Master of Cocktails - The Old Pal

Master of Cocktails The Old pal

Right then - everyone about ready for a #MasterofCocktails?

This evening we're going to make an oft-overlooked drink, the 'Old Pal'. The use of Dry vermouth lends this drink a light and very 'aperitiffy' (definitely not a word) character which makes it a wonderful springtime drink.

We're going to start off by summoning up the energy to get off the sofa and walk over to the bar.

Master of Cocktails - The Bobby Burns

Master of Cocktails The Bobby Burns

For #MasterofCocktails this week we made a twist on the Rob Roy (which I've decided on balance might be a rubbish drink). It's called a 'Bobby Burns' - and uses a healthy slug of Bénédictine to give the whisky and vermouth a much-needed lift.

It's obviously named after the Scottish Bard, Robert Burns, but in the week that Lynyrd Skynyrd's original drummer Bob Burns tragically died it seems a fitting tribute to him as well.

So, let's get to it...

Master of Malt Is Closing Down - Free Shipping Until Midday Today

by Master of Malt     1. April 2015 09:00

Sad Employee

As some of you may have realised, the sudden and shocking news that Master of Malt was closing its doors did indeed have something to do with the fact that it was April 1st…

The truth is, as we celebrate our 30th anniversary this year, Master of Malt is stronger than ever. A huge thank you to all our customers and here's to another thirty hugely successful years!

Master of Cocktails - IL Beetz

by Ben Ellefsen     30. March 2015 09:45

Master of Cocktails IL Beetz

Right everyone - ready for another instalment of #MasterofCocktails? This week's is pretty awesome, and has a pretty awesome name too - IL Beetz. I'll explain the reasoning behind that later...

We're putting together this drink using FEW Spirits American Gin - super-rich and 'whisky-like'. It's more than enough to stand up to the rich, roots-y quality of the Beetroot juice we're using.

So - to business.

St. Patrick's Day in Ireland with Jameson!

by Jake Mountain     27. March 2015 09:00

Hello Dublin Jameson St Patricks Day Live

It was 11am in Gatwick airport on Saturday 14th March. The plane taking a small drinks press contingent over to Ireland for Jameson's extended #HelloDublin St. Patrick's Day celebrations was due to leave in just over an hour from Heathrow. Had I made a terrible mistake?

In fact, I'd just arrived back from a holiday and had always known I couldn't make that flight, just as I now knew all I'd be seeing of blighty was Gatwick airport itself. My flight to Cork was later, and until then I'd simply be pretending I was Tom Hanks in The Terminal. (Although there were no Catherine Zeta-Jones love interest developments to speak of.)

Master of Cocktails - Bijou Cocktail

Master of Cocktails Bijou Cocktail

Right then Ladies and Gentlemen - it's time for another #MasterofCocktails. Excited? Oh yes.

This week we're making a Chartreuse-heavy 'Bijou Cocktail' recipe, though we're making it with slightly less Green Chartreuse as to not overwhelm the drink.

'Bijou' of course, is French for 'Jewel', and the cocktail's name comes from the colours of precious jewels (emerald, diamond and ruby) being similar to the colour of the ingredients (Chartreuse, Gin and Vermouth).

Master of Cocktails - Pink Gin

by Ben Ellefsen     16. March 2015 08:30

Master of Cocktails Pink Gin

Well greetings one and all. Ready for another installment of #MasterofCocktails? Good then.

This week's is a very, very straightforward drink, but one that seems to have fallen somewhat out of favour recently. We're making a Pink Gin recipe. Probably one of the very first Gin cocktails?

The original recipe here calls for simply gin and bitters, served at room temperature, in a tumbler. Not that, obviously.
