Pretty much the adult version of one of our childhood candy store favorites. Tart yet sweet, the Lemon Drop is typically drank as a shot or straight up in a martini glass. Sugar the rim of your glass for an added kick of sweetness.
The cocktail we now know as the martini has a muddy origin story; its name has changed over the years, as have its contents. But by the early 20th century, what we now refer to as the martini was codified as a mix of London Dry gin and dry vermouth, garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. Since then it has permeated American culture and become an unrivaled symbol of sophistication. In its famous conical glass, the martini is a visual currency the world over, on millions of menus and neon signs. In many ways the martini is THE cocktail. Our take on the 50/50 martini (also known as the perfect martini) consists of half Botanist Gin and half dry vermouth. This variation is lighter and more refreshing, perfect for the spring and summer seasons.
Originally created for Chambord's worldwide promotion, the key ingredient to this drink is the Chambord liqueur. The unique feature for this drink is that it was created specifically for a liqueur, which means substituting it would leave a bland taste.
In this lighter version of the classic gin Martini, St-Germain provides the perfect balance of flavors: the botanicals of the gin, the wine notes of the vermouth, and the fruity notes of St-Germain.
A quirky and complicated man, Winston Churchill was known for his love of libations. When asked how he would like his gin martini prepared he replied “I would like to observe the vermouth from across the room while I drink my martini." Served chilled and neat, this drink contains nothing more than gin and ice in close proximity to a bottle of vermouth. Wacky and unique just like it's name sake.
A variation on the French Martini, this recipe replaces pineapple for the more exotic, Carribbean flavor of mango. Chambord is one of our favorite cocktail additions -- when we restock our bar, we always make sure a bottle of this is on the list.
