P&P /// Always love finding new ways to use Pimm's.
- 1 oz pisco
- 1 oz Pimm's No. 1
- ¼ oz maraschino
- ¼ oz lime juice
- ¼ oz lemon juice
- ¼ oz rich simple syrup (2:1)
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- ginger beer
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a Collins glass filled with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer to taste and garnish with mint sprig, lemon and cucumber (didn't have so added a lime wheel). Found on @imbibe.
I've got two things I always keep in mind when it comes to my approach behind the bar. The first and most important is that the only thing that truly matters, is what's in the cup. I have a very minimal approach to visible garnishes, but I love adding invisible garnishes. Rubbing the exterior in herbs or leafs, using sprays on the bottom of coupes/glasses etc. It's a beautiful thing when a glass can hit so many senses but have nothing but the cocktail inside. The unexpected invisible garnish is my favorite. @deathandconyc and @canonseattle are two places and both have books, that truly hammer this concept home for me. I adjusted the way I make my Old Fashioneds, Negronis and Boulevardiers after reading the Canon book and am grateful to places like these for sharing the knowledge they have gained over the years of perfecting their craft. I am a better bartender due to all the bartenders who have helped steer me in the right direction over the years. I thank you all for this!
Can't decide if you want beer or cocktails on a hot summer day? No problem - at @circabrewingco, you don't have to choose. We loved their beer cocktails! Find out why you need to hit up Brooklyn's newest brewery as soon as possible by visiting itsfivehere.com! 😍🍺🍻
#BarFaithBottleTalk : Real McCoy 12. This is one of my favorite bottles of rum and is fairly priced for a higher end rum at around $40. If you're ready to explore the world of true high quality #rums that are unadulterated without additives or sugar and absolutely divine to enjoy neat, this is the one to get. No joke. As much as I love Jamaican funk-bombs, delectable though sweetened rums like Plantation or El Dorado, and 'limited release' or hard-to-find bottles, you really can't beat this classic. @therealmccoyrum 12 is a #Barbados rum blended and bottled at @foursquare_rum_distillery, aged for 12 years in ex-bourbon casks (generally the standard cask type used for aging rums), and a classic representation of a superior Bajan (aka "Barbadian") rum.
Barbados has the longest running history of rum distilling in the world (Mount Gay is the oldest distillery still in existence), and #Bajan rum is definitely some of the finest out there. While #rum is one of the least internationally regulated spirits (and hence one of the most varied), there are comparatively strict rum production regulations in Barbados that disallow additives such as sugar and actually require that the age statement on a bottle be representative of the YOUNGEST rum in a blend. Hence, with this, you really get a pure representation of what a 12-year aged rum should taste like. And it is mind blowingly spectacular. What are you waiting for? 😉
Timelapse of making clear ice. I like to keep the ice I cut more handmade looking so I don't do perfect spheres and cubes. I love making iceberg shapes that reach out of the glass, but for an Old Fashioned I stick with the a near-cube shape.
The Italian Buck
1 1/2oz Amaro Montenegro
1 1/2oz Don Ciccio e Figli Carciofo (original calls for Cynar)
3/4 Fresh lime juice
3oz Ginger Beer
Combine all ingredients in shaker filled w/ ice and shake. Strain/ garnish w/ lime wheel.
Working the schedule that I usually do, I don't get to go to farmer's markets as much as I would like. I'm so grateful for this time off and to be able to get out to one and get some great local produce and goods to whip up some hopefully delicious cocktails. These farmers work so hard to give us the best products imaginable and they deserve your support, so go to a market this weekend! #EatLocal#DrinkLocal#ncfarmers#farmersmarket
@deadrabbitnyc at Claridge's. Pictured are the Pirate Queen (Havana 7 yr, genever, strawberry, honey, cinnamon, ginger, lemon and creole bitters) and the Cut & Dry (Plantation 3 star, curacao, passion berry, sumac, lime and habanero bitters). Quite something to see Claridge's turned into the best Irish cocktail bar. Sláinte! #craftcocktails#liqpic#imbibegram#deadrabbitnyc
Thank you @readoctober magazine and @grayhchapman for including my Nopalito Punch in their recent article about beer cocktails.
Check out the link in my bio for the full article, plus recipes! Thanks again @nopalitofarm for having me last year, can we get the band back together soon? @tinynightmare
Continuing my Switzerland drinks with views series: a wasabi gin martini on the terrace at the Bellevue Palace in Bern.
The drink is quite tasty. The scene is otherworldly, looking at the Alps in the distance and down at the Aare below.
We'll be serving our Thai Tea Milk Stout and Brett and Lacto House Culture Grisette! A light, sessionable ABV perfect for this breezy weather! Back at the taproom today, our lineup is shaking up with the Idaho 7 Pale Ale and our new, absolutely delicious Game Winner Citra and Amarillo IPA is on tap. It has a slight haze, with notes of grapefruit and Peaches.
Dave McKenney is playing at the brewery from 4:30-7:30.
Perfect for a Saturday evening drink here in the dam... The 'Kaffirinha' 🍃🍃🍃
A fragrant riff on the classic Caip. w/ Cachaca//Lime//Sugar & Kaffir Lime Leaf. 🍃
It's never about just the taste of the wine or the food. It's never about just the certification or the calorie content. Sometimes, what truly counts is the long-term goal. What feeds your body, mind, and soul? What's the micronutrient, and what makes you feel joyful and weightless? Don't let one indulgence rob you of all the excellence awaiting you. #eatclean

"Take Flight" on this fine Saturday. One of our go-to, Thursday's from 2-4pm we are serving up some of our latest concoctions at the Tasting Room. Stop on by to see what we whip up this week.
The Chingon is a tequila cocktail from @deathandconyc. It features a reposado tequila base, with layers of citrus (orange and lime) and sweet (orgeat and Bénédictine). The cocktail is a smooth, sweet drink and having one too many might result in another one of those bad tequila experiences.⠀
What you need⠀
2 oz. reposado tequila⠀
0.25 oz. Bénédictine⠀
0.5 oz. orange juice⠀
0.5 oz. lime juice⠀
0.5 oz. orgeat⠀
How it’s made⠀
Add all the ingredients but the orange peel to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, then double-strain into a coupe. Garnish with the orange peel.⠀
IT'S THE WEEKEND! Come take seat at the bar, enjoy "the Liftoff", and takeoff with our NEW growler!
[We are 5 days new, still in our soft opening period, but we're open until 10pm today!] #renewyourbrew
Happy Saturday everyone! Hope your weekend has been off to a great start! #sponsored
We made this Rum Old Fashioned (man, we have been on a rum kick!) to show off this beautiful glass from @rolfglass!
This is the Bleeker Street rocks glass, isn't it gorgeous?!
What would you drink out of it?
Lady Ottoline Morrell: Haymans Old Tom, Haymans Slow Gin & orange bitters (£10). In hindsight, I should have had this before the Old Fashioned. The order of what you drink can matter as much as what you order. Solid cocktail though.
