The Sugar Free Special Relationship

The Sugar Free Special Relationship is based on the Conference, according to it’s creator.  The Special Relationship was created by the kindred cocktails user endless_optimism, though we are uncertain as to who this user really is, or if they have a twitter account (we couldn’t find one).

The first thing you’ll notice about this recipe is that it seems to have just about everything in it!  We were a little trepidatious at first, blending so many bold whiskey flavors (rye, bourbon and scotch!) with apple brandy and bitters.  How would all those strong flavors mesh, and wouldn’t it be exceedingly strong?

Sugar Free Carolina Julep

The Sugar Free Carolina Julep has many similarities with the Prescription (Mint) Julep that we’ve reported on previously.  However, while the mint, rye, and syrup are the same, this particular drink substitutes the cognac with an apple brandy.

The Sugar Free Gold Baron

The Sugar Free Gold Baron has been adapted from the original cocktail as invented by Thomas Waugh over at Death + Co., in NYC.  Check out their site as they have several recipes listed on it as well as some handy hints on cocktail preparation.

We found the recipe over at kindredcocktails.com.

Sugar Free Hawaiian Room

The Sugar Free Hawaiian Room is a wonderfully fruity and delicious cocktail akin to a Pina Colada, but without the coconut.  It is a lot less time consuming to make, though!

The original version of the Sugar Free Hawaiian Room was originally published in Ted Saucier’s Bottom’s Up, back in 1951.  We, of course, put our scientists to work in the MDR Labs to transfer this juicy cocktail into a sugar free dream.Sugar Free Hawaiian Room

Sugar Free Pink Lady

The Sugar Free Pink Lady is an old, old cocktail.  It may even predate the 1920’s!  This particular adaptation came from a delightful book, Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh, whom many know as Dr. Cocktail.  I greatly enjoy this book, as not only does it give some great old recipes, but it also gives history and context to many of them.

Sugar Free Pioneer Spirit

The Sugar Free Pioneer Spirit is another delicious cocktail that was adapted after we found it from our friends at Kindred Cocktails!  However, this flavorful drink was actually the baby of The Raines Law Room in NYC.  It is, as many drinks are, an adaptation of a classic.  In this case, it’s a new spin on the Old Fashioned.
