    Fever Tree is a favorite of the Barrel to Bottle Crew. Pat samples a lot of mixers so he would know. But we want to know, why does Fever Tree have so many varieties? Alex Brick is here to answer that question, and mix up a range of cocktails from the traditional to the unique.

  7. Rakefire

    Rakefire

    Rakefire is an old British pejorative for a person who outstays their welcome in someone's home until the fire has burned down to a few remaining embers. It also evokes thoughts of smoldering piles of leaves, dried sheaves of old John Barleycorn and cool autumn evenings. This is the perfect nightcap for the rakefire in your life. Instead of ushering such intrepid night owls out the door, you might as well mix up a Rakefire, make up the couch and go to bed, leaving your oblivious friend to contemplate the glowing embers of their life. The success of this drink revolves around using a sufficiently peaty Scotch. Dewer’s White Label will do if you want to just hint at nostalgic notions of burning leaves, but we recommend Ardbeg Wee Beastie 5 year for the full fall experience.

  8. Tea of Knowledge

    Tea of Knowledge

    The apple and spice profile of this cocktail screams autumn. Not only that, it can be made into a classy and cool cocktail served up or on the rocks and is easily modified into a comforting riff on the Hot Toddy. Just add a crisp fall evening and maybe a hayride through the countryside to complete the scene.

  9. Rattle Skull

    Rattle Skull

    Beer cocktails don’t get much attention these days. Probably because craft beer has morphed into an adjunct-laden playground where new releases are already tantamount to a cocktail, straight out of the bottle. The Rattle Skull really has no pre-made corollary and is certainly worth whipping up on a cool autumn or winter’s night. Consider employing it as a welcoming cocktail for your beer loving friends over the holiday season (it’s great way to kick off Thanksgiving) or as the perfect nightcap to enjoy by a cozy, comforting fire. This is old school, potent and packed with rich warming flavors. It always elicits raves from craft beer and cocktail fans alike.

  10. Barrel to Bottle: Quarantinis IV - The Gang Picks a Fight with Stanley Tucci

    Barrel to Bottle: Quarantinis IV - The Gang Picks a Fight with Stanley Tucci

    Stanley Tucci has a lot to learn about making a Negroni. The question is, does he hunger for knowledge on this classic cocktail, or does he just want to play games? As Roger runs through all the ways in which The Tooch screwed up this cocktail, the Barrel to Bottle spends their big night screwing up this cocktail. But the great thing about a Negroni is you can transform it into almost anything.
