Have you sampled our famous cocktails at any of our locations? How about experimenting and making some of your own at home this summer?
To make fantastic, creative cocktails, a half-dozen base spirits and a few mixers will not only allow you to turn out a surprising number of cocktail classics but also give you enough to tinker with to come up with some cool drinks of your own.
Cognac: For sidecars, brandy milk punches, crustas, daisies, and smashes.
White Rum: For daiquiris and mojitos.
Gin: For martinis, gin and tonics, Tom Collinses, etc.
Bourbon: For Manhattans, old fashioneds, and whiskey sours.
Vodka: Vodka is the workhorse of the liquor cabinet, used in basic drinks such as vodka tonics, screwdrivers, and the vodka martini.
Tequila: For margaritas, sunrises, and palomas. The best tequilas are made from 100 percent agave; check the label.
Cointreau: A bar essential — clean, full of natural orange flavor, and not too sweet.
Red Vermouth: For Manhattans.
White Vermouth: Essential for truly sublime martinis.
Bitters: Bitters are used not to make the drink taste bitter but to help other flavors blend.
