In room bottled cocktails. All tied up and ready to go. Things are coming together for @thefrancismaine 
Barr Hill Tom Cat Aged Gin, is a nice little cross between genever, Gin, and bourbon. I put it together with Channing Daughters Vervino Vermouth and Cappelletti. More about that vermouth later, let's just say it's got all those late summer flavors and makes me want to skinny dip. Watermelon, mint, mushrooms.

We had quite an awesome pop up music collaboration at the distillery this past weekend. Can't wait to do more.

It was epic.

Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.

I use to make 'Fizzes' all the time and I kind of miss making them. I personally do not mind mixologizing this laborsome drink, but having them sparingly is the best treat.

Rum Fizz:
2 oz @privateerrum Silver
1.5 oz lemon and lime juice
3/4 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Salted Vanilla Pineapple Syrup
1 drop Almond Extract
Egg white
1 oz cream
Seltzer
Mint leaf for garnish

Add all ingredients, except Seltzer and mint to a shaker with one big ice cube. Shake hard for 15 seconds. I'm not a nut job that shakes for several minutes, you only need 15-30 seconds. Add an ounce of Seltzer to a chilled Collins glass and strain in your drink down the center from a couple inches high. Stop when the head hits the top of the glass and wait for merengue to settle. Pour slowly down the center and watch the head rise. Go slow and don't get too greedy. Garnish and throw a straw in and crush it.

Calendula, hardly knew her! 
Local green herb bitters, local red herb bitters. I worked on both herbs to create a gradient with a basic vodka soda. It's a refreshing trip into the mud, fields, and, sticks of a Maine summer.

A favorite afternoon sipper of mine: The Veronica CornNStone. This original cocktail features a grapefruit peel as a garnish, which is drastically underused in stirred drinks. It imparts bright flavor that compliments many liquors/liqueurs/Amari.
Veronica CornNStone:
2 oz Bourbon (corn)
3/4 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Ramazzotti Amaro
Barspoon gum syrup
1 dash cherry bitters (stone fruit)
1 dash apricot bitters (stone fruit)
Grapefruit peel

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir. Strain into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish. 
Amaro Meletti and Amaro Lucano also work nicely here. Gum syrup is for mouth feel. I highly suggest adding it or 2:1 simple syrup.

"in the cupboard sits my bottle

like a dwarf waiting to scratch out my prayers.

I drink and cough like some idiot at a symphony,

sunlight and maddened birds are everywhere,

the phone rings gamboling its sound

against the odds of the crooked sea;

I drink deeply and evenly now,

I drink to paradise

and death

and the lie of love." —Charles Bukowski, "Soirée"

I did a little home improvement this weekend. These were too pretty to be in a cabinet.

We were at our friend house for the forth and got to try this amazing whiskey! Spiced and sweet it was an absolute treat. Plus I knew something was up because it didn't taste like anything I had had before. Wine Barrels! Who knew. I highly recommend it. #slaughterhousewhiskey @orinswift

3-Day simple syrup...is that a thing? Probably not, but it was well worth it because it makes everything delicious. This Spiced Local Blueberry syrup simmered twice and sat and infused twice for 12+ hours. It started as the juice for my brandied blueberries.

Blueberry Daq
2 oz @privateerrum Silver
1 oz lime juice
1 oz 3-Day Blueberry Syrup

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a mint leaf. There's also a brandied blueberry in there but is optional. 
I can't even tell you what's exactly in the 3-Day Blueberry Syrup. It started out with blueberries, sugar (two types), lemon peel, Allspice, Privateer Silver, Vanilla Infused Cognac and then simmered. Then the leftover juice simmered again with cloves, cinnamon, and Benedictine. Then cooled again (with all stuff) for at least 12 to 24 hours. Strained and cooled. I may have missed an ingredient or two though...

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.

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!

I'm participating in #WeHaveTheLastWord global cocktail event run by @mmydrinks @wehavethelastword:

My first #LastWord variation pays tribute to a Boston bartending legend, @joshua_childs. This drink is not only delicious but the flavors together create a grapefruit-flavor that plays perfectly with the name "Shaddock". Captain Shaddock brought grapefruit citrus to the Caribbean. 
The Shaddock by Josh Childs
3/4 oz Bols Genever
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz Aperol 
3/4 oz St. Germain Elderflower
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Double strain into a chilled cocktail coupe. No garnish. If you don't have Bols Genever, a London Dry #Gin can be substituted.

More Last Word variations to come throughout April.

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. 
3/4 oz Privateer Gin
3/4 oz Luxardo Bitter Bianco
3/4 oz Velvet Falernum
3/4 oz lime juice
2 mint leaves (more for garnish)
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake hard. Double strain into chilled coupe. Garnish with a mint leaf. No need to muddle the mint as the hard shake will do it for you. Cheers.

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. .
