In today’s Episode…
We’re answering questions about lighter liqueurs, syrups vs. liqueurs, and compund gin. Check out the questions below and listen in for the answers!
I really enjoy cocktails with bitters, and have been experimenting with different dark liquors (whiskey, dark rum) and bitters in Manhattan-style cocktails. I’m curious about cocktails that incorporate white liquors (vodka, light rum, gin) and bitters….I haven’t ventured there yet…although I have dabbled with shrubs.

While I understand the difference between a syrup and a liqueur, I’m not quite sure of the situations where you would use one or the other when creating your own cocktail recipes. I’d really like to know your thoughts/general principles around this.

Love the podcast. I have another DIY question: Have you ever tried to do your own compound gin (without distillation)?
While I wouldn’t use a homemade gin for a Martini because of the darker coloring a homemade gin probably would have, I could see such a gin work very well in a Negroni or Gin Gin Mule where a little color wouldn’t hurt. Have you any suggestions what botanicals to use in your DIY compount gin in general – and how to tweak them to compliment a Negroni or Gin Gin Mule?
