The Old Fashioned is a simple and uncomplicated cocktail. This recipe really allows the primary spirit (in this case, bourbon) to shine. And the addition of our Ginger Lemongrass Simple Syrup makes it the perfect happy hour drink or something to sip by a cozy fire.
The Zombie was created in the 1930’s by Donn Beach AKA Don the Beachcomber. As with many tiki drinks, the Zombie is not short on flavor, rum, and recipe variations.
Don was so protective over his recipes, that he wrote them in code- even his bartenders didn’t entirely know his formulations. He would premix elements and number the bottles, so a bartender may add a 1/2 oz. of “Don’s Mix Number 4” instead of the individual ingredients. While many of his recipes disappeared with his passing in 1989, bartenders, mixologists, and cocktail enthusiasts haven’t stopped attempts to crack the cocktail code.
'Tis the season for sweater weather, scary movies, and cocktails with creepy names. We’ve already shared our interpretation of the Corpse Reviver #2 and felt like its lesser-known sibling the Corpse Reviver #1 should also get some love.
“Strong enough to bring back the dead” is traditionally said to describe the cocktails in the Corpse Reviver family. A pre-prohibition classic, the Corpse Reviver #2 has enjoyed a resurgence in cocktail culture. It’s a truly delicious drink: bright and refreshing with floral notes.
Is there a more refreshing cocktail than a mojito? The brightness of fresh mint and lime paired with a crisp rum is a delightful treat on a summer day. The Social Mixers take highlights our spicy and bright Ginger Lemongrass Simple Syrup.
Enjoy this cocktail on your patio, porch, or if you need some fun-in-a-glass on a rainy day.
