My Graceland bar is @barcheftoronto. Their cocktail book and bar manager, @frankiesolarik, are amazing. This incredibly approachable, industry inspired, whiskey drink is called the Dublin.
Dublin by Frankie Solarik
1.5 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey (I used Teeling)
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz sweet vermouth (I used Punt e Mes)
1 oz Vanilla syrup (I used 3/4 oz)
2 thumb sized orange rind
Cinnamon, grated for garnish

In a mixing glass, add all ingredients and muddle the orange rinds. Add ice and stir. Strain into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with freshly grated cinnamon.

Tomorrow, their smoked hickory and Vanilla Manhattan...

How about a vodka drink? This one you will love, I promise. One of my #Summer staples - The Palmyra from @no9Park in #Boston. Created in 1998, this is perhaps the best classic cocktail from Boston. 
The Palmyra by Tom Mastricola
2 oz vodka (Aylesbury Duck Vodka)
3/4 oz lime juice
3/4 oz mint simple syrup (muddle mint if you don't have mint syrup)
Like wedge and mint sprig for garnish
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake hard. Double strain into a chilled cocktail coupe. Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge - use a mint sprig with double leafs and tuck under lime wedge like wings. - via Liza Weisstuch

I'm not a big day drinker these days except when it's a low abv drink, like a Pimm's Cup. We finally had a nice Spring day in Maine so afternoon deck cocktails seemed appropriate.
Pimm's Cup via @punch_drink 
2 oz Pimm's #1
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Cucumber slice
Mint sprig 
Soda water
Add Pimm's, lemon juice, simple and bitters to a Collins glass and stir. Add fresh ice and top with soda water and garnish with cucumber and mint. I sometimes add a 1/2 oz of Beefeater Gin and cut the Pimm's down to 1.5 oz. 7up or Ginger ale can be subbed for soda water.

Muddle syrup and mint, add bourbon and give a quick stir. Add crushed ice about 3/4 of glass and stir again until glass is frosted. Top with more crushed ice and mint sprig.

We did well today. Our friends @privateerrum had a special release at their distillery today. If you haven't tasted their stuff, I highly recommend. Check out their distillery for a tour too. We grabbed some other local rums while we were at it. #madenotbought #distillersdrawer #savethebees #gingonetiki

Our bourbon speaks for itself and holds strong on its own. Our Small Barrel Bourbon picks up a beautiful roundness with hints of vanilla and cinnamon, and a cocoa finish on your exhale. Come by the distillery to enjoy our bourbon neat or enjoy it in a handcrafted cocktail.⠀

Classic Aperol Spritz. Get your self through this rainy spring and think of future patio days. My favorite because the recipe is on the back of the bottle. 3.2.1 and you're done! 
Plus the commercials front the 80s are worth a Google. 
Cheers!

It's almost May and we have the fireplace on... A chilly, wet night in #Maine calls for Bourbon. I love #cocktail riffs and this is a great one. The @anvilhouston Banana Boulevardier by Terry Williams:
1 oz Bourbon 
1 oz sweet vermouth
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Giffard Banana
Orange peel for garnish

Add all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled rocks glass with a big ice cube and garnish. Dream of warmer weather.

For my 3rd #LastWord variation, I wanted to try 2 things: use gin as my base spirit and make the drink green without the use of Green Chartreuse. I recently picked up two bottles of Luxardo Bitter Bianco and wanted to mix with it. For my gin, I wanted complimentary botanicals while playing with the #Tiki theme. @privateerrum's Tiki Finished Gin was the obvious choice. For the green color, I used mint. This drink combo works really well and will become a regular #summersipper.

My second #LastWord variation is close to the original. I subbed out Luxardo Maraschino for Vanilla Giffard. If you can't tell, I love vanilla but with this version you can taste all the great flavors of the gin, the Chartreuse and citrus with hints of vanilla. I like Maraschino but sometimes find it overpowering. 
3/4 oz Gin
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz lime juice
3/4 oz Vanilla Giffard

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with lime wheel. Or don't. Your call.

When life gives you lemons and limes, shake a Ramos Gin Fizz. I like to add vanilla to my Ramos, either a dash of extract or a 1/4 oz Vanilla Giffard. A nice way to start a Sunday.

I'm experimenting with Fizz variations tonight. I made several versions then wanted to see if I could layer two Fizzes, so this bottom portion is one separate Fizz with Old Tom Gin, lime, cinnamon, egg white and cream. The top Fizz has vanilla-infused Cognac, lemon, maple syrup, egg white and cream. The flavors stayed individual for a couple of sips, but eventually they merged and made a nice drink. I wanted to use ingredients that worked together for this reason. The layering effect didn't work, but it is a tasty beverage nonetheless and a concept I may revisit later on. Now to drink this 14oz Fizz.

My favorite cocktails are brown, bitter and stirred. I've always thought there should be more stirred rum drinks. One of my favorites is the Chadburn by Martin Cate. This drink is a riff on it.

Unnamed Chadburn Riff:
2 oz aged rum
1/2 oz Amontillado Sherry
1/2 oz Amaretto
3 dashes Bittermens Mole Bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
No garnish

Stir ingredients and serve in chilled glass. I think this drink would be best served down with a big rock.

My favorite cocktail book is @DeathandCoNYC. The drinks are amazing and the layout is the easiest to find what you are looking for. This cocktail is from the Agave Stirred section on page 195 called Te Amo.

Te Amo by Brad Farran 2012
2 oz Anejo Tequila
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
2 tsp white creme de cacao
1 tsp Cynar
1 dash orange bitters
1 dash @Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters
1 dash @Bittermens Habanero Shrub
Orange twist garnish

Add ingredients with ice to mixing glass. Stir and strain into chilled coupe. Garnish.

I typically make adult milkshakes with our Waring Drink Mixer so I want to expand and make more Tiki/shaken drinks with it. Thankfully, @SmugglersCoveSF has a ton in their cocktail book. 
BUMBOAT by Justin Oliver
2 oz pineapple juice
1.5 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz cinnamon syrup
1 oz Rye
1 oz light aged rum
3 drops almond extract
6 drops @Bittermens Tiki Bitters
3/4 oz black overproof rum (added later)

This is a 'Flash Blend' drink, so if you have a mixer, use it with crushed ice. The texture is amazing. But you can also shake with ice and top with overproof rum and garnish.

Earlier this week I had a cold and while laid up on the couch I watched Big Trouble in Little China. Classic. My friend and great bartender, @scottiepeps, created a drink called the Egg Shen awhile back. I've been craving it ever since.

Egg Shen by Scott Shoer:
2 oz Spiced Rum
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
1/4 oz Allspice Dram
Egg white
Grated Nutmeg for garnish.

Add all ingredients into shaker without ice and dry shake. Add ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into coupe and garnish with grated nutmeg. 
Can't wait to sip this on warmer days. 
When in the #Boston area, go visit Scott and crew @sycamore755. Awesome food, creative drinks, incredible hospitality. Cheers.

Red wagons are the most chic presentation for a beverage station. All I need is a little dog to pull it around for me. Preferably a pug dressed as a conductor. 
A little pomegranate seed goes a long way to dress up a glass of bubbles. .

Set up last night was so fun! With the theme of 400 Rabbits to work with all of my woodsy dishes got to come out of the cabinet. A little shot of tomato juice at each setting, just to clear the palette, but I liked it for the color pop.

Thank you SOL Studio. This table is wonderful to gather around.

Grapefruit cordial. I've been making a few cordials this summer. They brighten a drink, while adding the desired flavor. Basically they are just really delicious stabilized alcoholic  juice. Who wouldn't be a fan? 🍊

I start with three grapefruit. I take the peels, cover with sugar until the sugar dissolves the oil in the peel. Add a little hot water to that so it really melts the sugar. Then juice the remaining grapefruit. Add brandy to the peel minute and leave covered for a day. Then mix everything all together again in a fun bottle. Whamo, I got a grapefruit cordial!

Grapefruit cordial. I've been making a few cordials this summer. They brighten a drink, while adding the desired flavor. Basically they are just really delicious stabilized alcoholic juice. Who wouldn't be a fan? 🍊 I start with three grapefruit. I take the peels, cover with sugar until the sugar dissolves the oil in the peel. Add a little hot water to that so it really melts the sugar. Then juice the remaining grapefruit. Add brandy to the peel minute and leave covered for a day. Then mix everything all together again in a fun bottle. Whamo, I got a grapefruit cordial! #cocktailgarnish  #cocktail  #cucumber  #summercocktails  #imbibe  #craftcocktails  #craftcocktailportlandme  #drinklocal  #portlandme  #portlandmaine  #craftcocktail  #craftcocktails  #craftcocktailportlandme  #cocktailtime  #cocktailoftheday  #mainecocktails  #mainemade  #jameson  #cocktailoftheday  #drinkdrankdrunk  #cocktailillustration  #cocktailsillustrated  #drinkcards  #creativecocktails  #charlesbukowski  #bukowski  #watermeloncocktail  #watermelon  # #scotch  #lunchcocktails  #beverageprogram  #brunchcocktails

“Alcohol is probably one of the greatest things to arrive upon the earth — alongside of me.” ~ Charles Bukowski, “Tough Guys Write Poetry” Interview 🍾🍾🍾🍾
Created last week by the beautiful @jules_atkins 
I think she muddled kiwi, mint, and, basil. 
It looks so refreshing. 
Enjoy the weekend #cheers
