VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!! Kicking off this weekend! Started my night at the Linq Hotel Bar.
In a pickle🥒over your Sunday brunch plans? A classic Bloody Mary with a modern Mediterranean twist to inspire you.
Bloody Mary: Cold-Pressed Horseradish, Harissa, Pickled🥕Carrot
? Don’t mind if I do!
is stopping by various culinary events and music festivals throughout the summer and mixing up all the perfect-for-summer drinks! They hooked me up with a couple tickets to Portland’s @polonoirpdx
event last weekend, so I grabbed my buddy @threefingerdrink
and headed out to @hiddencreekpoloclub
(check out my story highlights for more). Who knew that Portland was into polo?!
I don't know any of the rules to the sport but it was still a blast to watch. Plus there was plenty of tequila and refreshing cocktails to go around. My favorite was the Tiki Rita, which was actually created by my friend @drinkswmindy.
Tiki drinks and margaritas are already everyone’s Summer favorites, so might as well combine them!
2 oz @Patron
½ oz @Patron
½ oz fresh lime juice
½ oz fresh grapefruit juice
¼ oz Vanilla syrup
¼ oz Allspice dram
Combine ingredients in a shaker and shake with ice. Strain over crushed ice in a Hawaiian sea salt rimmed glass. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg and a lime wheel with cloves ✌🏼

My friend Inoka @cocktailco.au
recently was in the U.S.
It was a pleasure to finally meet her in person. I always love it when you meet someone and they turn out to be exactly as you imagined they would be.
Before she left LA, she said she needed to purchase some spirits to take home with her. She asked if we could stop off at a spirits store.
When we went into the store I asked her what she wanted to purchase and she said Havana Club. I told her we cannot get the Cuban Havana Club in the U.S.
She said she didn’t want the Cuban version since she can purchase that in Australia. She said she wanted the Puerto Rican version made by Bacardi. 🤔
She wanted this version so she could do a tasting event comparing the two brands.
She had her first tasting last month. It proved so successful she decided to have another recently.
I told her I would join in remotely. They first did a blind tasting of the rums.
Next they made a daiquiri with each of them.
I asked her what were the results from the tasting. Most preferred the Cuban version.
However, in the daiquiri they all said the Puerto Rican version was very drinkable and smooth. I totally concur with those results. The Cuban daiquiri was definitely more flavorful and packed a punch especially the 7 años. But like I told Inoka if I were to make a pitcher full of daiquiri so I could chug it, i definitely would choose the Puerto Rican Blanco version.
Until the next tasting!!
Having graced our menu since opening three years ago, the Lonesome Dove is a refreshing, floral take on the classic Paloma, and one of @CaerMaiko
's favorite cocktails. Featuring Arette Blanco tequila, Lime, Grapefruit, Cinnamon syrup, Vanilla extract, Himalyan Salt tincture, and a spritz of Rose Water for its seductive aroma. Stop in tonight to try one, and take a second to appreciate the good things in life... or should we say smell the roses? Cheers to you!

I realized I haven't made a drink with whiskey or Fernet Branca in a minute, probably because I tend to think of them as more wintry than the other things I've been making. So today, a win-win...
Winter by Way of Summer
1oz Fernet Branca
3/4 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz orgeat
1 barspoon fresh pressed ginger juice
5 muddled blackberries
Mint, ginger, blackberries to garnish
Gateway cocktail for whiskey drinkers. Too much has been said about the origin and the right way to make the drink. Here’s how I make my old fashioneds. If you muddle oranges and cherries in your old fashioneds though, you should feel bad. .
2oz Bourbon or Rye
1 Barspoon simple syrup
2 Dashes Angostura bitters
Orange peel for zest and garnish
Add sugar, bourbon (or rye), and angostura bitters. Stir with ice for up to a minute. Pour over a large chunk of ice. Twist an orange peel over the drink to express the oils. Garnish with the same peel. Cheers!
No right or wrong Bourbon or Rye for this drink - use whichever you like.
There’s no value in using an actual sugar cube like the good ol’ days - to do it right, you essentially have to make simple syrup out of it in the glass anyway. Skip that noise, just use simple syrup. You can also try Demerara syrup, agave syrup, honey, or maple syrup. All work really well, and some pair better with certain whiskies.
You can bump up the Angostura, and a lot of bars will do 4-6 dashes these days. Depends on how much you want to modify the taste of the whisky you’re using.
Come brunch with us tomorrow from 10-2! We will be serving these two delicious, but different #bloodymarys
. Our Brine and Swine Bloody has bacon vodka, pickle brine, and our house mix. Our Yellow Mary uses a the delicious Blonde Bloody Mix from #charleston
, tequila, and mezcal. Come try one, or maybe both, with a local corned beef hash bowl... Sounds like a plan to us! 📷 by: @chelsealane__
Our phenomenal bourbon-barrel-aged rum legs are as sexy as they look.
