Spiced Maple Old Fashioned
2 oz bourbon
0.75 oz spiced maple syrup
3 dashes angostura bitters
Spiced maple syrup: 0.5 cup of water and half a cup of bourbon. Throw in a few ginger rounds and 2-3 cloves and bring to a boil. Let sit for 15 minutes.
I don't think there is anything more perfect than enjoying a well made Martini on a Saturday night. Especially one presented in a beautiful vintage cocktail glass. #theglassmatters#martini#vintageglassware
Super stoked to be a part of the newly founded Juniper Society programme by Atlas bar - what a great idea for gin lovers all around. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!
Thank you guys 🙏🏻
Here's what I made with that @iichiko_usa #boozemail :
1 oz Iichiko Silhouette shochu
1 oz mango-infused @altostequila
1 oz lime
3/4 oz passionfruit syrup
3/4 oz cantaloupe juice
Sweet, fruity, and earthy. The first thing I thought when I tried this shochu was "I bet this shochu would like tequila." They're very different flavor profiles, but they both have an earthiness that complements each other.
Made an Old Fashioned from that @unclenearest whiskey:
2 oz Uncle Nearest
1 barspoon simple syrup
1 dash each @dcembitterment aromatic and orange bitters
Over a big piece of clear ice, with a lemon peel garnish.
Very straightforward, very smooth and mellow Old Fashioned. Classic.

1.5 oz gin
1 oz @donciccioefigli Finocchietto .5 oz vermouth
.5 oz lemon juice

Muddle orange slices in a cocktail shaker. Add gin, Finochietto, vermouth, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake and strain into a glass with ice.
🇫🇷 This was a cocktail 🥃 at @petittroisla and it was called "Despacito" because it's the hit of the summer. 🎶💥🌞 It had mangos and other things in it (technically) and was so delicious, especially in this heat. 🍈 #ringmybell 🔔 (Thanks to @vintageweave for letting me steal a sip-shot.)
Born Amidst Salt and Smoke:
1 oz @mezcalunion silver Mezcal
1 oz @altostequila mango-infused silver tequila
1 oz lime
1/2 oz passion fruit syrup
1/2 oz @liberandco pineapple gum
2 dashes @hellacocktailco smoked chili bitters
Shaken, then served over a big piece of clear ice. Garnished with a nasturtium, which I'm pretty sure are edible...
I've said it before, but Mezcal really loves tropical fruit flavors. It brings out a...juiciness...in the Mezcal, a vegetal juiciness, that reminds me of the juiciness you find in high-ester rums (which, unsurprisingly, are also affectionately called juice).
This is a very a very Tiki-like drink, with layered agave spirits and tropical flavors, but I wouldn't classify it as Tiki. The agave is too vegetal to really have the feel of a Tiki drink, even if it has the same spirit.
The chili bitters have some heat to them on their own, but the heat is muted in the final drink. They work more to make some of the fruit and agave notes pop.
