Simon’s Picks… Smuggler’s Den

Alright, so this week my pick o’ the bunch is a little bit of shameless self promotion for a wee idea the team here at Spanton Media came up with for Sydney BarShow in September. We’ve decided to create an all new area dedicated to the industry’s hooch snipers, still-whackers and law-loose-liquor-lovers called the ‘Smuggler’s Den’.

CLASSIC:The Scofflaw Cocktail

The Scofflaw Cocktail, is a concoction that has disappeared off the radar a bit, but is certainly a tipple worthy of a whirl. Fortunately the origins and formula of this drink are no secret. It was first compounded at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, 1924, during the height of American Prohibition. Ironically, if it wasn’t for a ban on the consumption of alcoholic beverages this drink may have never existed.
