This winter dessert drink is having me want to grab some skies & hit the slopes. Well, the bunny slopes for me 😅⛷It features French Genepy des Alpes, an alpine liqueur that is reminiscent of it's herbal cousins chartreuse & absinthe. I mixed it with creme de cacao & coffee liqueur & topped it with cream, for a decadent drink you'll want to cozy up with post slopes. It can be seen as a minty White Russian or a coffeey Grasshoper, but like David S. Pumpkins, it's its own thing!
The Fine Alpine
•1.25 oz cream
•1 oz Dolin genepy des alpes
•1 oz creme de cacao (I used Tempus Fugit)
•1 oz coffee liqueur (I used @stGeorgeSpirits
Shake all ingredients in a shaker and strain into a glass with ice. Garnish with pine sprig.

Beautiful libation at the ever-fabulous Mandarin Hide in downtown St. Pete. Love everything about this place-the space, the top notch cocktail program, the bartenders, all of it. @themandarinhide
Featuring Ocho Tequila ..
We met the Ocho Tequila at La Tequila bar and resturant in Guadalajara, our Mexico trip in June,2017 via Margarita and in love with it’s smokiness. We found a bottle here at Astro wine, NYC recently and it tastes different.. somehow very smooth and not that smoky. I was a so confused but later on I found the answer...each batch made from different agave estate(Rancho) which contributing distinctive characteristics of that place.
It is the first tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the precise field from which the family grown agaves were sourced. It demonstrates that “terroir” exists in agave.
‘Terroir’ is the French term used to describe the natural elements (influences) that have an effect on agriculture. These elements include soil composition, altitude, temperatures day and night throughout the year, rain fall, humidity and exposition to the sun and winds.
It is becoming increasingly understood and agreed upon that the concept of ‘terroir’ also exists within the growing of agave and the resulting tequila made from it. In Jalisco, the largest tequila producing state of Mexico there are two main regions for agave growing and tequila production – ‘Tequila Valley’ and ‘Los Altos’. It is said that the tequilas made in Tequila Valley are masculine, forward in flavour, with an earthy, peppery and herbal taste profile. in comparison, tequilas made from agaves grown in Los Altos are feminine, softer, rounder, more fruity and floral.
2 oz Tequila Blanco or reposado from Los Altos @tequilaochousa
1 oz watermelon juice
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz yuzu juice
2 pumps Agave syrup
Shake all together
Strain to coupe glass
Garnish with lemon wheels

Tipsy tea brunch is a GO! 📸 @nycfoodsnob
Brunch is the jam! Do you have a go-to brunch drink? This is one of my favorite cocktails right here the Breakfast Bramble with gin, jam citrus & a secret ingredient: Greek yogurt. It's a bright & tart cocktail with a subtle creaminess that works perfectly alongside flapjacks, toast, or a full breakfast. You can use any jam, but @thejamlab
's apricot rosemary is the sh*t 🍊🌿Recipe in the archives.
Doesn't this make you thirsty? It's the Bourbon Basil Twist at Mesh on Mass in Indy. Made with Woodford Reserve, fresh basil, simple syrup, and fresh lemon juice. Perfect brunch cocktail. So good! @meshonmass @woodfordreserve
It's the freakin' weekend, what are you filling your glasses with?! I am feeling like something moody, boozy & stirred 🥃🥃🥃

! Warming whisky and a hit of spice this tasty number will get rid of that pesky cold. Try this riff on the classic, a Pear, Honey and Whisky warmer by the brilliant @beautifulbooze.
I am really into just opening up a bottle of wine since the holidays, anyone else?! I have hardly picked up a shaker in the past few weeks 😱 I know crazy. But with one extra step past opening a bottle (throwing fruit, spices & wine into a crockpot) you can have a delicious warm punch ready to go. I have put the leftover mulled wine in a covered pitcher in the fridge & just reheated in mugs for a couple days after as needed, easy peasy lemon squeezey! Currently undergoing a small apartment redo & prop organization while recovering from two knee injuries so seeking all the simplicity & wine I can get! 🙈🍷🍷🍷Recipe for the Cranberry Pomegranate Mulled Wine on my site.
Guys!! I joined the gin today!! How are your New Year resolutions going....? 😂⠀

sent me a bottle of their añejo tequila, the art deco lines of the packaging got me thinking about Pre-Prohibition bartending, the era that gave us legendary cocktails like the Manhattan, the Martini, and the Sazerac. Sadly, tequila wasn't widely used in this period, so I decided to right this wrong by creating a refined tequila cocktail in true Pre-Prohibition style.
My first decision was to avoid citrus. A Margarita is a wonderful thing, but I wanted to approach tequila from a different angle. The nuances in a great añejo are obliterated by the sharp sword of lime and it was important to me to show that tequila is more versatile than the Sour.
I started with an Oloroso sherry to accentuate the dried fruit and nut qualities of the aged tequila. These two marry together beautifully; it's hard to tell where one begins and the other ends.
Oloroso is a relatively dry sherry so there's room for a touch of sweetness. To this end I used Maraschino liqueur, a favorite trick for early 20th century bartenders. A good Maraschino isn't overly sweet and it contributes a lot of aromatics due to the fact that the namesake cherries are distilled with their pits. This reinforces the almond and stonefruit aromas of the sherry, adding more depth and richness.
I finished with another common technique from the Golden Era, an absinthe rinse. Because this recipe is so close to the Manhattan (aged base spirit, sweetened fortified wine) I knew a bittering element would work well, and the wormwood in the absinthe does that wonderfully while the notes of anise and fennel softly whisper of a time gone by. All in all this is a deliciously sophisticated cocktail that puts tequila on the top shelf of the bar where it belongs. Cheers! #bartendersblueprint #lettersandliquor #grancentenario
