Vesper Martini - Gin, Vodka, Lillet Blanc
Shaken not stirred. The Vesper martini first appeared in Ian Flemmings 1953 novel “Casino Royale”. The drink that James Bond created was later named after his then love interest, Vesper Lynd.
The Last Word - Gin, Green Chartreuse, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Fresh Lime Juice
A prohibition-era cocktail originally created at the Detroit Athletic Club in 1916. The drink fell into obscurity after World War II and didn’t resurface until 2004. Now a staple, and forever preserved at The Porch Light.
Oaxaca Sour - Mezcal, Amaro Nonino, Fresh Lime Juice, Agave Nectar, Egg White
An original cabin fever induced creation during the crazy quarantine of 2020. Oaxaca (wa:ha:ka:) is the region of Mexico where many Mezcals originate. Agave is smoked in underground pits, providing the smoky quality that has become associated with the spirit.
Dark N’ Stormy - Gosling's Black Seal Rum, Lime Wedges, Angostura Bitters, Gosling's Ginger Beer
A registered trademark of the Gosling brothers which prohibits US marketing of a drink by the name Dark N’ Stormy, unless it is made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum.
Irish Whisky Sour - Jameson Irish Whisky, Fresh Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Egg White
First mentioned in a Wisconsin newspaper publication “Waukesha Plain Dealer” in 1870. Proper sours contain egg whites, but try AquaFaba for those with an aversion.
Hemingway’s Daiquiri - White Rum, Grapefruit Juice, Fresh Lime Juice, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Simple Syrup
Author Ernest Hemingway wanted a less sweet, more boozy take on the classic daiquiri. He requested this of a bartender working at El Floridita in Havana, Cuba, where this drink was born. Hemingway once drank 17 in one day. He didn’t even get a hangover.
Madame Grey - Grey Goose Vodka, Campari, Fresh Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Absinthe Mist
A cheeky cocktail discovered through the ambitious adventures of a dear friend. Refined, reimagined, and exclusively available at The Porch Light.
Pure Imagination - Butterfly Pea Flower & Lavender Infused Gin, Fresh Lime Juice, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Local Honey Syrup, Dillon’s Black Currant Bitters, Egg White
Come with me, and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination. What you drink will defy expectations. We’ll begin with some gin, and my spin on the classic Aviation.
Social Life - Tito's Vodka, St. Germain, Fresh Lime Juice, Simple Syrup, Club Soda, Blueberry, Watermelon, Rosemary Essence
A classy cooler.
