The Avenue

Did you know Kansas City, Missouri never went through Prohibition?

In the United Stated, alcohol was banned from 1920-1933, the Movement gained popular progressive support and the Prohibition Supporters called "drys" were both Democratic and Republican and gained a national grassroot base through the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. But despite the popular support, Prohibition was never enforced in some places like Kansas City, Missouri.

  • Famous Grouse Scotch Whisky

    Scotch Whisky or simply Scotch is one of the most famous traditional whisky, the other being Irish Whiskey, Canadian Whisky, American Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey, Japanese Whisky and Australian Whisky.

    Just like in Ireland ( Uisce Beatha ), the Scottish word for Whisky is a derivative of the Scottish Gaelic word Uisge Beatha, meaning the Water of Life.

    Scotch Whiskey is a Geographically Identified Product and there are regulations that has to be met for a Whisky to be labeled a Scotch Whisky.

    Traditionally Scotch Whisky is made from malted barley, but there had been deviation and variations too. A distinctive characteristic of a Scotch Whisky is drying of the malted barley over a peat fire, that attributes a smoky aroma to the Whisky. post distillation, maturation or aging is done in oak barrels previously used for bourbon whiskey, Sherry, Wine, Fortified Wine, Rum and other Spirits. This Aging process that spans years is the largest contributing factor that impact the flavour of the Whisky.

    To be labeled a Scotch, a Whisky has to be pass several guidelines and production standards designed by the Scotch Whisky Regulations 2009.

    • 1. Comprises a minimum alcoholic strength by volume of 40% (80 US proof)
    • 2. Contains no added substances, other than water and plain (E150A) caramel colouring
    • 3. Is produced at a distillery in Scotland from water and malted barley (to which only whole grains of other cereals may be added) all of which have been:
      • 3.1 Converted at that distillery to a fermentable substrate only by endogenous enzyme systems
      • 3.2 Distilled at an alcoholic strength by volume of less than 94.8% (190 US proof)
      • 3.3 Fermented at that distillery only by adding yeast
      • 3.4 Processed at that distillery into a mash
    • 4. Is wholly matured in an excise warehouse in Scotland in oak casks of a capacity not exceeding 700 litres (185 US gal; 154 imp gal) for at least three years
    • 5. Retains the colour, aroma, and taste of the raw materials used in, and the method of, its production and maturation

    There are two basic types of Scotch Whisky, blended Scotch are created by master blenders from these two types.

    1. Single Grain Scotch is a Scotch whisky distilled in a single distillery and in addition to water and malted barley, may have whole grains of other malted or un-malted grains. Note that single here refers to Single Distillery origin, not a Single grain.

    2. Single Malt Scotch is a Scotch distilled in a single distillery like a Single Grain, but it must not use anything but Malted Barley.

    Out of these, are derived Blended Grain Scotch Whisky and Blended Malt Scotch Whisky with the obvious explanatory names, a Blended Grain Scotch is a blend of two or more Single Grain Scotch Whisky while a Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is a blend of two or more Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

    While a Blended Scotch Whisky is a blend of one or more Single Malt Scotch Whiskies with one or more Single Grain Scotch Whiskies.

  • Calvados Brandy

    Calvados is a cider brandy from Normandy, France. Calvados is distilled from cider made from specially grown and selected apples, from over 200 named varieties. The fruit is harvested and pressed into a juice that is fermented into a dry cider. It is then distilled into eau de vie. After two years of aging in oak casks, it can be sold as calvados. The longer it is aged, the smoother the drink becomes. Usually, the maturation goes on for several years.

    Calvados is different from a Hard Cider which is popular in the British Isles.

    a Hard Cider is a bubbly low alcohol beverage that is often mistaken for a beer for it's carbonated nature and is not even a wine since it's fermentatation is not complete and thus it's less alcoholic and mildly sweet (since apple doesn't contain as much sugar as grapes even the semi-fermented beverage doesn't contain as much leftover sugar as a wine at s similar stage would have ) whereas a Calvados is produced by distilling a cider.

    "Calvados is the regimental drink of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, The Royal Regina Rifles, The Royal Canadian Hussars, Le Régiment de Hull, Le Régiment de Maisonneuve, and The Sherbrooke Hussars. The troops were gifted with Calvados as the units passed through Normandy following the D-Day invasion." - Wikipedia

  • Orange Flower Water

    Water might seem like one ubiquitous ingredient in any alcoholic beverage, and to have no specific purpose other than dilute the alcohol, to prevent irritation and burn, it has more purpose to its presence than it seems.
    Water breaks the alcohol molecules and attaches to them and releases the esters that holds the secret to the aroma into the drink and to the nose. Temperature of water is important and although almost all cocktails are served chilled, be sure to understand the role water plays in a drink. Another factor is the quality of water, if you are serious about your cocktail, be sure to use the best neutral tap water or preferably bottled spring water if possible.

The Avenue Recipe

Add all the ingredients in to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 10-20 seconds until chilled and strain into a martini glass to serve.

  • Martini Glass

    A Cocktail Glass is a stemmed glass with an inverted cone bowl used to serve straight up cocktails. Altough the term Cocktail Glass is used interchangeably with Martini Glass, they differ slightly. a Martini Glass is purely conical while a Cocktail Glass is more rounded in shape and the Martini Glass is wider at the mouth and has a taller stem.

    The martini glass has somewhat fallen out of favour in modern times due to its tendency to spill drinks, and the champagne coupe is sometimes used instead.

  • Simple Guide to Cocktail Glassware

    When there is no specific glass suggested for a cocktail, it's up to you to chose a glass.
    Either you just go ahead and serve using any glass available to you following these simple rules
    A. Go for Tall or Collins Glasses, Highball Glasses or even Hurricane Glasses for cocktails with loads of non-alcoholic mixes, and those that require crushed or cubed ices,
    B. But if your cocktail is aromatic and liqueur based, and has a complex character that must reach the nose use a wide mouthed Cocktail Glass.
    C. Red Wine Glasses for cocktails that have a Red Wine as the base spirit. Red Wine Glasses have a wider mouth and a long stem, so that the wine can be swirled an aerated to release the aroma while the long stem keeps the fingers away and avoid quick warming of the wine.
    D. White Wine Glasses for cocktails with a White Wine base, since White Wines must not be aerated as much as a Red Wines, since they oxidise fast when in contact with air, White Wine glassware, in contrast to the wide mouthed bowl of a Red Wine Glassware, is narrow with a narrow mouth. A White Wine has much lighter and delicate notes and the narrow mouth and less surface area in contact with air helps retain the aroma.
    E. If your cocktail is based on a Sparkling Wine like Champagne then a Flute Glass is more suitable since a Sparkling Wine is a White Wine with a secondary fermentation that produces the bubbles, and the narrow mouth flute prevents the bubbles from escaping.
    F. If it's winter and you are in the mood for some hot cocktails like the Irish Coffee or Hot Toddy, go for the Irish Coffee Glass, it has a heat resistant glass and a handle.
    G. Martini Glasses for Martinis or "Tinis" in general, but since these glasses have fallen off of favour these days, a Cocktail Glass will be good too.
    H. IF you are serving Margaritas, don't look for Margarita Glass if you don't have one at home, Double Old Fashioned Glass or other glasses are more common these days, for serving Margaritas.
    I. If you are the adventurous one, and are serving shots or shooters, of course the Shot Glass is your choice of glass,
    J. Finally, if you are going all out and serving depth charges and car bomb shots, all you need is a Double Old Fashioned Glass or a Beer Mug for the beer and a shot glass to drop the bomb in.
