gardencocktailsOver the past couple weeks I've been entranced 🔮by the @deadrabbitnyc cocktail book and all the stories inside. It's the perfect mix of well-researched historical cocktails, delightfully wacky ingredients, and real stories from the two Belfast boys who opened the bar here in NYC. When I was looking at reviews of the book before I bought it, one of the biggest complaints was that the cocktails take too long to make and the ingredients are obscure. That's definitely true, but I've found that a bit of creative improvisation goes a long way. You might not get the exact taste that you'd get if you ordered a drink at the Dead Rabbit, but it's still a really interesting drink and unlike other flavor combinations you've tried before. I look at the recipes in the book more like guidelines than laws- because it's rare that you're going to have bay leaf tincture on hand when you discover it in a recipe you want to try. (Ie: If you don't have raspberry cordial on hand, you can test a raspberry cordial instead.) And TEACUPS. ☕️ .
🌸 Whiskey Daisy a la Fouque 🌸
🔸.5oz raspberry cordial (I used Chambord)
🔸2 dashes orange bitters
🔸.75oz orange juice
🔸.5oz "Rhubarb Tea" liqueur from @artintheage 🔸1oz lemon juice
🔸.5oz Rabarbaro Zucca (I used a mild amaro instead)
🔸Top with soda water and fresh nutmeg
Combine all ingredients except for soda water and fresh nutmeg. Shake, strain, and serve in a tea cup filled with cracked ice. Top with grated nutmeg and soda water!
- chix.ologyHooray for the improv 👏🏽 Sounds absolutely superb!
