You love a gin & tonic because it’s light and refreshing. You enjoy a whiskey sour because it warms your soul and has nice bourbon flavor. A Piña Colada on a warm day by the pool makes your weekend special. But… why?
The artist that designed your favorite cocktail knew how connecting flavors made a difference. There are no doubt many fantastic cocktails that happened by mistake, a fluke mix of a few flavors that sparked something special. But, most cocktails, like most food pairings, come with a bit of intention and purpose.
