The World's Simplest Craft Cocktails - Smoked Honey Whiskey Sour

When we think about the oldest "old school" cocktails, one that is making a welcomed resurgence is the Whiskey Sour.  For what seemed like, well, way too long, some people (including some who called themselves 'bartenders') had been using fluorescent green and yellow "sour mix" that only had the word 'sour' in common with lemons (as it is doubtful any real juice was an ingredient). This was a crime and if you are still guilty of the mass produced "sour mix" usage, step away from it immediately.

The World's Simplest Craft Cocktails - The Old Fashioned

After spending what seems like every waking minute on new product development, we thought we would share some of the good stuff we have been working on to bring to you.  If you know us, you know that one of our Favorite cocktails is the Old Fashioned. History tells us that the famous cocktail (and the first to use the now ubiquitous term "cocktail") originated in the early 1800s. The Old Fashioned was created and served at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, KY and later brought to the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.
