Craft Cocktail Recipe: #031714 & St. Patrick’s Day Special Cocktails with Castle Brands

On March 10, 2014, in Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

Kim and I were sent a package of samples from Castle Brands, an international importer and marketer of spirits. Some of their brands include Clontarf Whiskey, Jefferson’s small batch bourbon and Gosling’s Rum.  They’re running a contest with a grand prize trip to Ireland. While we are not eligible to enter, we were feeling inspired […]

Craft Cocktail Recipe: #090713 Penny Packer Bourbon with Allspice Dram

On September 12, 2013, in Cocktails, Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

We recently picked up a copy of Savory Cocktails: Sour Spicy Herbal Umami Bitter Smoky Rich Strong by Greg Henry. In it was a drink that caught our eye, “The Spice Trail”. Clove infused honey syrup, gin, rye, allspice dram and bitters. It’s a very complex drink, and like every other recipe we get our […]

Craft Cocktail Recipe: #070313 California Sour

On July 8, 2013, in Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

A New York Sour is a classic cocktail that we decided to tweak. It turned out really good on the first try which surprised us. It helped that we used a very good rye whiskey, spectacular Syrah and some of our own homemade simple syrup. This drink is very easy to make and surprisingly addictive. […]

Craft Cocktail Recipe: #062213 Perfecting the Mai Tai

On June 24, 2013, in Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

The Mai Tai is a surprisingly difficult drink to nail down. Over the last couple of years, Kim and I have had oue share in the quest for the very best. Our favorite to date was from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki beach at their Mai Tai Bar. To be specific, it is the […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo! What better way to celebrate than with a tequila-based craft cocktail. Here is one we put together to battle those mad margaritas out there.

Craft Cocktail Recipe: #030213 Scotch, Meyer Lemons & Ginger

On March 6, 2013, in Cocktails, Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

This drink was created by Kim (@Mrs_SNFoodies) from the ground up. She is usually involved in every drink recipe that we publish but she took this one to a whole new level of perfection. I probably tasted about nine different variations as she experimented with different spirits. I really think that the final ingredients selected […]

Craft Cocktail Recipe: #030313 Asombroso Tequila, Blackberry & Meyer Lemon

On March 3, 2013, in Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

One of my favorite things to do is look around the kitchen at the fresh ingredients available to me and think, “what would make a great cocktail?”. Doesn’t everyone think that way? This cocktail was inspired by blackberries, basil from our garden and Meyer lemons from Frieda’s Produce. I did not want to overwhelm the […]

We recently were introduced to the glorious Sumo Tangerine, a baseball sized, easy to peel juicy ball of sweet goodness. Thank you Jason Quinn (Chef/Owner PlayGround DTSA). We ran out picked some up and I just had to make a cocktail. After doing a little research on different drink combinations I finally thought of this: […]

Craft Cocktail Recipe: #012013 Blood Orange Margarita

On January 20, 2013, in Craft Cocktail Recipes, by satnightfoodies

This recipe is one of the easiest and best margaritas I think I make.  I think you will find this is a good all around margarita. Also I never add salt as I have noticed that it can take away from the freshness of the cocktail. INGREDIENTS: 3oz Patron Silver Tequila (Or opt for an […]
