Going through one of my cocktail notebooks, I found a lot of things in the “to-do list”. There are infusions, cocktails and dishes based on coktails. Hoping to bang a few of these out soon. Here’s what I have:
A cocktail based on waldorf salad using Nocino (walnuts), apple brandy, Pedro Ximenez Sherry (raisins) and Cel-Ray celery soda. I haven’t worked out any ratios yet, and I’m not really sure about this, but it’s worth a shot.
Szechuan peppercorn brandy/cognac
Reposado tequila with guajillo peppers
Cocoa nib scotch
Country ham bourbon
Red miso tincture
Green curry coconut cachaca
Besk infused with grapefruit
Blackberry infused Suze or chartreuse
Some type of pastrami spiced liquor
Smoking/charring citrus for cocktails
This is a work in progress. Just a few interesting things I pulled out of old notebooks.
