Tea Cup Gin’s mixologists share a passion for creating original musical cocktails under the influence of an eclectic blend of early 20th century genres, including jazz standards, torch songs, ragtime and delta blues, tin pan alley classics, chanson, cabaret, bossa, tango, and show tunes. Anchored by two acoustic guitars, upright bass, and emotive vocals– with occasional guests on percussion, trombone, trumpet, violin and sax– Tea Cup Gin serves up a uniquely authentic approach to the great American jazz tradition, with a chaser of mirth.
Why “Tea Cup Gin”? During prohibition, speakeasies often served bootleg gin from ordinary tea cups to hide what was inside. Although our original songs may look innocent enough on the outside, they contain a deliciously intoxicating mixture of musical influences. So “Tea Cup Gin” evokes vintage jazz, and is catchier than saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover.”
