18 Dec Snowbird
by Kate Bushel, Beverage Director Barrocco Goup, Montreal
Serving Glass: rocks glass.
Garnishes: orange zest.
Recipe (for two):
2.00 oz / 60 mL Canadian Rye Whisky (like Lot 40)
2.00 oz / 60 mL Cuban aged dark rum (like Havana Club 7)
0.50 oz / 15 mL orgeat (like Marie Brizard Orgeat)
4 dashes Bittered Sling Moondog Latin bitters
How to prepare: Incorporate the spirits, syrup and Moondog Latin bitters in a mixing glass. Fill with ice and stir for 20 seconds. Strain in an ice-filled rocks glass. Express the citrus oils from an orange zest and use for garnish.
Flavour Profile: feisty / robust / spirit-forward
Inspiration: A “snowbird” is a person who migrates from the colder northern parts of the Americas to warmer southern locales during the winter months. This is an ode to them and their winter getaway.
Batching / group party tips: Easy to scale. You can easily mix the ingredients in advance (up to 24hrs prior) and shake just before serving. (Measure a portion of about 4.00 oz per person when serving).
The bitters work well because…. it ties in with the natural spices from the rum and rye whisky.
