Variation on the classic Bramble!⠀
Double tap if this looks refreshing!⠀
45 mL (1 1/2 oz) gin⠀
22.5ml (3/4 oz) fresh lemon juice⠀
7.5 mL (1/4 oz) blackberry shrub⠀
7.5 mL (1/4 oz) simple syrup⠀
15 mL (1/2 oz) crème de mûre⠀
Add the gin, lemon juice, blackberry shrub and simple syrup into a chilled rocks glass over crushed ice, then pour the crème de mure over the top so that it “bleeds” down through the ice. Garnish with 2 or 3 blackberries.⠀
A light and refreshing cocktail. Since this drink is served with soda you don't want to dilute much with the shake. Add a couple small pieces of crushed ice and shake quickly just long enough to mix ingredients ------------------------------------------
3/4 oz simple syrup (1:1 sugar and water)
3/4 oz lemon juice
2 oz Gin
Top with soda water ------------------------------------------
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake briefly with couple small pieces of ice. Strain into a frozen collins glass filled with ice and top with club soda. Garnish with a maraschino cherry #cocktails#cocktailbar#classiccocktails#bartenderlife#bartenders#bartending#bartender#speakeasy#cocktail#gin#alcohol#liquor#tomcollins#thirsty

Kaf Tai: Bruichladdich whisky, kaffir lime sherbet, hot mango chutney, sesame oil & mango (£20). This cocktail stood out on the menu and when I asked what the waitress recommended, she said this was her favourite drink. It's a grand cocktail - strong without being harsh, fruity without being too sweet and spicy without overpowering the other flavours. In other words, it has balance. Sketch has been around for a while, but this visit convinced me it's still got it (previous visits on weekdays and a Saturday made me think otherwise). The interior of The Glade Bar is magical and the pod toilets are still worth a visit - particularly for the selfie generation. My main motivation behind doing Instagram is providing information so others can visit the best places, avoid the worst and know what to drink when they get there. I would be surprised if there is a better cocktail on their menu. And even if you're not normally a whisky drinker give this a try.
The main reason why I started this account was to challenge myself to try out new things on a regular basis. To experiment and learn more about drink making, and it's been a great experience.
However, the downside of that is that sometimes you buy a bottle, or make an infusion for a certain drink, and then that bottle is just sitting there collecting dust. And that's a real shame. Sometimes you have to take a good look in your bar cabinet and see what you got in there.
One of those bottles I found way in the back is a tea-infused rum I made earlier this year. It's infused with a Swedish tea blend called Söderte which has notes of strawberry, elderflower, vanilla and rose petals.
Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I love making Negroni riffs. It's one of my favorite drinks and the simple recipe opens it up for endless variations. This rum has such a dominant flavor, that when it came to choosing the vermouth I thought that only Carpano Antica has the balls to stand up to it. The fruity, bittersweet Zucca Rabarbaro is my amaro of choice for this one. Needless to say, this is lovely stuff 👌🏻
South side Negroni: Söderte-infused Havana Club 3 años rum, Carpano Antica Formula vermouth, Zucca Rabarbaro and an orange twist.
Vodka or gin?
Whatever side you're on this election, we've got something for everyone down at Vinyl.
Come on in and commiserate or celebrate this evening, but whatever the case, we can help you do it in style.
A chilly, windy evening in #rapidcity#southdakota calls for an Old Fashioned! This beauty was made by @johnpalmerlarson (picture by me). I seem to make most of our cocktails lately, but John is the undisputed king of the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan - I don't even want to attempt them!
John follows a classic recipe from Esquire magazine: 1/2 t. sugar in an Old Fashioned glass, wet with 3 dashes Angostura bitters (made by me!) and a splash of club soda. Rotate the glass so the sugar/bitters/soda coat the glass - add 3 oz. whisky (J. used Crown) and ice. Pinch the orange twist over the glass to release its oils then drop into the glass. Then I run up to the lightbox while John lights the grill for our chicken wing dinner (we grill in all weather conditions in the Midwest)! That last step is not part of the recipe 😄
Have a great weekend everyone!
All good things must come to an end. This weekend, we say farewell to our leading lady, "Montana". After two and a half years behind the stick with us, she is hanging up her bar tools and grooving on. Cheers and best wishes to her.
