2017 LOUNGE COCKTAIL SERIES-- THE ORIGINAL "PEACHEY PIKE COCKTAIL"

Posted by

The "Peachey Pike Cocktail" is an Original BarBack Company cocktail made with mostly New York State Products, such as White Pike Whiskey and Saratoga Sparkling Water. In addition, we mix in Luxardo syrup, fresh orange juice squeeze, lemon juice, and peach schnapps. This Lounge Cocktail is served on the rocks in a chilled snifter glass (as pictured above) or a chilled martini glass, if desired. The designated garnish is a single Luxardo cherry, an orange wheel and fresh "lime grass zest". Garnishes made using The BarBack Tool patented garnish knife and zester.

What is a Lounge Cocktail?

Lounge Cocktails, fall under the relatively new-age category of "Craft Cocktails", and can be loosely defined as any type of craft or classic "sipping" cocktail that is typically enjoyed while sitting and conversing with others in a relaxed atmosphere or in a "chill", comfortable environment.

This is where the term "Cocktail Lounge" came about in the early 1930's, when referring to popular, pricey high-end taverns and exclusive parlors, pubs or "lounging" hotel bars. In 2017, most often these craft cocktails can be found and enjoyed at trendy cocktail bars, gastro-eateries, retro-speakeasys, martini lounges and, of course, at cocktail lounges.

Fresh mixed artisinal cocktails are not exactly a modern phenomenon. In fact, it’s a tradition that goes back as far as formal fermentation. Even in the Iliad, Homer wrote of epic heroes drinking wine mixed with goat cheese and ground barley. That may have been the first Lounge Cocktail, according to this definition.
