Champagne cocktails are a fun way to celebrate … or just feel like you’re celebrating. The Shrinking Violet gets its delicate flavor and lovely color from crème de violette, a brandy-based liqueur made with violets. The liqueur gives a delicate sweetness and floral aroma to the cocktail, complementing the champagne rather than covering it up. Add a pansy, violet or viola for garnish!
The name Red Rooster is a play on words referencing the savoriness of the cocktail, since the recipe idea came from the Mexican chunky-style salsa pico de gallo, which means rooster’s beak. This cocktail was created for and built around the flavor profile of Fortaleza Tequila, whose blanco is incredibly herbaceous and vegetal. The rooster is also a big part of the Sauza family’s history and family crest. Guillermo Sauza is the sole owner … Read more
With Mexican Independence Day coming up, reader Kanhaiya thought this cocktail would be appropriate to share. Tequila, Dark Rum combined with pineapple, orange and lime juice and a touch of nutmeg are combined for a tasty treat to toast the day.

Beat the heat with this summer chiller created by mixologist, Kim Haasarud, of Liquid Architecture. Elderflower liqueur is combined with lemon sorbet and Champagne for a bubbly, sweet treat with a bit of lemony pucker. Now, which way to the pool?

This week’s drink is a classic tropical cocktail that I first had in Hawaii many years ago. An island favorite for sitting in the sun, the lava flow is a combination of fresh strawberry purée, coconut, pineapple juice and rum (for flavor). You can make the strawberry purée ahead of time and use left overs on pancakes or ice cream.
2010 marks the 150th anniversary of the Gaspare Campari’s creation of the bright red aperitif we all know and love today. To celebrate, Campari asked some of the world’s great mixologists to do there thing and create some amazing cocktails (using Campari, of course).
The Argonaut was created by San Francisco’s own cocktail geek, Marco Dionysos. Marco used pisco, an SF staple, and Campari as the base of this tall refreshing cocktail, the drink is … Read more
At this past week’s Tales of the Cocktail, Kahlúa Coffee Liqueur hosted the daily coffee bar, complete with baristas and bartenders. This year, Kahlúa held a contest in the Mixolosuem to find their featured “brunch” cocktail. After rigorous testing at a NYC bar, Kaiser Penguin, Rick Stutz’s creation, the Black Paloma, was chosen the winner. A fresh, crisp combination of tequila, Kahlúa, lime juice, and grapefruit juice, this one sure opened my eyes after arriving … Read more
