Red House Special

Red House Special

The flavor of this cocktail is just plain interesting. By incorporating 4 ingredients that go really really well together in pairs (like cranberry and lime, diet coke and lime, vodka and cranberry, etc), the resulting beverage offers a complex flavor-experience. The lime at the end is key in tying all of the flavors together. And if you really like lime, be sure to give this cocktail an extra dose, you won’t be disappointed. Recipe: In a pint glass filled with ice, combine: 1.5 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1.5 oz Cranberry Juice Top off with Cola, approx. 3 oz (regular or diet) Squeeze a lime wedge over the drink before serving Garnish with a cherry & the squeezed lime...
White Cranberry Cucumber Martini

White Cranberry Cucumber Martini

If you’ve been following our 3:00 Cocktail recipes since the beginning , you might recognize this flavor combination from Recipe #3 – White Cranberry Cucumber Spritzer. Well, the flavors work so well together, we wanted to offer something similar, but with a slight twist. This recipe is more of a martini strength, but the True Micro Distilled vodka’s neutrality will yield respectively to the floral cucumber and more-sweet-than-tart white cranberry. Recipe: In an empty shaker glass, combine: Muddle 3 peeled cucumber slices Fill the shaker glass to the top with ice and add, 2 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1 oz White Cranberry Juice 1/4 oz fresh lime juice Shake hard and strain into a chilled martini glass Garnish with a lime...
Coconut Candied Apple

Coconut Candied Apple

Lots of inspiration led to the creation of this cocktail. At the moment, local Apple Cider is at it’s prime, so we’ll be calling for it this week’s recipe. And with cider season comes the fall fairs, and candied apples with their crazy array of coatings. For our coating, we went for coconut, which we achieved with 1 oz of Coconut rum (Malibu or the like). I bet amaretto, or frangelico would also taste great substituted for the Malibu. Finally, the Hershey’s Caramel Syrup really makes this cocktail special, look for it in the ice cream section of your local grocer, or let us know if you have a good alternative! Recipe Text: In an empty shaker glass, combine: 1.5 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1  oz Coconut Rum (Malibu) 1.5 oz Local Apple Cider 1/2 oz ( 1 Tbsp) Hershey’s Caramel Syrup Shake hard to mix and chill Strain into a prepped martini...
Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

Inspired by our wildly popular Recipe # 30 – The Black Magic Martini, we used the same measure of similar ingredients to construct this cocktail. Instead of Sambucca, we opted for some premium Absinthe…and instead of Chambord, this recipe calls for Prune Juice. The result is a smooth cocktail experience with a complex flavor profile (provided by both the Absinthe and prune juice) that’s as deep and dark as the name suggests. If you are a fan of sweet drinks, this recipe could probably handle the addition of simple syrup or sugar, though we enjoyed ours as is. And respect the measure on the Absinthe, any more than a half-ounce pour (just 1 tablespoon) and it will quickly overpower the recipe. Recipe: In a shaker glass filled with ice, combine: 2 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1 oz Prune Juice 1/2 oz Absinthe Shake hard to mix and chill Strain into a chilled martini glass Garnish with a skewered Sunsweet...
Catch Twenty 2 by the Great Lost Bear

Catch Twenty 2 by the Great Lost Bear

This cocktail was created by the experts at The Great Lost Bear in Portland.  We’re excited that the GLB choose true micro distilled vodka when making their Catch Twenty2, and we wanted to thank them by making their championship cocktail today’s featured recipe. Recipe: In an empty shaker glass: Muddle 3 fresh basil leaves and 3 fresh mint leaves Add 1.5 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1 oz White Grape Juice Top with ice and shake hard to mix Strain into a chilled martini glass Finish with a splash of fresh club soda Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and...
