Bourbon and Baker brings Mixology to the Little Apple


Don’t let the location fool you. Cocktail culture is alive and well in the Midwest. Just look as far as Bourbon and Baker in Manhattan, Kansas for proof.

Purple Rose of the Desert Sage


Back on June 14, the cocktail world celebrated National Bourbon Day. We celebrated, too, but perhaps a bit too much.

Ryegroni


Happy Negroni Week, for those of you sober enough to remember there was a reason you started drinking nothing but Negroni’s on Monday! From the Negroni Week website: Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. […]

REVIEW – Few Single Barrel


Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★☆

Worth a dram if only for the uniqueness of it. It stands apart, especially as a single malt American whiskey. It takes several times back to the draw for it to warm on you, but a lovely piece of Americana in liquid form.

REVIEW – FEW Bourbon Whiskey


Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★☆ Definitely not the ideal bourbon to introduce a newcomer, but for a small batch American, it’s a bit of brilliance, if not wholly balanced.

REVIEW – FEW Rye Whiskey


Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★★ This is one of the best ryes we’ve tasted at Cocktails, 365. It lacks some of the depth of a more aged spirit, but it’s that rawness that adds to the appeal.

REVIEW – Angel’s Envy Bourbon


Angel’s Envy neat is the spirit at its strongest. It embodies the perfect balance of sweetness and spice that you’d expect from a higher-quality bourbon. It finishes clean and is, perhaps, just a bit too easy to drink.

Prego Enferrujado


This variation of the Rusty Nail uses a single malt Islay (we like Ardbeg 10) in place of the recommended blended scotch, giving it a heavier, smokier flavor, and adds just a bit of Tawny port to deepen the sweetness and add a few more layers of flavor.

Celebrating Bourbon Heritage Month


Every day is a holiday anymore. Take a glance at any modern calendar (assuming it’s 1999 and you’re still using a wall calendar) and you’ll notice that September is full of holidays like Preparedness Month, Honey Month, Salami Day, and Spare Weasel Zealots Week. (Only one of those doesn’t exist.) However, we’re never ones to […]
