Cocktail Commons is currently hooked on the Brown Derby. It's easy, delicious, and perfect for hot hot heat. There isn't a whole lot of history surrounding this drink and whence it came. It was first spotted in a 1939 Esquire article but that was a rum based recipe. Wherever it may have originated, here is what I recommend to you as a good go-to libation for summer sippin.⠀

2 oz bourbon (Old Forester is my go to)⠀
1 oz grapefruit juice⠀
1/2 oz honey syrup (2:1 honey and water)⠀

Add all ingredients. Add ice. Shake. Strain. Serve up. Sip.⠀

Let's say I was to search for the greatest songs of all time. If I was to do that I might check out Billboard to see what they had to say about things. If I was to do that I would be flabbergasted at the #2 song on the list of Hot 100 Greatest songs of all time. (drum roll please) "Smooth" by Santana ft. Rob Thomas.⠀

I have no real beef with Santana. Obviously an incredible guitarist and probably a real decent dude. His sorta soundjust ain't my bag. ⠀

Rob Thomas on the other hand... I mean man, have we shared some times. "Push" was one of the greatest songs I had ever heard as a youngun. Between "Razorblade Suitcase" and "Yourself or Someone Like You" I had all the adolescent angst I needed to punch a stranger in the mouth. Well I will, well I will. But I digress.... ⠀

"Smooth" might be the most annoying song I've ever had forced upon my ears. For years every wedding, every school function, every gas station, every Blockbuster Video, every Starbucks, you couldn't hide from this damn song. It was like a conspiracy between Santana and Bill Clinton to distract us with horrific salsa-esque pop songs. And I will eat my mother flippin hat if that is the #2 song of the 20th century. ⠀

Let's do better in the 21st century. Let's make a pact. Right here. Right now. Here are 13 songs from the first 13 years of the 21st century that are 13 times better than Smooth. Follow the link in my bio to some songs that will make Smooth sound Ruffffffff.

Making delicious cocktails is so easy even a toddler can do it. But I wouldn't encourage that because that would be terribly irresponsible. ⠀

If you are looking for something refreshing to sip on this weekend look no further than a ridiculously refreshing and super simple Caipirinha. ⠀

You will need a bottle of cachaca, limes, and sugar. Cut your lime in to 8 wedges. Make a simple syrup (1:1 water and sugar). For the cachaca, my personal favorite is Novo Fogo. ⠀

In a shaking device (at home I often use a mason jar with a lid) add 4 slices of lime and 1 oz of simple syrup. Smash those items together with a muddler/a spoon/a fist. Add 2 oz of cachaca. Add ice. Shake hard. Pour all contents including limes and ice in to a rocks glass. Boom. Done. Delicious.⠀

Sun is shining. The weather is sweet. Make you want to move your dancing feet. ⠀

If you aren't a Bob Marley fan, get in line. That being said, "Kaya" is the perfect album for summer. Especially if you are here in Atlanta where the heat is only accentuated by crazy heavy rainfall every afternoon. ⠀

Heat, rain, and music should all be enjoyed with a libation. So when put on "Kaya" and start feeling the #summervibes pour yourself a Smith & Cross negroni. It will transport you to Jamaica. #fact

1oz Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum⠀
1oz Campari⠀
1oz Punt e Mes⠀
Pour over ice. Stir. Throw in a slice of orange for good measure.⠀

This is how cocktail shakers used to look. Why they don't make them this way any more is beyond me. They hold more booze. They have a pour spout. They are purdy. If you like living in the past and need a classy way to shake up some drinks this set and so much more is available at Candlefish in Ponce City Market.

And when the wind blows hard and the sky is black...DUCKS FLY TOGETHER! This one goes out to Gordon Bombay. It's Friday. It's 4th of July weekend. It's knuckle puck time.⠀

Candles and vintage glassware go together like peanuts and butter. Or ice and cream. Whatever the case may be, you should stop by Candlefish at Ponce City Market for both! Cocktail Commons goodness is currently available at @shopcandlefish (which is probably most beautiful and best smelling shop in @poncecitymarket).

Knowledge is power. And copper is awesome. With these two items combined, there are good things in your future. ⠀
