Why I Love Fernet-Branca & Hate Anyone Who Doesn't: A Guest Blog By Sky Jack Morgan

As a rule, Kelly Rippa does not drink Fernet-Branca. Secretly she loves it, but when it comes to amaros her handlers would much rather you spy her sipping crimson Campari on the beach with an aureole of gold. It plays better in Wyoming. But for us mere mortals, Fernet is a kind and gentle reminder of our imminent ends, a whisper in the dark imploring us to live all moments of our lives to the fullest because we are not Kelly Rippa, and we will never start the day brushing puppies’ teeth or bathing them in kiddie pools with Christian Slater and Zachary Quinto before millions of adoring worshipers. It is a drink that has stalked me my entire life. When I lived in Europe as a young man I drank

X-citing Stills from the Latest Video!

Enjoy these sleazy pics from the latest video shoot in KEVIN'S COCKTAIL MINUTE. The delicious, salacious cocktail called "GET NASTY" (click on the name to see video). Smoking, drinking, boob juggling. Life is good. Cheesy 70s porno music as a backdrop to... BOOB JUGGLING! (It's not easy with squishy boobs. Implants work better.) Smoking is good for you! Don't believe those know-it-all doctors! Getting nasty. BTW, don't get ashes in your drink.

A Cocktail in the Spirit of 70s Porno

"Get Nasty" is the latest signature drink from KEVIN'S COCKTAIL MINUTE! My answer to “Sex On The Beach”, “Get Nasty” is smooth, tropical, passionate, and delicious. Ketel One Citroen Vodka and Aperol provide the kick, while the sumptuous flavors of peach, pink grapefruit, and white cranberry make you come back for more. Click on the link below to view the video. (WARNING: There are squishy boobs!) "GET NASTY" With a peach slice and a squishy boob for a garnish.

Jack Johnson's Knockout Cocktail

Allow me to introduce the newest signature cocktail from KEVIN'S COCKTAIL MINUTE! Created in honor of the greatest boxer of all time, “The Jack Johnson” features a powerful one-two punch: the unparalleled flavor of Blanton’s single barrel Kentucky Bourbon whiskey, balanced against one of the world’s best sweet vermouths, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino. Add the tart taste of cranberry, the crisp bite of ginger, and Peychaud’s bitters, and it’s a knockout. Click on the link below for the video... "THE JACK JOHNSON" The Champ at fighting weight. "The Jack Johnson" in an old-style glass. Ah, racism... Thankfully, we've come a long way in a hundred years. (cough cough)

Retro Cocktail for July: The Fourth Regiment

Not much is known about this month's Retro Cocktail. Legend holds that it dates back to 1889. It gets its unique, disarming flavor from the three kinds of bitters: Peychaud's, orange, and celery. When I originally wrote down the recipe, my dyslexia kicked in and I put Extra Dry Vermouth instead of Sweet. And this actually isn't bad. I used Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry and it has an interesting flavor, but of course it's not "The Fourth Regiment". Perhaps "The Fifth"? The Sweet Vermouth in this recipe is one of my favorites, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, with those lovely notes of cocoa and rhubarb. It tastes almost like a fine sherry.
