28 Oct Cocktail: Instant Crush
Inspired by the flavours and ingredients in our Bittered Sling relationship. Jonathan developed a bitters after my personality, the “Moondog”, and in return, I have developed a cocktail inspired by his favourite flavours, creating a perfectly balanced elixir that we instantly lust after.
1.00 oz Don Julio Reposado Tequila
0.50 oz Alipus Mezcal
0.50 oz Fernet Branca
0.50 oz Okanagan Spirits Blackcurrant Liqueur
0.75 oz Martini Blanco Vermouth
2 dashes Bittered Sling Plum & Rootbeer Bitters
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, add ice and stir until well chilled and diluted – about 15-20 seconds. Using a julep strainer, pour over fresh ice in an old fashioned glass. Garnish with a long peel of orange, pinched into a heart-shape onto the top of the glass, held together with a thin cinnamon twig.
