26 Oct Cocktail: Instant Crush
The “Instant Crush” is inspired by the flavours and ingredients in our Bittered Sling relationship. Chovancek developed a bitters after Mote’s personality, the “Moondog”, and in return, Mote has developed a cocktail inspired by Chovancek’s favourite flavours, creating a perfectly balanced elixir that we instantly lust after.
1.00 oz Reposado Tequila
0.50 oz Espadin Mezcal
0.50 oz Fernet Branca
0.50 oz Cassis Blackcurrant Liqueur
0.75 oz Cocchi Americano White Vermouth
2 dashes Bittered Sling Moondog 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.
