Miniatures are a really important part of how we think about our drinks here at Myatt's Fields Cocktails:
They are fun. They are an opportunity to try a drink you haven't had before. They easily fit into a pocket or handbag.
If you have ice and (ideally) a glass, having a miniature with you means you have everything you need. There aren't many gifts that are more fun to receive than a complete cocktail.
For the student or aficionado, they offer a chance to compare the different vermouths, sherries, spirits and bitters without spending hundreds of pounds.
The bottles are pretty, and can be used in countless ways once empty. Some of the best examples we've seen include an inkwell and a spice receptacle.
Served straight up, it will not get too warm before it is finished, and on the rocks it will not end up disappointingly dilute by the time you have got to the bottom of the glass.
A blend of tequila, sweet vermouth, and Campari. Bottled and aged for at least six weeks.
Straight from the wilds of Joshua Tree, where they don't drink gin I'm told (there is a story about this for another time) comes the Desert Negroni.
Yes, you can make a lot of fantastic drinks out of tequila mixed with fresh citrus. Yes, it is a wonderful sipping drink.
However, check out how smoky a Negroni you can make when you replace the gin with a full throttle tequila and leave it to age for six weeks. This drink has to be tried.
Pour over ice in a rocks glass and stir until freezing. Keep the ice, this is the desert. Add a slice of lime.
Contains sulphur dioxide, sulphites.
