Take The Bitter With The Sweet

Take The Bitter With The Sweet

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: the classic negroni, a cocktail complex in taste and simple in execution. Thought up by Count Camillo Negroni in a Florence cafe when he wanted a stronger take on his favorite Americano, the bitter-turned-sweet cocktail has withstood the test of time. Maybe we’re biased, but we prefer ours with an even heavier pour of gin.

To drink—
Negroni

To read—
Anyone that’s listened to the soulful crooning of James Blake or Marvin Gaye knows that the right song can have, uh, aphrodisiac qualities. Learn why mood music turns you on here.

To listen—
For some more subtly sexy tracks, turn to the classical soundtracks that fuel the romance in flicks like Call Me By Your Name and Under The Tuscan Sun.

Negroni

Ingredients

1.5 oz AMASS Dry Gin*
1 oz Campari
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
Orange Twist, for garnish

Recipe

Combine gin, campari, and sweet vermouth in a glass filled with ice. Stir gently to dilute and garnish with an orange twist

*Our recipe skews heavy on the gin, but feel free to pull it back to just 1 oz if you prefer a less spirit-centric sip.

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.

Let's Go 50/50

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 East Coast Sales Director and cocktail aficionado Robby Nelson pointed us toward the 50/50 martini, a classic cocktail beloved for its heavy pour of vermouth. If you prefer a zero-proof drink, try out the simple swap below.

Before—
50/50 Quarantini

During—
Maude’s burn candle is the perfect way to get things going. Burn the candle until partly liquid and extinguish the flame. Slowly pour the warm liquid onto skin or apply directly with your fingertips.

After—
Simmer down with nightcap, a playlist featuring the soulful sounds of Billie Holiday and Coralie Clement. Find the full playlist here.

50/50 Quarantini

Ingredients

1.5 oz AMASS Dry Gin
1.5 oz Dry Vermouth

Recipe

Combine ingredients and stir with ice (chopsticks work great!) for 20 seconds or until very cold. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist, olive, your mouth as you take a drink, etc.

If you aren't drinking…

Replace the gin with your favorite non-alcoholic spirit. Vermouth is notoriously tricky to swap, but Robby suggests using a white tea instead.

Hibiscus Sun

Hibiscus Sun

During the darkest, coldest months of the year, we find ourselves craving one thing most: sunshine. And while that particular commodity might be hard to come by, we found one that isn’t.

Enjoy as is or with a splash of AMASS Dry Gin or Vodka.

1 oz Hibiscus Agave Syrup

Sage of Enlightenment

Sage of Enlightenment

Whether you partake in Dry January or just prefer to keep your drinks booze-free, you should be able to sip on something a little more exciting than a seltzer and lime. That’s why we came up with a mocktail worthy of drinking well through January 31st.

And if you feel so inclined come February, feel free to add a splash of AMASS Dry Gin.

Sage of Enlightenment

Ingredients

2 oz Grapefruit Juice
1 oz Ginger & Sage Agave Syrup
Soda Water, splash
Ice

0.5 c Agave Syrup
2 1-inch Pieces of Ginger
0.25 c Sage Leaves

Recipe

Microplane 1 1-inch piece of ginger, add to pot with agave syrup, sage, and water. For the remaining 1 inch of ginger, cut it up and add it into the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, before simmering for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain mixture into a mason jar, adding the larger ginger chunks in. Let it cool to room temperature before using.

In a glass, add ginger and agave syrup, grapefruit juice and ice. Stir to combine. Top with soda water of choice and mix again.

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
0.5 oz Dry Vermouth
0.5 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
0.5 oz Dry Vermouth
0.5 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.
