We’re too excited for @negroniweek ft. a very important component to any serious bar program and one of our favorite herbal liqueurs @campariofficial

This weekend and next find two specialty cocktails commemorating this very important time of year as well as two POC Female pioneers; Nancy Kwan and Diana Ross.

For our first cocktail pictured we have a MATCHA NEGRONI aka NANCY KWAN made with the most important ingredients LOVE & STYLE … then we add ceremonial grade Matcha Tea powder, Coconut Water, Amaro Nonino, @campariofficial, @beefeatergin and a gorgeous Demerara.

It’s a mouthfeel unlike any other with nutty, creamy notes and umami for days.

For our second play on a Negroni we present the ORANGE BLOSSOM & STRAWBERRY NEGRONI SLUSHI aka DIANA ROSS -
Made with @empress1908gin , @campariofficial, fresh strawberries, Orange blossom sweet tea reduction, Prosecco of Rosé and shaved ice.

She’s refreshing, effervescent and dangerous. Though you won’t know it tell your second round.

ARE YOU ATTENDING @tales_of_the_cocktail virtually? Find us on @whova_app by typing in “Baxter’s Speakeasy.” We would love to chat with you and talk shop.

September is cool. Stay safe. Drink responsibly and have some fun! You deserve it!

Cheers, Love, Grace Jones

POWERFUL things happening this year! Look out in the HEARTLAND.
.

Baxter’s Speakeasy 5th year anniversary is approaching and with it comes MIDWEST dark and light MAGIC.
.

Be on the lookout for upcoming pop-ups in underground dwellings, warehouse roofs, through the refrigerator behind the sketchy bridge near the broken fountain across from Deer Pond. Thematic speakeasies through tunnels that engage the imagination in not one, but five course pairing.
.

I’m not sure where Deer Pond is but it sounds ROYAL and I will Be filtering it’s ancient waters one I find it.
