The 101 on Garnishes

The 101 on Garnishes

Besides adding a decorative touch to your drink, garnishes should also provide integral, complementary flavors and aromas. A strategically placed citrus peel on a side of a drink that a guest can rub and squeeze will release just a touch of aroma to stimulate the senses.

Infused Spirits

Infusing spirits with flavor is a great way to experiment with your own personal tastes. The basic concept is to marry a variety of choice flavors into a base liquor to create a custom-flavored spirit.

How Sweet It Is

How Sweet It Is

Sweetness is a key component to any good drink, helping balance acid, bitterness and even alcohol.

Flavored Syrups

Flavored Syrups

Cocktails made with infused spirits or syrups add a complexity and depth that you can taste: an extra hint of cinnamon, a floral undertone, a prick of heat, a fresh hint of mint. Best of all, these infusions are simple to create. They just take a little time and some forethought. Here’s one to try: (more…)... read more
Drinks with Benefits

Drinks with Benefits

A super food is a nutrient rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and wellbeing. Although, advertisers have been throwing around the word quite loosely these days, the concept behind the term remains quite real. A super food is a food occurring naturally in nature that contains a high ratio of micronutrients to calories. These culinary super heroes are my cocktail superstars and they deserve a spotlight!
