Smallscreen cocktails: Smallscreen Cocktails is an amalgamation of three major components — cocktails, bartending and mixology. The channel has hundreds of videos where they feature cocktail luminaries such as Robert Hess, Jamie Boudreau, Kathy Casey, Charlotte Voisey, Jeffrey Morgenthaler, Dave Stolte and more, which add a variety to the channel. A lot of their cocktails look fancy and brunch-ready but the step-by-step videos make it easy to follow at home. After all, who wouldn’t love a Smoldering Rose Cocktail in a fancy glass while wearing ugly Christmas sweaters.

TIPSY BARTENDER: We don’t know what’s more energetic, the boozy cocktails or the vibe that Tipsy Bartender brings to his videos. Watching his videos is like watching a friend whip up a cocktail for you, with the ingredients present in your own kitchen. His concoctions range from a milky based to an icy one, a candy based to a fire one... and some that will make you go, “Erm, are you sure?” But we guess his confidence is enough to at least try one or more of his recipes. The bartender from Santa Monica can turn boxed Franzia wine into something fancy and has even created a fish tank pitcher to be shared with friends. Talk about creativity!
