Revenge is a drink best served cold, and in a chilled cocktail glass.

Here are some exciting stills from the latest episode of KEVIN'S COCKTAIL MINUTE! (Click on the link below to watch the video) "FROZEN HAPPINESS" "Today... Today... Today..." Waiting on the blender... Because I'm happy, even though it's a chimera. Happiness, that is.
Don't blame me, blame Schopenhauer!
The NEWEST episode from KEVIN'S COCKTAIL MINUTE is here! "Frozen Happiness" is a bold, invigorating summer cocktail. Rich tropical fruit flavors of pomegranate, passion fruit, and lime, with the bite of ginger, and the unique flavor of Yellow Chartreuse. Schopenhauer once said: “Happiness is a chimera.” Well, he never had this drink! Click on the link below for video...
"FROZEN HAPPINESS" Doesn't this make you happy?

POST SCRIPT: I love "James Bond", so all my martinis must be shaken, not stirred. It doesn't diffuse and dilute it that much more than if it were vigorously stirred. The point, after all, is to get it nice and cold, and shaking gets a drink colder than does s
I hated gin for decades. Like so many people who went to college, in addition to occasionally studying and going to class, I tested the limits of excess on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis. One night on a whim, I took this glass pitcher my roommate and I had swiped from one of the local watering holes (on an especially crowded and drunken night), and measured out what it took to fill it with martinis. A martini. The fabled drink of James Bond and polite society. A far cry fro
Yes please. Inspired by the James Bond film Skyfall, Sévérine is the most beautifully sad of all the Bond Girls. The drink itself is lighter, with a gorgeous red-orange color, with the complex flavor of Aperol, the smoothness of white cranberry, the exotic bite of Vietnamese ginger.

In celebration of "National Negroni Week" (June 6 through June 12), I offer to you a new twist on Count Negroni's famous creation. Hendrick's Gin, Vya Sweet Vermouth, and a variation on the Campari part of the recipe: the artichoke bitterness of Cynar, balanced by the bittersweet vibrancy of Aperol (with a splash of Crème Yvette for exotic flavor). And as the finishing touch, a dash of grapefruit bitters. Enjoy! DOWN FOR THE COUNT
