    THE COPPER CAFE

    How do you take your coffee? For me, for this drink at least I’ll take mine double double. As in double cashew milk and double the whiskey. This cocktail is versatile as you can…

    RED CURRANT JULEP

    While I’m classifying this colourful cocktail as a “julep” it looks more reminiscent of a sangria. Made with just a few ingredients this glorious beverage is perfect for quenching you (and your friends’) thirst…

    HYSSOP LEMON JULEP

    Have you heard of Hyssop before? I certainly hadn’t until recently. Hyssop is a herbaceous plant that has medicinal properties tied to helping with cough relief and as an antiseptic. I was intrigued by…

    THE GREEN THUMB

    While I am a huge fan of sours, I have a confession to make: I have an egg white (and dairy) intolerance. But I absolutely love cocktails that have a creamy, rich texture to…

    WATERMELON BOURBON FIZZ

    This week I’ve been down in Louisville, Kentucky, taking in the full bourbon experience. And by “full experience” I mean I’ve tasted a lot of bourbon. All the bourbons. Well at least over 50…

    THE NEW YORK SANGRIA

    Summertime is all about punches, sangrias and fruit-forward cocktails. Two of my favourite summertime sippers is definitely the New York Sour and Sangria. Both reminiscent of each other, I created a combinatory version of…
