The new Esquire & Jefferson’s Manhattan: Barrel Finished Cocktail was conceptualized in 2013 by Esquire‘s Editor-in-Chief David Granger and Jefferson’s Bourbon founder Trey Zoeller, in an effort to provide bourbon enthusiasts with a barrel-finished bottled cocktail that enhances the experience of enjoying a classic.

The finished product is comprised of six-year-old bourbon – 125 proof cut down to 82.3 – both sweet and dry vermouth, and barrel-aged, spiced cherry bitters. Enjoy it as you would any Manhattan: on the rocks or stirred and strained over ice.

THROWBACK THURSDAY COCKTAILS PRESENTS: Moscow Mule (a.k.a Vodka Buck)

sfmule2-1

The Moscow Mule, also known as a “Vodka buck”, is made with a high quality vodka, a spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime. It is usually served in a copper mug…

Now, there are ALOT of tales behind the history of this fashionably refreshing drink and how it came to be, but here’s what I got after reading way too many articles on it…

Back in the early 1940′s, John G. Martin of G.F. Heublein Brothers, Inc.,  “Jack” Morgan President of Cock ‘n’ Bull Products (which produced ginger beer) and proprietor of the Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant on Sunset Boulevard in LA (catering to lots of celebs) and Rudolph Kunett, president of the Pierre Smirnoff, Heublein’s vodka division, were in a bar knocking ‘em back. According to Wikipedia, John Martin had problems peddling his Russian vodka in an American market. Jack Morgan says, “Hey let’s put your vodka with my ginger beer over a crap ton of ice and squeeze in some citrus.” Thus the Moscow Mule was born.

How the mug came to be? Martin, who went around the country to sell Smirnoff Vodka and popularize the Moscow Mule, asked bartenders to pose with any copper mug they had in house and a bottle of Smirnoff. He took two photos, leaving one with the bartender to display, and the other to be put into a collection to be used as proof to the next bar that Martin visited of the popularity of the Moscow Mule.

So here’s what we got, a few liquor distributors met by fate, had a few, got inspired and combined their products. “Put that in one of them there mugs!” Done.

But seriously, all I know is that this drink is freakishly refreshing, and why do I love this copper mug so much? I need a  set, I’m just saying. (Did I mention we sell ALL of these products the Randall’s Jefferson store? YES, the mugs too!!)

Anywho, here’s how you make it…

2 oz Vodka

4-6 oz Ginger beer,

Splash of lime juice

Half a lime

Combine vodka and ginger beer in a copper mug or highball glass filled with ice. Splash lime juice, stir gently and garnish with a lime slice. Serve and ENJOY!

Definitely beats the heat, and oh boy St. Louis, is the heat on its way or what?!?!

Thank you Wikipedia, Huffington Post, and Epicurious for all the deets.

See you next week!

HOP HUNTER® IPA

Intense wet hop flavor year round.

Hop Hunter IPA harnesses the complex flavors of just-picked hops through an all-new method of steam distilling wet hops before they even leave the fields. This revolutionary technique captures and intensifies the natural flavors, creating a unique and intensely aromatic beer.
