For this week’s liquor spotlight, we are going old school. And by “old school” we mean the Netherlands in the 1600s, where a liquor called Genever, which would eventually evolve into gin, was first made. Pretty old school, right?
So, in yesterday’s Throwback Thursday Classic Cocktail post, we promised you that we would be going in-depth on a specific liqueur in today’s liquor spotlight, and if we are one thing (we are many things), we are people who occasionally live up to promises that we make to others…
And so, here we are. Now come inside and let us tell you about the delicious wonderment that is Averna! Continue reading →
For this weel’s Throwback Thursday Classic Cocktail we are diving deep to bring you a recipe for one of the most beloved cocktails of all : The Manhattan.
Now, although Manhattan recipes are a dime a dozen on the interwebs, we (and by “we” we mean KellyAtTheBar and GaryAtTheBar) have spent hours toiling away with different recipes, tweaking ingredients, and painstakingly taste testing, to make sure we bring you The Best of The Best. It’s a tough gig, but someone has to do it…
So, without further ado, we give you, The Manhattan Recipe To End All Manhattan Recipes!
For this week’s Tools & Tricks we wanted to get down and dirty with an issue that is coming up more and more these days: Gluten. So exciting, right?
Well, exciting or not, as more and more people are going gluten-free it has led to a lot of questions about alcohol, gluten, and what is and is not safe to drink if you are leading a gluten-less lifestyle. There is a lot of misinformation out there, so we are here to stop the madness and get down to the truthiest of the truth.
Our other idea for the name of this cocktail was “Alcoholic Lemonade That Does Not Taste Like A Disgusting Sugary Mess Drunk Only By 19 Year Old College Students,” but we decided to go with Kelly’s Hard Lemonade for the sake of brevity.
That’s right everyone, for the eighth installment of Monday Funday Original Cocktails, we have created a delicious, light, thirst-quenching lemonade, that just-so-happens to be chock-full of booze.
