Howdy Geeks! Quick round up of our 3 favorite home bartending sites for craft cocktail fans. Not all of these sites are focused on home bartenders (some are more industry focused) but they’re all high quality and inspirational locations on the web for boozy trends, tips and cocktail recipes.
- Liquor.com – The mother-lode of cocktail recipe sites. Includes the fun blogger area DrinkWire which sometimes features our posts!
- ShakeStir – website and mobile app focused primarily on bartenders, in addition to bartender competitions, job postings and industry news, it also has a fab cocktail recipe section. Small caveat, you have to register to view most of the content, but don’t worry it’s free!
- Imbibe Magazine – the online version of the very well done Imbibe Magazine. Loads of recipes, blog posts and other liquid culture news.
What’s your favorite cocktail related site? (other than Geeks with Drinks of course!)

a friend and I are making traditional South African Biltong (a type of dried beef made with vinegar and spices) and are looking to pair with a cocktail.
First thought was an old fashioned, but after some deliberation felt that may be better with smoked beef jerky. (biltong is air cured and is slightly sour/funky tasting)
Any cocktail nerds out there have any ideas on a drink that would pair nicely with it ?
Oh… that’s a good challenge. I’ve never had Biltong myself, but after doing some reading around online, I found lots of suggestions for pairing Biltong with red wine or brandy.
Maybe a brandy cocktail? Like a sidecar with brandy (brandy, orange liqueur, and lemon juice)…
Or maybe something more spicy that holds its own against the beef – like a bloody mary?
Let us know what you come up with!!
Nice commentary . Coincidentally , if anyone is interested a a form , I filled out and faxed a blank version here
