A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

Beta Cocktails by Maks Pazuniak and Kirk Estopinal

Are you a bartender that wants to find that one drink to add to your menu to make your local cocktail nerd swoon? Or maybe you're the jaded home mixer who's tried so many Manhattan variations you are sure they are running out of areas of New York? Behold: Beta Cocktails. Originally published in 2009 as Rogue Cocktails, the book is a collaboration between Maks Pasuniak and Kirk Estopinal, who met while tending bar in New Orleans. They combined a handful of their own recipes with some of their favorite boundary-pushing offerings from their colleagues and slapped the whole thing together as a self-published mini-book. Everything seemed great until Rogue Brewery came calling with a trademark infringement complaint, and Beta Cocktails was born.

    Okay, this is driving me crazy: what's the second R?

    pretty good - I had different VS cognac and had to use regular chartreuse. I opted to use yellow for a mellow flavor and it was nice and smooth. Have to find the 45% for a bit more bite to it.
