Celebrate your favorite drinks along with the first week of spring with cocktails from Reyka Vodka, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Drambuie, Monkey Shoulder Whisky, Ancho Reyes, Montelbobos Mezcal, Hudson Whiskey and Q Drinks.



New York Manhattan

New York Manhattan

2 parts Hudson Whiskey Manhattan Rye
¾ part Sweet Vermouth
1 dash each of aromatic and orange bitters
Add ingredients to a mixing glass and stir (don’t shake!) until well-chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass. Peel a silver dollar-sized twist of orange peel and express oils from the twist onto the surface of the drink and discard. Garnish with a cocktail cherry or two.

Hudson Whiskey, the first legal pot-stilled whiskey distilled in New York state since prohibition, sources 90% of its grains from within 40 miles of the distillery.


Honey Sour

Honey Sour

1 ½ parts Drambuie
¾ parts Monkey Shoulder
¾ part Lemon Juice
3 slices Ginger
Egg White
Muddle Ginger with Drambuie, then add the other ingredients. Dry shake, then add ice and shake again. Fine strain out the ginger and garnish with Angostura bitters
A riff on the popular Sour and the oft-copied neo-classic Penicillin, Drambuie’s honey & spices complement the silky mouth feel from the egg white.

Drambuie is made from a delightful combination of scotch whisky, heather honey, herbs and spices

Monkey Shoulder, the mischievous malt whisky, is made for mixing in great cocktails like Show Me The Monkey


Reyka Southside

Reyka South Side

2 parts Reyka vodka
1 part fresh lime juice
¾ part simple syrup (1:1)
4-6 Mint leaves
Combine all ingredients together in cocktail shaker and double strain and serve in a coupe glass with a mint leaf garnish.

Reyka Vodka is an Icelandic born vodka and provides a smooth and crisp base for both complex and simple cocktails.


Sailor Jerry’s Ginger Apple Cooler

Sailor Jerry’s Ginger Apple Cooler

1 part Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
½ part ginger syrup
¾ part apple juice
¼ part fresh lemon juice
1 ½ parts Q Club Soda
In empty mixing glass, measure Sailor Jerry. Add ginger syrup, apple juice and fresh lemon juice. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into chilled highball glass and fill with ice. Top with soda water and garnish with candied ginger.

Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is a Caribbean Rum blended with 100% natural spices and flavors.


Smoke and Fire Margarita

Smoke & Fire Margarita

¾ part Montelobos Mezcal
¾ part Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur
¾ part Milagro Silver Tequila
1 part fresh lime juice
½ part agave nectar
Using a lime wedge, wet the rim of an old fashioned glass, salt it, and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake, and double strain over fresh ice into the glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.


Smoking Rose Paloma

Smoking Rose Paloma

Smoking Rose Paloma – Recipe by Ashley Conway
5 parts Q Drinks Grapefruit Soda
2 parts Montelobos Mezcal
¾ part fresh lime juice
½ part rose simple syrup
For the flower ice: Fill a glass 1/4 the way full with water. Add rose petals. Prop on it’s side in the freezer, making sure it doesn’t spill. Let freeze completely before using. This is an optional step, if you are looking to make a drink ASAP (we all have those days), just add regular ice to the glass. But if you do take the time for this step, it makes one pretty cocktail!

Add all liquid ingredients except Q Drinks Grapefruit Soda into a shaker. Shake well to help dilute the cocktail a bit since the ice in the glass won’t melt as fast. Remove the glass from the freezer. Strain into the glass. Top with the Grapefruit Soda and stir. Garnish with grapefruit slice.
