To The Point

Let’s get ‘to the point’… we are crushing on this recipe from Imbibe Magazine (with slight modifications):

🔸2.5 oz. rye whiskey

🔸¼ oz. lady grey tea syrup

🔸¼ oz. green Chartreuse

🔸1 dash angostura bitters

🔸1 dash cinsmmon

Add the whiskey, Chartreuse, syrup, and bitters to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain over ice in a rocks glass.  Garnish with an orange peel and basil.  Grate cinnamon over the orange peel.

The lady grey simple syrup is easy-peasy lemon squeezy. Make a one-to-one ratio simple syrup and steep lady grey tea in the syrup while it’s warm.

Coconut Chai Fizz

Florida’s winter take on the gin fizz. The first step is to steep coconut chai in a simple syrup.  Once ready, grab your rum and fresh egg white.

2 1/2oz Bacardi 8 Rum
1/2 oz coconut chai simple syrup
1 egg white
2 dashes of orange bitters

Combine all ingredients and shake aggressively for one-to-two minutes, until the cocktail is frothy. Strain into a coupe and garnish with toasted coconut.

Mama D’s Basil Cocktail

If green beer isn’t your thing on this St. Patrick’s Day, your taste buds might get lucky with this refreshing cocktail! The Barrister’s Mother-in-Law introduced this cocktail to the family last summer. Like all great cocktails, it has been modified by each person in the family, this is the Barristers take on the recipe.

1.5oz Uncle Val’s Gin
3/4oz St. Germain
1/2oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Barspoon Simple Syrup
5 Basil Leaves

Add St. Germain, lemon juice, simple syrup, and basil leaves in your shaker. Muddle the basil. Add Gin & ice. Shake until cold & pour into your favorite cocktail glass.

The original recipe calls for this concoction to be topped off with club soda and includes cucumber; the Uncle Val’s adds enough cucumber flavor for the Barrister and the Barrister sees no point in time watering down a perfectly good drink.

Rosy Amneris

Spring is not far from view. Blossoming flowers and warm sunshine awaits. Today is the District’s first “spring-like” day. We escaped for a few hours to enjoy a long walk along the water. The soon-to-bud tulips and roses inspired a crafty concoction for the Barrister’s Bar Room. We present our own cocktail, the Rosy Amneris. Enjoy the first taste to spring.
