Valentines / Mardi Gras / Mid February Update!

Been a ‘slow’ couple weeks (not for sales, but for production — we had no money to buy ingredients or supplies), but we’re gradually getting the wheels turning again here. We’ve gotten the first few payments from ABC, so we’re able to buy more stuff to make Krupnikas! And that’s good news for everyone.

Oh, and Valentines day is almost here.

Valentines!

You make a great couple.

Yea, we didn’t remember either. Don’t worry, it’s not too late to impress that special someone. Just in case you’re not the roses, chocolate, or um… giant teddy bear kind of person, we’ve got some suggestions. And they’re simple suggestions. You could make these with mittens on. I don’t know why you would, but you could.

Here’s a few cocktails that might help you warm up your night:

The Blind Date

Named as such because I haven’t tried it, but I am curious and imagine it could be good.  

1 oz Krupnikas

1 oz Campari

2 oz Club Soda

Combine ingredients over ice and pour into a rocks glass to mix.

Berry Patch

1.5 oz Krupnikas

1 oz Rye Whiskey

.5 oz Chambord

Mix ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake three or four times and strain into a martini glass. Add either cherries or pomegranate seeds.

Pucker Up

1.5 oz Krupnikas

.5 oz Grenadine

1 oz sour mix

1 oz club soda

Mix ingredients in a shaker, invert once and serve on the rocks with a twist of lime. For a less sugary cocktail, substitute .5 oz of lime juice for the sour mix.

See also our “Superbowl Cocktails” as those are equally delicious, and are pretty much all-purpose cocktails as well.
