Seventies Redeemed

30ml (2oz) Redemption Bourbon
2-3ml (1/2 tsp) Grand Marnier 150
2-3ml (1/2 tsp) amaretto
Dash Urban Moonshine maple butters

Gently swirl in a tasting/nosing glass.

If you have any of the Grand Marnier Cuvée du Cent Cinquantenaire (150th anniversary) left (bottled in 1977 and nearly impossible to find except at auction), you probably are savoring every last drop.

Rye and Root

60 ml (2 oz) George Dickel Rye
15 ml (1/2 oz) Art in the Age Root
2 dashes Urban Moonshine orange bitters

Shake gently with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of orange or a brandied cherry.

--
Art in the Age makes some very creative liquors. These are essentially botanicals mixed with neutral spirits. In other words, this is a "gin," very broadly speaking. However, there is no hint of juniper or other traditional gin botanicals in Root. Its ingredients include birch bark, smoked black tea, cinnamon, wintergreen, spearmint, clove, anise, orange, lemon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom, and cane sugar. Amusingly, there are no actual roots in Root!

It's Green

What’s this? First drink attempt using the Skittles-infused Vodka from my dear friends Thatch and Dawn! Starting simple, ¾ oz of green Skittles Vodka (lemon-lime?), ¾ oz Vodka. Shake with ice, strain into cocktail glass and garnish with a lime. Boy, that lime barely looks green compared to the Skittles! Tastes like, well, Skittles…

Salty Dog

1 ½ oz Vodka
5 oz Grapefruit Juice
¼ tsp salt

Add all ingredients to a glass filled with ice and stir. Garnish with a sprig of parsley. A great brunch drink, especially for those of you who don’t like tomato juice. (And I know there is no parsley in the photo, but I was fresh out!)

Vincow Somba

1 oz Vodka
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Pineapple juice.

Mix in highball glass.

This very simple recipe makes an enjoyable sipping drink. A bit fruity, but not overpowering. I have no ideas
about the origin of the name or the drink. Do you?
Drop me a note if you know where this came from.

Okay, we are getting back to the early years of my old Friday Night Cocktails tumblr. This one was posted 5 years ago. Fair warning that the quality of the mixology and of the photography is going down as we go back in time. But don't worry! Once I've got all those posted, I'll start posting some new recipes.

Dark and Stormy, redux

1 ½ oz Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
3 oz Ginger Beer
Lime

Here's how to make a Dark and Stormy that really looks dark and stormy. It's hard to get a good photo of it, but you'll end up with a black cloud of rum floating over the ginger beer, with dark wisps drifting down into the fog.

Pour ginger beer over ice in a low-ball glass. Float rum on ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge. Serve with a cocktail straw, as you'll need something to stir it with!
