Downeast Rickey

Downeast Rickey

Recipe #119 – Downeast Rickey.  Our twist on a classic cocktail, we swapped out the traditional measure of gin for some true micro distilled vodka from Maine.  Combined with freshly squeezed lime juice, real grenadine (made with actual Pomegranates), and fresh sparkling club make for a refreshing cocktail worthy of its “Classic” status.  The depth of flavor of authentic grenadine will really shine if you can get your hands on some, however swapping in the common stuff still makes for a really, really, tasty beverage. Recipe: In a collins glass filled with fresh ice, combine: 1.5 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice 1/2 oz REAL Greanadine (use the best you can find) Top with fresh club soda Garnish with a slice of...

The Twenty 2 Key Lime Pie

The Twenty 2 Key Lime Pie

A slight modification on our Recipe #8 – Lemon Meringue Pie, this recipe uses fresh squeezed lime juice and sweetened condensed milk to create a frothy and delicious bite of pie you can drink. Be sure to chill all ingredients well before mixing, since this recipe calls for a dry shake (without ice). Count to 30 and shake as hard as you can to transform the egg white into a meringue like consistency packed with sweet lime flavor. Recipe: Prep: Chill glass and all ingredients well. Rim glass with finely crushed Graham Crackers In an empty shaker combine: 2 oz Twenty 2 Vodka 1 oz Lime Juice 1 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 Egg White (yes, raw) Dry shake (no ice) hard for at least 30 seconds Pour into chilled and rimmed...
