Last Family Standing 1½ oz Chopin Rye Vodka ¾ oz Strawberry-Pinkpeppercorn infused Cocchi Americano* ½ oz Cappelletti Aperitivo ¼ oz Fino Sherry 2 spitzes of Scrappy’s Black Lemon Bitters Add all ingredients except the bitters into the large part of a mixing tin. Fill with ice and throw the cocktail between the large and small container by holding the ice back with a stemmed Hawthorne strainer. Throw the drink between the two five times, then strain it into a well-chilled cocktail glass. (You could also stir the cocktail softly.) Mist the bitters across the cocktail and garnish with a fresh lemon peel and strawberry slice. Chopin is known for being the last family-owned vodka brand in Poland. Beyond that, they are a luxury vodka brand focusing on a single grain in each expression. I was inspired by the Rye Vodka’s touch of spice, nice body, and crisp and clean finish. I built a spirit-forward drink to honor the vodkas nuance of aromatic rye. The fruitiness of strawberries and the kick of pink peppercorn blend wisely with a bittersweet aperitivo and dry sherry. The finish of lemon bitters mist lets the cocktail begin fresh, with bitters notes. As you enjoy the cocktail, it becomes softer and sweeter. The throwing technique gives a perfect balance of chilled and diluted while maintaining the body and mouthfeel of the drink. This is a luxurious sip for the Last Family Standing. #vodka #chopin #strawberry #red #bitters #sip #cocktailoftheday #cocktailrecipe #drinkpic #drinkphotography #garnish #tw50bc #imbibegram

DIRTY CHAIXACA Mezcal Joven Aditi Chai Mix Fresh Guatemalan Espresso Sweet Vanilla Lactic Cream Olorosso Sherry Chocolate Mole Bitters Fresh lemongrass & coffee beans to garnish The lemongrass and ginger in the chai accent the fresh citrus and herbal notes in the mezcal. The Guatemalan coffee has notes of cocoa and nuts which complement the smoke of the mezcal and the Sherry and bitters. Sweetness from a creamy, salted and acid balanced sweet cream sends this bad boy over the top. This a the dirty chai from beyond this realm. #chai #espresso #dirtychai #chaitea #coffee #coffeecocktail #mezcal #coffeeholic #cocktailoftheday

COCKTAIL PREPARATION First prepare the coffee as an espresso pull, from a machine or an aeropress. Add all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice, best to use a few small cubes and a large cube. Tightly secure the shaker, and shake for 12 seconds. Start slow and be cautious if the espresso is still warm, it will cause some expansion within the shaker. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail coupe ( 7 oz capacity ). Garnish with fresh orange zest. COFFEE PREPARATION Use a city to city plus roasted single origin Ethiopian coffee. Grind 18 grams for an espresso machine and pull the shot. You can also use an aeropress. Use 18 grams ground a bit coarser than espresso. Add to the aeropress, add 92 grams of water off the boil (1 min after boiling). Let it steep 1 and a half minutes and than press the coffee Use as soon as possible for the best aroma, flavor and texture. #licor43bbchallenge #licor43bb23 #licor43 #coffee #coffeecocktail #coffeedrinker #drinkcoffee #cocktails #craftcocktail

NEW “FRENCH” SOUR 2 oz Cognac ¾ oz Lemon Juice ⅔ oz Peach Syrup Top with Red Wine Foam I love pairing Cognac and stone fruits, they always seem to blend in harmony.

TINY FRENCH 75 Just a reminder that I love tiny cocktails. I’m not a big drinker and shooting tiny cocktails means less waste. Also, if you normally drink one drink, you could enjoy three tiny cocktails of different varieties! Uhhhh, how genius is that. #tiny #french75 #smallthings #ginstagram #ginspiration #gin #drinkgin #moodygrams #instamood #drinkphoto #cocktailoftheday

PANDANRITA Time to shake up a killer margarita! A simple addition of a big flavored syrup delivers massive results. Try this recipe out, and let me know what you think! 1½ oz Blanco Tequila ½ oz Cointreau ½ oz Pandan Syrup* 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice 1 dash of Scrappy’s Lime Bitters Pink Sea Salt Rimmed Glass Fresh Lime Wedge Serve over a large ice cube Shake well. Strain. Enjoy. Pandan Syrup 100g Boiled Water 100g Cane Sugar 10g Pandan Leaves Add the boiled water and sugar to a saucepan and put on low heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar; cut or tear the pandan into small pieces, and then add to the pan. Remove from heat, cover, and steep for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, and then add to a blender. Blend until the leaves are almost gone. Strain, bottle, and keep in the fridge. This will hold for 2 weeks. #cincodemayo #may5th #happycincodemayo #tequila #margarita #pandan #greendrink #lime #cointreau
