Video Challenge: Battle of the Red Bull Cocktails
Cocktail snobs claim that it's impossible to make a serious cocktail with an energy drink on the ingredient list, and we decided to put that notion to the test with a video challenge at Sable in Chicago. The restaurant has an extensive and well-respected bar program, and although they do not carry Red Bull (or Smirnoff Ice, as you'll see in the above video), we bought some at a nearby 7-Eleven and challenged the mixologists to work their magic. Mike Ryan, John Stanton and Alex Renshaw all came up with some truly creative cocktails, and one was named the winner - but did they taste good? Well, you'll just have to watch the video to find out.
Tell us in the comments which drink you think looks best, and check out more food challenges on our YouTube page.
