A Summery Saturday Cocktail

20120714-064759.jpg I have been looking for ways to use the Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. small batch tonic we sell at Watson Kennedy other than for a G & T. I think I found a winner. This is a recipe from the fabulous Husk restaurant in Charleston, by the talented mixologist Dan Latimer.

The Tequila Sunset
Over ice pour 2 ounces anejo tequila. Add 3/4 ounces of Jack Rudy tonic, and 3 drops of grapefruit bitters. Add fresh grapefruit juice and then top with soda. Summer in a glass.

Happy Bastille Day too!



Jack Rudy Cocktail Co.

20120628-061919.jpg Small batch tonic, now that has a nice ring to it. New to the shelves at Watson Kennedy, and just in time for Summer g&t’s, is Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. small batch tonic. This is not your ordinary somewhat bitter tonic. This is made with lemongrass and orange peel, along with quinine, to give the mixture a very herbaceous-ness flavor. I made TPS one last night, and he said it has a very ‘green’ flavor to it. Super refreshing. And once again, I am smitten with the bottle and packaging. These fellows from Charleston have come up with a winner–what is in the bottle is as good as what is on the outside.
