Harvest Moon

Harvest Moon

11/30/18 – We recently got our hands on some St George Spiced Pear Liqueur and it’s absolutely stunning. You get a hint of every flavor in it – ripe Barlett pear, cinnamon and clove. It makes the perfect fall cocktail, and although we are admittedly a little late to the Fall party, this libation can be enjoyed any time of year.

We added a bit of spice here with some habanero chili pepper-infused maple syrup: roughly chop the peppers and warm on the stove with maple syrup to infuse. (“Hot” tip- for those in the US, Trader Joe’s make a ghost pepper-infused maple syrup that works really well, but it’s on the spicier side, so mix with regular syrup as needed).
This drink will warm the soul through those cold Fall months!

Avila Old Fashioned

4/12/18 – Ah, the Old Fashioned. A true classic the likes of which has had its recipe evolve (and debated) over centuries.

The name says it all. It’s old. One of the very first cocktails in fact – invented in 1880 by aristocrat James E. Pepper. And whether you drink your classic Old Fashioned with Rye or Bourbon, fruit muddled or not (we don’t condone!); many dark (and sometimes light) spirit riffs have been inspired by this drink over the years.

We’ve put our own spin on it, and since Revel Avila Reposado is aged in American oak whiskey barrels, we figured we’d be doing this classic justice. In an effort of keeping with the most traditional way of serving the drink, we’ve kept it simple. A few subtle other flavors perfectly compliment the Avila but also let it shine.
