👌🦢👯On Pointe. A deliciously boozy, sweet, complex, juicy, and slightly bitter cocktail with a whisper of funk and smoke. This is my last minute entry to this month's #homebarawards.
After all, this month's theme was all equal parts. How could I resist? I tried quite a few variations on this one before I finally decided that it hit the mark. I got 6 equal parts. Not quite at creativedrunk 's level with his legendary 8 Amaro Sazerac (made with all equal parts), but he is a professional. I'm just some dude in Augusta with way too much booze in his house.🤷♂️😂 .
- 1/2 oz Byrrh
- 1/2 oz Punt E Mes
- 1/2 oz Carpano Antica
- 1/2 oz Amaro Nonino
- 1/2 oz Black Grouse
- 1/2 oz Hamilton Jamaican Gold rum
- 8 drops Bittermens Orange Citrate
Add everything to a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled glass. No garnish.
I really tried to figure out a garnish for this one that would add to the drinker's experience, but to no avail. Rather than post it with some non-functional garnish that just looks cool, I decided to forego one altogether. I can't remember where I first read/heard this, but it has stuck with me: Non-Functional Garnishes are No F*cking Good. So my lovely wife graciously dusted off her old pointe shoes to add some scenery to an otherwise simple-looking, but definitely not simple drink.
It's been a minute since my last post. Sometimes life, work, and fun get in the way of our hobbies. After a work trip, some house work that we have been putting off for too long, and planning, prepping and baking for, hosting, and bartending a kick-ass birthday brunch for my wife, I'm happy to say that I'll be posting regularly again!
Byrrh is the French Classic Apéritif based wine and cinchona since 1866 in south of FRANCE !☀️
