HOW TO AGE AN AMAZING MARGARITA!

We’ll be aging a Silver Tequila so we can transform it into a robust reposado right at the bar. We’re going to be using fresh lime, muddled, just a touch of Cointreau, and of course a little simple syrup.

To create the reposado, use a low-cost Silver Tequila, I’m using Sauza, take off the cap, and drop a Time & Oak Signature Whiskey Element into the bottle to begin the aging process. Wait and age, continuing to taste every 3-5 days until desired taste is achieved.

  • Get a 30 ounce stainless steel cocktail / bar shaker
  • Add 1 fresh lime: cut in half and carve a cross into it to make it easier to muddle
  • Add a couple ice cubes to aid in the juicing process
  • Muddle
  • Add 2 ounces of your new reposado
  • Add 1/4 ounces of orange juice for warmness
  • Add 1/4 ounces of Cointreau to reinforce that citrus note
  • Add 3/4 ounces of simple syrup
  • Fill with ice to the top and embrace the dilution, but not too much ;)
  • Give it a nice rhythmic shake
  • Grab a glass (optionally, add a salt rim)
  • Top off with a nice crown of ice to the rim
  • Garnish with a lime wheel

HOW TO AGE THE PERFECT MOSCOW MULE!

The Moscow mule is a timeless classic that can be used in modern bars as a zesty alternative to the more spirit-forward cocktails you may be serving. We’ll be using gresh ginger, fresh lime peel, Tito's Handmade Vodka, fresh lime juice, Angostura Aromatic Bitters, and of course the Time & Oak Signature Whiskey Element.

  • You’ll need an infusion vessel that can hold a bit more than the whole vodka bottle
  • Chop up fresh ginger
  • Take the lime peel off of the limes
  • Take the ginger and lime peel and add them to the vessel, mix while adding
  • Add a Time & Oak Signature Whiskey Element
  • Add a whole bottle of Tito's Handmade Vodka
  • Wait and age. Continue to taste every 3-5 days until desired taste is achieved
  • Do a strained pour from the vessel into a 750 milliliters bottle
  • Get a standard copper mug with a mint sprig for garnish
  • Add 2 ounces of the your new aged vodka
  • One dash of bitters
  • 1/2 ounces of lime juice
  • Use soda or sparkling wine to get up to between 1/2 and 3/4 of the mug
  • Add ice to the brim

HOW TO AGE A PORTLAND-STYLE MANHATTAN!

As you know aging spirits and cocktails can be a long and expensive process, but with Time & Oak Signature Whiskey Elements, you can cut your time down and drastically reduce the production cost. This uses high-proof bourbon, something like a Booker’s Bourbon, maybe a Wild Turkey 101. A lovely floral sweet vermouth, something like Carpano Antica, and Peychaud’s Bitters for color and flavor. Just a touch of Cherry Heering for that extra kick that most manhattan lovers enjoy.

  • Get a 750 milliliters bottle for aging
  • Add 14 ounces of high-proof bourbon, we’ll use Booker’s. The Time & Oak Element will mellow it
  • Add 10 ounces of robust and floral Carpano Antica to add a lovely floral attribute
  • Add 15-20 shakes of Peychaud’s Bitters
  • Add 1.5 ounces of Cherry Heering
  • Add the element
  • Wait and age. Continue to taste every 3-5 days until desired taste is achieved
  • Pour 4 ounces into a mixing crystal
  • Only stir manhattans, don’t shake, as is tradition.
  • Add ice gently to not bruise the vermouth
  • Gently stir with a spoon for 15 seconds for a nice slight ice melt and chill to maintain the spirit-forward nature of this cocktail
  • Garnish with 3 Bordeaux Maraschino cherries on a pick with a nice roll for shine
