In gaelic, uisce betha, or 'water of life' was used to describe such drinks in the Middle Ages. This malted grain whiskey must be produced on the island of Ireland.
A whiskey distilled from a grain mash that contains at least 51% rye, a grass and member of the wheat tribe 'Triticeae.'
An Italian amaro made with saffron, anise, clove, gentian, orange peel and violet; 32% ABV.
The most common fruit juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; pure citric acid. Lemon juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain into a fancy fizz glass. #shake #straight
