Binny’s Handpicked Clyde May’s

Binny’s is proud to be the first retailer to participate in Clyde May’s single barrel journey. That’s right – get it here first. Clyde May’s is known for their Alabama style whiskey, a unique process in which they gently fold essential oils from granny smith apples into their finished high-rye bourbons, adding apple and cinnamon flavors. Their mash bill contains 55% corn, 30% rye and 15% barley. Scroll down to learn about the three we picked. We can’t promise you won’t salivate…

And it’s here where golf legends are crowned.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Margarita Classics

Tagged:

Take Your Margarita to the Top Shelf. There’s a reason that when you think Mexican food, the first cocktail that comes to mind is the margarita. The citrus and sweet character is a timeless match with spicy, salty, saucy Mexican cuisine. If you’re looking to impress, these two tips will help you make the perfect, crowd-pleasing margarita:

 
Better Ingredients Make a Better Margarita. Start with tequila you actually like, and build from there. Milagro Reposado is delicious, a great value, and works as a solid foundation for a margarita that overdelivers. Also, try an orange liqueur with a brandy base, such as Grand Marnier, to give your drink a layer of complexity beyond the sweet orange of less expensive triple sec.

 

Use Fresh Lime Juice. Sure, margarita mix is an easy solution – just add tequila, right? But all that sugar tends to overpower most other flavors – from the tequila in your drink to the flavor of the food, too. Not to mention the extra calories! Fresh fruit juice and a good orange liqueur offer just enough sweetness for a fresh and balanced cocktail.
