FOS Greek Mastiha:

FOS Greek Mastiha liqueur is a clear spirit with a unique sweet taste. The prime ingredient of this spirit derives from resin of the Mastiha Tree, also known as the Crying Tree. The rare and natural tree resin is grown and cultivated exclusively on the small Mediterranean island Chios in Greece, unable to take root anywhere else in the world.

3 white grapes

1/2 oz simple syrup


Build in a tall wine / sangria glass
Muddle in glass
Fill glass with ice cubes

El Consuelo:

El Consuelo 100% Organic tequila is created with USDA certified blue weber agaves sourced from Jalisco in the Mexican region of Tequila, a region with unique climatic characteristics that yield a larger, fruitier agave – resulting in superior Tequila.

Mix this up straight up on the rocks and stir
PUt all ingredients in to a shaker with ice and shake well,

Toast Vodka:

Made in the USA and distilled in Florida, Toast has drawn influence from the high-energy and endless summers found in Miami to shape its brand character as well as its unique formula based from coconut water. Not to be confused with a ‘flavored vodka,’ the coconut water used in Toast Vodka’s production is unsweetened and retains all the natural benefits while only subtly influencing the taste profile.

Peony is a unique, 5-times distilled vodka, developed from a recipe infused with an array of floral botanicals.

Allaire is from Barbados and it is considered by many as the archetype/ reference point for other Barbados (or Caribbean ) rums. The rum is the ultimate expression of excellence from the island. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in oak barrels and filtered with a proprietary method that gives it a beautiful crystal tone and enhances the sensory richness.
