Cocktail Navigation Guides
Bottle-by-Bottle Trail Guide
Here's a trail guide to help you get started mixing cocktails at home with the minimum number of bottles. It visits all of our favorite cocktails with no trail longer than seven bottles. Like all good trail guides it comes with a Trail Map and there's even a Chart of the Sours to help you choose a trail.
Recipe Chart for the Sours
There's a structure behind a good cocktail recipe. By listing the recipes for our favorite Sours by ingredient type we can trace the progression from Simple Sours all the way to Tiki concoctions by changing one type of ingredient at a time.
Here's a tour of the cocktail recipes on our top shelves. We give a little of the history of each drink and where it came from. The tour starts with the oldest and simplest of the drinks, the Whiskey Sour. By changing one ingredient at a time we try to show the evolution of the drink recipes and how they are connected. The Recipe Chart for the Sours illustrates these connections.
