Tails From The Barstool
Vodka literally means "water of life" translated from Russian and Polish, which is what vodka is made from - the freshest, cleanest spring water on earth. Vodka is said to make up over 70 percent of the alcohol consumed in U.S. and, with all the choices available, the liquor store isles are lined with this clear, good time elixir. Between all these fine spirits, consumers now have their choice of vodkas in all shapes and sizes. So what does your choice mean?
The Mandarin Sunset cocktail traditionally has been served over ice, but I prefer it up in a chilled cocktail glass with an added twist: blackberry brandy layered, not mixed. This cocktail is aesthetically appealing when you layer the blackberry brandy with the back of a barspoon to create the sunset. You could also use grenadine to create a sunrise, although I wouldn't recommend drinking it at 6 am. The result is a beautiful sunset perfect to sip on a balcony or patio when the sun goes down in the summertime.

The Cable Car is one of my favorite signature drinks. It is a very refreshing summer cocktail with a hint of cinnamon, citrus, and lemon on the palate. It is a rum based cocktail which was inspired by the hearing of the tracks near the historic Starlight Room in San Francisco where the cocktail was created.
