The Seven Most-Clicked Cocktails of 2019
It’s not all signature serves behind the bar at Archie Rose. We’re quite the cocktail connoisseurs when you give us the chance. From the weird and wacky (G’day, Mitey Mary!) to the cocktail classics (Ciao, Negroni!), we’ve shaken up a storm all year long. For our end of year wrap-up, we dived deep into stats to find the seven cocktails you couldn’t live without…
7. The Aviation
The Aviation is the only cocktail our founder, Will Edwards, can whip up from memory. Looks like a lot of you were keen to follow suit! This classic hails from the golden era of cocktail-making, bringing together gin, maraschino liqueur, lemon juice and crème de violette. Try it with our Distiller’s Strength Gin, a distinguished drop for the bold at heart.
6. ArchieMite Sour
Gin. Citrus. Sugar. So goes the basic equation for a Gin Sour. It’s a cocktail that suits all spirits – especially ArchieMite Buttered Toast Spirit, an unaged spirit featuring freshly churned, uncultured Pepe Saya butter and Sonoma sourdough toast. Equal parts umami and savoury-mite-spread nostalgia.
Let gin be thy medicine. Inspired by the modern classic, the Penicill-gin swaps blended whisky for juniper-forward Signature Dry Gin, and smoked whisky for our limited release Smoked Gin. Paired with lemon, honey and ginger syrup, it’s the end-of-year cure-all you’ve been waiting for.
4. The Negroni
Not all drinks are created equal. The Negroni – a three-part adventure in gin, Campari and vermouth – is expertly balanced, equally boozy, bitter and sweet. Enjoy this handsome drink over ice, with a strip of orange peel if you’re feeling extra smug.
3. Pomegranate Spritz
Got some two-day-old oxidised wine sitting in the fridge? Fear not! Our Pomegranate Spritz, with all the fruity, dry freshness of pomegranate juice, is here to save the day. Designed for lovers of rosé wine, it’s a perfect sundowner for the summer season.
2. Mitey Mary
ArchieMite Buttered Toast Spirit started as a joke. Little did we know, we’d created the perfect companion for the brunch essential, a Bloody Mary. A savoury sip, with all the rich creaminess of Pepe Saya butter, elevates tomato juice, Tabasco and Worcestershire into something worth getting up for.
1. Espresso Mite-ini
ArchieMite strikes again! Our Espresso Mite-ini took home the top gongs for most creative – and most clicked – cocktail all year. Earthy and rich, ArchieMite Buttered Toast plays down the sweetness and heightens rich and bitter espresso in this modern classic.
