Dutch Negroni

This week’s drink is a twist on the classic Negroni. Rather than using a London Dry Gin, this Negroni uses Genever, from which Gin originated.

Ingredients:
1.5 oz Bols Genever
1 oz Campari
1 oz sweet vermouth

Directions:
Stir all ingredients with ice, strain into a pre-chilled rocks glass. Garnish with a large orange zest.

Berry Cobbler

post icon

We went to a very berry event last night hosted by Driscoll Berries. It was an interesting evening of cooking lessons and food photography all centered around blackberries. During the course of the evening, I sat next to one of the folks from Driscoll and learned a ton about berries. I had never really thought of it before but berries, like grapes, are “terroir” based and reflect the impact of their surroundings. It totally makes … Read more

Taming of the Shrew

A product of the new Las Vegas downtown cocktail scene, this drink is reminiscent of a lightly flavored martini, but served on the rocks. You can drink this at The Artifice (look for the flickering ‘R’) in the Las Vegas arts district, along with many more signature cocktails. This is a very smooth, balanced cocktail; lots of herbs and just enough sweet to keep everything together. The Taming of the Shrew is extremely good as … Read more

Lychee Gimlet

post icon

Until this drink, I’d never had a cocktail made with fresh lychees. Their bumpy shell houses a squishy, gelatinous fruit with a little seed inside that. It tastes like a sweeter more syrupy grape with an exotic fruit twist. Nolet’s Gin sent me a box of lychees and a suggestion for how to use them … a Gimlet made with lychees. How could I resist?

In case you’ve never seen a lychee before (I hadn’t), … Read more

Floradora Cocktail

post icon

Originating in the 1890s, the Floradora is a fresh cool highball cocktail that still stands tall in the 21st century. The refreshing combo of raspberries, gin, lime and a bite of ginger beer is just right on a summer’s eve. The trick with this drink is to pick a gin that is not overly junipery (yep that’s a word). We like Hendrick’s.

Ingredients:
3 parts gin
1 part fresh lime juice
Ginger beer
Fresh Raspberries… Read more
