Last Word riff
A gin that contains no sweetening agents; usually around 40% ABV. Try Monkey 47.
A herbal bitter liqueur from the Bitter Truth that has notes from sweet vermouths and alpine digestive tonics. A rich dark comfortable amari that makes you want to 'don lederhosen and build an open fire.'
A liqueur distilled from Marasca cherries, that grow along the Dalmatian coast.
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A pale or golden colored lager beer, made with water Pilsner malt and Noble hops. Pale lagers tend to be dry, lean, clean-tasting and crisp. In the case of Saisons, this is a farmhouse style pale ale that is meant to be crisp and refreshing.
Combine all, except the ale, in a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled then strain into a cocktail glass. Top with pale ale and gently stir to incorporate. #shake #straight
