Sailor’s Delight

Sailor's Delight ® Cocktails, 365 2015

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight.

Episode 2 of Three Cups Deep Warren Bobrow Behind the every cocktail there is a story. A bit of writing, a bit of prose, a bit of a thread of a narrative that each drinker or mixologist or author ascribes, enhances, and then deepens and expands. It’s that story, just as much as the recipe, […]

Sure, you can pick up some sweet basil and make one damn fine basil-gin concoction. In fact, the gin-bail smash using “standard” gin is STILL this […]

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.
