Social Recipes: Is She Weird

Social Recipes: Is She Weird

It's no secret that we love The Pixies-- many of the specialty cocktails on our menu are named for their songs. One of our favorites is the 1990 classic "Is She Weird," a great little track from the Bossanova album. It also makes a great little drink, with vodka, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Crispin cider, sour, lime juice, and a cherry garnish. It's little sweet, a little sour, and definitely weird. Next time you get the craving and you can't get to The Social, use this handy recipe and video tutorial to make your own at home, preferably with your Bossanova record spinning.

Social Recipes: Ramos Gin Fizz

Social Recipes: Ramos Gin Fizz

Henry C. Ramos invented the Ramos gin fizz in 1888 at his bar, the Imperial Cabinet Saloon on Gravier Street in New Orleans. The drink quickly became so popular that many bars serving them hired teams of young men to shake the fizzes so the many customers ordering them wouldn't have long waits. Fortunately The Social has gotten the Ramos gin fizz down pat, and it isn't the trendiest drink in the country at the height of county fair season, so you won't have long to wait if you order one at the bar. Even better, use this helpful video to learn the recipe and technique for making your own at hom...
