Radio Imbibe Episode 15: Tiffanie Barriere

Atlanta bartender and cocktail educator and Imbibe 75 People to Watch, Tiffanie Barriere, talks with us about the importance of connecting history with today’s cocktail culture.

Radio Imbibe is the audio home of Imbibe magazine. In each episode, we dive into liquid culture, exploring the people, places, and flavors of the drinkscape through conversations about cocktails, coffee, beer, spirits, and wine.

This year’s Imbibe 75 highlights people, businesses, and organizations working to build a better drinks world. The cover of this year’s Imbibe 75 issue features Atlanta bartender Tiffanie Barriere, who first appeared in Imbibe while helming the renowned airport bar One Flew South. More recently, she’s combined her bartending skills with her gift for communicating and educating, particularly about the deep connection between Black history and cocktail history.  She shares these stories through her work as a cocktail educator and consultant, and on Instagram as The Drinking Coach. For this episode, she talks about the importance of connecting history with today’s cocktail culture, and she shares a recipe for an Agricole Old Fashioned. You can also click here to read more about Barriere.

Agricole Old Fashioned

2 oz. aged rum agricole (Barriere uses Rhum Clement Select Barrel)
1 tsp. brown sugar
2 dashes Angostura bitters
3-4 dried lavender buds

Tools: barspoon, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: orange twist

In a mixing glass, add the sugar, bitters, and lavender buds, along with 1 tsp. of water, and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the rum and several ice cubes and stir to chill, then double strain into a glass holding one large ice cube (or several smaller cubes). Express the oil from an orange twist over the cocktail, then use as garnish.
