Stroo Olofsson, and his wife Julia, created Blade Hair to be a different salon experience and they got that right. Where else can you get an Old-Fashioned while having a cut and color?

Our Cocktail of the Week is The Name Of The Rose.

  • 50ml of Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon
  • 25ml Luxardo Maraschino
  • three dashes of Abbott's Bitters (Angostura will do in a pinch)
  • an oversized ice cube made from fresh brewed rose bud tea
  • a dried rose bud garnish

Pour ingredients directly into an Old Fashioned tumbler, place the rose bud ice and swirl as one would a whisky, then garnish with a rose bud. As the ice melts, the rose flavours will increase and enhance the cherry notes of Maraschino as well as the floral notes of the bourbon

Always remember the wise words of Oscar Wilde, “All things in moderation, including moderation,” and always drink responsibly!
