SPECIAL GUEST : DAVID GRAPSHI

He will be featuring the long awaited Expresiones Del Corazon Tequila
“The blanco is amazing, but to do the whole loop and get Buffalo Trace in the picture, we are maturing these specially selected agave tequilas, to be called Expresiones de Corazon, in four woods. Number one turned out to be reposado aged in Buffalo Trace barrels for 11 months. That leaves us with three añejos – one aged in Sazerac Rye barrels, one in Georger T. Stagg barrels, and one in Van Winkle barrels. We don’t know the exact age they will be but they’ll be anywhere from a year and three or four months to two years. I say that because they are still in wood, and we monitor them monthly. I go down once a quarter, Mario Echanove [master distiller] and Miguel Cedeno Cruz do frequent tastings, and all three are tasting amazing but we’re going to give them a little more time to mature.”

Sangrita Thoughts
“The history and origin of sangrita is a little mysterious and it goes back to the 1920’s. The word sangrita translates to “little blood”. Though Sangrita is still a fairly new concept and taste to most consumers, in the Mexican Pacific region bordering the state of Jalisco, where the majority of tequila is produced, it was a well known accompaniment to the drink. As tequila gained worldwide popularity in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, commercial efforts to recreate the mysterious red drink were attempted (most of which ended up like a bloody mary mix which locals and traditionalists definitely agree is NOT sangrita). The original recipe is disputed but one theory is that it was a combination of pomegranate syrup, chile peppers, spices, orange juice and lime juice.”

Casey’s Irish Pub – Gods of Macho
They wear pink. And they fucking rock! It’s true, some dudes can wear pink and still kick your ass. Don’t worry, The Gods of Macho won’t literally beat you up but they will wear pink. And might call upon the power of Satan to give them the power to to rock harder than any other band, in the world! I was just thinking, what would Lemmy from Motorhead look like in pink? Anyways, about The Gods of Macho…They are a hard rock band from Los Angeles who play it loud and heavy. And it’s the perfect chaser to your shots of Jameson. It doesn’t matter if you likes glam punk, metal, even did the humpty dance once or twice in your lifetime, you will love The Gods of Macho. I guarantee it. And if you’re not sold at the end of the show I won’t refund you anything. It’s FREE all month! Get used to it!

Mix This: The Sidecar

May 23rd, 2012 — 5:06pm


As I was sitting at Cole’s talking with Brent Falco one evening recently (the Bar Manager extraordinaire who I’m sure you’re familiar with, and if not you need to head down there right now!) a nice lady ordered a Sidecar from her. She asked if there was anything she could use instead of Jack (!) because she had been drinking them in more of a club setting and the place she frequented used Daniels. Brent didn’t even bat an eye, and made her and amazing Sidecar–sans said Jack/with Brandy, and the difference to her was immediately shown on her face.

This easy cocktail hails from around the prohibition era. Its simple mix of Brandy, Cointreau and fresh Lemon juice is simple yet extremely effective in getting you in the place you’d like to be. I stress that it should be FRESH Lemon juice and not a mix–I know some like to use a mix because some like this cocktail to be a little on the sweeter side, but you can add .25 of simple syrup instead or even sugar-rim the glass.

Sidecar
- 1.5 oz Brandy
- 3/4oz Cointreau
- 3/4oz Fresh Lemon Juice
- (optional sugar rimmed glass)
- Ice to tumbler, Shake and strain in Cocktail glass.

*BTW I know Brent’s take might be a little different than mine, so next time you’re in Cole’s ask her about hers. Its worth it :)
