Manhattan // Weekend Cocktail No. 23



We received this awesome french vermouth in the mail from La Quintinye and decided we'd give it a try with a classic Manhattan. The ratio is 2-1-2, and fun fact to help you remember, that's the area code for Manhattan. Shake it all together and top with a maraschino cherry and enjoy!
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz vermouth
  • 2 dashes of bitter
  • A maraschino cherry
Shake with ice & serve very cold.

Party Drink // Rosy Limeade


I went to a cooking with flowers workshop the other day, lead by Erin Lozier, and she taught us how to make this rose simple syrup. I thought it would make a great limeade and decided to give it a try. It's just festive enough for your 4th of July. Also, feel free to add a shot of rum or tequila to take it up a notch. 

Serves 2-3
The goods:
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water 
  • 1 cup dried rose buds (found at a tea shop)
  • splash of seltzer water
Directions:
1. Combine sugar, water and rose buds in a small saucepan to make the simple syrup. Bring to a boil and boil for 4 minutes.
2. Remove from heat and strain.
3. Combine 1 cup lime juice with 1/2 cup or so of rose simple syrup. Add ice and seltzer water to taste.
