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.
The most common fruit juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; pure citric acid. Lemon juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A variety of sherry characterized by being darker than fino but lighter than oloroso. It starts as a fino, fortified to approximately 13.5% alcohol with a cap of flor yeast limiting its exposure to the air, however becomes an amontillado when the flor fails to develop adequately or is killed by additional fortification. Without the layer of flor, amontillado must then be fortified to approximately 17.5% alcohol to slow oxidation. The drink is slowly exposed to oxygen through porous American or Canadian oak casks, gaining a darker colour and richer flavour. It is named after the Montilla region of Spanin where it originated in the 18th century, however the name is also used commercially as a simple measure of color to label any sherry lying between a fino and an oloroso.
A non-alcoholic un-filtered beverage made from apples. It is often considered sweet even without adding extra sugar.
A medium-bitter Italian digestif made from local herbs such as condurango, cardamom, cinnamon, bitter orange rind and cinchona around the Euganean Hills; with a 30% ABV.
'Point and a half' this Italian bittersweet vermouth (chinato vermouth) dates to around 1867 and is simultaneously amongst the bitterest and sweetest of vermouths. It can be used as a substitute for rosso (Italian red) vermouths in most cases, but can also be thought of as an intersting sub for dry vermouth.
Combine all in a shaker, shake with ice. Strain into a coupe glass. #shake #straight
A bitter sour with flavors of black pepper and apples. By Leo Robitschek. To make the black pepper infused syrup: combine 150g crushed black pepper (pref. Tellicherry), with 800g simple syrup. Place in an iSi container and charge twice with N2O, shaking between charges. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and vent quickly. Strain through a cheesecloth. Alternatively you could make a simple syrup in the usual stovetop way, except add the crushed black pepper to the mix.
