Podcast! Again!!!

Amazingly (really, it was pretty amazing) Joe, Eric and I were able to pool our collective time, resources, and distended livers to create a new podcast. In honor of July 4th (also known in the US as "The Day I Blew My Hand Off"), we talk about some cocktails which take advantage of some spirits produced in the good ol' US of A. Here are the recipes for those drinks, with links to the yankee spirits used to create them. Check the podcast for drinking, laughing, learning (and some burping...just a little).

The Red Hook

1oz Punt E Mes
.5oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice, and stir for 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

BONUS: check the pics I took on a visit to Copper Fox a couple of years ago - Rick Wasmund's Mom gave us the tour :)

The Caricature

.5oz sweet vermouth
.5oz Campari
1oz fresh grapefruit juice
1oz simple syrup

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice a shake. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a flamed orange peel.

The BH11
