ETROG LIQUEUR SUKKAH HILL SPIRITS REVIEW

Citrus, so after I had Besamim Liqueur, I moved on to another product from Sukkah Hill Spirits, ETROG Liqueur. ETROG Liqueur is a citrus liqueur. Very bright and full of flavor without being too sweet, again I must say it is perfectly balanced. After a few drinks, I said this would be great with vodka, and we mixed it over ice, then strained it into a martini glass making a very citrus yet not sweet (like a lemon drop martini) cocktail that was delicious.

Looking at the website I learned Etrog is a lightly sweet citrus liqueur featuring the aroma of citrus blossoms. An Etrog is an ancient heirloom citrus fruit grown in only a handful of orchards worldwide. Bottled at 76 proof (36% alc/vol), Etrog is excellent chilled, over ice or as a base for bright strong cocktails. On the Besamim website I did find a Cocktail Recipe page for some great drink ideas. It has won many Gold Medals, from SIP Awards, Craft Competition, Tastings… I purchased two bottles from Mission Wine & Spirits liquor store that will ship it right to your house.

AnestasiA Vodka An Award Winning Spirit

AnestasiA Vodka Review

AnestasiA Vodka is and award winning spirit, it’s the essence of two all-natural, all-American ingredients. First is the sweet corn sourced from northwestern farms, and second is the exceptionally pure water of the Cascade Mountains. The waters of this range flow through riverbeds of lava rock, and thereby avoid picking the sediment—metallic salts such as magnesium and calcium—present in most water sources. In fact, our waters contain 90% less of these compounds than your average drinking water. This makes our water remarkably ‘soft’, and results in Anestasia vodka’s naturally derived purity.

Once harvested, our corn grains are mixed with fermenting sugars and yeast—then distilled five times. This distillate is then blended down with our uniquely pure water before being filtered a further five times through crushed lava rock, neutral charcoal, and Arkansas-derived quartz crystal. This filtration process removes any remaining impurities, often including the congeners which can cause hangovers. The final result is fresh, easy-to-drink vodka that is both lightly weighted and very smooth.

Our whole process, from the grains we use to the naturally purified water, is an embodiment of the American artisan experience. This vodka serves as an homage to a longstanding American tradition—the domestic creation of handcrafted quality—as well as a beacon for a new generation of innovative American luxury.

AnestasiA Vodka was created to demonstrate that luxury spirits can be crafted in the United States. In 2007, founder Yuliya Mamontova started with the singular goal of producing the best vodka possible. Growing up in a European family of vodka producers, Yuliya learned firsthand the distillation, fermentation, and packaging expertise passed from generation to generation. In homage to her family’s traditions, AnestasiA is produced in small batches by skilled artisans using select all natural ingredients. We believe in domestic craftsmanship and ingenuity.

Our process begins in Bend, Oregon, handcrafted on a 24-acre farm. Knowing how important water is to the vodka distillation process and ultimately to the taste of a finished product, as vodka is 60% water, we chose to produce our vodka in the Northwest. Their water sources are consistently clean, and those that flow from Bend’s Cascade Mountains, exceptionally pure. The unusually low concentration of calcium carbonate in the region’s water supply ensures our vodka has a smooth, silk-like finish, and can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks. Our vodka purity embodies the pristine wilderness that surrounds our distillery.

We are a family-owned and family-operated business. Our commitment to superior taste, domestic production, and modern sustainability remains unwavering as we continue to focus our efforts on the quality of our product and work to rekindle the American spirit of producing luxury goods domestically.

Bartending basics made fun and easy, with “how to” mix classic, popular and exotic cocktails. Published in 2011 this book continues to gain momentum year after year.

About The Author, Will Elger a bartender for over two decades has turned bartending into more than just a career. Working in many different venues the goal has always been to make sure everyone has a drink. As cocktails have moved more to mixology or molecular mixology it seems like a longer wait at the bar to get a drink.

Barefoot Sweet Red Wine

Barefoot Sweet Red Wine Review

Get Barefoot, Wine and have a great time, with Barefoot Sweet Red Wine, highly recommended to me. So I had to give it a try, and what do I think, Fun Wine! We were barbecuing and there was a little of everything to eat and drink, we opened a bottle of Barefoot Sweet Red Wine and it was a hit.

I looked it up, on their site they recommend it chilled, chill out wine! Tastes, rip, explosive flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and luscious cherry. Time to uncork, summer, summer, summertime, right about that, it is sweet, light and fruity perfect for summer. Barefoot recommends pairing Barefoot Sweet Red Wine with grilled veggies, marinated steaks and BBQ.

Price – $6.99 – 750mL Bottle, it is sweet, but it also says clearly on the label Sweet Red Wine. I don’t usually drink sweet but I did like it, I usually recommend wine with food, yet you can drink this straight. Also we did try making a Barefoot Sweet Red Wine Wine Cooler (s) (tall Collins glass with ice, fill half way with Barefoot Sweet Red Wine and the other half with 7-Up, garnish with a cherry). We also made Barefoot Sweet Red Wine Wine Spritzer (s) (tall Collins glass with ice, fill half way with Barefoot Sweet Red Wine and the other half with club soda, garnish with a lemon twist). Super refreshing and a whole lot of fun, for the price you can’t beat it!
