26 Oct Cocktail: Fox Force Five
This five component stirred cocktail takes its name from the pilot project in Pulp Fiction. The ‘Fox Force Five’ was a deadly assassination squad, comprised of female assassins, who were as beautiful as they were dangerous.
1.50 oz Maker’s Mark Bourbon
0.50 oz Laphroaig 10 YO Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
0.25 oz Alvear Amontillado Sherry
0.50 oz Bols Apricot Liqueur
0.50 oz Green Chartreuse (spiced liqueur)
2 dashes Bittered Sling Clingstone Peach 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, serve neat in a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a long, thin twist of lemon, expressing the oils over the top of the glass, and then dropping inside.
