Vodka made entirely from MILK?! Black Cow Vodka is perhaps the first of its kind in the world made from discarded whey - a bi-product of cheese production. Co-founder Paul "Archie" Archard talks about how this harebrained idea came to be, how Black Cow is one of the most sustainable spirits being made, and why milk is the perfect organic ingredient to make vodka with.

Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur was created 5 years ago in Australia by distiller Philip Moore & coffee-enthusiast/designer, Tom Baker. A first of its kind, Mr Black is a coffee liqueur made with single origin cold brew coffee & Australian wheat vodka. It has half the sugar and 10 times the coffee of traditional coffee liqueurs - a cold brew spirit for coffee purists. At the official LA launch, I sat down with co-founder Tom Baker and Mr Black’s Global Coffee Ambassador, Martin Hudak.

Bit by a Fox Podcast

Sake may be known as a Japanese rice wine but the process of making the stuff is closer to beer making, and it may be one of the most versatile drinks to have with food. Tim Sullivan, this week's guest, is an unlikely expert and educator of sake, but after devoting the last decade to sake, and learning the craft of sake brewing in Japan, Tim is now one of the top sake experts in the US, a national sake educator, and a Global Brand Ambassador of Hakkaisan Sake Brewery based in Niigata, Japan.

Last week we kicked off a Gay Pride Month series on the podcast. We’re devoting the rest of the month to LGBTQ stories - the importance of gay bars and clubs through history, the cultural impact of the movements that came out of those important spaces, and the renegades, revolutionaries and icons behind it all. It’s such a big subject, we’ve created our first podcast series for #PrideMonth. In this second episode in this series, we touch on the gay club culture in the 70s and 80s - the music, dancing, drag, sex, and drugs involved in the queer club scene, and how it crossed over and influenced straight/mainstream culture through the years.

Our guest this week is Emily Colucci, a writer and arts curator based in New York City. Emily is co-founder of Filthy Dreams,a blog analyzing art and culture through a queer lens and a touch of camp.

This week's featured cocktail happens to be one of the most popular cocktails of the disco era: The Harvey Wallbanger. This drink was heavily advertised all throughout the 70s to promote sales of Galliano Liqueur which, in turn, became the most popular liqueur in America during the decade.

Harvey Wallbanger
2 oz Vodka
4 oz Fresh orange juice
3/4 oz Galliano

Add vodka and orange juice to a tall, ice-filled highball glass. Float the Galliano on top and stir. Garnish with orange wheel and enjoy.
