The old fashioned cocktail came about in the 1880’s. Although, similar versions made of bitters, sugar, spirits, and water are dated back to the early 1800’s. It was typically a morning “hair of the dog” type of cocktail. There are a lot of versions of this time tried classic but I prefer to stay to […]
Have I ever mentioned how much I love Fall cocktails! The warm spices and rich flavors are just feel good tastes for the season. And nothing says Fall more than a chai tea latte… well, except for maybe a pumpkin latte! This is a cocktail I will be serving up on Thanksgiving that is sure […]
I’ve been working diligently the past month and a half on a new Fall Cocktail Menu for Kapow Noodle Bar and it’s finally rolling out tonight. I know, it’s a tough job but someone’s gotta do it! 🙂 It has been a labor of love and I am giddy excited to see customers order from […]

This cocktail is a take from a cocktail that originated at the Shady Lady, a speakeasy in Sacramento. Nothing too crazy and super refreshing. The presentation can be killer too if you get it right. We had to use chopsticks at Kapow to get the cucumbers to stick to the side of the glass, but […]
Grandma’s garden always seemed to have fresh herbs no matter the season. Fragrant, full and beautiful. At least that’s they way I remember it… She could cook, heal wounds, tell stories, and make a mean meal from that garden. This cocktail is an ode to grandmas everywhere. Simple, but sure to please. And if you […]
Ok, I’ll be honest… This recipe was not my creation BUT I think I did perfect it! And I actually wrote all of the steps out in detail so it can be replicated to perfection. I stumbled across the smoked lemonade recipe by accident on this website, but I did jazz it up a little […]
