Confessions of a Mixologist: Punsch Drunk

Tagged:

This isn’t your Grandma’s punch. It’s mixed with Kronan Swedish Punsch, a Swedish liqueur with a sugar cane base from the East and West Indies. It adds an extra kick of toffee, smoke and molasses to the rum while the Cointreau offers a tangy twist. Try this punch at your next party and your guests will beg for the recipe.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Whiskey Sour

Tagged:

They don’t get much more classic than the whiskey sour. It has been around for more than a century, a sort of comfort cocktail that’s as easy to drink as it is to make. Start with whiskey – it doesn’t have to be great whiskey but it can’t hurt – and add the cut of citrus and the sweetness of sugar. It’ll bring you back to life after a weekend with the family or an afternoon running errands. With so many different whiskies to choose from, how will you decide?

Confessions of a Mixologist: Zu Keeper

Tagged:

If you’re new to trying Bison Grass Vodka, the Zu Keeper is a great introductory avenue. Have you tried zubrowka? In English, call it bison grass vodka, a rye vodka flavored with bison grass that gives the vodka its yellow tint. Bison carries subtle flavors including fresh herbs, vanilla, coconut and almond. Legend has it bison grass vodka has aphrodisiac properties. We can’t say one way or the other, but it is great with oysters. In the Zu Keeper, the vodka’s warm flavor mixes with the tart raspberry and lemon for a refreshing and complex cocktail.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Basil Gin Gimlet

Tagged:

You’ve never had a gimlet? What are you waiting for? It’s a classic combination of gin, lime and soda. Easy peasy. This refreshingly crisp cocktail delights with Sunday brunch, dinner salad or hummus and cheese. Our addition of basil gives the classic a savory twist. You’ll feel good drinking it, considering the herb’s great heath benefits. Make sure to muddle the basil into granulated sugar – the sugar’s sharp crystals tear open the basil to release its flavor.
