Modern-day Warrior 2 parts (1 oz) Canadian Rye Whiskey [Crown Royal] 1 part (1/2 oz) Canadian Maple Liqueur 1 part (1/2 oz) lime juice 2 parts (1 oz) Ramazzotti Combine in a shaker, shake with ice. Strain over an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with Rush vinyl album of your choice. RIP Neil Peart (1/7/2020) Oof, the world lost a legend this past weekend. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the man was part octopus. His skill on the kit was unmatched, not to mention his wonderful, fantasmical lyric writing. Literally the beating heart of one the most powerful power trios ever to ta ..read more

Leaf Blower 1 oz Apple Cider 1 oz Cognac [Camus VSOP] 1/2 oz Becherovka 1/2 oz Honey Liqueur [Barenjager] Shake with ice. Strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with apple slice (freshly gathered leaves optional). First off, apologies for the extended radio silence. I’v admittedly be focusing more on the instagram stuff, but I figure it’s time to get back to where it all started. It may not be on a weekly cadence, but my plan is to recommit to firing off more blog posts for a while. Now, with that out of the way – let me tell you about Fall. It’s hands down one of my favorit ..read more

Stingy Brim 1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey [Cali Distillery] 3/4 oz Grapefruit liqueur [Giffard] 3/4 oz Honey liqueur [Barenjager] Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass.  Garnish with grapefruit twist. There are lots of ways I come up with cocktails.  The ol’ switcheroo, mashups, and even actual food dishes.  Today I’d like to talk about another method we’ll call cocktails on steroids.  The idea is simple, take a drink that usually has some elements of fruit juice and/or syrups, then replace those with actual liqueurs to make a boozy version of the original. The first time I can remember doin ..read more

Bouquet Spritz 2 oz Vermouth [D’Pampe] 3/4 oz Rose Liqueur [Wild Moon] .5 oz Elderflower liqueur [St. Elder] .25 oz lemon juice Shake with ice.  Strain into an ice filled rocks glass.  Top with ~2 oz of Prosecco.  Garnish with lemon “rose”. A week or so ago I was out somewhere and got a Spritz, and was reminded of how deliciously simple they are.  Right then and there, I decided this was going to be the #summorofspritzes.  After all, they are best enjoyed outside, ideally with the sun on your face.  While the weather hasn’t quite turned the corner here in New England, I decided to kick t ..read more

Better Know a Classic: Gimlet

Vodka Gimlet 2 oz Vodka [Bradford] 3/4 – 1 oz Homemade Lime Cordial Combine in a tin, shake with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime twist. My father-in-law is going to be very excited about this post. I’d have to say the gimlet is his go-to drink. Like most people with their preferred tipples, he’s very particular about them too. When he orders one, he expects the classic tart sweetness of Rose’s Lime Cordial. According to him, fresh lime and sugar just isn’t the same – and since this is his drink, I’ll follow his lead. But we can do better than the high fructose ..read more

Bee’s Skis 2 oz Barrel Aged Gin [Caledonia Spirts Tom Cat] 1/2 oz Maple Syrup 1/2 oz Lemon Juice Shake with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist. A few weeks ago I went on a ski trip with some friends for the weekend to Jay Peak in Vermont. Knowing that I enjoy a good cocktail now and then, one of them suggested I come up with a drink we could all enjoy. Having to manage a range of tastebuds can sometimes be challenging, so I often start with the classics. In this case, the Bee’s Knees was my inspiration. Being the lover of whiskey that I am, I wanted t ..read more
