Summer Peach Old Fashioned
We love an Old Fashioned, but it often feels like a cold-weather drink. Enter - peaches. Or really any summer stone fruit. This is so simple and so delicious on a balmy summer day.
We've offered Runamok Cocktail Syrups for a few years now because they do such a good job at creating delicious, all natural flavor infusions. Enjoy the smoked version or regular, depending on your preference. Hello campfire vibes!
Southwest Bloody Mary
Our 'Americas' selection of blends + rubs is incredibly diverse, between barbecues rubs + seafood seasonings with various degrees of latin influence. It can make choosing what to use when an exciting challenge. To highlight the diversity of these blends, I love using them for anything outside the jar suggestions. Our Southwest Seasoning has made flavorful beans, lobster rolls with a kick, and even a delicious take on meatloaf. Today, it's taking a turn at the bar for a Southwestern Bloody Mary. Are you as excited as I am? Tequila or Gin? Celery Seed or Sriracha Salt? After a mostly successful dry January, I played around with a few combos and landed on a favorite. I'd love to hear your tweaks + successes in SKORDO Cooks!
Between dry January and a frigid winter, I have been reaching towards a mug of tea at least two times a day. While we rarely carry teas in the shops, we do always have our collection of herbs + spices that can be quickly steeped into a flavorful tea. Whether you enjoy these recipes as is, or use them to upgrade a basic black tea, they're certain to warm you up.
The perfect tequila free margarita brought to you by the the team at Vena's Fizz House. We're a big fan of this spicy, sweet and citrusy pick me up.
Lavender Lemon Fizz
A mock-tail filled with sweet florals by the team at Vena's Fizz House. We love it as is, or dressed up with gin.
Take a trip to the islands with the help of this fizzy, fruity mock-tail by Vena's Fizz House. We love the tart undertones that elevate this juicy drink.
Cinnamon + Vanilla Maple Espresso Martini with Toasted Marshmallow
Espresso Martinis are one of those special drinks we often get out at a restaurant, but why not make them at home! They're easy to make and perfect for a New Year's Eve celebration.
Peppermint Mocha Syrup for Coffee + More!
I have never been one who relies on coffee to get through my day, but I reach for it when I need a pick-me-up or for seasonal flavors that I just can't resist. I make my best efforts to support local in anyway I can, but Starbucks has mastered the Peppermint Mocha drinks so well I have a hard time saying no. For the sake of money-saving + gift-giving, I wanted to try my hand at a replica syrup for at home coffee making (or hot cocoa seasoning!). This looks dreamy bottled up in our apothecary bottles, and the pourer is extra convenient for mess free use.
Lemon Verbena Hot Toddy
Lemon Verbena is one of my favorite herbs but I see it more often in candles + soaps than I do food. When Runamok launched Lemon Verbena Honey, I couldn't wait to get a taste. It brings gentle lemon-y flavor without introducing any acid or sour notes. Sore throat or cold day, this drink is the cure.
Maple Ginger Mule
We are always so excited to see what Runamok is coming up with. First the delicious infused maple syrups, then the Maple Old Fashioned Syrup, and now a Maple Ginger Mule?! This is a delicious addition to your holiday parties, a quick pour + top with club soda makes you a balanced cocktail, perfect for cheers-ing all season long.
Spiked Mulled Cider
Our Mulling Party! recipe kit is delicious anytime of year, but incredibly popular in these colder months. We truly can't keep it on the shelves, and love playing with new ways to use it. Last year we mulled wine, and used the remainder to poach pears for a galette. This time, we're simply mulling cider + adding bourbon for the grownups. I'd highly recommend welcoming your guests with a warm mug of this over the holidays!
BOOzy Gin + Pomegranate Cocktail
Use Royal Rose Blackberry Simple Syrup and SKORDO Posy Sea Salt to achieve this spooky sipper.
