    Hearing some very valid criticism and discussion here - going to be posting a video this weekend with some revised/corrected techniques! Not just because I want more drinks.

  • Adam Henderson  (Jan 27, 2019))

    That's a skinny margarita, overmuddled mint gives you grass in your teeth, old fashions have cherries, oh and a dry martini has dry vermouth, not sweet, that's a Manhattan, only gin martini drinkers won't want ice crystals, vodka will. Oh and if its extra dry it means no vermouth.

    Whenever I go to a bar, I ask for an orange juice no pulp shaken not stirred.

  • So You  (Dec 31, 2018))

    Who drinks orange juice without pulp? Weirdo!

  • Rekken and Yu  (Dec 17, 2018))

    mad lad

  • First  (Mar 17, 2018))

    So apparently the mug I’ve been using for my hot cocoa is meant for a fancy Russian cocktail...

  • TunableJoker16  (Feb 2, 2019))

    well damn now ya know

  • Its not actually Russian, it was named that way because the drink contains vodka.

  • Mr. Krabbs  (Mar 16, 2018))

    i dont even drink alcohol why am i here

  • HEISENBERG  (Mar 12, 2019))

    Because you want to drink

  • Oskar Holm Beuschel  (Feb 19, 2019))

    +HacaPotato lol why?

  • Tessa van Rijn  (Mar 15, 2018))

    You should make the cocktails from archer

  • AD asd  (Dec 16, 2018))

    Peppermint paddy!

  • Damian Wilim  (Jul 11, 2018))

    Check out cocktail chemistry channel, it's similar to BWB, but with alcohol

  • mrslapside  (Mar 16, 2018))

    That looks super refreshing. 😋

  • John Goodman  (Mar 18, 2018))

    Sorry to correct but in a dry martini you use dry vermouth. I think you just misspoke as the vermouth you're using looks to be a dry one. Sweet vermouth is a fortified red wine versus a fortified white whine which is the dry variety. Sweet vermouth is used in sweeter cocktails like a Manhattan. Other than that I love your videos and I hope you continue to make them!

  • Stefan De Bokx  (Jul 28, 2018))

    devojane Wait really? Damn I thought it was red wine and I never knew why there wasn't a dry red one...

  • devojane  (Mar 27, 2018))

    Agreed, but you might be surprised to discover that sweet vermouth is also made with white wine; it's the spices & herbs it's infused with that give it the color.

  • Matt smith  (Mar 16, 2018))

    Babish, I love you. BUT when making a Mojito use squeezed lime juice and simple syrup and lightly press the mint... muddling sugar cubes like that will bruise the mint and bring out bitterness. I find just lightly pressing the mint in the lime and sugar with the flat back end of a bar spoon works real nice. Also the Noilly Pratt you used in your martini is dry, not sweet. But like I said I love you bro ❤️

  • Andrew Hoang  (Jun 23, 2018))

    Thanks, I love reading comments from a picky alcoholic

  • Blargaha  (Jun 21, 2018))

    Of course, I work with bitterness behind the bar all the time. However, not all bitternesses are created equal. Go out and chew on a leaf and compare that to the pleasant bitterness of an amaro, or a nice negroni. Chlorophyll bitterness is a very unpleasant bitterness that's both tart and bitter at the same time.Furthermore, a mojito already has an element of bitterness from the lime. There's really no point to ruin the natural fragrance of the mint. Sure, one could excuse poor workmanship behind the...

    You called a Voldkatini a Martini.A Martini uses Gin right?

  • Drew  (Jul 5, 2018))

    A traditional martini can be vodka or gin and was always purely the preference of the drinker. I like gin martinis.

  • franklen rocks  (Jun 14, 2018))

    Gin martini, dry martini, and vodka martini. All of them are different drinks. If your at a craft cocktail bar ordering a gin martini expect something very sweet
