The Tony

The Tony

In celebration of Anthony Bourdain We present

“The Tony”.

Thought, contemplation and tribute go into this recipe:

-1/2 pound of hot peppers from as many continents that you can find

-Hand roast these peppers over an open flame

-Put them into a mason jar, cover with Batiste Rhum Silver & let sit for 3 days

-On the seventh day after roasting these peppers,  prepare a “Batiste Last Word” and add the pepper tincture to your taste.

Here then is a no nonsense cocktail that is hot roasted and has the last word. There is always peace at the end.

Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini

Our favorite mashup beverage.  We love espresso, we love martini's.  We believe in these two excellent concoctions in the same glass, plus a little cream and sugar!   As you can probably guess... we prefer Batiste Rhum to that stuff made from potatoes or corn (or whatever it's made of)... and we trust you will too.

Aviation

Aviation

The AVIATION is an evolution (or BATISTIZATION) of this classic gin cocktail. BATISTE combines beautifully with Maraschino liqueur and citrus, so naturally, the Aviation becomes a delicious addition to our growing list of favorites. We prefer the BATISTE Aviation served up in a chilled coupe. If you haven't already, go now and get real maraschino cherries, and take those bright red things away and never speak of them again. Now that you are in a good place mentally and emotionally...lets begin.

Mojito

Mojito

The BATISTE MOJITO is another variation on the Daiquiri, plus a little fresh mint.  Be kind to the mint, no need to over muddle.  A slap of the leaves is all it takes.  This is a light refreshing drink, not a mint salad in a glass.

Negroni

Negroni

In 1919, a down-on-his-luck Count Negroni asked for something stronger added to his favorite cocktail, the Americano.  This instantly catapulted him into the ranks of culinary history-makers like Caesar and The Earl of Sandwich.  Luckily, you don't have to be a Count, Earl, or Roman Emperor to enjoy our Batiste version.

Punch

Punch

Batiste starts on the Caribbean island of Marie Galante, and this Island Punch is our nod to a traditional island-libation, the Ti Punch.  The consistent features are: a small (or large) tumbler, Rhum, lime and sugar. Some grind lime with sugar and add a shot of Rhum, mix and drink. Others use sugar syrup, some add ice. Others eat the lime, throw sugar at each other and then drink from the bottle (that often happens much later and when all the nice people have gone home).

Hemmingway

Hemmingway

A superb variation on a daiquiri but a drink that folks who are not allowed to have grapefruit should avoid. The key to this drink is the correct relationship of sweet and sour. As with most of our drinks that are served up, we like the chilled coupe.

French 75

French 75

Originally named after a French 75mm cannon, this classic cocktail packs enough punch to rival the French artillery.  Also a favorite of the locals at Rick's Cafe in the movie "Casablanca", this Batiste version will have you asking your bartender to "Play it again!"
