Always And Forever
A Couple That Drinks Together Stays Together
A whiskey made primarily from a corn grain mash, aged in charred oak barrels.
A popular brand of elderflower liqueur, made with wild elderflowers and based with Eau de vie; 20% ABV.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
A bitters made from Seville oranges, cardamom, caraway seed, coriander and burnt sugar.
A sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in Champagne, France. The carbonation is due to secondary fermentation of the wine after it's bottled. For our purposes we treat this the same as Brut and Sparkling Wine.
An orange colored citrus fruit. Many types of orange make an appearance in cocktails. The peel and juice are equally valuable to diverse cocktails.
In cocktails, cherries are sweetened in a brine, like maraschino cherries (marr-ə-SKEE-noh) or in brandy, like brandied cherries. They are usually used as a garnish, muddled into the cocktail, or used simple for their sweetened brine.
Stir all ingredients, but champagne, with ice and strain into a rocks glass over one large cube. Top with the champagne (careful not to drown). Garnish with an orange twist and a cherry. Always (her) - Omit the bitters and cherry. Forever (him) - Replace 1 dash orange with 1 dash angostura bitters. #stir #ontherocks
