Master of Cocktails - The Paloma

Master of Cocktails The Paloma

It's #MasterofCocktails time again folks! This week we're putting together a supremely refreshing drink – one which you absolutely must try if you haven't already.

A long drink made with tequila and grapefruit, god only knows why this isn't more widely available to be honest. This week we'll be making a Paloma. It's a Mexican number that translates as the 'dove', all you really need to know though is that you want one. They're yummy.

Master of Cocktails - Margarita

Master of Cocktails Margarita

By heck! It’s nearly Christmas – better make some Margaritas!

Yep, something like that...

So, I’m sure you’ll all be familiar with this classic tequila cocktail, but it’s one that’s so often poorly made. Well, we’ve had quite enough of that. For last night’s #MasterofCocktails recipe we decided to tackle the problem once and for all!

There are a couple of things to consider and to take care of in advance, but after that it's a nice simple build.

Gather round now, herein lies a Christmas Gift from Benny Blanco!

Adiós, Tequila. ¡Hola, Mezcal!

by Angus     10. December 2012 15:19

It seems most countries have a national drink – these are the kind of bottles that are bought on holiday and go dusty in the cupboard only to be pulled out for drinking games at parties years later. One of the most iconic national drinks of all time is of course Tequila.

Tequila, as we all know, has a bad reputation as being that party drink, that led to that night, and many have avoided exploring this infamous spirit unless forced to by a friend who is swaying on the spot with a party hat on his head screaming, "SHOT!". However, if this is the case, Tequila's rustic cousin Mezcal should pique your interest. "What is a Mezcal?" I hear you ask. Well take a seat and I will tell you a story.

Ocho Curado Tequila

by Vincent L     6. March 2012 17:36

¡Atención, por favor!;  something amazing has just happened in the wonderful world of tequila, something so momentous you are simply going to have to cancel that vitally important life-saving heart surgery and give this announcement your full, undivided concentration.

Leading tequila producer Ocho has devised a new way of producing Mexico’s favourite way of getting tourists to star in humiliating photographs featuring giant sombreros. It’s called Ocho Curado and Master of Malt has got the first bottles to hit the UK, and as yet we’re the sole retailer to hold any.  More...

New Product entitled… erm… “Brown Drink”

by Ben Ellefsen     3. August 2011 15:43

So – we’ve been doing our Drinks by the Dram whisky sample service for almost a year now, and in that time have decanted ‘loads’ of 700ml bottles into 30ml samples.
 
700 divided by 30 is 690, so even if one is slightly generous with the 30ml measure, there’s still going to be a little drop or two left over.
 
My original plan (and I thought it was a darned good one) was to save all of this up, and make some awesome cocktails at the staff Christmas party, or maybe do something at the directors’ joint birthday party, but it turns out that “a little drop or two” multiplied by “loads” is about 37 full-sized bottles-worth.
 
Even we aren’t that thirsty. More...
