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.

    This doesn't seem quite there yet. I assumed whiskey with a 'e' didn't mean Scotch so used Evan Williams bourbon. To me it's a little flat and metallic - some expressed orange zest helped. Maybe reduce the absinthe and go for a non-Punt vermouth?

    It's okay but basically just tastes like the ingredients rather than a carefully balanced cocktail.

    Love everything about this drink. Perfectly balanced.

    Seriously strange. Maybe it's because I used a different coffee liqueur (Tempus Fugit), but I'm not sure these flavors work together.

    Good winter vibes. Same vein as Left Hand and Black Lodge. Add to rotation.
