    Cocktail Video of the Week: the Simple Goodness Sisters’ Jack Rose Cocktail

    The Jack Rose is a pre-prohibition (like, seriously OG) New Jersey classic cocktail we’re re-imagining to be solidly West Coast. It’s a little known drink (and surprisingly has NOTHING to do with our favorites from the Titanic) that will be widely popular with your friends once introduced. It’s fairly sweet but still pretty stiff, so it packs a pretty little punch. Speaking of punch, PUNCH describes the drink as so: According to David Embury’s The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, the Jack Rose was, during the mid-20thcentury, a pillar of basic cocktail-mixing knowledge. The origin of its name is disputed: some credit it to an early 20th-century hit man called “Bald…

    Farewell to August Cocktail: A Marionberry Mint Simple Goodness Syrup recipe

    August is waning but my thirst for a craft cocktail shared with friends isn’t. Once my mid-August birthday rounds the bend, I know summer is coming to an end. My birthday typically coincides with the Perseif meteor showers, the hottest days of the summer, and lots of days on the lake. Recently, the Pacific Northwest has seen so much summer smoke from wildfires that August has been far less enjoyable than the long, hot, lazy days of my summers’ past, and some Seattlites with hazy eyes and burning throats are praying for rain and pinning pumpkin recipes on pinterest. But not me. I believe every season is owed its time…

  • Simple Goodness Syrups: Marionberry Mint & a Garden Mule cocktail

    Simple Goodness Syrups have launched, shipped, and wowed their first customers. After a humorously inefficient first shipping process (picture 8 months pregnant Venise carrying an armful of boxes into fedex twenty minutes before closing, and the lady behind the counter looking wary at best) the first shipped bottles are in the hands of customers across the USA and that feels really, really good. We are so proud to share a taste of the Pacific Northwest summer through these first edition Simple Goodness Sister Syrup flavors. We also sold a ton of bottles at the Garlic and Goats Festival at Venise’s farm last weekend to our local community and couldn’t stop…
