    Give It A Shot - Burly Gentlemen Whiskey Mixed Drink

    The Burly Gentlemen.  These two words when put together simply cry out to be the name of a mixed drink.  Not just any mixed drink mind you.  A blended concoction that is sweet, smooth and delicious while also giving you a stern smoky kick that lets you know it's business time!  Now that you're done laughing after watching the Flight of the Conchords video we linked to, we can begin to talk about what comprises the drink.  Bourbon (Jefferson's), Scotch (Laphroaig Triple Wood), Agave nectar and Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6.  While it has some things in common with a traditional Manhattan, the addition of scotch adds a little smoke and the gave nectar adds a touch of extra sweetness.  Mix one up with us and taste along as we explore this new cocktail together.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Oogave Natural Organic Cola

    Can you take a rainbow and put it in your pocket?  Can you sweeten a cola with agave nectar?  One man set out to definitively answer the second question with a large lineup of sodas.  Stephen "Esteban" Anson began serving his handcrafted Oogave sodas in 2005 at his restaurant.  They became such a hit other local establishments wanted to carry them as well.  All of this growth led to the opening of their bottling plant in 2009.  Certified Kosher and Organic by Scroll K and the Colorado Department of Agriculture, these Oogave sodas sweetened with agave nectar can be found in all 50 states.  Today on the show we will be tasting their cola, but looking at the other options available on their site, we may be sampling more in the future.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.
