Sour Tiki!

We all Tiki differently! So when Fede from @welcometomybar wanted to celebrate his 10k with an IG Tiki Party, well I had to partake! 🎉

This one has a sour profile, gently muddle sour jelly beans and make a syrup with the mix.

Calling it “Sugar High”
1 1/2 oz Oak and Cane Rum
1/2 oz Plantation O.F.T.D. Rum
1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur
1/2 oz  Mandarine Napoleon
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Sour Syrup
2 Dashes Tiki Bitters

Pulling the smoking gun

Having the right tools and gadgets will ensure the success of your shift. Just like a chef works better with the sharpest knife, bartenders can work better, faster and more efficiently with the best tools behind the bar — and that’s just good business. Impress your customers with brilliant presentation and flavor.

 I am a geek bartender, so when a new tool or gadget comes my way, I want to share it with everybody. To my surprise when I opened my October Robb Vices box and saw a @Breville smoking gun, you could have sworn I won the lottery! Truth be told, I have been looking for a new smoking gun for quite some time, and this one is high quality, I use it in my kitchen at home or behind the bar.

For this cocktail, I smoked 2 ounces of Monkey Shoulder Scotch with applewood
1/4 oz Fat toad farm goat’s milk caramel (also came in the box)
1/2 oz The bitter truth EXR
1/2 oz China China
2 Dashes of Apple Bitters

Garnish with a dehydrated Apple, and a Wondermade Bourbon Marshmallow.
This is fall flavor 101! 🍁🍂🍁🍂

Let’s escape the ordinary!!!

Life is for deep kisses, strange adventures, midnight swims & rambling conversations 🍾!!!

This cocktail I called “One More Adventure”
1 1/2 oz St Augustine Distillery Double Cask Bourbon
1/2 oz Montenegro Amaro 
1/8 oz Giffard Caribbean Pineapple
1/8 oz Velvet Falernum
2 dashes Dr. Reinhard Tropical Bitters

How blue are you?

I am not into blue curaçao myself, however I love me some blue cocktails.💙 Crazy dilema! Am I making my own??? Hell no, but I accomplish the cool color by reducing @jonessodaco berry lemonade and making a syrup out of it.

And it goes, 1 1/2 oz Rhum Clement premiére canne | 1/2 oz Suze | 1 oz lemon juice | 3/4 oz Jones soda berry reduction | 3 dashes Scrappys Bitters black lemon

🤔 Let’s call it The Odd Smurf!
