Whiskey, And How to Drink It

Whiskey cocktails highlight the spirit’s most notable attributes and also offer cocktail enthusiasts an opportunity to appreciate its depth and nuance. Blending particularly well with citrus and sweetness, whiskey’s robust nature also makes it a natural pairing with herbs like mint and rosemary. Scotch with a sugar cube steeped in a dash Angostura bitters topped with Prosecco or your favorite champagne. For a taste of the Big Easy, you can’t go wrong with a Carthusian Sazerac, which combines 2.5 oz. of rye whiskey with a splash of green Chartreuse, half an ounce of simple syrup, and a dash of lemon bitters served in a rocks glass with an absinthe rinse.

All About Sloe Gin

Sloe Gin for the Win: One of the great challenges (and joys) of mixology is learning about how many spirits and liqueurs there are out there to sample and experiment with. The cocktail world is rich in variety, and no matter how much you learn it still seems there is more to be discovered. If you’ve ever wondered “what is sloe gin and how is it different from other gin I love?” you’ve come to the right place.

Blackberry Mint Shrub Rum Cocktail

In our opinion, blackberry cocktails are great for any season! If you’ve never made a shrub before, we highly recommend it. This shrub cocktail embodies a trio of flavors that are show stopping: blackberry, mint, and lime. Those flavors infused together and accompanied by rum and club soda make a refreshing, slightly sweet cocktail that is great for a night in or to serve guests.

Honey Herb Grapefruit Mocktail

If you’re in the mood for a tasty mocktail during dry January, this is it! This honeyed herb mocktail takes an extra step or two to infuse long lasting flavors, but it’s well worth it. A rosemary honey syrup takes center stage alongside citrus juices of grapefruit, lemon, and cara cara oranges. One good long shake with ice combines the grapefruit base with the rosemary honey syrup for a deep pink concoction with a tantalizing, zesty, and tangy finish.
