Vodka Mixing Cocktails

Ashlie Hughes | VinePair | November 11, 2022

Smooth and versatile, vodka is blended into many popular cocktails served today — from Mules to Martini riffs. With base ingredients including, but not limited to, rice, corn, wheat, and potatoes, connoisseurs know that high-quality vodkas can bring unique textures and subtle flavors of their own...more
Best Bourbons 2022

Alex Darus | Daily Meal | November 9, 2022
There are undoubtedly tons of trends in the cocktail and alcohol space that come and go, but bourbon is that classic staple that will seemingly never go out of style. Bourbon is, at its core, the American version of whiskey that has been a reliable liquor on bar shelves since at least the 1800s (via American Whiskey Trail). According to Bourbon Country, the spirit stands out from general whiskey because of its mash bill — bourbon is almost always majorly comprised of corn, resulting in its sweet and smooth flavor...more
Moscow Mule

Erik Trinidad | Fatherly | November 2, 2022
If you spot a copper mug at a proper cocktail bar, you’ve undoubtedly encountered a Moscow Mule, a name that may conjure up images of the Kremlin. But this recognizable concoction doesn’t hail from the capital of Russia. Rather its origins were conceived in New York, circa 1941...more

Alex Darus | Mashed | September 9, 2022
Vodka is one of the most versatile spirits of all time. It might solicit memories of college debauchery and painful hangovers, but there are plenty of classy ways to enjoy the spirit.

Best spirit mixers

Alex Darus | Mashed | September 6, 2022
When the craving for a boozy beverage hits after a long day, you may not always have the liquor, mixers, and other ingredients you need to make your cocktail of choice at a moment's notice.

Sure, there are plenty of spirits and other miscellaneous mixers around the house to work with, your brain just hasn't figured out the best pairing yet. Thankfully, it just takes a little creativity and a lot of trial and error to figure out what can work. But at the moment, you might find yourself staring at your home bar while drawing a massive blank....more
Best vodka brands

Tim McKirdy | VinePair | June 23, 2022
Vodka is a paradoxical spirit. It leads spirit sales in America in terms of volume, and has done so for the last 40 years. Yet it holds none of the cultural cachet of whiskey or tequila. Browse liquor store shelves and you’ll discover more flavored iterations than all other spirits categories combined. But when it comes to judging quality, we instead base our opinions of a bottle on its lack of flavor....more

Best American whiskeys of 2021

Fred Minnick | December 30, 2021
This year was also the start of my spirits competition — The American Spirits Council of Tasters — and I wanted my rankings to be different than the ASCOT Awards. I also feel a ranking system is more accurate for a single critic to choose a whiskey of the year. Panels are better for determining Best in Class. For example, when scoring is used, I’ve been in panels that had two 96s. Does it end in a tie? No. A vote is taken and preferential tastes decide. This list represents what I like, and I am a single person, so there will be no votes....more

Nicolas Stecher | Maxim | December 30, 2021
Over the past week we’ve shined a light on several of our favorite categories within the world of American whiskey: rye, American single malts; double-barrel finishes; and innovation. But how about simply bourbons and straight up whiskies? No reason to ignore the basic foundation of American distilling traditions!
