Only distilled run made from sugar cane juice from Brazil can be called Cachaca. To make cachaça, sugarcane is washed and pressed through large metal rollers to extract the juice. Then, the juice is filtered and fermented. The sugarcane juice is fermented from one to three days then distilled, cooled and filtered again. The result is a white rum that has notes of raw sugar cane and the leavening agent that the individual distiller uses to make their own special blend. This drink is server the traditional way with little other than the Cachaca in the drink to enjoy the true flavor.

One of the classic cocktails and aperitif, this may be a little old fashioned for some but it grows on you. A before dinner drink that helps set the tone for dinner this is the perfect classy way to start a meal. A riff on the classic cocktail the French 75, the Citrus 75 updates the taste and mood with the hint of citrus and a float of Gin. Very refreshing and light. Perfect for the occasion where a lower proof is needed like, brunch or a afternoon get together. The Citrus Brunch is a light pretty drink that hits all the high citrus notes with the sparkle of Champagne. There is a lot of complexity in this cocktail with the layers of taste coming at you both together and one at a time. The bitters with the light taste of Absinthe is rich and a little dark. This gives way to the bite of the Rye then the mellowness of the Benedictine. Very classic for a great reason! Lots of taste. One to pull out to impress.

The cosmo or Cosmopolitan was a fixture on the bar scene as early as the mix 80’s. The drink was further popularized among young women by its frequent mention on the television program Sex and the City, where Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw, commonly ordered the drink when out with her girlfriends. The film adaptation made a reference to its popularity when Miranda asks why they stopped drinking them, Carrie replies "because everyone else started."

Very similar to a cosmo, the Cranberry Martini has an additional edge to it from the dry vermouth. Tart and tangy and not as sweet, we think this one might be a bit better.

We have to admit that we really have fun making up the names of these drinks!  The is a wonderful play off the flavors of the Tennessee Honey and sweet and spice notes.  The Rosemary makes this drink.  It also makes a beautiful holiday presentation for your cocktail event.  

The Cuba Libra, according to Baccardi, was born in a collision between the United States and Spain. It happened during the Spanish-American War at the turn of the century when Teddy Roosevelt, the Rough Riders, and Americans in large numbers arrived in Cuba. One afternoon, a group of off-duty soldiers from the U.S. Signal Corps were gathered in a bar in Old Havana. Fausto Rodriguez, a young messenger, later recalled that Captain Russell came in and ordered Bacardi (Gold) rum and Coca-Cola on ice with a wedge of lime. The captain drank the concoction with such pleasure that it sparked the interest of the soldiers around him. They had the bartender prepare a round of the captain's drink for them. The Bacardi rum and Coke was an instant hit. As it does to this day, the drink united the crowd in a spirit of fun and good fellowship. When they ordered another round, one soldier suggested that they toast ¡Por Cuba Libre! in celebration of the newly freed Cuba. The captain raised his glass and sang out the battle cry that had inspired Cuba's victorious soldiers in the War of Independence.

Tom Collins – Born in the late 1800s as part of a joke that was based on a man “Tom Collins” who was talking about the listener. This Tom Collins was usually just around the corner at a bar where the listener would rush off to see to this person talking about him. The drink gained great popularity and even had songs created around it. It was made with Gin and sparkling lemonade and remains much unchanged even in current days. Other Collins drinks like Whiskey or Vodka Collins follow much the same format with just a different spirit.

A twist on the classic Cachaca, the Tropical Cachaca has a little Amaretto and orange juice instead of the classic lime. Very tasty!

A riff on the Cosmo, the Blood Orange Cosmo is a little less sweet with a more complex taste. Very enjoyable. Sweet and very fun, the Cosmalize is a Cosmo with Alize Gold. Very good and just as deadly! Crawdaddy is light and refreshing; just the right amount to tartness to make that summer cocktail the best! A twist on an Old Fashion, the Claremont uses Orange Curaco to up the orange factor. Based on a James Bond book, the Casino Royal is a classic sounding and tasting cocktail with all the ingredients of a first rate cocktail. Just a kiss of Maraschino liqueur, the Cherry Kiss is a light fun drink that will give you just a hint of fall with the dusting of nutmeg. We love Chai tea, so the Chai Toddy makes perfect sense. Warm and good for warming you up on a cold night it's everything you would want. A great drink for a party of any sort, the Champagne Passion is fruity and light. Very tropical! Great for a tropical themed bridal shower or wedding. A great drink for a party of any sort, the Champagne Tropical is fruity and light. Very tropical!
