Creative Cocktails

There’s a myriad of cocktails out there, some of which are off the charts good. While traveling the world, it’s interesting to try what the local bars conjur up. Here’s one that caught my eye, the Anythm Spirit at Gray’s in Franklin, Tennessee, USA.


Now that you know what’s in the drink, here’s a look at the finished product.


Quite tasty that was, in fact, it tasted like several more, enjoyed in a casual, friendly atmosphere, with some great music on stage, too. Note that Gray’s states they serve, “cocktails, spirits, tonics, remedies,” they are serious.

Signature Drinks, Aruba

Although I like my adult beverages simple, I appreciate the creativity of a good bartender. Hence, while having a few drinks at White Modern Cuisine (one of Aruba’s best restaurants), the bartender provided me with a handsome brochure of some signature drinks he created, each one a play on words and favorite cocktails.

Of course, you have to have the best ingredients and some equipment to make these drinks.

As in the “Conchi Cosmo” above, you’ll be making foam to top it off, which might be just the trick.

Aruba Signature Drink, "Cave Cooler."

That “Cave Cooler” above does look very refreshing. I had the pleasure of watching Bartender AJ produce several of these drinks. The man is a master craftsman.

AJ also has a great rapport with the clientele, explaining the origin of his drinks as well as the various type of liquor in each one.

As you, my loyal readers know, it’s the people that make the place. Stop in to White Modern Cuisine for a great meal and fantastic drinks. (Don’t forget, we all have our favorite watering holes. Be sure to enjoy yours responsibly.) Bon dia.
