Three Cocktails for World Gin Day

The phrase “better letter than never” seems to truly define the Cocktails, 365 experience. We have these grand plans of involvement in major events in the cocktail movements of the day and then we promptly get involved with enjoying the event and not writing about it. Specifically, today, we’re talking about World Gin Day.


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.

Diva’s Lament

For the past several seasons, Cocktails, 365 has been honored to be the official mixologist of the Depot Theater Company and Imbibe! at the Depot Theater Company in Dodge City. We take our duty of making paired cocktails quite seriously. It’s all part of the upper level service people can expect when they come to […]

One Shade of Grey

Yeah, we went with a lazy 50 Shades of Grey pun. Sorry. No one ever said we weren’t lazy here at Cocktails, 365. Ambitious, sure. Lazy, even more so. This cocktail takes a bit of time and the right amount of balance, so be sure you’re paying attention to quantities while mixing, and not just […]


August 17, 2013 (Day 100) – Astoria We’re already on to day 100? Wow, these things move fast. 1.5 oz gin 0.75 oz dry vermouth 2 dashes orange bitters Lemon twist for garnish  

Curaçao Punch

As you can tell from the picture, this is a behemoth of a drink, and you really don’t want to be drinking several of these in a row. It will murder you. Figuratively and literally. It’s very good though, and very good for an afternoon spent with friends and family.

Improved Gin Cocktail

June 8, 2013 (Day 29) – Improved Gin Cocktail We’re going back to the old, old, incredibly old school beats of where the term “cocktail” actually originated. You see, a cocktail, in the classic definition, isn’t anything close to the umbrella term we use today, dedicated to every single mixed drink that included alcohol. No, […]


June 6, 2013 (Day 27) – Ramona Another one from good ol’ Bill Edwards How to Mix Drinks. 2 oz Old Tom Gin 1 oz fresh lemon juice 1 spring fresh mint Simple syrup to taste Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with cubed ice (the bigger the better, you’re going to […]

Southern Cocktail

June 4, 2013 (Day 26) – Southern Cocktail This recipe appeared in the 1932 book Shake ‘Em Up! by Virginia Elliott & Phil D. Stong. This book is particularly fun to read through, as it offers up not just cocktail recipes, but also the right hors d’oeuvres to serve with each one. In more ways than one, […]

Morning Glory Cocktail

June 1, 2013 (Day 23) – Morning Glory Cocktail The Morning Glory Cocktail originally appeared in The Professor’s original cocktail book. Like many from that time, it was meant to be drank in the morning. Mainly to waylay feeling like death warmed over from the previous night’s drinking. It was vicious cycle. Take 3 dashes […]
