Cocktail of the Week: The Blue Bonnet

Leave a comment

This week’s drink was first inspired by a cocktail called the Brown Derby which is a bourbon based concoction that comes across as pretty sweet and kinda boring.  So we added some bitters to it, a more inspired syrup and topped it with some bubbles. The end result; a dressed up version of the original we call The Blue Bonnet.

The Blue Bonnet

1 oz. W.L Weller Bourbon

1 oz grapefruit juice

1/2 oz honey cinnamon syrup (equal parts honey and water; bring water to a boil, add cinnamon sticks (don’t be shy), let steep until water is muddy brown, add honey and stir.  When edges begin to bubble take it off heat to let it cool).

2 dashes Angostura Auromatic bitters

Dry, crisp bubbles such as Segura Viudas Brut Reserva cava

In a mixing glass, build first 4 ingredients.  Add ice, shaker tin cap and shake.  Strain into your champagne flute and top with bubbles.  Needs no garnish.  Cheers!
