How to Make a Cocktail Shrub or Drinking Shrub for Cocktails.

Fruits and vegetables The shrubs are excellent year round and can be prepared with all types of fruits and vegetables.

The Best Espresso Martini Recipe

If you have access to an espresso machine, prepare a “ristretto” for your espresso martini. A ristretto uses a normal amount of ground coffee, with a finer grind, but is extracted with about half the amount of water in the same amount of time. This produces a more concentrated dose of coffee. Why use a ristretto? The actual chemical composition and tastes are different from espresso. Chemical compounds present in coffee dissolved in hot water at different rates. The balance is different in a ristretto due to a greater proportion of faster extracting compounds, with relatively less of the typical… Read More »The Best Espresso Martini Recipe

Transition Your Bar Menu From Summer To Fall

The seasons are changing and it’s time to start thinking about your fall cocktail plan.
