My Hibs Don't Lie (Remix)

My Hibs Don't Lie (Remix)

One of our favorite summer sips, My Hibs Don’t Lie is a gin cocktail that gets by with a little help from a hibiscus honey syrup. Here, the cocktail gets the seltzer treatment, swapping that syrup with a splash of Surfer Rosso for the tart, refreshing taste you crave.

My Hibs Don’t Lie (Remix)

Ingredients
1 oz AMASS Dry Gin
½ oz Simple Syrup
½ oz Lemon juice
Surfer Rosso

Recipe
Shake Dry Gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice and strain into a wine glass on the rocks. Top with 2-3 oz of Surfer Rosso.

Faerie Collins

Faerie Collins

A botanical-forward and effervescent floral fizz.

Faerie Collins

Ingredients
1½ oz AMASS Dry Gin
½ oz Lemon Juice

Lemon Wheel, for garnish

Hibiscus Hot Toddy

Hibiscus Hot Toddy

Think of this toddy as a salve for weary souls. Warming, cozy, yet vibrant enough to transport you from the humdrum of your living room, this cup of hot honey and hibiscus gives us both the comfort and brightness we crave this winter.

Hibiscus Hot Toddy

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
¾ oz Lemon Juice
¾ oz Hibiscus Honey Syrup*
Lemon twist or wheel, for garnish

Recipe
Combine ingredients and add 3-4oz hot water. For best results, use ingredients at room temperature, or better yet, warm them up by putting them in a container and then putting that in a warm water bath for a few minutes before adding hot water. Garnish with a lemon twist or lemon wheel.

*For hibiscus honey syrup, make ½ cup strong hibiscus tea. Combine tea with one cup of honey in a pan over low heat. Stir until honey dissolves. The resulting mixture should be a deep purple-red color (and taste delicious!).

Pumpkin Spice Fizz

Pumpkin Spice Fizz

Compared to the all-night bar crawls and elaborate costume parties of autumns past, Halloween this year is looking a little more… understated. But that doesn’t mean we’re not celebrating at home. Put on that pumpkin costume you mistakenly bought on clearance last year, queue up Hocus Pocus, and get shaking for a cocktail that leans more sweet than spooky. This year has already been scary enough.

Pumpkin Spice Fizz

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
¾ oz Lemon Juice
¾ oz Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup*
1 Egg White
Pumpkin Spice, for garnish

Recipe
Add gin, lemon, simple syrup, and egg white to shake. Dry shake hard, without ice, for 10-15 seconds to emulsify egg white. Then add ice, shake hard for another 10 seconds, and strain into a Collins glass. Add ice, top with soda, and sprinkle pumpkin spice on top of the cocktail.

*Make strong tea with a pumpkin spice tea and use tea in place of water to make 1:1 simple syrup.

Your Guide to Summer Drinking

Your Guide to Summer Drinking

As we slip into summer this year, we’re craving refreshing, easy-to-make cocktails for shaking up poolside with our friends. Here's what we're sipping now through the dog days of summer.

Gimlet

You may not have to worry about scurvy anymore, but you should still drink gimlets.

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
1 oz fresh lime juice
¾ oz Simple Syrup
Lime Wheel, for garnish (optional)

Recipe
Shake vigorously with ice and strain into a coupe glass.

Take it up a notch with a Cucumber Gimlet, made with cucumber-infused AMASS Dry Gin:

• Cut up one medium cucumber.
• Put cucumber into a large pot or pitcher.
• Pour a bottle of AMASS into the container and stir.
• Let sit for an 1 hr +, tasting periodically after 30 minutes to see how intense the cucumber flavor is.

Or spice up your life with a Spicy Gimlet, made with red pepper simple syrup:

• Pour one cup sugar, one cup water, and one tablespoon of crushed red pepper into a pot.
• Turn on low heat and stir until sugar has dissolved, then turn off heat and cover.
• Let sit for 1hr+, tasting periodically to see how spicy it is. The longer you let it steep with the red pepper flakes, the spicier it will get.
• When it has reached your desired level of spice, you can strain out the red pepper flake using a fine mesh strainer (Note: it should be pretty spicy; remember, you’re only using less than an ounce per cocktail, so if you want the cocktail to be spicy the simple syrup will have to be spicy!)
• If it’s TOO spicy, use the red pepper simple syrup along with regular simple syrup or mix the two together.

Tom Collins

Tall, bubbly, gin-based cocktails like the Tom Collins should be everyone’s go-to for summer. After all, they are incredibly refreshing, much like that other effervescent, quintessential summer drink: the gin and tonic.

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
¾ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
¾ oz Simple Syrup
3 oz Club Soda
Lemon Wheel, for garnish

Recipe
Do a quick shake with a couple ice cubes or just put all ingredients directly into a Collins glass, add soda and ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Rickey

The Rickey is the original “healthy/skinny/low-sugar” cocktail. For your friend who can’t order a cup of black coffee without saying “not too sweet.”

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin or Botanic Vodka
¾ oz Fresh Lime Juice
¼ oz Simple Syrup, optional
4 oz Club Soda

Recipe
Build in Collins glass, add soda and ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Note: Traditionally a Gin Rickey doesn’t have any sugar, but I find a little bit of simple syrup helps add body and take just a bit of the edge off the tartness. This drink should still be tart and refreshing!

Summer Martini

Much like how you can never be overdressed or overeducated, you can also never go wrong drinking a martini. But sometimes you don’t want to wear a pantsuit, no matter how fierce you look. It’s summer, it’s hot. Put on something to keep you cool and sip on this to keep you fashionable.

Ingredients
1½ oz Cucumber-Infused AMASS Dry Gin
1½ oz Cocchi Americano
Cucumber Wheel, for garnish

Recipe
Stir and serve on the rocks for poolside sitting, or up for an evening patio dinner; just don’t forget to garnish with a cucumber wheel.

Batched Negroni

When I go to parties, I always bring a batched cocktail. People always get excited and say, “Oh, you’re making cocktails?!” And I say, “No, you’re pouring cocktails.” Batched cocktails are even more in-style right now, because you can stay safely distanced while drinking a delicious self-pour drink.

Ingredients
10 oz AMASS Dry Gin
7 oz Campari
7 oz Sweet Vermouth
Orange Twist, for garnish

Recipe
In an empty wine bottle (I know you have an empty wine bottle nearby, or you’re working on one), add the ingredients.Turn it upside down a few times to make sure it’s mixed. Don’t forget to seal it first! Use an old cork or a screw top bottle. Pour over the rocks and garnish with an orange twist, half orange wheel, or nothing. We’re in a pandemic, so drink.

Not feeling a negroni? Maybe batch that Summer Martini we just talked about!

Ingredients
12 oz Cucumber-Infused AMASS Dry Gin
12 oz Cocchi Americano

Recipe
Seal, turn upside down, and shake to make sure it’s mixed. Serve on the rocks with a cucumber wheel.

Cheers!

When Life Gives Us Limes

When Life Gives Us Limes

In our weekly series, we talk content and cocktails with maude, a modern sexual wellness brand based out of Brooklyn. Each Wednesday, we’ll offer recommended rituals for an intimate evening at home.

This week: our home bar supplies are running low, our brains are zonked, and we’re so deprived of human contact that we’ve started making small talk with our houseplants. Here’s what we’re doing to slow and savor our nights in.

Before—
Apply oil no. 1 to skin. Rub from face to toe to feel moisturized and soft all over, or drizzle in the tub for a luxurious soak.

During—
Skip the chit-chat and put on ‘Talk is cheap’ a feel-good playlist with the likes of Richard Swift and Chet Faker.

After—
You know what they saw about lemons and lemonade? We like to think the same is true for limes and gimlets. Take whatever limes your CSA box throws at you and turn them into these 3-ingredient wonders.

Gimlet

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
1 oz Lime Juice
¾ oz Simple Syrup

Recipe
Combine ingredients, shake vigorously with ice for 15 seconds, and strain into a coupe.

If you aren’t drinking:
1½ oz Lime Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup

Serve on the rocks with a splash of soda.

The Dirty Martini, 2 Ways

The Dirty Martini, 2 Ways

The martini. A classic cocktail with a seemingly never-ending list of variations. Dry or wet? Dirty or with a twist? With vodka or gin? 

We’re here to complicate matters even more by throwing yet another variation into the mix: the CPH martini. Below you’ll find the dirty martini you know and love along with this new iteration, which calls for pickled vegetable juice instead of the typical olive brine, so you can shake it up when you want a martini that leans more sour than salty.

Martinis are ruled by preference, so feel free to choose gin or vodka, go a little easy on the vermouth, and indulge in a few extra olives.

Classic Dirty Martini

Ingredients
3 oz AMASS Botanic Vodka or Dry Gin
½ oz Dry Vermouth
½ oz Olive Brine
3 Olives, for garnish

Recipe
Pour vodka/gin, vermouth, and olive brine into a mixing glass/cocktail shaker with ice and stir or shake, depending on your preference. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with 3 olives.

CPH Martini

Ingredients
3 oz AMASS Botanic Vodka or Dry Gin
½ oz Dry Vermouth
½ oz Pickled Vegetable Juice
Skewer of Pickled Vegetables, for garnish

Recipe
Pour vodka/gin, vermouth, and vegetable juice into a mixing glass/cocktail shaker with ice and stir or shake, depending on your preference. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a skewer of pickled vegetables.

Gin and Juice

Gin and Juice

Allow me to set a stage for you: it’s a Saturday night, you have some casual friends coming over (aka, people you are still trying to impress), and you just finished crafting the perfect playlist loaded with an impressive array of indie hits and ‘90s R&B gems (you’re a people-pleaser, after all).

So, what are you drinking?

You want something drinkable yet interesting. Something sweet and sour and fresh. Something that will make your guests pause after their first sip and ask, “What is in this?!”

“Rhubarb shrub,” you’ll say, because you are the kind of person who keeps rhubarb shrub on hand.

Here’s what else you’re going to need:

Gin and Juice

Ingredients
2 oz AMASS Dry Gin
1 oz Rhubarb Shrub
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
½ oz Lemon Juice
½ oz Sugar
Soda Water (optional)
Lemon Peel, for garnish

Recipe
In your tin, add all ingredients. For sugar, you can choose to use a variation of honey syrup versus simple syrup. Add 5-6 ice cubes to your tin and shake firmly. Add fresh ice to your cocktail glass.

Using your Hawthorne strainer, strain onto fresh ice. Optional—add a light amount of soda water to the top to cut the juice and add a little fizz.
