        Actually, a couple of them don't sound that bad - namely, The Cool Jerk and Bourbon Baked Apple (as long as they don't go overboard with the sweet components.) Same for Smokey Julep and the Primo Paloma.

        Agree that most of the others do sound bad, and since this is a celeb-owned place they most likely will go overboard with the sweet stuff.

        Leave it to Guy Fieri to make kocktails klassy.

        Though to be fair, there's quite a few really decent drinks on there. A Moscow Mule made with Gosling's ginger beer served in a frosted copper mug? Sounds perfect to me!

          But that has nothing to with Guy. It is a well established Cocktail.

            I know -- I've had them many times. Since people were complaining that Guy's 'kocktail' menu was made of the "worst of cocktails" and that he'd probably "go overboard with sweet stuff", I was pointing out that his Moscow Mule was very traditional and authentic.

            So what does the copper mug do for the cocktail, except make it look cool? I'm serious, not being sarcastic.

              Seriously: nothing. It was a marketing gimmick for the Mule from day one.

                Nothing, it's just nice and cold and frosty. The apocryphal tale goes that the Moscow Mule was invented when a ginger beer distributor and a Smirnoff vodka distributor were drinking together and bemoaning their lousy sales when they thought "hey, let's invent a drink that puts our products together". Then they remembered a friend who made copper mugs and had a surplus, and they invented The Moscow Mule, which became a huge fad in the '40s.

                That has to be the stupidest menu I've ever seen.

                    That is the first time i've seen it, parts had me laughing out loud.

                      Oh wait, it's a joke. It is so close to Fieri's own shtick and the URL is so close I thought it was real.

                        Took me a minute too - the first thing I read was "Guy's big balls", I missed the part about the cheese balls being 4 lbs each the first time I read it.

                            Evidently, Fieri didn't register the full name of his Guy-tastic restaurant and some genius took full advantage. It's so good.

                            It's so funny precisely because it's so close!
