Mixing It Up With Slow & Low
As a company that proudly hand-makes all of our goods at our Laboratory in Brooklyn, we love to experiment with different ingredients and formulas. We're always trying to find ways to create something amazing from a handful of premium ingredients, but this passion of ours isn't limited to creating grooming products and general goods.
When discussing a fun collaboration with our friends at Slow & Low, we decided to channel our love for formulation into a cocktail. The best things in life are meant to be shared, so we thought we'd share the recipe with you.
Of course, we started our experiment with Slow & Low and then opted to see what kind of floral notes we could utilize to infuse a little bit of O'Douds flavor into an already fantastic drink. We came up with a cocktail we're calling, The Rock 'n' Rose. Like many of the aromas that characterize our products, it's a unique combination of spicy, sweet, and floral notes. We thought to ourselves, "How do we capture the rock and roll vibe that we share with Slow & Low while also adding our passion for all things natural and botanical into the mix?" The Rock 'n' Rose was the result. We had a lot of fun making it and enjoying it together, and we're pretty sure you'll do the same.
