Companies are constantly offering us samples of new and exciting liquors to review each week, and as equal opportunity drinkers we find it very difficult selecting which brands to review and share with you. It doesn't seem fair! I guess the only proper thing to do, is to share only the results of we liked best... That's why this week we're reviewing Phillips Union Whiskey, Sobieski Karamel Vodka, and Denizen White Rum. Thirsty? Then make sure to check out our full reviews and chug-worthy mixed drink recipes after the jump!

Here at COED we don't always agree on everything, but if there's one thing we do agree on, it's that testing and tasting liquor week in and week out is a pretty awesome job!

Special thanks goes out to our friends over at Reyka, Peligroso, and OG Brandy who made it all possible. Check out our full reviews and drink recipes after the jump.
The old saying "never judge a book by its cover" is solid advice.

So stick around and check this week's reviews and drink recipes, which include Famous Vodka, American Honey, and Chambord after the jump!
Maybe it’s because I always see Top Chefs do it, maybe it’s become I’m a borderline alcoholic; but to me, cooking with alcohol has always been the height of sophistication. Of course, the same cannot be said for the contents of my liquor cabinet, so I had to settle for these recipes. They’re all pretty good, especially if you drink the booze while you mix it in. Check out the greatest recipes to use with a college-level liquor selection after the jump.
I’m going to tell you a secret. Most of the delicious and impressive meals your friends have cooked you, they didn’t cook. The trick to making a meal seem totally home made is great boxed side dishes. After all, why do you think there is a Trader Joe’s in almost every college town? Here are some of the best boxed side dishes for every type of meal. Check 'em out after the jump.
Now don't let anyone fool you, it's a damn hard job testing and tasting hundreds of bottles of booze each year, all while staying sober enough to write about it, but here at COED we've got your back! This week is no exception as we take a look at Knickerbocker Gin, Hapsburg Absinthe, and Alma Tequila. Don't forget to check out our reviews and drink recipes after the jump!
There are a few things you can’t avoid in life. Death, a pregnancy scare or two, and moochers. If you’re going to have friends in life, and you’re going to have them over to your home, they need to eat. And some of them are going to try to eat too much. Yes, they are @ssholes. But you are more of one if you cut them off from the food supply. So, instead of freaking out when you realize they just ate the entire batch of weed brownies you freshly baked, be prepared with other options. Check out the full list after the jump.
Whether your drink of choice is tequila, rum, or vodka we've got you covered in this week's installment of Drinks Of The Week!

Check out our full reviews and mixed drink recipes after the jump!
This week we're bringing you a little bit of everything, including a 9 year aged whiskey from the folks over at Beam Global better known as Knob Creek. We've also tasted and tested a relatively unknown vodka by the name of Spring44. Finally, we wrap it all up with a truly unique apple pie moonshine infusion from our good friends over at Ole Smokey distillery. What are you waiting for? Check out our full reviews and mixed drink recipes after the jump!
Humans evolved to like fatty, fatty foods. The more calories packed into the smaller package, the better. Why? Because before refrigerators, we were afraid we wouldn’t come across food for a while. This could be one reason why I looooove peanut butter so much (at least I’m telling myself that). I can pick up on the tiniest hint of it in anything. Those are my ancestral fat-feelers going off. Anyways, if you feel the same way about the creamy stuff, or if you're just drunk and finally have the guts to eat this often guilt-ridden food, you might like these alternative ways to use it. Check out our rad recipes after the jump.

The crazy things you did in college were kind of cute, like when you would eat Easy Mac with a bag of frozen peas...still frozen. But now if a girl comes over (or more likely your parents) and you're still 'cooking' like you're in a stoned frenzy desperately pulling something together to satisfy the munchies, you will look more than a little amateur. Try putting on your big boy pants and learn to cook these meals after the jump!
The healthy bandwagon. Not a convenient thing to jump on during barbecue season. Nonetheless, Memorial Day is around the corner and that means it’s time for poolsides and back yard cook outs. The thing is, more and more girls are going on gluten-free, fat-free, meat-free and generally most conventional-barbecue-free-item diets. Luckily, more than your usual hamburgers and hotdogs can be thrown on a barbecue. So you can still 'cook' for that banging chick and keep you friends happy simultaneously. Embrace the change and maybe she'll embrace you
Gentlemen, it's time to man up. We're all sick and tired of watching grown men elbow their way to the front of the bar, only to order some fruity vodka-infused drink with a sexually suggestive name. It's not funny, and it sure as hell isn't what a man should be ordering at a bar. If you are content to down sorority house swill in neon colors for the rest of your life, read no further. If however, you want to take off your little boy clothes and don the sophisticated suit of manhood, follow our lead as we explore the intimidating, yet rewarding world of manly drinks!
We all know that dorm rooms don't have stoves - probably for good reason - which causes a major problem in the area of cooking, or at least preparing adequate food. In an effort to save you from eating Top Ramen for the rest of your days at college, the "culinary experts" at COED decided to come together and make a list of the top 9 microwave recipes so that you - the average dorm room student - may better your eating habits. This way, you can avoid some of that greasy mystery meat in the dining halls and show off a little to the other people on your floor in the process. Check out our top 9 picks after the jump!
Not everyone's a turkey person. Even some pilgrims were turned off by dry, smelly turkey. Here are two alternative meals to try out this Thanksgiving, plus a dessert idea to please every palate. And with little preparation time, you'll have more fun hanging out with your loved ones on T-Day than checking in on a slow-cooking turkey every hour.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and there's no reason that you should spend it eating nothing but stale cereal and questionably old milk. Learn how to cook a few breakfast basics and you'll be sure to impress your stomach, as well as your friends. And maybe you'll even be able to convince that special someone to spend the day in bed with you.

While my favorite way to drink whisky is warm and neat, that's a hard beverage to stomach during the scorching-hot summer months. So to help you cool down, while still keeping whisky solidly in your diet, the best way to go is the cocktail. My two favorite whiskies to mix are Canadian Club 10-year-old and 12-year-old. These two refreshing yet flavorful spirits go great with a wide variety of mixers. Here are the 6 Canadian Club cocktails I think kick the most ass.
Holy frijoles it's Cinco de F'ing Mayo! And that means as much tequila drinking as you can cram into 24 hours.
