"The Oliver" An Unclassic Negroni with Wormwood Extracts
Herb & Lou’s version of one of the world's most perfect cocktails integrates Campari’s bitter aroma of herbs and spicy cherry-orange flavour with the sweet tang of London Dry Gin. That convergence is amplified, enriched and modernized by a strong focus on the fundamental Wormwood characteristics of Torino (red) vermouth.
Ingredients: Water, invert sugar, chrystalline fructose, natural flavours, fruit and vegetable juice for colour, citric acid, beta-carotene for colour, Wormwood powder, extract, sodium, benzoate and potassium sorbate (preservative), quinine.
"The Cooper" Blood Orange Ginger Old Fashioned
A close friend to Herb, Cooper was often the life of the party. Many times, he would bust out and literally howl at the moon. His fierce loyalty to Herb was apparent and he may have been at every party Herb & Lou threw. He had a mane of messy reddish brown hair and if he wasn't by Herb's side or sniffing around for treats, you'd find him curled up sleeping off the fun - somewhere.
The beautiful blood orange fruit is typically less acidic and sweeter than other oranges. Their raspberry-like tartness acts as the perfect base in Herb & Lou’s take on the original Whiskey Cocktail, with classic ingredients like Brandied Cherries and Artisanal Bitters. The addition of extracted Ginger adds a unique complexity to this time-honoured favorite which is never sweet, always smart. We bet you can’t drink just one.
"The Cecile" Cucumber & Watermelon Margarita with Clover Honey & Thyme
One of the quirkiest things about Cecile was that she called everything with alcohol in it “hooch.” It didn’t matter whether it was beer, wine or a cocktail, it was all hooch! Cecile always seemed to be flying off to somewhere and yet still found time to be one of the highlights of Herb & Lou’s parties. With her electric smile and bohemian air, we suspect (but can’t confirm) that Herb & Lou both had a bit of a crush on Cecile – just don’t tell our grandmothers. The sweet flavour of Watermelon is the perfect counterpoint to the green, grassy astringency and crispness of Cucumbers. Thyme warms the fruits while the Clover Honey’s sweet flowery flavour rounds-out this cocktail. With its own origins in hot climates, Tequila helps this blend refreshingly delight, far surpassing a mere Margarita.
"The Clyde" Peach with Benedictine Inspired Herbs & Artisanal Bitters
Lou saved Clyde’s life during the war and ever since, Clyde went everywhere that Lou did. Clyde had a quiet confidence and always seemed to live in the moment without a care in the world. Having grown up on a peach farm in Georgia, Clyde had a charming southern drawl and would call every woman "his peach". ‘The Clyde’ was one of Herb & Lou’s earliest concoctions and was a tribute to Clyde’s friendship. According to family lore, it captures his quiet sophistication perfectly. Having its heyday in the 1930’s at the storied Russian Tea Room in Manhattan, the first Vodka-Based cocktail to make it in the United States was the Gypsy Queen. Originally, this cocktail utilized Benedictine, a liqueur made of herbs, roots and sugar and based on a recipe by Benedictine Monks in the 15th Century. Here, those raw herbs have been coupled with a touch of Peach, in lieu of sugar. Hand-crafted bitters and a slight citrus zest elevate the Vodka, and your experience, to tantalizing, exciting and surprising heights. The Clyde will make you wonder why you ever settled for cranberry juice or club soda.

Smoky Habanero Blend (Mild, "Yeah right!): This blend of Habanero, Guajillo, Jalapeno, Ancho, Pasilla and Chipotle peppers is hot... Well to some anyway!
Hellthy Hot Sauce Says "If you have tried our “HOT" Pompous Ass Hot Sauce and you're trying our "Mild" Pompous Ass Hot Sauce for the first time, you know this sauce is not up to our standards. Yes, we admit it. This was our first attempt at making a Hot Sauce. But when we started getting responses like "This stuff is amazing! My sister, boyfriend, dog, whatever... puts it on everything". We knew we had gone horribly wrong. While this sauce is extremely flavourful, quite honestly it is an embarrassment to call it a "Hot Sauce". At best we could call it "Mild"."
Devilishly HOT (You Asked For It!!): This blend of Carolina Reaper, Bhut Jolokla (Ghost), Habanero, Jalapeno, Guajillio, Chipotle, Ancho and Pasilla peppers is VERY hot... it will make you cry!
Hellthy Hot Sauce Says"Our "Devilishly Hot" came out of desperation. Our founder was out shopping for his favourite libation when a lovely dark haired woman walked by, smiled and said "Hi El Diablo". As she walked away, he wondered what that was all about. Later we found our founders image defaced. Knowing he would be furious, we told him that it was for a new hot sauce with twice as much Carolina Reaper and Ghost pepper. He loved the idea. To this day we still don't know who defaced the image. All we know is that we came up with a "REALLY HOT" Hot sauce.
