2014: A recap in cocktails


2014 has been such a great year for us, not just for me and boozinQC but also for the Queen City.  We’ve had some pretty great cocktails come out of some of our favorite bars this year and I want to take a moment to highlight my favorites.

The Stow Away

Made by Stefan from Heist Brewery, this Sailor Jerry Tiki cocktail is sweet, fruity and perfect for warmer weather.

Sailor Jerry Rum

Strawberry Puree


Pineapple Juice


The Scotchie Pippen

This cocktail has been etched into my memory since the day I had it.  Created by Andy Maurer at Soul for a tasting event with Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador, David Allaridice.  It’s not readily available now but I’m sure the fellas at Soul could make a great substitute.

Glenfiddich 12yr

Pure Intentions Cold Brew

Orange Bitters

Glenfiddich infused whipped cream garnish


Roasted Jalapeno Margarita

While margaritas aren’t normally my go-to cocktail, my friend Krissie adores them.  When we tried this gem from 1900 Mexican Grill, we were both surprised by how refreshing it was.

Espolon tequila

Watermelon Puree

Roasted Jalapenos

Fresh Lime


The Root Daiquiri

You wont find this in Charlotte, but it’s close.  Sovereign Remedies in Asheville is home to this incredible drink.  With fresh ingredients, it is damn tasty.

Flor De Cana rum
