Buttermilk Channel Barkeeps Go Shaker to Shaker Tonight at Our Cocktail Competition

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?)

Scotch, Blood Orange Juice and Winter-Spiced Chai=Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’s Red Skies at Night Cocktail

As promised yesterday, we scored recipes for each of the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition. It’s something we’re running in conjunction with Compass Box Whisky Company: Great King Street is their brand new Scotch blend designed for making drinks; so we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes.

Alert Your Barkeep: The Great King Street Cocktail Competition Begins

While researching the next edition of Edible Manhattan–the annual Alcohol Issue that arrives January 1–we had the pleasure of hanging out with the founder of Compass Box at the 12th annual WhiskyFest, which took over the Marriott Marquis last month. John Glaser is an American-born maker of Scotch, which is rare enough already. But more importantly, he’s perhaps the only man in Scotch focused on mixing handcrafted boutique blends from single malt and high quality grain whiskies from other Scottish sources, rather than distilling them himself.

Tomorrow night at 6:30 we’re going to co-host a potluck at The Brooklyn Kitchen in Williamsburg.

We’re trying to lure not just each of you to come and bring a dish to share, but also to convince the ever-amazing pickler Rick Field to come and to bring his Polish Potato Potage with Brined Croutons, featured on page 36 of Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook and made with his People’s Pickle.
