Jason Main at the Wine Merchant in St. Louis has a deft hand on the rising world of artisan spirits. He entertains with large hand gestures, unruly and hilarious stories which he weaves with history and education while he makes you your cocktails.

I was fortunate enough to do an event with him this week in St Louis where we highlighted Local Wine & Spirits Gins and Whiskey.  The cocktails were stunning so I wanted to share a few of them with you and perhaps you can practice making them for your neighbors this weekend.

THE EASTERN MANHATTAN (this was a stunning version of the Manhattan with our Whipper Snapper Whiskey that is guaranteed to impress even the most fanatical imbiber of old school cocktails)

2 1/2 oz. Whipper Snapper Oregon Whiskey

1/2 oz. Domaine de Canton

1/2 oz. Dry Sake like Tozai Junmai

2 dashes Gary Regan’s Orange Bitters No.6

Stir all ingredients with ice, strain into a martini glass

THE SINGAPORE SLING (so complex and refreshing you must be careful or else you’ll be drinking this one by the pitcher)

1 oz. Small’s American Dry Gin

1/2 oz. Peter Heering Cherry Heering

1/2 oz. Joseph Cartron Curacao Triple Sec

1/4 oz. Benedictine

2 oz. Pineapple Juice

1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

Dash of Bitter Truth Decanter Bitters

Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into an ice filled highball, garnish with an orange slice and cherry (umbrella optional)
