1. Freezer Drinks
Some cocktails are best served very cold. Freezer cold. Martini, anyone? These are serious cocktails you can make right in the liquor bottle. Store them in the freezer for a quick individual cocktail and, prepped in advance as they are, they make easy work of serving a party crowd.

2. DIY Project Reveals 100-Year-Old Whiskey Stash
When Bryan Fite, 40, moved into his newly purchased 1850s St. Joseph, Missouri, house, a DIY project revealed a treasure trove of 100-year-old whiskey. How much is the uber-aged whiskey worth? A rare bottle of single-malt whiskey from the 1930s recently sold for $100,000. Fite’s booze is older.

3. Place Changes Taste of Whisky
Ever discover a delicious new cocktail on vacation, at a party, or at some other festive or exotic event? Ever tried to re-create it at home? Didn’t work quite so well, did it? That could be because of location, according to Charles Spence and his fellow research scientists at Oxford University.

4. Tequila Sunrise, Tequila Sunset
Expand your appreciation for Mexico's favorite elixir with the Tequila Sunrise and the Tequila Sunset. Whether it’s for brunch or a cocktail party by the pool, your guests are sure to be delighted by these beautifully layered cocktails that are as much fun to make as they are to drink.

5. Irish Coffee Recipe
One of the most popular things to do with good Irish whiskey is to add some hot coffee and top it with cool cream. That’s the basic Irish Coffee recipe, yes, but there are lots of ways to add a little “color” to the brew. Here’s my favorite Irish Coffee recipe.

6. Alcohol Brain Disconnect
If we haven’t done it, we’ve seen it. It’s somebody who’s become sloppy, falling-down drunk. Alcohol certainly throws off one’s coordination but the neurological reason behind the symptom has been a mystery until now. The alcohol brain disconnect is a measurable neurological reaction.

7. Golden Start, Jade, Ruby Cocktail Recipes
These Golden Start, Jade, and Ruby cocktails are as lusciously rich in flavor as they are in looks. For added fun, serve them in the prettiest glasses possible.

8. Maker’s Mark Whiskey Waffles
Biggest news in booze these days is how the maker of Maker’s Mark whiskey waffles between its 90-proof hooch and its poorly planned effort to stretch production of a good thing by lowering the proof to a mere 84. One day, it's 90 proof, the next it’s 84, and then 90 again. Why all the waffling?

9. Super Bowl Cocktail Recipes
Stir up these delicious cocktails full of team spirit for Super Bowl Sunday. Black Cherry Rum Punch is sure to please a crowd of Baltimore Ravens fans while the Golden Hornet in honor of the San Francisco 49ers, is best shaken one drink at at time.

10. Shamrock and Clover Club Cocktail Recipes
