Confessions of a Mixologist: Mezcal Negroni

Tagged:

We’re mixing things up with this classic gin cocktail. Instead of gin, we’re adding mezcal. It adds a smokey flavor that blends magically with the sweet and bitter flavors in the cocktail. If you’re not familiar with the Negroni, it is widely known as an aperitif but most certainly can be enjoyed as a cocktail at any time. The drink’s origins are pretty much unknown but what we do know is how it got its name. A Count by the name of Camillo Negroni asked his bartender at a small cafe in Italy in the early 1900s to make a few alterations to the already existing drink, such as gin in place of soda water and an orange garnish instead of lemon. Shortly after the drink grew in popularity, the Negroni family opened their own distillery and started creating a ready-made version of this classic cocktail.

When it comes to summer cocktails, nothing quite beats gin. Crisp, complex, and refreshing, gin is an adaptable spirit showcasing a broad range of flavors: from citrus to pine to spice and many others.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Mezcal Old Fashioned

Tagged:

The Old Fashioned is a cocktail staple and has stayed the most consistent since its origin compared to other long-standing cocktails. In the early 1800’s when the word “cocktail” was defined as a “potent concoction of spirits, bitters, water and sugar,” the Old Fashioned was called a bittered sling. The only slight change we’ve seen over the past 200 years or so is the popular switch from rye whiskey to bourbon. And now – Mezcal. We’re adding the smoke to this popular classic.

Blackwell Rum is one of our new favorite Jamaican rums to hit the shelf. It has a light body, but carries a strong kick of tropical flavors. The ginger beer adds a refreshing spice to the sweet flavors in the rum. Protip – let the pineapple soak in the rum before using as a garnish.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.

Tagged:

Whiskey Acres Distilling Co., our new friends from Dekalb don’t have to go very far for their corn and wheat. Their tagline, “from seed to spirit,” says it all. They grow all of their grain on the farm and then use it to make their whiskey. We can’t lie – it’s pretty delicious. We have also waited patiently and their farm to glass bourbon is finally here! Whiskey Acres uses wheat as a secondary grain which helps create a softer, more rounded spirit. It’s great on a rock or mixed into your favorite cocktail.
