Spring is ALMOST here, and we can already taste it. As such, the Cucumber Collins is making a menu comeback!

Crafted by Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co.’s former bar creative Nick Kenna, the Cucumber Collins takes a spicy turn with the addition of a habanero simple syrup, while staying refreshing as ever with Kinsman Rakia, fresh cucumber juice and a splash of Topo Chico. It’s finished off with a light dusting of Trechas chile-sugar mix.

Come try one of these classics for yourself and stay tuned for more springtime cocktails in the coming weeks!

Signature rolled out a new cocktail menu this Autumn, we stopped by to speak with the bar creative, Isabella Morlet, about her newest Kinsman cocktail. Isabella is always creative when it comes to her cocktails and this time was no different. The Downtowner is a exceptionally delicious sherry and Kinsman cocktail that can be enjoyed by cocktail novices and master mixologists alike.

“Kinsman is one of my favorite spirits,” she says. “It has a bright approachable elegance that is prominent without over powering anything else. It goes with anything.”

She is no stranger to to the Serbian inspired apricot brandy as she featured it in three of her cocktails from the previous menu: Earnest Goes to the Southside, a local take on a classic Hemingway Daiquiri, and the Daydreamer, an apricot egg white sour, and a Brandy Alexander for dessert made with handmade cream that tops the cocktail nicely.
