Choosing Bourbon for Your Kentucky Derby Mint Julep

post icon

With the Kentucky Derby coming up, thoughts are turning to the mint julep. This cocktail has been the signature drink of Churchill Downs since 1938, when they started serving the mint julep in souvenir glasses for 75 cents each.

If you don’t think the word “julep” sounds particularly Southern, you’re right. The cocktail, known as “julab,” originated in Arabia centuries ago. Eventually, it made its way to the US — with little changes along the … Read more

Absolut Wild Tea Review

I’m way past being fashionably late but I hear it’s better late than never. And I can’t NOT brag about the fabulous 14th Annual Beautiful People Party hosted by Absolut Wild Tea and Paper Magazine I was so lucky to score an invite to. I mean who could pass on a party performed Duran Duran and let me know they were “Hungry Like a Wolf” and that I was living in an “Ordinary World”?

Tres Agave Tequila Blanco Review

We recently attended a special event held by our friends at Nirvino where Tres Agave Tequila Ambassador Eric Ruben demonstrated the the fine art of the perfect margarita.  Eric keeps his Margaritas simple: 2 parts tequila, 1 part agave, and 1 part lime juice. Shaken and served on the rocks.

Tres Agave Tequila comes to us from the San Francisco Tequila Bar of the same name. The Company produces their own 100% agave tequila as … Read more

Whiskey and Cheese: Together at Last

post icon

If I made a list of my favorite things to ingest, cheese and whiskey would definitely be in the top five. So excuse me while I get all ooey-gooey about the whiskey & cheese session I went to at the Cheese School of San Francisco on Friday. The word “school” in the name might make you think of a classroom but it’s more like a big dinner party with 10 world-class cheeses, five diverse international … Read more

Shaker Faces

post icon

The way a bartender shakes will tell you a ton about the bartender and the quality of your cocktail. I’d say a bartenders shaker face can become their signature. There are some good, some bad. Combier, “the original triple sec,” figured they’d make a game out of it. What a better reason to travel the US visiting the country’s top mixologists. Each day a duo of mixologists compete for the best shaker face, and you … Read more
