Jeremiah Weed Whiskey T-Shirt Design & Cocktail Recipes Fri, 27 Feb 2015 13:52:23 +0000 Earlier this week, we talked about the Jeremiah Weed Whiskey T-Shirt Design Competition and how excited we were to be a part of it. Well, it’s time to unveil our final design, along with our three Jeremiah Weed cocktail recipes. Both our design and our cocktail recipes are inspired by old school magic. Back when magic shows were one of the main forms of entertainment. We got our inspiration from those old school posters that promoted magic shows.


All of these drinks include Jeremiah Weed’s new line of whiskeys – Cinnamon Whiskey, Sarsaparilla Whiskey, and Spiced Whiskey.

Old Fashioned Magic
2 oz Jeremiah Weed Sarsaparilla
2 dashes bitters
Sugar cube
Dash of water
Garnish with orange slice/maraschino cherry

1 oz Jeremiah Weed Spice
1 oz Jeremiah Weed Sarsaparilla
5 oz Ginger Beer
Garnish with lime wedge

Man on Fire
2 oz Jeremiah Weed Cinnamon
1 oz Apple Schnapps
4 oz Lemon Lime Soda

And now our t-shirt design. This is something that we take very seriously because, after all, this is what we do. We have built a reputation over the last couple of years of putting together some of the coolest t-shirt designs out there. We think that this design, inspired by both Jeremiah Weed and old school magic, fits that mold.



Thanks so much to Michael Reuter, who put together this design. He is also responsible for the Cats, Cards, and Tops t-shirt designs. All of those shirts are available for sale at the Strait Pinkie Store. We also have a few more designs that Michael put together that will be available soon.

If our shirt is selected as the winner, we will get a bunch of these printed and have them available for readers and listeners of the Sunday Morning Hangover with that airs on ESPN 680 in Louisville from 10 to noon every Sunday.

Stay tuned.

Jeremiah Weed Whiskey T-Shirt Design Competition Wed, 25 Feb 2015 23:12:26 +0000 T-Shirts are what we do at Strait Pinkie, so when Jeremiah Weed asked us to be a part of their T-Shirt Design Competition, it was an absolute no-brainer. At Strait Pinkie, we pride ourselves on the fact that our shirts are designed in Kentucky and made in the USA. Just like that Pinkie Shirt that you are rocking right now, Jeremiah Weed is also designed in Kentucky, but I think the proper term is actually distilled.

As a part of the competition, we were asked to come up with a creative t-shirt design that represents the uniqueness of Jeremiah Weed and highlights each of their new line of whiskeys, each of which were crafted with hand selected secret spices last fall. Those three lines of whiskeys – Cinnamon Whiskey, Sarsaparilla Whiskey, and Spiced Whiskey.


On Friday, we will also be revealing three unique drink recipes that we have put together using each of these three whiskeys.

But, before we get to Friday, we thought it would be cool to provide you with a sneak peak at our t-shirt design process. We have some of the best designers in the business and this is the work that we analyze over and over again prior to getting to the final product.

We wanted to go old school with our design. As we began to think about old school ideas, we kept going back to old boxing and magic posters. We thought that these designs really portrayed what Jeremiah Weed is all about. Following design after design and many different thoughts, we decided to go in the route of magic.

And this is what we came up with.

Here’s “Drink the Weed” as if it is protruding from the magician’s smoke.


And the magician.


In the final product, the magician will split the words, “Drink the Weed”.

We are really excited about this contest and have enjoyed the design process. We look forward to unveiling our final design on Friday, along with our three magic-themed Jeremiah Weed cocktail recipes.

Give each of Jeremiah Weed’s new line of whiskeys a shot.
