Franck Andoux's book is excellent. And I really enjoy that cocktail, The Yellow. I swear I was repping it a few pages ago:
Riga Balsam is great. They also make a version with currant juice, which moderates it a bit and gives it, I want to say, a prune-like quality. I was once making cocktails at a party and one person (I swear) asked me to make a cocktail that Worf from Star Trek would drink. I used the Riga Kurrant, genever, and I forget what else but it was quite good and I named it "The Blood of Your Enemies" which I thought was cute and fitting.View attachment 1670723
Excited to have found a bottle of this. Was chatting with the bartenders at our local prohibition style bar about cocktails and interesting ingredients and they gave me a pour of this. They use it as the special ingredient in a lot of their cocktails. Very interesting stuff.
Was the broken heart even real? Was our empathy in vain?I do not recall posting this. I also sbought a few rounds for the bar. And tried to speak german.
I don't know if shaking a Manhattan is forgiveable.Makers Mark Manhattan: 4 ounces of gasoline (as The Chairman would have called it), 1 ounce of Dolin Sweet Vermouth, heavy dash of Angostura and a a couple of Fabbri cherries from Bologna. Shaken and served up.
