Cocktail Music

Cocktail Music

By Katrina Jazayeri

Cocktails make music.

The simplest music.

Its most basic form.

Percussion.

Improvised percussion.

You only need what you already have.

You can hear it when you’ve got it right.

Doug says he can’t find an Old Fashioned Cocktail he likes as much as ours. The first time he said it I was surprised. Of all the inventive versions of the Old Fashioned out there, ours is always by the book. Sometimes I actually get a little nervous when I look down at our list of three to five cocktails, mostly traditional, and worry that people aren’t going to think they are interesting, or at least varied, enough. Not that we don’t ever innovate. We do. Often. When we do, though, we are always sure to start on solid foundations; the right techniques, marched out to the right timing. After that, it’s easy to embellish with our own signature. Or not. We are proud to present your favorite drinks. Even if we can’t take credit for their invention every time, we always treat them as if we can; right.
