GSN Review: Holy Tyger Bottled Cocktail

LiveWire Cocktail Co. recently announced the release of its second bottled cocktail, this one created by Shannon Mustipher, author of “Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails.” In 2020, Shannon’s work garnered a number of accolades: she was awarded the Tales of the Cocktail Pioneer Award, and inducted into the Dame Hall of Fame. “Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails” won the  IACP Best Book in Beer, Wine and Spirits.

Inspired by a drink in her book, Holy Tyger is what Shannon describes as a “beach drink,” a whiskey sour riff with notes of lemongrass, made with Straight Bourbon, Rockey’s Liqueur, Coconut, Lime, and Jamaican #1 Bitters.

“One of my favorite things about NYC’s drinking culture is the ‘nutcracker’ – and the enterprising individuals that have turned selling them into a lucrative side hustle,” says Shannon Mustipher. “The Holy Tyger is perfect for a park or beach hang – think of it as my elevated answer to the nutcracker – easy to drink, straight up or on the rocks.”

Shannon’s writing, cocktail recipes, and opinions have been featured in a number of publications, including Vinepair, Saveur, Imbibe, GQ.com, and Liquor.com.  She currently resides in Brooklyn, NY, and enjoys traveling, cooking, and collecting “too many books.”

The bottle label art, by Baltimore artist Nolen Strals, is made up of bold lines with subtle color blocking and an edge of something suggestively dangerous. Featuring Japanese imagery in the traditional American tattoo style, the Holy Tyger bottle harkens back to late 70s Americana style: saturated, pulpy, and effortlessly cool.

GSN’s Remarks: Lime hits the palate at first, followed by sweet bourbon, and then a curious coconut flavor wends its way into the mix. All of this is interesting enough, but the cocktail includes Rockey’s Liqueur which lends notes of green apple, pineapple and tea. Lastly, there is the spicy note of Bittercube’s Jamaican #1 bitters which add allspice, clove and other baking spices as top notes. So much going on here, and yet, it melds beautifully into a sum greater than its parts. Really clever, creative and desirable. GSN Rating: A++

GSN Review: Cask & Kettle Hot Coffee Cocktails

Cask & Kettle is the only Keurig-style pod alcoholic coffee cocktail on the market making it a simple one step process. Pop a single serve cup into your brewing system or pour hot water to a mug and add the contents of a pod and stir. Flavors include Irish Coffee, Mint Patty, Mexican Coffee, and Hot Blonde Coffee. They also make a Spiked Dry Cider, which we were not sent for review.
 
Cask & Kettle is Woman-owned and operated, and certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise. The spirits are distilled in Temperance, Michigan. (Oh, the irony!) Best of all, all of the cocktails are decaffeinated, gluten-free and the pods are made with 100% recyclable material.

Irish Coffee – GSN’s Remarks: Vodka and Irish Whiskey. This actually works to its advantage, toning down the sweet, malty notes of the whiskey. Of the four, this is our favorite. GSN Rating: B+

Mint Patty – GSN’s Remarks: We were expecting a heavy mint flavor, but happily that wasn’t the case. This is just right, with a mild mintiness that doesn’t overwhelm the coffee. GSN Rating: B

Mexican Coffee – GSN’s Remarks: This one has vodka and tequila. The tequila flavor is mild, but noticable. It does work. GSN Rating: B

Hot Blonde Coffee – GSN’s Remarks: A straightforward coffee with vodka. The flavor is good and natural. GSN Rating: B

Overall, these are an easy and quick way to make some boozy, after dinner coffee libations. What we appreciate about these is that you don’t need a machine to use them. Plus, it saves having to buy bottles of vodka, tequila, Irish whiskey and cart them around if you are camping.

Red, White & Blue Rum Cocktail: Made with boysenberry, pomegranate, and a creamy vanilla center. GSN’s Remarks: This is like eating a blue raspberry slush with some vanilla soft serve added. Pretty intense, if you’re into that flavor. GSN Rating: B
Orange Vanilla Cream Rum Cocktail: This is an adult version of a 50/50 bar with an 11% ABV vanilla cream center sandwiched by two 8% ABV tangy orange rum cocktails. GSN’s Remarks: This was our favorite, far and away. Brilliant! A boozy creamsicle. The balance was just right, and you definitely get a pop of rum with each bite. GSN Rating: A
Strawberry Colada Cocktail: A combination of a strawberry daiquiri and a Pina Colada, with a vanilla rum cream center. GSN’s Remarks: Another winner. Strawberry and coconut work really well together. Again, the balance is spot on, and the rum intermingles with the ice pop flavors perfectly. GSN Rating: A-

GSN Review: Confidence Drink

Confidence is an organic, all-natural, sugar-free, zero-calorie beverage created to boost people’s moods and feelings of harmony and help wash away anxiety, fear and self-doubt – giving people an essential confidence boost.

Confidence is the brainchild of two Gen Z entrepreneurs who recognized the importance of mental confidence and how vital it is to live a full life. Witnessing their friends’ tendencies to overthink things and not be present in the moment, they realized this void in the market and launched a mission to create a product that gives people the mental freedom they need to thrive.

It all starts with functional ingredients and adaptogens – plant-based ingredients that work at the molecular level to lighten the effect of physical, mental and emotional stressors on the body. Confidence’s combination of the ingredients listed below, work together to help you feel like the best version of yourself with benefits that include lowered stress, increased mental sharpness, improved mood and a better functioning nervous system.

  • Rhodiola (Harmony): Reduces stress, kicks fatigue, and improves brain function
  • Gingseng (Focus): Benefits brain functions like memory, mood and focus
  • Gaba (Reduce Anxiety): Relieves stress and anxiety, balances mood
  • 5-HTP (Lower Fear): Helps the body produce serotonin, boosts mood, and promotes feelings of relaxation
  • Magnesium (Release Tension): Aids hundreds of reactions in the body, like generating energy and keeping the nervous system humming
  • B Vitamins (Mood Boost): Contributes to full-body well-being, maintains energy levels, and supports healthy brain and nerve function

GSN’s Remarks: You know the taste of kids vitamins? Well, this isn’t far off. Slightly chalky, sort of fruity, but with an odd supplement kind of taste. I’m not saying it’s unpleasant, but it definitely is not what we were expecting. As for the health benefits? Perhaps we noticed a bit of a mellow vibe, similar to CBD. It’s hard to say. It may be a case of where you need to drink a few cans over a period of days for the ingredients to build in your system. In any case, the drink can be a mixer for the Red Bull kind of crowd if you want a little liquor. We also suggest drinking this over ice, or at least chilled. GSN Rating: B
