THREE DOTS & A DASH (•••—)
Rhum Agricole, @edrumguy Demerara Rum, homemade Falernum, 🍯, Pimento Dram, @angosturahouse, Orange Juice, Lime Juice and three @luxardousa cherries & pineapple spear and fronds for garnish.

This drink was named after the WWII sign of resistance that became known as V for Victory ✌️. V graffiti, the hand sign and Morse code taps were used to signal from one resister to another in nazi-occupied territories. Three dots and a dash is the Morse Code for the letter V.
Donn Beach named this drink after that expression. •••—

SCOTCH LODGE
(Recipe by @tommytweed)

Here’s a one to celebrate #internationalscotchday! It’s become one of my favorite Scotch drinks. I wish I could find it at more bars.

This drink was created by Tommy Klus. It was a twist on another drink he invented called the Black Lodge. Both drinks were an allusion to @twinpeaks. Check out the video for more info (link in bio). The drink is made with @benromach Peat Smoke (a really smoky Scotch), @cynararg, @combierusa Rouge (🍒 Liqueur), @puntemes_it (slightly bitter Sweet Vermouth), Orange Bitters & 🍊 Twist. This drink is kinda like a big, complex Boulevardier with smoke.

TEARS DRY ON THEIR OWN (via @little_tonis) - @delmagueymezcal Vida, White Vermouth, Amaro Foro, 100° Rye & grapefruit twist. Created by @bbats during his tenure at Bar Toni and named after the Amy Winehouse song. One of my favorites. Cheers!

M-ONE

Another one for #tikithesnowaway, a project by @ntitz and @homebargirl to bring some tropical charm to January. This is a rare one from Joe Scialom, the inventor of the Suffering Bastard. It was rescued, of course, by Beachbum Berry and comes from 1965 when Scialom was in London. It’s also one of the few tiki drinks made with whiskey.
It’s made with @compassboxwhiskyco Scotch, @combierusa Orange Liqueur, Fresh Tangerine Juice and @angosturahouse Bitters. It’s usually garnished with a fresh pineapple spear and borage, but I used a dried pineapple wheel and a mint sprig.

Berry suggests you make it with a slightly smoky scotch and I couldn’t agree more. Scialom always found ways to combine interesting, often local ingredients to create exotic drinks and this is a great example of that. Cheers!

SING SING (via @biboergosumla)
Rye, @lillet1872 Rosé, Cherry Liqueur, Pineapple Liqueur, China China Amer, Clarified Pineapple Juice & absinthe.
Served up by the always badass, @robert_mcgee_.
It’s kind of a Singapore Sling made in the image of a Manhattan. Cheers!

SUFFERING BASTARD
The next submission for #tikithesnowaway, a project by @ntitz and @homebargirl.

This is a tiki classic from Joe Scialom, who managed to create a successful marriage between the Gimlet and the Horse’s Neck.
It’s made with London Dry Gin (@fordsgin), Brandy (@copperandkings), homemade Lime Cordial, @angosturahouse Bitters, Ginger Beer and garnished with an Orange Wheel, Mint Sprig and vintage Jolly Roger stir stick.

It was designed as a hangover remedy like the Corpse Reviver No. 2 or supposedly the Zombie. (Check out the video link on my bio for more details. It dives deep into the history of this one.) It tastes like an exotic Mamie Taylor or a much more complex Moscow Mule. The spirits don’t get lost in the mix. And it’s made worlds better by the homemade Lime Cordial (recipe by @12bottlebar). You really want to make it with a spicy Ginger Beer. I’d recommend @fevertree_uk as your first option, but @fentimansltd also works well. I’ve never tried it as a hangover remedy, but it’s a great first drink of the evening. Cheers!

TONY ROCKY HORROR
(recipe by #samross)

Here’s a little entry for #tikithesnowaway, which is a project started by @ntitz and @homebargirl.

This drink was created by #samueljoelross (the inventor of the Penicillin) for The Dorsey, the bar at @venetianvegas. It was named after the unseen, but much discussed, Samoan character from Pulp Fiction.

The drink is made with Jamaican Rum (@edrumguy), Falernum No. 9 (via @cocktailchron), homemade Orgeat (via @12bottlebar), fresh lime juice, Absinthe (@copperandkings), with Mint and fresh Nutmeg for garnish.

I served this one in a @tradersams Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki mug, plunked the only modern Vegas stir stick I had in there, from @goldentiki and a metal straw.
It’s really good and fairly simple for a tiki drink. The mint and nutmeg on the nose is the perfect sensory introduction for this drink. Cheers!

REMEMBER THE ALIMONY (via @herzog.muc) - @monkey47_dry_gin, @cynararg, Sherry & orange twist. Recipe by @dangbaum. This one was also made by the head bartender, @inflamesflo. You’ll notice that it has an awesome Herzog-branded clear ice cube. @alcademics would be proud. You can see it better when you swipe to the other pictures. ➡️➡️➡️

SMOKY GROVE (via @herzog.muc) - @ardbeg whisky, @belsazar_vermouth, @puntemes_it, aromatic bitters, orange bitters and an orange twist. Perfectly made by the head bartender, @inflamesflo, who was a great sport with my custom drink requests. Excellent bar program. Superb presentation. Cheers! Servus! Prost! Auf wiedersehen, Munich!

Barrel-Aged Boulevardier (via @katzorange). This one is aged in a barrel that previously held coffee, so there’s a little coffee note in the finish. It is excellent! The barrel-aged Boulevardier was one of the most successful and most exciting barrel-agings I’ve done at home (video coming soon) but this touch with the coffee was particularly great. I might have to try that one next time. Cheers!

Thanks to @berlindrinks and @berlincocktails for suggestions on the Berlin cocktail scene.

Barrel-Aged Vieux Carré (via @katzorange) served in a coupe glass and the remainder in a chilled sidecar. This bar serves the barrel-aged Vieux Carré with an orange peel (instead of lemon, like you would with a “fresh” Vieux Carré), but this is exactly how I serve my homemade barrel-aged Vieux Carré as well. Great minds... Thanks to @berlindrinks and @berlincocktails for suggestions on the Berlin cocktail scene.

Gin & Tonic (via @botanicalaffairs) - @spreegin, @doctorpolidori Tonic Water & Cucumber for garnish. This place is a gin-and-tonic-only bar. They have hundreds of gins and dozens of tonic waters. They work hard to find the best pairing of gin, tonic and garnish that works best for you. They sample gins. Pair the tonic and possible garnishes that would work best and build them into a drink. You might not be able to leave once you start exploring different options. It’s the hotel California of bars. Cheers!

PENICILLIN (via @the_rabbithole_bar) - blended whisky, lemon, ginger syrup, honey syrup, Islay float. I normally hate a lemon peel for garnish in this drink because it ruins the smokiness of the Islay on the nose. However this lemon peel wasn’t expressed on the glass, so it wasn’t really aromatic. The smokiness came through. The ginger was fiery as hell. All in all, this one was great Penicillin, made by a bar that knew what it was doing. Cheers! °

BLOOD MONEY (via @helstamsterdam)
@bythedutch Genever, Sweet Vermouth, Orange Juice and Dutch Cherry Beer. It’s the Dutch version of a Blood and Sand. The Blood and Sand was named after an American silent film. This was named after a Dutch silent film named Blood Money. An original creation by @kristianjagerman. The whisky was swapped out for Genever. The cherry Liqueur for the cherry beer. The Vermouth was a Dutch brand. The result is a bit lighter and more sippable than the original Blood and Sand. Definitely worth checking out. #distinguishedeuroxmas
GIN & TONIC
via Gin & Tonic Bar at @foodhallen
@sipsmith London Dry and @fevertree_uk Tonic with lime, ginger and mint for garnish. This bar specializes in dozens of different Gin & Tonics. London, American, Spanish and Holland Gins represented. Definitely worth pulling up a stool.

I met up with @welcometomybar tonight for a drink at the wonderful @tales.and.spirits. This is one of their signature drinks: 🧟‍♀️ LA MUERTA 🧟‍♂️ This is basically a Mexican Zombie, only with a blend of mezcals, tequilas and Liqueurs that have been fat-washed with avocado as the base. Then it’s mixed with a house-made soda of Tepache, verjus, hibiscus, agave, @bittermens mole bitters and ginger. It’s definitely it’s own drink. It’s not a whole lot like a Zombie, except that it’s very strong. It’s really good and of course it has an excellent presentation. Cheers!
