Ethereal

ethereal

We’re mixing with the reposado Casa Noble today, so when mixing with a heavier tequila (or any heavier liquor) it’s best to remember that balance is the key. The Ethereal takes some of the sweeter notes and turns this into a borderline dessert cocktail, but it’s salvage by the quinine tang of the tonic. 3 […]

French Oak

The Dichotomy of Kansas Springs

Dichotomy (we moved the bottle to see the level of dust being kicked up)

Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Zephyr. It has been brutally windy the past four days here at Cocktails, 365 headquarters. So windy, in fact, that we’ve been making the news. I spoke with a colleague in California this afternoon who said the name Dodge City actually sauntered across their consciousness […]

Moonlight Lemonade

Moonlight Lemonade in Afternoon Sun

There’s something really beautiful about simple things combined to create something greater than their individual parts. Chocolate and peanut butter. Donuts and bacon. Cagney and Lacey. Among the best is moonshine and lemonade. Specifically, being all highfalutin and mixing moonshine with San Pellegrino Limonata for today’s cocktail. Perfect after a long hard day mowing the lawn […]

George Dickel White Corn Whisky #1

If you only Jack, you don't know Dick... el...

There’s something special about moonshine. It’s the purest form of the liquid we’ve all come to adore so much. Unadulterated, unfettered, it’s the virgin expression of the base spirit that we all strive for. At least when it’s done right. If not, it’s a screaming hellfire on earth that leaves you dying among the bushes, […]

Zephyrus

Zephyrus

We’re continuing to mix with the Brugal rum this week, which is a unique little piece of Dominican goodness – an extra dry white rum that hits all the right notes of rum, but takes on an almost whiskey like quality. Today’s cocktail is simple; a play off the classic Dark n’ Stormy traditionally made […]
