Seelbach Cocktail

It’s been a while between drinks, and this drink is bittery, bourbony, fizzy deliciousness.
Those are technical bartender terms.

Javla Fitzgibbon, the assistant manager at Helvetica Bar, helped me out with this one.

Peychaud’s Bitters, Angostura Bitters, Woodford Reserve bourbon, Cointreau, sugar, sparkling wine, lemon twist

white lady

There are some drinks that suit almost any place or time. The White Lady is one of them. We used Gin Mare for this little weekend breakfast drink, so a rosemary sprig from the garden was a great complimentary garnish to lift the Mediterranean botanicals through the citrus. (Our lemon tree is going nuts again so expect to see a lot more of the sours family!)

breakfast flip

I’m feeling a bit of a fascination with the use of whole eggs in cocktails at the moment. (You may have noticed that they’ve featured pretty frequently this month.) I really enjoy the texture and how well it carries darker spirits. This is a little flip we had with breakfast at home the other day. Plus we had this amazing dry cherry port that we’d picked up at Mountford Winery‘s cellardoor over Christmas.

Wild Turkey Rye, Mountford Winery Cherry Port, Angostura Bitters, whole egg, castor sugar.
