Well as Summer is ending and the Fall season is nearing, this cocktail lends the transition to both. Japanese Sencha Greentea pairs very nicely with whiskey and has a very refined taste. The mint hits at the end with a nice lingering finish and the lemon just brings it all together.
If you’ve been Italy, you’ve most likely had an after dinner drink, the Sgroppino. The lemon and alcohol help to cut through anything you may have ingested through out the evening and help settle your tummy.

I think that yogurt in cocktails is a wonderful marriage. It goes together very well during the summer season and is one of my favorite combinations. The sweetness of aged rum and fresh pineapple gives this Cultured Spirit very interesting layers.
I usually don’t recycle our Drink of the Week, but we figured once every 4 years is acceptable for honoring the opening of the Olympic Games. What can I say, this cocktail, aptly named “The Olympic” wins a gold medal every time!

Tomorrow is Bastille Day! In honor of French Independence Day, this week’s drink is the Champagne Cocktail. The Champagne Cocktail combines two of France’s best contributions to the world of booze – Champagne and Cognac! While the recipe says that the Cognac is optional, it really isn’t. The drink is much better with Cognac, but seriously, what isn’t? So, raise a toast to the French – Viva La France!
With Independence Day around the corner we felt this appropriately named cocktail made with American Gin distilled in Philadelphia fit the bill. The American Beauty is refreshing blend of Bluecoat gin, fresh lemon juice, raspberries and mint accentuates the seasonal bounty while paying homage to stars and stripes.
Happy 4th of July!
I love Mezcal, its just simply my favorite spirit to work with, drink and enjoy. Its smoky and rich flavors just dance all over my palate. Once again I was looking for a vegetable to pair it with then I had an aha moment and decided to use celery which I pureed (to get it out faster during restaurant service).
Toast dear old Dad with this creation created by top DC mixologist JP Caceres for Basil Hayden’s Bourbon (and Dad of course.) Bourbon Daddy combines Basil Hayden’s spicy bourbon with the added kick of pink peppercorns, tart lemon juice and savory sage for a cocktail that will make any dad feel special this year.
Enjoy with Dad this Father’s Day, or if your the Dad, enjoy by yourself in quiet!
