THE CECILE (Cucumber & Watermelon Margarita with Clover Honey & Thyme)
There are hieroglyphs in ancient Egypt (over 5,000 years old) depicting Watermelons. Wild Cucumbers showed up in India about 4,000 years ago and the cultivated varieties have surfaced all over the globe. Cucumber and Watermelon simply belong together and are actually related to each other in the gourd family Cucurbitaceae. The sweet flavor of Watermelon is the perfect counterpoint to the green, grassy astringency and crispness of Cucumbers. Thyme warms the fruits while the Clover Honey’s sweet flowery flavor rounds-out this cocktail. With its own origins in hot climates, Tequila helps this blend refreshingly delight, far surpassing a mere Margarita.
THE COOPER (Blood Orange-Ginger Old Fashioned)
Blood Oranges develop their signature color during cool, Sicilian fall and winter nights. Their hue ranges from a streaked ruby blush to a deep maroon color. Known locally as Arancia Rossa di Sicilia, this beautiful fruit is typically less acidic and sweeter than other oranges. Their raspberry-like tartness acts as the perfect base on the original Whiskey Cocktail, with classic ingredients like Brandied Cherries and Artisanal Bitters. The addition of extracted Ginger adds a unique complexity to this time-honored favorite which is never sweet, always smart. We bet you can’t drink just one.
THE SEYMOUR (Meyer Lemon Daiquiri with Bergamot, Chamomile & Vanilla)
First brought from China to America by Frank Meyer about 1910, his namesake the Meyer lemon is a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin orange. Less acidic than a traditional lemon, the Meyer lemon provides a burst of fresh lemon and pairs well with the bergamot to round out the sweet citrus flavor in this version of the classic daiquiri. Chamomile lends its light, airy floral components to the blend to keep things easy while the rich Madagascar Vanilla showcases the warm caramel personality of fine rum. If there’s a more delicious, refined tropical cocktail out there, we haven’t found it.
THE CLYDE (Peach Cosmopolitan with Benedictine Inspired Herbs & Artisanal Bitters)
Having its heyday in the 1930’s at the storied Russian Tea Room in Manhattan, the first vodka-Based cocktail to make it in the United States was the Gypsy Queen. Originally, this cocktail utilized Benedictine, a liqueur made of herbs, roots and sugar and based on a recipe by Benedictine Monks in the 15th Century. Here, those raw herbs have been coupled with a touch of Peach, in lieu of sugar. Hand-crafted bitters and a slight citrus zest elevate the vodka, and your experience, to tantalizing, exciting and surprising heights. The Clyde will make you wonder why you ever settled for cranberry juice or club soda.
THE OLIVER (An Unclassic Negroni with Wormwood Extracts)
Born in Firenze, Italy in 1919, the Negroni bears the name of Count Camillo Negroni who mixed his Italian heritage with a fondness for gin acquired in London to create one of the world’s most perfect cocktails. Herb & Lou’s version integrates Campari’s bitter aroma of herbs and spicy cherry-orange flavor with the sweet tang of London Dry Gin. That convergence is amplified, enriched and modernized by a strong focus on the fundamental Wormwood characteristics of Torino (red) vermouth. Additional extractives soften and invigorate as they generate a distinctive experience certain to conjure the Count’s original delight at his creation.
