Vintage Cocktails

I pulled a fast one on some super nice folks who think I was a good candidate to bar cater a party thingy where I wear a tie and make drinks from the 1920s and not spill purple stuff on myself and others.

In honor of what I’m SURE will be a triumphant vest wearing, your loving caretakers will make you 1920s drinks as well. Why is that interesting? Well, ’cuz you couldn’t even drink in this country in the ’20s, much less invent. AaaaaHAAA!

Here’s a couple vintage cocktails that talented people who aren’t me will make for customers who are you:

SEELBACH: Bourbon, Cointreau, Bitters, Champaigne

TUXEDO #2: Gin, Maraschino, Orange Bitters

HOTEL NACIONALE: Rum, Pineapple, Lime, Apricot

BEES KNEES: Gin, Honey, Lemon, Bitters.

Whee. Tonight. Etc.

So, yeah. Amanda’s moving or something, which I’m sad about. She’ll be here for a few weeks yet, dropping glasses and laughing inappropriately though, so take advantage of her goofiness while you can.

So: Here’s what’s being made exclusively for you. And by “exclusively you,” I mean everyone who comes to the bar.

That Weird Chill
Gin, Lemon, Breckenridge Bitters, Violette Liqueur

Manzana Fizz
Rye, Calvados, Lemon, Cointreau, Soda.

Blackthorn Buzz
Gin, Sipsmith Sloe Gin (this s**t is awesome, by the way), Vanilla Bitters

Damasko
Bourbon, Apricot Hooch, Honey, Cocchi Blanco Vermouth

See you tonight, 6ish, k?

Big Perfect Gin

Big Gin

If you’ve heard me talk about local booze, you know it’s a mixed bag in my book. Some of it’s terrible, some of it’s good, and a few are outstanding.

Cuz it’s how I roll, I finally got around to buying one of the absolute best – Big Gin and Big Gin Bourbon Barrel Aged. I’m a nut for gin and theirs makes my arm hairs stand up and tummy sleepy. And the barrel aged one is the best locally made booze I’ve ever had, full stop.

So, we’ll try not to hack it up too badly by making some drinks with it tonight

Perfection is: Big Gin Jasmine: Big Gin, Lemon, Cointreau, Campari. Just sayin’.
