  • Boulevardier - Its creation is ascribed to Erskine Gwynne, an American-born writer who founded a monthly magazine in Paris called Boulevardier, which appeared from 1927 to 1932.
  • Elderflower Champagne Cocktail - Enjoy the essence of fresh picked Elderflower blossoms with a divine splash of St. Germain Liquer in your favorite bubbly.
  • French 75 - French 75 is also called a 75 Cocktail, or in French simply a Soixante Quinze (Seventy Five). The drink dates to World War I, and an early form was created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris—later Harry's New York Bar—by barman Harry MacElhone   
  • Manhattan - The Manhattan was invented in the 1860s by a bartender named Black at a bar on Broadway near Houston Street.  Enjoy yours with the Bourbon or Rye of your choice, following the recipe below.    
  • Negroni - The most widely reported version of this drink's origin is that it was invented at Caffe Casoni in Florence, Italy in 1919. Legend tells that Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Forsco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin.
  • Old Fashioned - The first mention in print of "old fashioned cocktails” where it was called the “old fashioned whiskey cocktail” was in the Chicago Daily Tribune in February 1880. However, the Pendennis Club, a gentlemen's club founded in 1881 in Louisville, Kentucky, claims the old fashioned cocktail was invented there.
  • Quarantini - Our own "Quarantine-themed" take on the classic Martini. Yes - spring is indeed springing out there and it's the Elderflower that gives the Quarantini its special "Je ne sais quoi." Bottoms Up!
