Having recently been March 17th, which is essentially Irish-beer awareness day, we decided to test if we could tell the difference between Guinness draught in the can (with a widget) and in a bottle (nitrogenated, but without a widget).

Triangle Testing: A Detailed Procedure for Blind Taste Tests of Beverages
From time to time we plan on performing a form of taste test, called a triangle test. What follows is the basic framework that will be used in those future tests.
Orange Liqueur vs Margarita 2
We’ve been here before, but this time we have some new orange liqueurs to try out, so let’s do a taste test!
Lime Juice vs The Margarita

A foam for the masses: The Trump MKIII

Prototyping an election night drink: The Trump
Here at Doing Science to Stuff headquarters we are quite fond of themed drinks. For presidential elections we like to make two drinks, one for each candidate. We then take a sip from the appropriate candidate’s drink whenever a state is called for that candidate. While we have a couple basic recipes in mind, there are some parameters that need to be fine tuned. In this installment we will be optimizing a ratio of ingredients for the drink to represent Donald Trump.
Cinnamon vs the Monkey Bread
Having acquired some fancy cinnamon we wanted to try it out… enter the monkey bread!
Orange Liqueurs Again!
We previously tested different orange liquors in our standard Sidecar cocktail recipe, but times have changed and there are new flavors on the market. Up next: O3 versus Clockwork Orange from New Holland distillery.
