The KaTom Sling: KaTom’s Very Own Signature Cocktail

Being the foodies that we are. It’s only appropriate that we have our very own cocktail. We wanted it to be representative of our brand but easy enough to replicate at home. To ensure the very best outcome, we sought out the professional services of Nicole Anhalt. A craft cocktail expert specializing in scratch made cocktails, we knew she was just the gal for the job.

Our request included the following:

Dear Nicole,

We are looking to craft a signature drink for the KaTom Restaurant Supply brand. Being that we are located in Tennessee, we hope that it will include something related to our roots. If possible, we would also love to include the color red – a nod to our CEO’s signature red lipstick and the prominent color in our brand’s color palette. Our cocktail should be easy to replicate and garnished with a little extra touch.


The KaTom Team


Boy did she outdo herself. The cocktail is splendid and we’re thrilled to share it with each of you. So, here’s to Nicole, the KaTom Sling, and all who come to love it. Cheers!
