Speaking of World's SImplest Craft Cocktails... We thought that there would be no better way to celebrate National Margarita Day, than to post another World's Simplest Craft Cocktail a la Margarita.
Sometimes the best craft cocktails are new takes on old classics. Today, we take a spin on the classic Collins. We call it the Voiron Collins, named for the small town in France, from where Chartreuse is made.
So you're an expert at making the Old Fashioned thanks to our earlier post, but it's the holidays, so what about something a little more seasonal? We know you're probably thinking "wait a second, this sounds harder than a traditional Old Fashioned", but have no fear, we have your holiday back on this one.
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.
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.
