Line a snifter with the Sidewinder’s Fang peel (see notes), with one end hanging over the rim of the glass. Fill glass with cracked or cubed ice to hold the peel in place. Put the remaining ingredients in a drink mixer tin with 12 ounces of crushed ice and 4 to 6 small “agitator” cubes. Flash blend then strain into the snifter. Garnish with a mint sprig. #blend #ontherocks
To make the garnish for this dangerous concoction, grab an orange and, using a wide peeler, start at the top of the fruit and pull an approximately 1-inch-wide, shallow (no pith) continuous strip of peel, rotating the orange while gradually moving down and around the fruit, so as to remove the entire peel. After the peel is about ¾ inch long, alter the direction of the peeler slightly and finish peeling. The result is a rounded chunk of peel (the head) and a continuous length (the snake body). Use a straw to poke holes for eyes in the head. Then arrange the spiral along the inside of the snifter, with the head hanging over the edge of the glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice to hold the sidewinder peel against the side of the glass. Add Sidewinder’s Fang cocktail. Drink up!
