We took some time to chat with Miguel Buencamino (@holycityhandcraft), owner of Holy City Handcraft, this month to share a special Father’s Day inspired cocktail.
Handcraft is based in Charleston, South Carolina, and was founded in 2015 to share Miguel’s passion for homemade meals and cocktails with his friends and family. Over the years, he refined his knowledge of southern culture while also honing his skill in capturing lifestyle through his own unique aesthetic.
Miguel says he enjoys using Four Roses in his cocktails because our Bourbons are delicious and so versatile. Specifically, he finds that our Small Batch Bourbon pairs well with shaken drinks such as a classic Whiskey Sour, but also shines in spirit-forward, stirred cocktails such an as an Old Fashioned, or his personal favorite, the Boulevardier.
“The flavor profiles in Small Batch are rich, but delicate – allowing for a delicious and sophisticated Bourbon cocktail no matter the occasion,” said Miguel.
La Vie En Rose
2 oz Four Roses Small Batch
3/4 oz Creme de Cacao
1/4 oz Strawberry syrup
5 drops Smoked saline
Smoked dried rose (optional)
Combine all ingredients except dried rose and strawberry syrup in a mixing glass with ice. Smoke your glassware (I used a cognac snifter) with a dried rose. Stir, strain and pour the cocktail over a large ice cube. Serve and enjoy!
Four Roses is committed to safe, responsible drinking.
