KATU AM Northwest had me back on the show again to mix up some 'love potions". You can watch the full video here. We made a cocktail from Sam Ross of Little Branch in New York, a refreshing sparkling grapefruit-ginger cocktail and a timeless classic cocktail, the Sazerac. What are you drinking this Valentine's Day?
3/4 oz. Eagle Rare Bourbon
3/4 oz. Aperol
3/4 oz. Amaro Nonino
3/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Share for 30 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
1/2 oz. Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
1 oz. Fresh Grapefruit Juice
Top with Prosecco or Sparkling Wine
Add all ingredients to champagne flute. Garnish with grapefruit zest.
1.5 oz. Koval Lion's Pride Organic Whiskey
2 dashes Amargo Chuncho Bitters (or substitute Angostura Bitters)
2 Dashes Peychaud's Bitters
St. George Absinthe Verte
Add ice to old fashioned glass to chill glass while building cocktail. In a cocktail mixing glass, add whiskey and bitters and stir with ice for 30-45 seconds. Discard ice from first glass, and pour a small dash of absinthe into the glass. Tilt the glass and slowly swirl to coat the inside of the glass with absinthe. Add sugar cube and a few drops of water to dampen the cube. Crush the sugar cube. Strain and add whiskey and bitters from the second glass into the absinthe rinsed glass.
