This past week marked the 10th installment of New Orleans mixology orgy, Tales of the Cocktail. It is by far the largest celebration of cocktail culture in the country. Tales (as it called by 'vets') is a who's who of bartenders, journalists and brands. It is a wonderland for up and coming barterers and enthusiasts.
Friday night kicked off the soiree with the Opening Gala, an event that takes over the entire New York Public Library and is attended by thousands of people. Literally, at the Gala, hundreds of classic and innovative cocktails are served.

This scotch is the perfect spirit for beginning scotch drinkers. It expresses the essence of scotch with its soft nose and palate expressions of dried fruit and kernal flavors, such as toffee, with none of the intensity or smokey peat that may turn off beginning drinkers. This soft and approachable qualities also make it a great scotch to use in cocktails. The Glen Grant 10 Yr. Single Malt Whiskey also clocks at an entry level price at just under $40.
We made it! Spring is here. So, what does spring mean for us? Vibrant fresh cocktails, that's what!
