Do you remember the 2020 hurricane season? The one where the Gulf Coast got threatened and directly hit with storms so many times that the powers that be had to deep dive into the Greek alphabet to name these overactive bundles of climate uncertainty, all during the most stressful year in contemporary memory? Yes, that hurricane season. In response, we proudly introduced the Tropical Storm in our tasting room and sold them at a discount because good grief. In 2021, we're dusting these off with our old flashlights and prayer candles, and here's hoping this delicious cocktail is as dark and stormy as it gets this year.
1oz. Lemon juice
1oz. Pineapple simple syrup
Sprite or sparkling water (lemon, lime, pineapple or unflavored)
Pour rum, lemon juice, and pineapple simple syrup into a shaker with ice. Mix and strain over ice, top with sprite or sparkling water.
PINEAPPLE SIMPLE SYRUP
Combine equal parts pineapple juice and sugar in a pot. (So, for example, 1 cup of each.) Heat in the pot until all the sugar has dissolved.
In case you haven't noticed, we've got a thing for that dinosaur movie from the '90s... Inspired by one of the greatest scenes, we wanted to create a cocktail with the perfect mixture of sour and sweet.
2oz. 504Bananas Foster
2oz. Orange Juice
5 shakes orange bitters
Pour rum, orange juice, and bitters over ice. Top with grenadine for a sunset-visage.
All the rain last week had us missing the sun, so our Tasting Room Manager Parker concocted this cocktail reminiscent of a tequila sunrise and replaced the tequila with 504Bananas Foster. The Sunrise Split managed to summon the sun back to New Orleans' skies, so we think it worked!
1oz. orange juice
1oz. cranberry juice
1oz. pineapple habanero simple syrup
6 dashes chili bitters
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake, and strain over ice.
Making the Pineapple Habanero Simple Syrup
Combine 1 part pineapple juice with 1 part sugar and simmer. Once the sugar is dissolved, add cut habaneros (how many you add depends on how spicy you want it - if you want extra spice, include the seeds) and simmer for half an hour. Strain into a container for later use.
Our tasting room manager Parker was feeling a nostalgia for simpler times when he came up with this new favorite from our Spring 2021 menu.
Filled with the spirit of Ferris Bueller, Parker was on a quest to reinvent the old school juice box - but WAY less Full House and more Breakfast Club. Packed full of blatant rebellion against parents you may or may not still live with, the Monkey Wrench is a tribute to detentions spent in the lunch room slurping on a leftover pouch of Hawaiian Punch - but this time with specialty chili bitters and a handmade pineapple habanero simple syrup that you made yourself because #ADULTING.
A little bit sweet, a little bit tart, a little bit spicy, and the perfect amount of 504Hibiscus. We recommend this in lieu of mimosas for your weekend brunch plans, and maybe put on some Radiohead or Blink 182 while you're at it.
