That’s right, folks. We have officially released product number two. It’s a blend of green and black jasmine teas with a hint of orange for the citrus note, with only 20% grain neutral spirit and 20% cane sugar. We are quite proud of this product, and it’s already making its way onto shelves in retail and cocktail spots throughout Texas. Our pals down at the CU29 Cocktail Bar had it on their featured menu for South By Southwest, even.
It pairs well with your favorite spirit, or sips just as smoothly all on its own. You can use it instead of simple syrup for a more floral, less sweet version of your favorite cocktail. We like it with something smoky, like mezcal or Scotch. Any way you have it, you’re going to #jazzitup.
- 1.5 oz Scotch
- 1.5 oz Jasmine Liqueur
- Soda or Topo Chico
Pour your favorite Scotch and an equal measure of Jasmine Liqueur over ice into a highball glass, top with soda water (our favorite is Topo Chico), and give it a quick stir, then enjoy. I call it the “Hepcat Highball” because when I #jazzitup with something smoky, I think of the Elephant Room, a basement level jazz club on South Congress Ave. in my hometown of Austin. When I first started listening to the great bands playing jazz there, it was still legal to smoke in bars, and upon entering you descended the stairs into a thick haze. It will always be in my mind as the quintessential smoky jazz club, even though the air down there is much more breathable these days.
