Screaming Red Head

Screaming Red Head

1 part true micro distilled vodka. 2 parts ginger ale. 1/3 part grenadine. Mix it in any glass you like, from shot to Big Gulp. For sipping on the deck, we chose a rocks glass, and built this cocktail over fresh ice. It’s red. It’s sweet. It might be your new favorite. And according to a quick google search for “Screaming Red Head”, it’s an original (at least in the cocktail sense) 😉 . If you fancy, substitute diet ginger ale for a “Skinny Screaming Red Head”. Special thanks to Jac Arbour, VP of Combined Benefits United out of Hallowell, who we met at our recent after party for the Libra Future Fund gathering, and who ordered this combo of ingredients that we fell in love with at first taste. Recipe: In a rocks glass filled with ice, combine 1.5 oz Twenty 2 vodka 3oz Ginger Ale 1/2 oz Grenadine Stir to mix Garnish with a cherry and a lime...
Cherry Limeade #5

Cherry Limeade #5

Okay. If you’ve ever visited a Sonic drive thru, you already know that we used them for inspiration when creating this cocktail recipe. But it wasn’t as simple as it sounds. We had 4 previous versions using classic cherry liqueurs like Luxardo and Cherry Herring, but they just did not taste anything like what we wanted this drink to be. After persisting through some grueling trial and error, recipe #5 emerged as the clear winner. We’ve deconstructed a favorite, and rebuilt it by incorporating some true micro distilled vodka and the syrup from our jar of maraschino cherries. Recipe: In a pint glass filled with crushed ice, combine 2 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1/2 oz Fresh lime juice 1 oz Syrup from a jar of Maraschino Cherries Top off with Lemon Lime Soda Insert a bendy-straw and stir once Garnish with a lime wheel and at least 3...
Veinte Dos Margarita

Veinte Dos Margarita

We don’t hate tequila, we just have more bad-tequila memories than positive ones. Besides that, you aren’t trading anything away by leaving the tequila on the shelf and substituting in true micro distilled vodka for this recipe. If you have the time and don’t mind a little extra cleanup, combine ingredients in a blender and add 1 cup of ice per serving. Recipe: Prep: Rim a large rocks glass with kosher salt In a pint glass over fresh ice, combine: 1.5 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1.5 oz Triple Sec 1 .5 oz Regular (as in not light) Beer 1 oz Fresh squeezed lime juice Stir well to mix and chill Strain into rimmed glass over fresh...
Tropical Escape Martini

Black Magic Martini

Black Magic Martini

This recipe was developed for Easter, but we opted to hang onto it until now. Really, we were struggling for a name fit for this recipe, and couldn’t think of any better name than “Black Magic Martini” that suggested by Deb Murphy (who gets a free t-shirt 😉 ) This martini is best when each ingredient is measured precisely. The licorice-anise flavors of the Sambuca can be overpowering if you add more than the called for dose. If you get it right, the black-raspberry and black-jelly-bean flavors will compliment each other perfectly. Oh, and more info on Licorice Allsorts. Recipe: In a shaker filled with fresh ice, combine: 2 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1 oz Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur 1/2 oz Sambuca Shake hard to mix ingredients well Strain into a chilled martini glass Garnish with 3-4 skewered licorice...
