Tomorrow and Thursday, Edible teams up with eight liquor shops throughout Brooklyn for a Hendrick’s Gin Tasting. Lucky us — we’ve got the Hendrick’s gin cocktail recipe that Ayana Suknanan from Gnarly Vines Wines and Spirits will make!
Local, seasonal cocktails sound hard to come by, until you realize you live in a city that’s surrounded by sweet corn and tomatoes. White Pike Whiskey, located in the Finger Lakes, does all the farming, milling, distilling and bottling to create their smooth, clean whiskey. Lucky us, Steven Ljubicic from White Pike gave us his recipe for the perfect fall cocktail: the Bloody Mary.
Toast Dorothy Parker’s birthday with an apropos cocktail and spirit.
While bartender contests are usually not our scene (don’t you HATE it when you get a recipe that calls for three things you’ve never even heard of, let alone have in your pantry?), there was one drink at the Don Julio Tequila cocktail competition at Good Spirits we tried that we absolutely have to, and can easily, make at home.
The Forrest Gump cocktail from Nick and Toni’s Cafe features Brooklyn’s own Cacao Prieto Cacao Rum, which we wrote about in Edible Brooklyn. It goes down easy with some Valentine’s chocolate, just saying…
After all the holiday feasting and feting, who couldn’t use a little pick-me-up to get through the work week? Here’s a cocktail from the folks at Kings County Distillery and Marlow & Sons restaurant in Williamsburg that’s just right for our we’d-rather-be-baking-cookies-than-sitting-at-this-desk mood.
Late summer sunsets go down best with a cool cocktail in the hand. With that in mind, we dug up this fantastically herbaceous and spicy tipple, compliments of Greg Seider, an owner of The Summit Bar on Avenue C. Stop what you’re doing, raid your garden and make it now.
On a hot summer day, the list of cocktails we crave is nearly endless—-an icy gin & tonic, a salty margarita, a sweet mint julep. But as they say, when in Rome. When in Manhattan, why not drink a Manhattan?
School’s out, the kids are free and everybody’s thirsty. While we’re usually big advocates of adult drinks this time of year, here’s a recipe that’s sure to please the kids, as well as the child inside of all of us: horchata.
“It’s a nice segue, for hair-of-the-dog purposes,” explains Rye bartender Casey Van Heel, adding that the drink is something of an “adult milkshake.”
As promised, the final recipe from the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition. You might recall we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes made with the new Compass Box Scotch blend, which is designed for mixing.
This is the The Scotch Also Rises, from Richard Murphy at Buttermilk Channel. He’ll be competing against his colleague Anthony Sferra, who is making a drink called the Tinderbox; wish them both luck, as the winners are being crowned tonight as competitors make drinks in front of a live panel of judges. Stay tuned for the results right here.
Here’s recipe four from the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition; we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes made with the new Compass Box Scotch blend, which is designed for mixing. This is the Tinderbox from Anthony Sferra at Buttermilk Channel. (You know, the Carroll Gardens restaurant where Jay-Z and Beyonce spent New Year’s Eve?)
