👋 I'm Casey, the guy behind Little Libations. I've been slinging cocktails at home for a few years and decided to document them on Instagram. Right now, I'm also building a cocktail app!

I usually like to stay behind the camera (and shaker tin) but today felt like sharing a little bit about me:
🏡 I live in Virginia with my wife & dog.
🎨 I design apps for a living.
🎶 I moonlight as a singer-songwriter.
🍺 I almost started a brewery after college.
🍹 Heres me drinking my first Little Libations drink.

I like cocktails because they are natural conductors for relationships, hospitality and storytelling. What's your story?

Getting after that negroni!
.
Finding half bottles of Dolin vermouth has really helped with the #BudgetHomeBar thing. Once opened, vermouth only keeps for about 3 months in the refrigerator. It might not necessarily go "bad" then but the quality and flavor significantly diminishes over time. I don't think I've ever used a full bottle within that 3 month window, so these 375 ml ones are perfect for home bar use!

Everyone, I have great news: the complexity of this barrel-aged gin makes for amazing cocktail variations. The bad news is that I'm all out of it!

Getting a cocktail shaker is pretty obligatory for making drinks, but a mixing glass is often overlooked when gearing up a home bar.
.
You want to stir cocktails that are primarily spirit (think like Old Fashioneds & Martinis) vs. shaking ones that have ingredients that are harder to incorporate (like juices & egg white). Stirring provides a gentler mixing method, as well as more precise dilution.
.
I grabbed this stylish mixing glass from @viskistyle for under $20. However, you could always use a glass French-press coffeemaker or pint glass. Preferably something with a wide base that allows the ice more contact with the liquid.

Habanero-Grapefruit Margarita
.
It's finally heating up here in #pdx! Here's a fun margarita recipe I came up with this afternoon. Some people get nervous when they see "habanero" in anything, but it more just gives it an extra kick, and won't burn your face off. Try it out if you can get your hands on some habanero-infused sea salt!
.
1.5oz blanco tequila (@espolontequila)
1/2oz @cointreau
1.5oz grapefruit juice
1/2oz lime juice
1/2oz simple syrup
5-7 drops Hellfire habanero shrub (@bittermens)
Habanero-infused sea salt
.
Rub the edge of a glass with grapefruit and rim with habanero-infused salt (got mine from @bittermansaltco). Add all ingredients to shaker. I add Hellfire shrub based on how spicy I want it (5-7 drops is pretty safe). Shake and strain over ice. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a lime wheel 🔥👌🏼

Lavender in our cocktails? We won't say no! Made these orange beauties as a signature drink at a garden party wedding at Demetria last September. PC: @myonelove

Happy #worldwhiskeyday. My dad shared some Jim Beam 13 year (straight from the barrel) with me and I opted to have it over a clear ice cube.

Happy #WorldWhiskeyDay2017!

Later today I will be celebrating with a dram of Hakushu 12 year, my very first bottle of Japanese whiskey. Sadly, the U.S. can be a bit of a wasteland when it comes to finding Japanese whiskey... usually poor selection or just extremely pricey (or both). Thankfully, I was able to snatch up a bottle of this through @flaviar_com 🥃
.
Japanese whiskey is definitely its own animal, but it's a nice change of pace for me and my super-smokey Islay scotch collection. It's a lot lighter than most single-malts I'm used to, and would probably be greatly enjoyed by highland lovers. It has that honey-fruit sweetness without being too sweet, and just a little bit of salt and peat smoke to keep me happy 😉
