This month’s cocktail, Nola Proper, includes an ingredient straight from New Orleans, Fassionola syrup. Once thought of as long-lost, Cocktail & Sons resurrected it with a version made of fresh Ponchatoula strawberries, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, hibiscus, and lime. Bourbon pairs perfectly with this Fassionola syrup and lemon curd adds a little tanginess and creaminess for a perfect balance.
Our second drink this month, Firefly, includes tequila, all natural honey ginger spice syrup from Hudson & Lee, and Scrappy’s Firewater Tincture. A little apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and citric acid make the syrup so tasty and well balanced, it would be delicious by itself. You can make this drink more or less spicy by adjusting the drops of firewater tincture according to your preference.
Our Golden Hour cocktail is smooth and sippable, without being boring. Licor 43, brandy, honey syrup and a surprising ingredient - a pinch of salt. Learn more about micro-dosing your cocktails with salt and why it's a tool for many great bartenders.
