The premium brand among cordial mixers.

In mid-2011, reorientation and fine-tuning of JOHN’S began after acquisition of the brand. The recipes for all of the existing flavours were thoroughly optimized. Consequently, the new JOHN’S LEMON SQUASH has become a little more full-bodied, with an added hint of sharp fruitiness. The enhanced lime flavour of the new JOHN’S LIME JUICE particularly appeals to the taste buds. The newly created JOHN’S CITRON JUICE is composed mainly of pure lemon juice, lemon pulp and orange juice, and is guaranteed to be completely free of artificial colourings or preservatives.

Genuine, natural and unique taste is absolutely guaranteed. JOHN’S is setting new standards on the bar scene and mixing it up on the cocktail market with the four flavours LIME JUICE, LEMON SQUASH, CITRON JUICE and ELDERFLOWER.

Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails Celebrates Official Launch with National Book Tour


Today, authors David Kaplan, Alex Day and Nick Fauchald announce the official launch of their national book tour for the recently announced inaugural book, Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails.  When Death & Co burst onto the scene nearly a decade ago, the establishment and unrivaled talent behind the bar revolutionized the art of drink-making, ushering in a new era of cocktail culture. Now, the Death & Co family will bring the spirit of the famed cocktail bar across the country with a series of unique pop-up experiences.


Kicking off at the Bowery Hotel in New York City on October 7th in conjunction with the official public release of the book, and in partnership with Liquor.com, the book tour will feature takeovers of the top bars in ten cities by some of the best bartenders in the business. The pages of the book will be brought to life for consumers and industry tastemakers alike in an evening of spirituous revelry, where Death & Co bartenders will create the iconic libations that have garnered them praise around the globe.


One week after the New York launch, the tour, which will be produced by Double Barrel Consulting, hops coasts to take the celebration to California at David and Alex’s own Honeycut — the elegant cocktail bar, boisterous discotheque hybrid nestled in a quiet alley in Downtown Los Angeles.  Guests will convene to toast the release of the book, enjoy bottomless cocktails and leave with their own copy of Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails. Tickets to events on the Death & Co book tour, which will make additional stops in Portland, San Diego, Washington D.C., Boston, Miami, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco and Denver, are available to the public via Eventbrite.


Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails is the official Death & Co book, and definitive guide to the contemporary craft cocktail movement. The book from the team behind one of the world’s most influential and lauded bars features hundreds of recipes for signature creations from their renowned bar Death & Co in addition to classic cocktails. It includes chapters on the theory and philosophy of drink-making, a complete guide to the spirits, tools and other ingredients needed to make a great bar, and recipes for nearly 500 iconic drinks.  Filled with beautiful, evocative photography, illustrative charts and info graphics and colorful essays about the characters from inside the bar each night, Death & Co — like its namesake bar — is bold, elegant and continues to set the pace for mixologists around the world.


Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com, and will be available beginning October 7th at Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, Books a Million, Powell’s, and on Apple, Kobo and Google Play digital platforms, at a retail price of $40.




Death & Co is the most important, influential, and oft-imitated bar to emerge from the contemporary craft cocktail movement.  Since its opening in 2006, Death & Co has been a must-visit destination for serious drinks and cocktail enthusiasts, and the winner of every major industry award, including America’s Best Cocktail Bar and Best Cocktail Menu at the Tales of the [descriptor] Cocktail convention.  Boasting a supremely talented and creative bar staff – the best and brightest in the industry – Death & Co is also the birthplace of some of the modern era’s most iconic drinks, such as the Oaxaca Old Fashioned, Naked and Famous, and the Conference.




All ticket sales are final and non-transferable.  Tickets price will only be refunded in the event of cancellation.

Alcohol Spotlight: CraftHouse Paloma Premium Cocktail


Perhaps the PERFECT TEQUILA COCKTAIL, giving the venerable margarita a run for its money.

Little is known about the historical origin of the Paloma, the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico. Some conjecture that it is named after La Paloma (“The Dove”), the popular folk song composed in the early 1860s.

Expressive blanco tequila, sourced from the Tequila Valley, is the foundation for this cocktail. We’ve created our own, all natural, grapefruit soda that leaves those commercially available in the dust. Mixed with a bit of lime juice to round everything out and you have a real crowd pleaser. A touch of kosher salt on the rim of the glass will add an epicure’s touch.

Information & Ingredients in a Charles Joly Paloma:

100% ALL NATURAL ingredients
REAL BLANCO TEQUILA from Jalisco Mexico
Pure California LIME JUICE
12.5% alc. by vol.
Gluten free
