  • Sweet Sherry

    Sherry is a fortified wine of Spanish origin. This is a fortified wine made from the white palomino grapes that grow near the city of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. The name Sherry is the anglicisation of Xérès (Jerez).

    Sherry is produced in several styles including light sherries like Manzanilla and fino, similar to white table wines, and darker and heavier wines such as Amontillado and oloroso, that are allowed to oxidise as they age in barrels.

    Sherry is fortified with grape spirit after the fermentation is complete, where as Port, a similar wine from Portugal is fortified half way through the fermentation which stops further fermentation of sugar into alcohol. Thus, Port is sweeter and Sherry is usually Dry and sweetness if any is added later.

    So, Dry Sherry is essentially the wine which has completed fermentation and has little to no sugar from the grapes left in it.

    There are naturally sweet Sherry too, Moscatel, made from the grapes by the same name and they are produced like Port, that is, fermentation is stopped mid way, and there is Pedro Ximénez too.

  • Bourbon Whiskey

    American's don't need to be lectured on Bourbon, but still, let's put it in record like all other spirits. A Bourbon in American spirit is a barrel-aged distilled liquor made primarily from corn. The name might have been derived from the French Bourbon dynasty, or from Bourbon County in Kentucky, or Bourbon Street in New Orleans, both named after the French Dynasty.

    Technically, most whiskey made in America are legally classified as Bourbon, although Bourbon is in spirit a Southern Whiskey with special connection to Kentucky. Note than although Tennessee Whiskey is classified as Bourbon, Tennessee distilleries do not prefer their whiskey to be unique and referred to as Tennessee Whiskey only.

    Distilling came to Kentucky in the late 18rth Century with the Scots, Scot-Irish and other settlers including English, Welsh, German and French, and they brought with them their distilling techniques and ageing processes in charred oak barrels. The charring is what gives the Bourbon the brownish colour and distinctive taste.

    To be a legal Bourbon, a whiskey has to meet the following criteria

        Produced in the United States and Territories (Puerto Rico) and the District of Columbia
        Made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn
        Aged in new, charred oak containers
        Distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) proof (80% alcohol by volume)
        Entered into the container for aging at no more than 125 proof (62.5% alcohol by volume)
        Bottled (like other whiskeys) at 80 proof or more (40% alcohol by volume)


    Tennessee Whiskey meets all the requirements too, but they prefer keeping it distinct.

  • Dry Sherry

    Sherry is a fortified wine of Spanish origin. This is a fortified wine made from the white palomino grapes that grow near the city of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. The name Sherry is the anglicisation of Xérès (Jerez).

    So, Dry Sherry is essentially the wine which has completed fermentation and has little to no sugar from the grapes left in it.

    There are naturally sweet Sherry too, Moscatel, made from the grapes by the same name and they are produced like Port, that is, fermentation is stopped mid way, and there is Pedro Ximénez too.

  • Dry Vermouth

    Vermouth the French for German Wermut, Wormwood in English, is an aromatic fortified Wine, flavoured with various botanicals like roots, barks, flowers, herbs, seeds and spices.

    Although traditionally Vermouth was used for medicinal purposes, it has been also served as an apéritif in its modern avatar. The modern Vermouth first appeared in and around the 18th Century in Turin. By the late 19th Century it became very popular with bartenders as a key ingredient in cocktail mixology.

    Martini, Manhattan, Rob Roy and Negroni were a few cocktails that Vermouth grew in popularity with. But later during the 20th Century, Vermouth slowly lost its glory and Dry Martinis and extra Dry Martinis with little or no Vermouth gained over the original Martini. Modern Martinis usually have a splash of Vermouth to add that herbacious texture to it.

    Historically, there have been two Vermouth types, Dry and Sweet, but with demand variations have come up now. that include extra-dry white, sweet white, red, amber and rose.

    Vermouth is produced by adding proprietory mixture of aromatic botanicals to a base wine or a base wine plus spirit or spirit only, which is usually redistilled before adding it to a base of neutral grape wine or unfermented wine must ( freshly pressed grapes and the juice ). After the wine is aromatised and fortified. it is sweetened and the end product is a Vermouth.

    Dry Vermouth is what makes the character of the original Martini, and a Dry Vermouth has less sugar and is more herbacious but less spicier than Sweet Vermouth.

  • Lemon Juice

    Lemon Juice being rich in Vitamin C is an excellent remedy for sore throat and aids in digestion and controls blood sugar, and also promoted weight loss. It is used for various culinary and non-culinary purposes all over the world. Lemon juice is known to reduce or even reverse the effects of excessive alcohol consumption and intoxication.
    In drink mixing, fresh lemon juice brings a tangy zing to so many classic drinks and in fact, it's the most used ingredient in drink mixing other than the liquors of course.

  • Lemonade

    This sweetened lemon flavoured beverage is an eternal popular throughout the world and there are varieties of homemade lemonades found everywhere. In North Africa and South Asia, cloudy lemonade dominates, be sure if your cocktail requires a clear lemonade or a cloudy one, which is indication of fruit pulp presence in the mix.
