Recipe: Last Word

Recipe: Last Word

The featured cocktail of Episode 45: Violence in my mouth, is the Last Word cocktail. While this cocktail packs a wallop, I highly recommend it for those that are looking to expand their pallet outside of spritzers or Tiki. I also recommend upping the gin to even out the sweetness.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 oz. Gin (I recommend 1 full oz.)
  • 3/4 oz. Green Chartreuse
  • 3/4 oz. Maraschino Liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • Garnish: cherry

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake for 10-12 seconds, or until shaker is frosty. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.  

Recipe: The Cardinale

Recipe: The Cardinale

The featured cocktail for Episode 42: Betty Crocker’s Box, is the Negroni variation, the Cardinale. This is part of my pursuit of making myself like Campari. I have to say, this was my favorite Campari cocktail yet. I think it’s working!

Ingredients:

1 oz. Gin 
1 oz. Campari 
1 oz. Dry Vermouth 
Orange peel for garnish

Directions:

Stir the gin, Campari, and vermouth with ice in an Old-Fashioned glass, then garnish with an orange wedge/twist. Enjoy! Easy peasy!

This was a good cocktail, but not one that highlights the Crème de Cacao.

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 3/4 ounces sweet vermouth, we used Dolan
  • 1/4-ounce Crème de Cacao, white (I realize I took the picture with the wrong type of crème de cacao derp)
  • 1/4-ounce Fernet Branca
  • dash orange bitters
  • Garnish: lemon twist

Steps:

  1. Add all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes.
  2. Stir until mixing glass is frosty.
  3. Strain into a chilled coup.

Enjoy!

Recipe: Upside-Down Martini

Recipe: Upside-Down Martini

The Upside-Down Martini is featured in Episode 32: Kill your idols (aka Julia Child). It was a favorite of Julia’s, and some say she even invented it. I know one thing, this really turned me on to Dry Vermouth and I’ve been drinking Upside-Down Martinis and Vermouth spritzers ever since. 😉

And for the love of God people, PUT YOUR VERMOUTH IN THE REFRIGERATOR.

Recipe

5-parts dry vermouth (Julia liked Noilly Prat, but I used Dolan)

1-part gin (I used Plymouth)

ice

lemon twist

Ingredients

In a white wine glass filled with ice (or not, your call) stir together the gin and vermouth. Garnish with a twist of lemon and toast to something fancy.

Recipe: Alaskan Iced Tea

Recipe: Alaskan Iced Tea

Move over Long Island, a new, highly alcoholic, iced tea is in town! The Alaskan Iced Tea is the featured cocktail in “Episode 23: Moose may not be viewed from an airplane” aka Alaskan Cuisine. We absolutely loved this cocktail. As I say on the show, I subbed out the sour mix (because EW) and added fresh lime and lemon juice. I also cut back on the blue curacao for my cocktail as I don’t like stuff that is too sweet. Aimee had the full sugar version and she loved it. Definitely recommend making this one!

Glass from Godinger. Straw from Surfside Sips.

Ingredients:
2 oz. Blue Curacao (use 1 oz. if drink is too sweet)
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
.5 oz. Gin
.5 oz. Rum
.5 oz. Vodka
Sprite or any lemon-lime soda

Directions:
Combine all ingredients except for the soda in a shake with ice. Shake 8-10 seconds. Strain into a large Collin’s or hurricane style glass over ice. Top with Sprite. Enjoy!
