This is one tough challenge! Steve @boxesandbooze and Mike @mmydrinks have organised an Instagram event to bring back classic or forgotten cocktails, dust them off, give them a facelift and prepare them for this century: the #cocktailredux . Fantastic idea! Kudos to those two for making this happen. You rock!
Then I foolishy picked the Mudslide, a combination of Baileys Irish cream, Kahlua and vodka, as my drink of choice to bring back. Turns out the Mudslide is mentioned by name by cocktail legend David Wondrich as a great example of a “crappy drink”. Not suited to being updated and or turned into a “craft” cocktail. Whoops. 😧
Turns out maybe Mr Wondrich had a point. I made several failed attempts at updating the Mudslide. Here’s one that worked out better than the rest.
Simon’s Minty Mudslide
1 oz vodka
1 oz Baileys Chocolat Luxe
1 oz Kahlua
1 big scoop of mint and chocolate cookie ice cream
Blend and pour into a milkshake glass with a pretty chocolate sauce pattern
Add sprigs of fresh mint for garnish
Serve accompanied by Simon the Dinosaur. He loves mint.
This turned out to be a pretty good update to the classic Mudslide, although the vodka was still too present for my taste. I would probably use half the vodka next time, and maybe add some more of the chocolate Baileys. Still, Simon approves. #koktails#cocktails#simonsmintymudslide#mudslide#mint#baileys#kahlua#toughchallenge#crappydrink#simonapproves
Sometimes you just got to have fun, which is even better when that fun tastes great!

The Petra cocktail at @xiaobaobiscuit -- made with @bulleit Bourbon, @campariamerica, chili-infused honey syrup, ginger beer and @peychaudsaperitivo Bitters. Its spicy, sweet, bitter and most of all, refreshing. I think I'm in love 😍🥃 #tgif
I haven't posted in a while. Took a little break with the family and then did some real honest work. Speaking of honest work @homebartendr did some today that made my day. I was inspired to go home and make a Pegu Club. Delicious! I was going to go daiquiri but this was what I wanted. My lighting may not be as good but I'm pretty sure this drink is!
2 oz. London dry gin (Bombay Dry gin)
.75 oz. dry curaçao (@pierreferrandcognac)
.5 oz. lime juice
1 dash @angosturahouse bitters
1 dash @angosturahouse orange bitters
Shake and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
This is such a magnificent cocktail. Thank those Brits in Rangoon.
The folks a behind @sipsmith gin sent me a bottle of their London dry gin to try via #boozemail . It's a genuine London dry, distilled in London. It has clear but mild notes of juniper, with lots of citrus and floral notes backing it up, and a slight sweetness that reminds me of an Old Tom. Since my tastes lean towards American style gins, with their milder juniper notes, this one is right up my alley, a flavorful but mellow gin that shows off an array of botanicals along with the juniper. It's a pleasure to sip, with a nice body, not typical on a dry gin.
Here's the first drink made from this bottle, The Mead Hall:
2 oz Sipsmith London Dry gin
1 oz lime
1 oz pineapple honey syrup
1/2 oz Amontillado Sherry
1/2 oz velvet falernum
Sweet, tart, fruity, and a little spicy. Lots of rich dark honey notes; I was surprised how much they popped, and I think the honey lends this drink some extra body.
BITTER PINA /// Nothing like a nice patio and some icy drinks on a hot Chicago day. You'll find both at Saint Lou's Assembly, including this beauty, blended with tequila, Aveze bitter, pineapple, lime and sage. Also get the crispy black eyed peas. 👌
1.2 old Tom's ransom gin
1 Cana Brava .34 noir
.34 thatchers cucumber
.5 lime .25 coco lada owls brew
.5 latitude 29 falrenum
4 drops Fees old fashioned bitters
Alternate dance on this one split and mix with grapefruit soda or drink as mixed. It's good on its own but could be heavy for non lushes, a bit of grapefruit soda carries the flavor profile to a new place. #cocktails#craftcocktails#cocktail#craftcocktail#mixologist#mixology

#Vodka#Soda used to be my jam!! But since I'd *like* to think I'm a little bit more advanced now, I decided to mix things up with this #LAVENDER twist! This is sooo refreshing and if I had a pool, it would be my poolside drank. 🙌🏾 .......................... ....

A história desse coquetel, consiste basicamente em dois períodos históricos na Escócia, O passado:
Muito distante, os primeiros povos a habitar a Europa, os celtas, surgiram de uma fusão de agricultores locais, e eles deram início a era do ferro na Europa, a metalurgia.
A incerteza da diversidade desses povos, são resultantes de sucessivas etnias e culturas, vinda da península ibérica, região próxima ao oceano, mas precisamente da Espanha.
E Eles foram organizados o suficiente para para gerar uma civilização com heranças históricas até hoje.
Colin Scott, master distiller de Chivas Regal, ao criar Chivas Extra não criou um simples blended whisky, mas sim um whisky com personalidade, suas notas marcantes que nos dão uma complexidade incrível, isso me levou a selecionar ingredientes que juntos formam um drink extraordinário.

Repost: @spectrumstudio serving up some Spectrum Summer garnished with cucumber and our fresh hand-harvested #Elderflower at tonight's Bartender Bash to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Winter Haven. This Florida Native Elderflower was literally picked 6 minutes before delivery! It's a perfect cocktail to kick off summer ☀️👌🏼
Spirit and food pairing at its highest with a whole menu developed around Tanqueray (London Dry, 10 and Rangpur) and Jinzu gins. Big thank you to the @diageo Switzerland team for this wonderful experience.
Which cocktail would you like to try?
This ingredient list seems like a fancy cocktail-erole made with the leftovers of last nights bottles and syrups. Yay for leftovers and rum.

- Brown Derby - @sevengrandsd
Serveral different recipes for this with varying amounts of everything, this is my personal fave.
2oz - Bourbon
1.5oz - Grapefruit
.75oz - Honey simple.
Makea da shakey shake. Strain. Serve up, expressNgarnish G.fruit or Lem peel
I walked in and asked for a refreshing bourbon based cocktail, dealers choice and got this. Pretty spot on, the tart grapefruit and the smooth honey, really define the drink. While the bourbon adds the spice, and obviously the booze. While I would call this refreshing, its defiantly a cocktail thats requires time to appreciate. Not to toss back 10 minutes before dancing... lastly I'm not really for mixing citrus cocktail bases and garnishes because it can confuse the drinker or give preconceived notions. I was fine with the lemon peel because i knew the drink.
So looks like 7grand is going to be my goto pre swing dancing place. - History -
Brown derby was created in the early 1930s in Hollywood L.A. and named after the iconic Brown Derby resturant, while apparently it was served at Vendome Club also in Hollywood, not the Brown Derby itself.
Our first Secret Garden Dinner was an incredible success! Thank you to all of our supporters, including our evening's sponsor @sargentocheese and our guest chef Ulrich Koberstein.
