No 4th of July barbecue is complete without watermelon. I’d like to amend that statement to include watermelon cocktails!
This refreshing summer cocktail is the perfect accompaniment to whatever you’ll be throwing on the grill this Independence Day. Martha Stewart inspired this recipe, which I adapted from her watermelon and basil margaritas.
The watermelon is cool and refreshing, while the mint and basil balance the sweetness and give it a fresh, crisp herbal note. You … Read more
Beefeater 24 gin inspired me to concoct this simple cocktail that plays with the tea and citrus notes of the liquor.
I think it accentuates the spirit’s flavor and is a good match for its smooth and rich nuanced character.
Using frozen fruit and berries as ice cubes is a new thing I’ve been doing lately.
Not only is it pretty, but it cuts down on the water that will be added to your drink … Read more
The first thing that grabs your attention about Corzo tequila is the bottle: square, smooth, and modern—not unlike a really nice cologne bottle.
But when you get past the attractive packaging, there’s a friendly tequila inside waiting to play.
It has a thin mouthfeel and an approachable taste. Though it is 100% agave, it lacks the grassy flavor often found in such tequilas.
This is a clean-tasting tequila for sipping or mixing. I found that … Read more

Tried the Three Rivers Cocktail on a recent trip to NYC, although it hails from Canada. We recommend using Canadian Whiskey, but you can fake if their is none on hand. The addition of the other two “rivers” Dubonnet, a wine based aperitif flavored with herbs, and Triple Sec.

Beefeater 24 is the London gin company’s fresh take on premium gin—and I like it.
It’s a smooth gin that is slightly sweeter and richer than its dry gin counterpart.
Beefeater 24 gets its name from the 24 hours it steeps in botanicals including Spanish grapefruit and Seville orange peel, bitter almond, orris root, green tea and Japanese Sencha tea.
The tea and citrus influence is very subtle but pleasing.
It’s not a flavored gin, … Read more
