One of the first things I did after graduating from bartending school was to subscribe to all major spirits and/wine magazines. Why?
I have to be submerged into this craft in order to master this craft. So as I read my first issue of Chilled Magazine on my iPad I read about contest hosted by Perfect Purée and Chilled Magazine offering FREE samples to bartenders, food service personnel, etc. Yes, this was me now thanks to ABC Bartending! I waited patiently over the two days that it took to receive my 8 Free samples. My selections: White Peach Purée, Caramelized Pineapple Concentrate, Mojito Concentrate, Sweet Hibiscus, Lychee, Prickly Pear Purée, Green Apple Purée and Passion Fruit Concentrate it took me a few days to figure out which Purée’s I wanted mix and master first. I also used my husband as my taste tester and 1/2 way through the 2nd cocktail Caz’ Cocktail challenge (competing with myself) he was perfectly passed out from my concoctions. We believe that you never leave a man down on Sunday the same held true for cocktails. Leave no drink behind. Below are the cocktails that I created with vivid and lively flavors from the Perfect Purée.
