It’s Nuts Hot Out There

Here are a couple highballs to ‘beat the heat’ with.  One not in the book, one modified.

biscuit & the fizz

Apricot Fizz

1 ½ oz Brandy
¾ oz Triple Sec
1 oz Apricot Juice OR One Apricot, Muddled
Dash of Peychaud’s Bitters
Soda Water
Build in a short glass over ice.

I was supremely pleased with how the subtle apricot and the bitters came together so well.  It’s not a light drink per-se, but definitely summer.

NYC 09 001

Pink Gin Tonic

2 oz Gin
1/2 Lime
4 Dashes Angostura Bitters
Tonic Water
Cut the lime into wedges. Build in an ice-filled short glass.

Ok, I’ll say strait up that this is not better than a regular gin & tonic, but its worth experimenting with.  And if you’ll let me wax poetic about it, I’d say its like sipping on British Rangoon.  Tastes imperial.
