The theme for May is Bring on the Bourbon.
From Shaker & Spoon:
Our bridge to summer (aka the month of May) is within sight, and the time has finally come to throw open the windows, shout “Bring it on!” into the temperate wind, and allow a legendary spirit to shine.
Every month, Shaker & Spoon gives you three bartender recipes and all the syrups, garnishes, bitters and other supplies you need to make 12 drinks--everything but the alcohol. In May, Shaker & Spoon is celebrating bourbon! You'll get the recipes and supplies for Is it Summer Yet? by Sam Jimenez, The Caloosahatchee by Robert Sickler and Choco Facto by Christine Wiseman.
1. Is it Summer Yet? by Sam Jimenez
A self-admitted agave spirits guy first and foremost, Sam Jimenez is excited to take on bourbon and tap into its capabilities as a lively refresher. To help achieve this, he’s reached back to a 100-year-old American soda brand that’s recently been breathing new life into its legacy. His tall, easygoing sparkler poses the question, Is it Summer Yet? And the answer, despite what the calendar says, must be a resounding yes after a spritz of sage and a taste of the crushable combination of bourbon, strawberry-rhubarb syrup, and Reading Draft Honey Pear soda.
2. The Caloosahatchee by Robert Sickler
The citrus is certainly strong with Robert Sickler in this cocktail he’s invitingly labeled a “fun patio pounder.” Exactly as it should be with The Caloosahatchee, an homage to the southern Florida river whose banks he grew up on, surrounded by fresh fruit trees. His chosen bounty to accompany bourbon on a mound of crushed ice is orange two ways (in a sparkling soda and smoked orange bitters), along with a lemongrass-ginger-lemon syrup that brings dynamic depth to all that satisfying sunshine.
3. Choco Facto by Christine Wiseman
As far as modern hybridized holidays go, it’s hard to beat the years when the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo collide and inspire festive parties nicknamed Derby de Mayo. And, while a tequila julep indeed sounds nice, here’s an old fashioned that can certainly crowd-please like no other. Christine Wiseman’s Choco Facto stars bourbon side by side in harmony with spiced and nutty Mexican chocolate and barrel-aged coffee bitters for a cultural blend that’ll send your fiesta off to the races!
