A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

From the Knowledge Vault

Welcome to the new Kindred Cocktails

We've completely redesigned and rewritten Kindred Cocktails. Cosmetically, we've updated it to modern web standards. You'll find it much easier and more complete on mobile devices. Most every feature has been retained and a few new ones added. Some features have moved to new, more logical places. And inside almost 95% of the code has been updated or rewritten. Explore. Let us know if you find anything that doesn't work as you'd expect.

If you've contributed cocktails, you'll find that our philosophy on submissions has changed. Previously we accepted recipes that weren't in conformance with our Style Guidelines. They were not published, but you could keep them in your cocktail book. All these private cocktails weren't shared, and this ran contrary to our concept of kindred -- a community of like-minded cocktail lovers. So now we accept only three unpublished cocktails at a time. Unpublished cocktails should be improved to meet our style guidelines and re-submitted for publication. Or merged into another existing cocktail. Or even deleted if not of sufficient quality. We hope this change creates a database of high-quality recipes for everyone to enjoy.

To help you keep track of your personal variation on a cocktail's ingredients, each cocktail book entry can have custom ingredients. Use the Paste Recipe button, then customize the ingredients to your liking. When you view the cocktail's page, you can see either your custom ingredients or the official ingredients.

We hope you'll enjoy the new version. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook if you'd like.

    What a smart way of elevating rum with sherry. And I love how the bitters and cinnamon syrup play together.

    When we first started going there in 2007, Eastern Standard still had a large stash of Amer Picon (no longer imported due to labeling issues) found in a corner of a distributor's warehouse, and they featured such great drinks like Chuck Taggart's Hoskins Cocktail (gin, Amer Picon, Maraschino, Cointreau, and orange bitters). When they depleted their picon collection, they had unfortunately hooked a loyal bar crowd on these libations and needed to find alternatives for them quick. When a regular named Heather requested a Hoskins in 2008, bar director Jackson Cannon thought on his feet and crafted the Heather in Queue to capture some of those flavors. Other orange spirits besides Bauchant would work here, but the bar loved that liqueur (not to mention other gins and blanc vermouths). Probably the most common orange liqueur to Bauchant would be Grand Marnier but perhaps Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao would work great.
