How to Make the Bijou Cocktail Some seem to think the Bijou cocktail should be a layered drink, but it isnâ€™t. The Bijou (meaning jewel in French) cocktail was reportedly invented by Harry Johnson in the 1890's. The oldest recipe I have comes from his 1900 "New And Improved Bartenders Manual", where the instructions clearly state "mix well with a spoon and serve." I can understand why somebody might think the layered presentation would be more appropriate, but it was not the way this drink was originally intended.

How to Make a Singapore Sling The Singapore Sling was originally created by Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon for the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in the early 20th century.

How to Make a Tom Collins The recipe for the Tom Collins first appeared in the 1876 edition of Jerry Thomas' "The Bartender's Guide". Apparently named after a little practical joke popular around 1874 in which one person would tell someone on the street that Tom Collins is in a local bar and is talking about them. The now agitated person would hurry off to confront this Tom Collins and soon enough a forward thinking bartender created the drink. Check out the unique character of Beefeater 24 Gin!

How to Make the Gimlet The Gimlet is an old style navy drink most likely invented when sailors in the British navy mixed their ration of gin with lime juice.

Thus, Robert Hess shows you how to make a gimlet with Hendrick's Gin and Rose's Lime Juice, going against the idea that fresh is always better.

Moochies Mobile Munchies in Baton Rogue, LA While we were shooting in NOLA we got a call about a food cart in the state's capitol, Baton Rogue, that serves alligator po-boys. Naturally we had to take a trip out to investigate. What we happened upon was Moochie's Mobile Munchies, a late night LSU hotspot serving gluttonous burgers, brisket chili smothered fries, and their signature po-boy complete with not just an alligator sausage, but piled high will pulled pork. These things were massive. So massive, that a competition was called.
