RECIPE: White Pike Bloody Mary

Local, seasonal cocktails sound hard to come by, until you realize you live in a city that’s surrounded by sweet corn and tomatoes. White Pike Whiskey, located in the Finger Lakes, does all the farming, milling, distilling and bottling to create their smooth, clean whiskey. Lucky us, Steven Ljubicic from White Pike gave us his recipe for the perfect fall cocktail: the Bloody Mary.

One Great Drink: The Manzanotta Tequila Cocktail

While bartender contests are usually not our scene (don’t you HATE it when you get a recipe that calls for three things you’ve never even heard of, let alone have in your pantry?), there was one drink at the Don Julio Tequila cocktail competition at Good Spirits we tried that we absolutely have to, and can easily, make at home.

FROM OUR RECIPE ARCHIVES: The White Manhattan

After all the holiday feasting and feting, who couldn’t use a little pick-me-up to get through the work week? Here’s a cocktail from the folks at Kings County Distillery and Marlow & Sons restaurant in Williamsburg that’s just right for our we’d-rather-be-baking-cookies-than-sitting-at-this-desk mood.
