Ginger Syrup Recipe - Imbibe Magazine

 

Ginger Syrup
"This syrup from Betty Fraser and Denise DeCarlo, owners of Grub in Hollywood, Calif., is fantastic in cocktails, such as the Sleepyhead, but it also makes an out-of-this-world ginger ale. To make ginger ale, simply fill an ice-filled glass a t…

Leopold's Peach

December 30, 2009
Bandit Review: I am not one to usually associate fruit with my whiskey; however, I can be wrong.  One might stop and ask, "How do they cram so much peach flavor into this bottle and still have room for whiskey" after drinking from this bottle.  This is a great whiskey for a…

High West Rendezvous Rye Whiskey is from Utha!

December 17, 2009

 Whiskeybros.com Review::  
       " Rendezvous Rye is a blend of a 6 year old with 95% rye, and a 17 year-old that's 80% Rye. This would put it at one of the highest rye contents on the market, possible second only to Old Potrero's 100% (which if you ask me, is just a bit much).

John Powers

December 16, 2009
Bandit Review:  I was extremely surprised to find that it is really hard to find a review of Powers Irish whiskey. I think that this shows how over looked this whiskey is in the states and most of the world outside of Ireland. Usually, when you type most popular whiskeys into Google you are over whe…

Slane Castle

December 15, 2009

Bandit Review:

 My staff has gone nuts over this Irish whiskey. Slane Castle has all the smoothness of a southern Irish whiskey, with hints of vanilla and honey suckle. However, there is a hint of the spiciness and light smoke of Northern Irish whiskeys, take Bushmills for example. Every time you go …

Strength: 43% ABV
Appearance: Deep amber gold.
Nose: Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweet…

Bandit Review:













"Strength:43% ABV
Appearance:Pale straw.
Nose:Subdued, citric fruitiness; a whiff of bath oil and dentist's mouthwash. A fresh and appetising nose, with little or no trace of smoke. A little water raises almond oil and old-fashioned oilskins; still a fresh fruitiness (lychees?), a trace …
