enhance your cocktail
Don’t feel pressured to get too creative… with just a few simple ingredients you can create unique cocktails with crafty appeal. Enhance standard spirits like the Martini with hand-stuffed blue cheese olives or orange bitters, and bring prestige to the Manhattan with a few dashes of Angostura bitters and a single large ice cube. Not only will that perfect cube enhance the appearance of an old classic, it will protect the integrity of that premium bourbon or
rye whiskey.
