The Cocktails

When it comes down to it, the classics are classics for good reason.  Balanced, familiar, timeless. That’s why we’re starting with “the classics” – we’re not reinventing the wheel, we’re just steering it directly to wherever you are.

The Old Fashioned is the original cocktail.  It’s as classic as it gets and, when done right, it’s the mark of a master. You want to taste the bourbon, followed by a hint of sweet orangey citrus and rounded out at the finish with the warming spice of bitters.

Tasting Notes: Vanilla, citrus and caramel on the palate going into a stone fruit and spice finish.

This one is the sophisticated extrovert. Sure, it’s spirit-forward, but still refreshing. The Manhattan is bold and spices things up with its peppery bite. With each sip comes a little more truth and a little more confidence to speak it.

Tasting Notes: Herbaceous spicy profile with dark cherry and cinnamon undertones.

Negroni

Dry Gin

Red Bitters

If you like Negronis, you probably actually love Negronis. It’s just that kind of drink. Bittersweet and boozy. A high wire balancing act that would only be attempted by three bold ingredients such as these. This red-hued classic is unmistakable, even at a quick glance, and especially once you’ve had your first sip.

Tasting Notes: Bright orange and grapefruit with fresh juniper and a juicy, yet bitter, finish.

The Story

Our roots are in live music – a world where experience is everything, yet delicious cocktails are often out of reach. And we believe the good things in life should be more accessible. Enlisting the help of our favorite bartender and James Beard finalist, Miles Macquarrie (Kimball House, Watchman’s Seafood & Spirits), we developed classic cocktail recipes and packaged them up to drink at any time and, just about, any place. Tip Top Proper Cocktails are always within reach, especially if a trusted bartender or fully-stocked bar are not.
