The Rob Roy

There are few drinks that taste better than a fortifying and warming rye cocktail on a blustery March evening. Yes, I mean the Manhattan. But what if the Manhattan is out because nobody can make one properly (too little vermouth, not enough bitters)? Here comes the Rob Roy, a drink we’ve heard, but don’t know […]

THE BOULEVARDIER

The 3 ingredients cocktail I’m drinking all winter – like the Negroni, but, uh, better! The Boulevardier is one of those classic cocktails that everyone should drink on a regular basis. Essentially, it’s this wonderful combination of rye whiskey, Campari, and sweet vermouth or what you’d get if a Negroni and a Manhattan had a […]

The Liberal

Because what the world needs now is more rye cocktails. The Liberal is a fantastic, booze forward, elegant aperitif that is well worth the trouble.

the Vieux Carré

Confession time: at home, for the most part, I prefer to drink my whiskey neat. Pour a finger’s width or two of my favorite single malt and I’m happy mom! But when I’m out with friends, I like creativity with my booze. You know, a nice whiskey cocktail! It may not be Friday just yet, […]

THE BIJOU

A jewel from the 1880’s! A true gem that sparkles and shines that will put a twinkle in your eyes! A delicious, polished, multi-faceted cocktail that I bet you`ll declare a crown jewel! Don’t let the similarity to the Negroni fool you. It’s much sweeter, more vegetal, and has some serious bite. It gives you some […]
