blushing bride

This elegant sparkling cocktail is little more than a floral improvement on Italian Prosecco; we add light flavor to crisp prosecco with 100% cranberry juice, handmade triple-sec, and just a breath of rose water. This cocktail is still served in a glass decanter adorned with velvety roses. Perfect prior to a wedding ceremony!

Waterlily

The Waterlily is our drink for undercover gin lovers. We blend London dry gin with equal parts Giffard’s Créme de Violet, handmade triple-sec and fresh-squeezed lemon juice.

Poured through chilled lines and topped with atomized orange zest. It’s a mouthful of sweetly decadent herbal character that only these spirits can provide. If you’re a pro, serve this over hand-cut 2-inch ice cubes; amateurs, however, may enjoy a little more dilution, if they can take it at all.

Hugh Kelly was once experimenting with his Triple-sec recipe and happened to make an orange syrup so good, we designed an entirely new drink around it. The inspiration itself is a reduction of orange juice, zest and sugar, spiced with bitters and vanilla, which we temper with water and Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum. Then we carbonate the keg and serve this beauty through cold taps.

This drink is a personal favorite, and destined for the menu of our latest bar project.

Then we carbonate this mix for a dancing flavor reminiscent of Cherry Coke. We serve it through chilled taps over ice with a Luxardo cherry. So good.
