BG Reynolds makes it Perfectly!

BG REYNOLDS AND PERFECT CO LAUNCH TIKI PACK

BG Reynolds and Perfect Company have launched the new Tiki Pack of over 20 classic and new cocktail recipes today, available for users of the Perfect Drink app and Perfect Drink Pro scale. Each recipe features drink descriptions, history, and gorgeous photography, all combined with the ease of use of a simple app, available for iOS and Android. To get the Tiki Pack or simply check the recipes, please visit the BG Reynolds Tiki Collection on the Perfect Company site.

To make world-class cocktails with Perfect Drink Pro, users place the included shaker or any drink container on the wireless scale, follow the onscreen pouring instructions and watch as a virtual glass fills up in real time on their smart device. Perfect Drink Pro knows the density of each ingredient and senses the perfect pour.  The app alerts users when to stop pouring and even compensates for over-pouring by instantly readjusting the drink's other ingredients. 

The Perfect Drink app includes more than 400 drink recipes searchable by category, liquor or other key ingredient, and users can also add their own recipes.  Other app features allow users to adjust a recipe's serving size, create custom cocktail menus for any gathering, and save drink variations along with an original photo. A virtual Cabinet allows users to catalog on-hand ingredients, generate a list of cocktails that can be made using those ingredients, and also make a shopping list of any missing ingredients. 

Perfect Drink Pro includes a stainless steel wireless scale (Bluetooth 4.0), free app (downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play), 750ml stainless steel shaker and device stand.  Requires three AAA batteries (not included).  MSRP: $99.99.

Entertaining at your home bar

Portland Monthly recently wrote a nice article about home bars, portraying some of the more well finished ones around here in Portland. Personally, I'm still setting mine up, though, is a great home bar ever truly finished? BG Reynolds syrups can certainly find a space at any home bar, whether you're slinging scorpions with Orgeat, or relaxing by the mahogany and enjoying an old-fashioned with Rich Demerara, my products are there for your ease of use!

I took my products to Koopman Ostbo, a local branding firm I'm working with, to give the syrups and mixers a test drive outside of my usual tikified userbase. There was some great feedback, everyone loved the quality of the syrups and mixers, and got a bit creative. Here's some of what we discovered and enjoyed.

One of the most popular uses was just adding a dash of Lime Cordial to soda water. It's refreshing, the lime POPS with real key lime flavor, and it's non-alcoholic, so everyone from the designated driver to the 5 year old who just wants something tasty can enjoy. This works with just about each syrup, my personal favorites being Paradise Blend for a NA tropical, or Divine Vanilla, which makes a killer cream soda.

Another riff that worked well was simply making an old-fashioned. BG Reynolds syrups make fantastic modifiers, and Cinnamon, Rich Demerara and Vanilla work particularly well when pairing against Rye or Bourbon. As for me, you know I'm a rum guy and a cinnamon junkie, so I like to make a Rum old-fashioned with a nice El Dorado 15, and just a splash of cinnamon syrup and bitters, just enough to give it some backbone and amp up the flavors.

Of course, for home entertaining, sometimes you want to play bartender, and sometimes you just want to enjoy the company of your friends. That's where the mixers really come into play, where the juice has already been squeezed, the syrup cooked, the exotic bitters added, so you can just splash in your booze of choice and enjoy!

Now, what if you were to put the syrups and mixers together at the table? That's right... Passion Fruit Mai Tai! A Limey Zombie! The combination is all up to your imagination, and is a great way to spark creativity and conversation among your guests. To make this easier, I've now got 5oz bottles available for you to taste, try, and hopefully come back for more of the bigger bottles! The 5oz bottles are exclusive to the BG Reynolds website, and are of limited stock, so don't delay, order today!
