Cold Front is designed to help you cool off this summer. Orange, vanilla and cocoa combine for a treat that isn’t creamy or overly sweet. Included in this kit: Royal Rose Orange Vanilla Syrup (2 oz bottle), Ghirardelli cocoa powder, two 50ml bottles vodka and a candied orange garnish. This cocktail also calls for an optional egg white, which is not included.
You'll also receive. Piña Guayaba, which combines Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum, inspired by the island lifestyle of multi-platinum singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney, guava juice, lemon, coconut water, a tad of spice from ginger bitters and a pineapple crisp garnish. Included in your kit: two 50ml bottles coconut rum, guava juice, coconut water, two mini ginger bitters, and a packet of delicious pineapple crisps. Crystalized lemon is also included to use in place of fresh lemon juice in case you don't have fresh lemons handy.
This month’s cocktail, Nola Proper, includes an ingredient straight from New Orleans, Fassionola syrup. Once thought of as long-lost, Cocktail & Sons resurrected it with a version made of fresh Ponchatoula strawberries, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, hibiscus, and lime. Bourbon pairs perfectly with this Fassionola syrup and lemon curd adds a little tanginess and creaminess for a perfect balance.
Our second drink this month, Firefly, includes tequila, all natural honey ginger spice syrup from Hudson & Lee, and Scrappy’s Firewater Tincture. A little apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and citric acid make the syrup so tasty and well balanced, it would be delicious by itself. You can make this drink more or less spicy by adjusting the drops of firewater tincture according to your preference.
Our Black Lava Margarita features Tanteo Blanco Tequila, a ginger, lime and cinnamon infusion from Secco, agave, lime and a Hawaiian black lava salt rim.
Also included in this kit is The Kicking Mule, featuring HM the King Scotch, Pink House Alchemy’s Mexican Chile syrup made from the arbol chile, lemon and a splash of club soda to add a little effervescence.
Our Yuzu Collins features Sundog gin, Yuzu sparkling water from Kimino and Dusk syrup from Meadowland, which is made from organic black tea, lavender flowers and cane sugar. This recipe also includes a small amount of orange bitters, which adds a slight bitterness to complete a perfect flavor balance.
Our next drink, the Red TeaSmash includes bourbon, “African Sunset” tea (an organic rooibos tea from Two Leaves And A Bud), and Butternut Mountain maple syrup from Vermont.
We have two delicious recipes both including ingredients from the history books. The first, Sneaky Pete, is loosely based on a White Russian. Our version calls for rye whiskey, coffee liqueur, whole milk, Scrappy’s chocolate bitters and it is topped with Q Kola to create a delicious effervescence reminiscent of a root beer float. You can leave the milk out of this cocktail and it is equally delicious.
Our next cocktail, The Blueberry Mule, is light and summery with Horball’s Blueberry Lemon Shrubs and Q Ginger Beer. We’ve added a small amount of simple syrup for additional sweetness. We love the gem-like color of this cocktail and a citrus crisp garnish creates a beautiful contrast. Cheers!
