Cocktail Culture: Upgrade Your Manhattan With This Maple Concoction


Cozy up to this fall-inspired cocktail

We love the brisk hit of cold air that Fall brings to our cocktail palette. A welcome to even more cocktails that tend to favor spirits from the dark side, or imbibing doses of scotch and bourbon neat just gives us the warm and fuzzies… literally. To highlight these spirited tastes of the Fall, we hooked up with Fado Irish Pub in Buckhead to sample some of their new seasonally-inspired cocktails that you can make at right home for snuggly drinking in front of the fire. Stay toasty y’all.


The Lovelady aka Hanky Panky


Get acquainted with this sexy cocktail

One of Atlanta’s newest hidden gems is Ink and Elm located in Emory Village. By far one of the most intriguing and sexiest restaurants I’ve every been to, the design aesthetic blends the tenants of Druid Hills architect Frederick Law Olmsted (who also planned and developed Central Park in NYC).

Holiday Cocktail Guide 2012

Tis the season…to be drinking

For most, the holiday season can be placed in one of two categories: pure enjoyment and utter annoyance. Being a Scrooge and coming from the school of thought of the latter, I try to keep some extra holiday cheer on hand to get me through the tough times.


Things May Get Wickedly Naughty This Halloween

This is one Wicked Vixen…

Ok. So you’ve got your Halloween costume all set. Guys, you’ve grown out your beard all month in preparation to be Wolverine…or maybe Alan from The Hangover. Ladies, you’ve gone to great lengths to make a “sexy” version of every profession and monster known to man. You deserve a great Halloween-inspired cocktail. And we’ve got just the trick…or treat using one of our favorite new vodkas, Vixen Vodka. Boo-yah!


Wake Up to Wild Turkey American Honey

Bourbon. It’s what’s for…breakfast?

We love bourbon here at EDR. This is nothing new. So while perusing Twitter recently, I came across a tweet from our friends at Wild Turkey asking, “How do you prefer your bourbon? In cocktails or on the rocks?” Delightfully retweeting that we love it both ways, it got me thinking about the new renaissance of cocktails using bourbon.


Celebrate Sailor Jerry Day by Looking ‘Forward to the Past’

Ahoy Matey! June 12th is Sailor Jerry Day!

You may want to brush up on your sailor speak, because June 12th is ‘Sailor Jerry Day’. What is Sailor Jerry Day you might ask? It is the day William Grant & Sons takes to commemorate the life and times of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins, the hard-living Navy tattoo artist for which its popular 92 proof rum is inspired upon.
