It appears Autumn really hit my account with a bang. Every single recipe was inspired by Fall in one way or another, with some beautiful spirits and liqueurs being used. I’m really loving these warmer tones and can’t wait to get even more creative! See you next week for more #Drinkspiration!
Monday: Kaiteur Swizzle
A Smuggler’s Cove original, made with Guyanese Rum, Falernum, Lime and Bitters,
I discovered the drink in the book and made mine with a blend of El Dorado 12 and Pussers Gunpowder Proof. Long-lasting, rich flavors combined in a beautiful Autumnal TIKI.
Tuesday: Teapricot Time
A Served By Soberon original, The Danish Herbie released an ‘export’ version of their gin. In this drink I combined it with Pekoe Tea Liqueur, Lemon, Honey, Orange bitters and fresh Apricot and Rosemary. A perfect start for Autumn.
Wednesday: Cask and Apple
A Served By Soberon original. A resemblance of the switch from Summer to Autumn. Using Barrel Aged Gin in stead of unaged Gin and combining both Rhubarb and Apple you get best of both seasons. Some cinnamon spice ties everything together with a bang.
Thursday: Det Bedste
A Served By Soberon original, twisting on Robert Hess’ Ding Ho, which on its own was a twist on the Mai Tai. All three names mean the same, “The best”, mine in Danish, Robert’s in Chinese, the original in Tahitian. Gin, Elderflower Liqueur, Orgeat, Lime and Bitters. Fresh and vibrant, with a silky smooth mouthfeel and floral finish.
Friday: The Clubman’s Premiere
A Served By Soberon original, playing with the idea of a Rob Roy, yet using Dubonnet in stead of Sweet Vermouth and adding some Cynar for depth and complexity. The cool thing about this one is that you can pre-batch and take it with you in the flask.
Saturday: Berry With Me
A Served By Soberon original. Nothing too fancy here: A Double citrus Gin Sour shaken up with a handful of frozen berries. Both the idea and execution are easy, but the flavors are spot on and compliment the use of Brockmans Gin.
Sunday: Apple of My Eye
A Served By Soberon original using an ‘uncategorized’ Spirit: Mikkeller distilled their Imperial Black Stout (17,5% ABV!) and put it on four different casks. I had the chance to get creative with the Bourbon Cask and in the spirit of this week’s Autumnal drinks added a float of Laphroaig as well.
