The Slurricane (no, we’re not kidding)

1 oz Smith & Cross Navy Strength Rum

1 oz Pierre Ferrand Cigare Cognac

1/2 oz honey-cinnamon syrup (recipe below)

1/2 oz grenadine (recipe below)

1/2 oz lime juice

2 dashes St. George Absinthe

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice and cap with a shaker tin. Shake vigorously and strain into a Collins glass. Add crushed ice and a lime wheel to garnish. ***Note: we love the Derby Co. Lewis bag and mallet combo. Great for crushing ice by hand.

 

Honey-cinnamon syrup:

2 cups honey

2 cups water

2-3 cinnamon sticks

Combine in a small sauce pan and place on high heat. Bring near a boil and reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for about 45 mins. Remove from heat, allow to cool, place in a jar, seal and refrigerate. Good for at least 2 weeks.

 

Grenadine:

2 cups POM juice

2 cups sugar

5 cloves

Zest of 1 orange

Zest of 1/2 a grapefruit

Combine ingredients in a small sauce pan on high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 15 mins and remove from heat. Allow to cool, place in a jar, seal and refrigerate. Good for at least 2 weeks.

Cocktail of the week: On the Waterfront

The influence for this week is no surprise…it’s the Super Bowl.  And what comes to mind with any sporting event?  Beer! Sweet, delicious, Boulevard Beer in the form of their glorious Long Strange Tripel which goes perfectly with any sporting event.  So with no further delay, here is this week’s cocktail:

1 dash of Angostura Aromatic bitters

1 oz cognac (we used Pierre Ferrand Cigare)

Beer for topping, no garnish necessary.

Build first 4 ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice, shake and strain into a glass.  Top with your choice of delicious (Boulevard) beer.  Enjoy!
