the sound shore old fashioned
Our take on the classic Old Fashioned pairs Sound Shore American Single Malt Whiskey with chocolate bitters to complement the unique palate of our whiskey.
50ml Sound Shore
American Single Malt Whiskey
1 teaspoon sugar/ sugar cube
3 dashes Scrappy's chocolate bitters
Orange peel (to garnish)
To create this take on the classic, simply muddle the sugar – cubed, loose, or even a simple syrup – and bitters together in a tumbler or rocks glass. (Pro tip: a drop of water here helps dissolve the sugar). Then add a whiskey pour and a few cubes of ice, stir and garnish with a lemon or orange peel twist. While an orange peel seems to be more fashionable these days, it's simply a matter of personal taste.
the spike island
If you're ever to be shipwrecked on Spike Island, this would be a drink you'd want in your throw bag. Not much of a history to this one, just our version of a Lion's Tail.
2 oz Sound Shore
American Single Malt Whiskey
1/2 oz St. Elizabeth All Spice Dram
1/2 oz fresh-squeezed juice of an orange
1/2 oz fresh-squeezed juice of a lime
1/2 oz simple syrup
2 dashes of Regan's Orange Bitters
Orange or lime twist (to garnish)
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange or lime twist, and enjoy.
the Mamaroneck mule
Mamaroneck is a long way from Moscow, but this Mule is delicious nonetheless. It combines Sound Shore Craft Vodka with ginger beer and an orange peel garnish.
4 oz Sound Shore Vodka
12 oz Brooklyn Crafted Ginger Beer
Orange wheel (to garnish)
Simply combine the ingredients in a copper tumbler. You'll need plenty of ice per serving (we prefer crushed). For garnish, we suggest an orange wheel, plus a sprig of mint if you happen to have some on hand.
As their names might suggest, Artie and Vinny’s backgrounds are from the Bel Paese.
In honor of our fratellos’ heritage, we present a timeless Martini with an Italian twist.
2 oz Sound Shore Craft Vodka
1 oz Disaronno Almond Liquor
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth
Granulated Sugar (for rim)
Roasted Almonds (to garnish)
Take all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill with crushed ice up to 2/3rds capacity. Shake thoroughly for 30 seconds so that melting water from the ice dilutes the drink as well as chills it. Strain the drink into a sugar-rimmed chilled martini glass. Garnish with three almonds.
THE STAMFORD LOCAL MARTINI
Ready for a ride on the Stamford Local? We're confident this Martini will beat anything that’s ever been served on Metro-North.
4 oz Sound Shore Craft Vodka
1 oz dry vermouth (may we suggest Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry Dry)
3 green olives (to garnish)
In a mixing glass, combine the vodka, dry vermouth, and stir gently with ice. Either pour into a rock glass or strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with those delightful olives and enjoy.
THE SPANISH COVE
Named after a picturesque hideaway in Mamaroneck Harbor, the Spanish Cove adds a hint of Iberian flair to a classic, creating a delicate balance of sweet and sour taste with a subtle citrus aroma. Sound Shore Vodka, with its subtle hint of sweetness and creamy mouth feel, blends perfectly.
2 oz Sound Shore Vodka
2 oz Licor 43 Cuarenta Tres - popular Spanish Liquor
A healthy splash of lime juice
Lemon wheel (to garnish)
Add ice cubes into your cocktail shaker. Add Vodka, Licor, and lime juice in it. Shake well until icy chilled. Strain and pour into a chilled martini glass, then add the lemon wheel to garnish
