A Mocktail To Take The Edge Off Dry January

Ahhhh January….the time of year when liquor stores go from being mobbed at the holidays to completely DEAD in the new year. Happy 2021 by the way! So yes we know it’s a new year and people make resolutions, practicing dry January, all that jazz. So we’ve adapted here at PSW&S to offer you a fun way to have a cocktail without the booze, but it will still take the edge off the day a little. How are we going to do that you ask? By giving you the recipe for an Otto’s CBD cider cocktail. Otto’s CBD cider is from Mirth...

A Winter Paloma

I guess we need to face the facts, winter is here. We’ve been lucky this fall with some pretty mild weather. However the gusty winds & frigid temperature drop have slapped us hard to wake us up. Time to start thinking about cocktails that will make us feel all toasty as we welcome the winter wonderland that’s upon us. When you think of winter holiday flavors, I’m sure cranberry or pomegranate come to mind. These fruits are used in many recipes simply because they are in season during this time, especially pomegranates as...

One More Round of Summer

Hello November, the month where we barrel towards the holiday season and mentally prepare for the snowy, cold winter. Sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas though, as she has this week by providing us with just a little more summer weather before we plunge into the depths of frigid temps. Guess what goes well with nice weather? Duh, a perfectly crafted cocktail. In honor of the mild temps, we celebrate this week with a drink from the cocktail book Shake  by Eric Prum and Josh Williams, from which I’ve published recipes from...

‘Tis the Season for Pumpkin Potions

It’s almost Halloween folks, and we are wrapping up pumpkin season here in the liquor world. While I’m not a big pumpkin beverage fan, there are plenty of people who are and are sad when the season winds down. That’s where this drink recipe comes in, as long as you’ve hoarded your pumpkin beer like many do! Halloween deserves a proper drink, the Pumpkin Mama is the answer. Being the pumpkin beer season, I went looking for drink recipes that involved the beverage. A great resource was Shipyard Brewing’s website,...

Time to Spice Up Your Life

Ginger. Pear. Cinnamon. Should I go on? These flavors just scream, “HI IT’S FALL!” The crispness to the air has arrived, and with that we need to kick our autumn cocktail making into high gear. So why not start by spicing up a trendy cocktail? Folks, let me introduce you to the spiced pear Moscow mule. One of my favorite restaurants makes a spiced sangria during the fall. A little over a year ago I learned how to make the spiced pear vodka and spiced simple syrup that goes into the drink. Every time I make it, I end up with...

Let’s Sloe It Down

Well here we are, it’s October 2020. We are in the final stretch of this crazy year. If you are like me, cocktail making has helped take the edge off of the harshness of the 2020 reality. As you can tell from our posts, we’ve been having fun experimenting and sharing new cocktail recipes with our beloved customers. This cocktail recipe puts a little twist on an old classic, the sloe gin fizz. What is sloe gin you ask? Well it’s a creation by the British that takes sloe berries and soaks them in a high-proof gin, along with a...

What If Bees Liked Bourbon & Beer?

I can’t believe summer is over. Where did it go? 2020 definitely provided a different kind of summer, but we made it and here we are – it’s officially fall. Know what a great fall liquor is? It’s bourbon. A glass of a great bourbon will definitely take the chill out of your bones. However, I’m a lover of summer and not ready to dive right into fall yet. So to ease into it, I found another beer cocktail that will gently guide us into the new season. You know who also loves summer? The bees! With everything in...

A New Way to Margarita

A New Way to Margarita

Unless you completely hate tequila (and if you do, we can’t be friends) then you’ve probably at some point had a margarita. Margaritas remind us of warm weather, fun in the sun with friends, and tropical getaways. I mean, it’s practically a vacation in a glass! A few years ago, when spiked seltzers were just becoming popular thanks to Bon & Viv, which was then really the ONLY spiked seltzer, I came upon a recipe on their website making a margarita using their lime spiked seltzer. My mind was blown. Seltzer in a...
