Somehow, the Sugar Free Old Fashioned Cocktail escaped our notice! While the MDR Labs have been sampling this one for some time, we’ve neglected to share our experience!
The Sugar Free Paloma recipe comes to us from Imbibe Magazine. It was recommended while we were looking up some fun Cinco de Mayo cocktails. But now that we’ve tried it and found it so refreshing, this may become a nice go-to cocktail for those hot summer days!
The Sugar Free Paloma is a slightly different take on a classic margarita, but with grapefruit flavor in addition to the lime. Honest, after trying the Paloma, I may not go back to the margarita!
It was only a matter of time before the Sugar Free Aviation Cocktail was mixed after we made our Sugar Free Maraschino Liqueur!
The Sugar Free Aviation Cocktail is an old one that dates back to 1916, where it was first published in Recipes for Mixed Drinks, by Hugo Ensslin. It was also later published in the Savoy Cocktail Book, where it inexplicably omits the (IMHO) very necessary Creme de Violette. It’s also rumored that it was named because it’s color resembles that of the sky.
The Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice Cocktail is an original MDR Labs creation! The flavors of bourbon, pumpkin, cream, and the Sugar Free Allspice Dram meld together wonderfully in this new autumnal cocktail that can be served either cold or hot!
That’s right, with a little effort, the same combination of reagents can completely transform the Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice Cocktail from a cool and refreshing seasonal beverage, to a slightly spicier version to warm your innards in the cold fall evenings!
Hello MDR enthusiasts!
We’d like to take a moment to discuss what we feel defines a mixed drink and what makes a cocktail a cocktail. If you do a google search (with some careful search modifiers), you’ll find that there are differing opinions on mixed drinks versus cocktails (many in the comments sections!)
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.
