Pimm’s Cup is the official sunny afternoon of England. Just like Mint Julep is tied to Kentucky Derby, Pimm’s Cup is the official drink of Wimbledon.
An old favorite gets little fancy: Gentleman’s Press melds Tennessee Whiskey naturally with the bubbly freshness of ginger beer and a hint of lime.
While it may not feature peat as heavily as some Islay malts, the subtle peat flavor in Talisker gives an earthy background note that suits the rocky flavor. Because of the complex flavors mixing in this whisky, some people may find it takes a few drinks to get used to it. However once appreciated, you won’t find a better drink than Talisker for relaxing at the end of a long day.
This newly created Old Fashioned is bright green and it’s perfect cocktail to sip on in St. Patrick’s Day.
Orin Swift Abstract is a relatively new California red wine gem from Dave Phinney, a gifted and fast-rising winemaker. Dave is the owner of Orin Swift Cellars, and has come a long way since beginning his career with 2 tons of purchased Zinfandel grapes just a year out of college in 1998! His wine-making success includes some phenomenal wines such as Papillon and The Prisoner, and he launched the Abstract label with the 2009 vintage. Abstract came out of Dave’s love of Grenache and a desire to make a blend using that varietal as the focal point. The wine has an inky concentration rounded out with Petite Sirah and Syrah.
Larceny Bourbon’s innovated name owes itself to legendary whiskey thief John E. Fitzgerald. His penchant for stealing bourbons straight from their aging barrels gives inspiration to this new Kentucky Bourbon that has been released from Heaven Hill. Like other favorites such as Maker’s Mark or Pappy Van Winkle, this bourbon is wheated – this time from the mind of Parker’s Heritage and makers Evan Williams and Elijah Craig. Unlike the more traditional rye, the wheat is used as the flavoring grain. This difference results in a bourbon that is softer, less spicy, and fuller than those flavored by rye.
