Here’s something that makes our Charlotte marketing agency a tad bitter:
Summer’s almost here, and unless you’re under 18 (and still enjoy an aimless summer vacation), don’t count on much to break up the monotony of the work week through the coming hot, steamy months.
Except, of course, crisply refreshing summer cocktails.
At birdsong gregory, we’re fortunate enough to employ a couple of amateur mixologists on staff, and when we celebrate Thirsty Thursdays on the rooftop of our downtown shopper marketing agency (715 N Church), the spirits and ingredients vary according to season and mood, but one constant presence on the bar are Scrappy’s Bitters (and crab/manchego/garlic stuffed cremini mushroom caps).
In addition to having award-winning packaging, Scrappy’s is the first American bitters company to commercially produce handcrafted bitters. Using organic ingredients of the highest quality with no artificial flavors, chemicals, or dyes, this Seattle based company draws its inspiration from the Old World – small-batch artisanal techniques that let them control the quality of the product on a level not yet achievable by robots.
Here’s what’s on the menu this week:
The BG Gin Highball
2 ounces Nolet’s Silver gin
1 teaspoon honey simple syrup
2 dashes cardamom bitters
1 lime wedge.
Fill a highball with ice. Add gin and simple syrup. Stir gently, top with club soda. Add bitters. Garnish with a lime wedge. And enjoy!
