It’s official. The fine people at Captain Morgan created a social media app that people actually have fun using. Our fellow Mutineers responded appropriately, prank calling each other using revolutionary technology never before available to prank callers. It may have just been the Mutineer staff taking things way too far. Either way, it was epic.See the full post »
Malibu Rum is pretty excited about the Malibu Drink Mixer, but all it really does is add repetitive island music to a bunch of recipes in an impractical tool I would never use to mix drinks, unless you love one-dimensional, repetitive island music. See the full post »
Our friends at STK are very excited about their holiday cocktails, and in the spirit of the holidays we figured WHY NOT SPREAD A LITTLE HOLIDAY CHEER.

As for us Mutineers, Energyologist Jeff’s idea of a holiday cocktail is eating candy canes and washing it down with Red Bull and tequila, Beer Editor Brian has a constant supply of holiday seasonal beers finding their way onto the counter, our marketing guru JJ is drinking Amarula Cream cause he can’t seem to get enough of the stuff, and I’m drinking whatever people put in front of me! Happy holidays fellow Mutineers!
If you’re a fan of Robert Hess‘ “Classic Cocktails” column in Mutineer Magazine, you’re probably a fan of the killer photos of the cocktails prepared by H. Joseph Ehrmann of San Francisco’s Elixir Saloon (and photographed by Mutineer photog Ian Andreae). Ehrmann is a ninja of the cocktail, and one only needs to try his renowned Bloody Mary to become a believer.
Here is a holiday punch featuring Bols Genever by Ehrmann that is sure to make you the cocktail ninja of your holiday party. Recipe after the jump. See the full post »
Clocking in at four minutes and five seconds, this short film about the magic of getting together with friends is too epic to sum up in words. This is part 2 of this series commissioned by the incredibly forward-thinking people at Absolut.
All you need to know here is “7 foot menorah”, “clear piping”, and “65 Litres of Single Malt Scotch”. Yes people, this is the real deal: a massive, Scotch-filled menorah that claims to be the world’s first. This was definitely a step up from the chocolate menorah’s of years passed. Tullibardine Distillery donated the Scotch, which was shared with guests that came to view the menorah lighting.
You know the current surge in absinthe popularity has reached a fever pitch when you can not only drink it, but you can clean your body, freshen your breath and moisten your lips with it. While absinthe isn’t exactly the first thing I think of when it comes to my personal hygiene, perhaps it should be. Though personally, I prefer mine in the glass with icy water and sugar.

It’s been a very good week for crazy-expensive liquors at auctions. A bottle of Glenfiddich 50 Year Old Single Malt Scotch sold for $38,000 on Monday at a Christie’s auction to raise money for “Friends of Scotland”. This was the only bottle available for private purchase, with there only being three other bottles on the market at the Mardarin Oriental in New York, the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami, and the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills.
Coincidentally, a bottle of 1788 Vieux Cognac was sold this week at auction in Paris for $36,935.
