Not so colorful it is, the Mule's Hind Leg, but its combination of ingredients is so delicate you definitely want to try this cocktail anyway.⠀
The base is a mix of gin and apple brandy. We used applejack, but a nice Calvados would also work brilliantly. To bring some bitterness and sweetness at the same time both Benedictine liqueur and apricot brandy is added. Finally maple syrup is used rather than simple syrup. This is actually quite nice as maple syrup doesn't only contributes with sugar, but also with a deep earthy flavor that complements the apple and apricot in this cocktail in a really nice way.⠀
1 oz gin⠀
1 oz apple brandy⠀
1/3 oz Benedictine liqueur⠀
1/3 oz apricot brandy⠀
1/3 oz maple syrup⠀
Stir all ingredients with fresh ice, strain and pour⠀
If you google the recipe for this cocktail you will find there are some variations, particularly when it comes to the ratios between the used spirits. Some recipes call for more Benedictine, other use less maple syrup but maybe more apricot brandy instead. The recipe featured above is from Robyn M. Feller's book The Complete Bartender published 1990, hence giving this post kind of a retro-feel.⠀
Making cocktails at home can be frustrating, especially when starting out. I remember feeling like I needed to go out and buy a full bar's worth of bottles and ingredients in order to do things right. But you don't.
Check out my first post under the "Home Bar" section on my website (link in bio). Here I'll be sharing all kinds of tips and ideas for the home bartender and casual mixologist 🍸😎
Also, what drink am I making here? 🤔
I'm calling this one: The Red Keep:
2 oz @mezcalunion silver Mezcal
1 oz lime
1/2 oz @liberandco pineapple gum syrup
1/2 oz @thebigoliqueur ginger liqueur
1/2 oz @aperolusa Aperol
Smokey and fruity and rich, layered and complex. Mezcal loves tropical fruit flavors, something the drinks at @copycatco taught me. And I just restocked a bottle of Aperol, so I'm pouring it into everything these days, since it's a super easy way to add extra complexity to any drink with notes of gently bitter citrus.
#hubbiepost We may not be able to purchase Zucca in MN, but that doesn't mean we can't go elsewhere to access this delicious amaro. Tonight's cocktail owes it's flavorful complexity to this wonderful amaro (but don't take my word for it...)
Zucca For Love
✅ 1oz Zucca Rabarbaro Amaro
✅ 1oz Del Maguey VIDA Mezcal
✅ .5oz House Vanilla Syrup
✅ .5oz Fresh Lime
✅ .5oz Passionfruit Syrup (or .75 Passionfruit puree)
Method: Shake with ice; strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish Option: Dehydrated Lime Wheel
This #amaroweek recipe just screams "eclipse cocktail" with that dark-centered garnish; love it! This is a seemingly simple sour recipe out of the #Amarobook by @btparsons that is anything but; so good!
