Okay, so last night we introduced you to the lineup (or rather, the mostly whole lineup) of TATRATEA – a Slovak black tea liqueur that has recently started to gain traction in the United States market. We’re heading down the line from left to right, keeping you entertained this Tuesday night by jumping up 10 […]

Okay, so at the beginning of last week, we talked about the opening of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. And, if we recall correctly, we also mentioned creating a cocktail for that show. And so we did! We have an opening night party coming up next week when the show opens, and today’s cocktail will be […]

Campari Part Two: Lucien Gaudin

lucien_gaudinfuzzy

Gin and Campari go together like cigars and scotch. The multi-layered complexity of the two liquors form together to put layer upon layer of flavor. It’s what forms the basis of the world-famous Negroni. However, there is another old-school cocktail that takes the traditional mixture and adds even more complexity. The Lucien Gaudin is a […]

Campari Part Two: Campari Collins

With it’s dark red color and sweet, citrus, bitterness Campari does turn out to be one of the best options heading into the fall months. You can straddle that delicate line between a cocktail that is too heavy for the hot temperatures but too light for the chill winds that sweep in from the north. […]

As we head into the end of September, that also means we approach the opening of another show at the local live theater, Depot Theater Company. This particular production of The Mousetrap is being directed by my wife and Cocktails, 365 executive editor, Jenn. That means that I’m in charge of the cocktail menu for […]

Laphroaig Part Two: Bantam

As we near the amateur hockey season (which is the highlight, as the NHL appears to be on its way to another lockout) you’ll forgive us if our minds turn to the ice and all that comes with the best sport on ice. Or, if you ask us, it’s more the best sport ever. So, […]

Laphroaig 10 Year Part Two: Dry Rob Roy

dryrobroy

Because the Laphroaig does offer up such a unique flavor profile, it only seems fair to feature in a cocktail that really focuses on the quality and flavor of the scotch as opposed to any complex mixing styles. The Rob Roy (or, essentially a Manhattan with scotch) really puts the Laphroaig 10 Year front and […]

Laphroaig 10 Year Part One: Taste Test

laphroaig

There are those who claim that the mere act of mixing a cocktail is an affront to the liquor that’s being used to mix. Doubly so for single malt scotches. However, we like say “screw tradition” and there are some great single malts out there that make excellent bases. We’ve proven in the past that […]
