Confessions of a Mixologist: On Second Thought…

Tagged:

On Second Thought is a twist on the classic cocktail, The Last Word. Bartender Colleen wanted to use Rhubarb Tea Liqueur, an 80-proof spirit that’s a blend of rhubarb, lemon, and beets, along with spices like cardamom, pink peppercorns, and coriander. It compliments the gin well and creates a mix of floral and bitter flavors with a tart bite – very similar to the taste of Sweetheart candies. Super delish!

The Whiskey Hotline: Casa Maestri Tequila Blanco Flask

Tagged:

With the weather warming up, its hard to beat a crisp, clean, citrusy blanco tequila. Casa Maestri produces many different tequila brands out of their distillery (NOM-1438 for you tequila geeks at home) but this one in particular caught our attention with it’s added value, a flask! Not just any flask, but a 1.75 liter flask. Not only is the tequila great, but since the flask goes to 11, we mean 1.75, this is not a deal to pass on.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Pink Pearl

Tagged:

The real MVP in this cocktail is the Combier Pamplemousse. It gets its flavor and light pink color by steeping hand-picked rose petals in neutral alcohol. Pretty cool, huh? Typically paired with Champagne, Bartender Brittney decided to mix it with tequila. Our Pink Pearl is the ultimate patio sipper and is as simple and delicious as it gets.

Binny’s Humidor: Marca Binny’s XXV by La Aurora

Tagged:

We wanted to do something special to celebrate our 25th anniversary in the cigar business. We’ve had quite a few cigars blended for Binny’s, and each one is a labor of love. When the opportunity arose to do something different we jumped at the chance.

Confessions of A Mixologist: Brandy Alexander

Tagged:

We’re digging up an old classic. The Brandy Alexander is sweet as a candy bar and is full of nutmeg, eggnog and cinnamon flavors. Bartender Brittney describes the flavors as the bottom of an ice cream tub – and we couldn’t agree more. Speaking of ice cream, if you’re looking to shake things up, try blending all of the ingredients with two scoops of vanilla ice cream for one delicious treat.

Whiskey Hotline: Oola Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey

Tagged:

This Seattle distillery was founded in 2010 and has been consistently delivering quality and taste ever since. Whether it’s whiskey, vodka, or gin this is a distillery that should be on your radar. Waitsburg is a 4-grain bourbon (corn, wheat, rye, and barley) and is full of depth. Lots of classic rye spiciness on the nose with an unmistakably creamy wheat mouthfeel. Waitsburg starts its life in 10-gallon barrels before being transferred to more traditional 53-gallon barrels for extended aging. It’s youthful and fresh, but without all the excessive oak you usually get from small barrels.

Binny’s Humidor: Torano Vault

Tagged:

Torano has once again opened the Vault and to our smoking pleasure comes the Torano Vault yellow W-009. From Torano’s vault, the Yellow W-009, available in two sizes. Wrapped in a Jalapa sun grown wrapper, with a Honduran Jamastran binder and filler as well as a touch of La Entrada filler for good measure – this vault release is worth the wait. Come in and see why these were locked away in Toran’s vault.
