Rye and Shine

Rye and Shine

The stronger bite of the rye will take some of that syrup off, and the addition of the fresh lemon juice brings out the bite from the Dewshine. The Angostura bitters (or really any type of bitters you may like) will balance it out and give some extra depth.

Viva Villa

Brilliant in its simplicity – the Viva Villa features tequila front and center with the remaining ingredients playing the Pips to the tequila’s Gladys Knight.

And with us coming from a three-day weekend that is […]

The North Shore similarly relies on the gin to stand up to the heavier flavors playing along.

American Scribbles keeps the FEW American Gin front and center, and tempers some of the sweetness with the bitters and plays on the citrus bite with the orange liqueur.

Cook County

We took the FEW Rye and plugged it into the classic Martinez cocktail, switched up the bitters, and added a little bit of citrus to play off the rye.
