Baltasar And Blimunda
A vapor column distilled gin that contains no sweetening agents. A common ingredient in many cocktails.
'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.
An Italian bitter aperitif made infusing herbs and fruits in alcohol and water. ABV ranges from 10% to 29% based on country.
Aged ports made from red grapes that are left to age in wooden barrels. These gradually mellow and turn a golden-brown color. Exposure to oxygen through the wood pores imparts a nutty flavor.
An orange colored citrus fruit. Many types of orange make an appearance in cocktails. The peel and juice are equally valuable to diverse cocktails.
Stir all the ingredients over ice, then strain into a coupe. To garnish, flame an orange coin over the drink, then drop it in. #stir #straight
