Here, at Cocktail Builder, we love experimenting with new ingredients and flavor profiles — both trying something completely unexpected and putting an updated spin on time-tested libations. But in 2018, we’re going back to the basics, focusing our efforts on perfecting the classic cocktails that we all think we know.
Sure, they’ve been around for a long time and it can be easy to believe that you’ve mastered them. But these cocktails are classics for a reason and they take care and finesse to get right. So, once a month we’ll be turning to bartenders, our taste buds, and, yes, even science to determine just what makes the perfectly crafted drink. First up: an International Bartenders Association “Contemporary Classic” and everyone’s favorite Sunday brunch sip, the Bloody Mary.
