For another #homebarawards entry for the ‘storied cocktail’ challenge I thought I would create something to pay tribute to one of the most iconic stories told over the last century. Written in 1897 Bram Stoker’s Dracula has inspired countless stories of vampires, has been told in thousands of ways in both novel and film. And thought it might not have been the first vampire story, it is without doubt the reason why vampires gained popularity and are still explored today. My personal favorite iteration is Dracula Dead and Loving it with Leslie Neilson, while a lot less dark than the original it is classic Leslie Neilson and definitely worth the time.
Like me, Dracula is always thirsty. He travels to London to feast and becomes taken with a young woman named Lucy. After he stalks and eventually kills Lucy from feeding on her several times he is chased back to Transylvania where he is hunted and killed for his actions. (spoiler alert)
The cocktail takes some of these themes and blends them into a well balanced fruitful recipe. The recipe is split, so that it can be enjoyed multiple times until the source runs dry. The main spirits for the drink include London Dry Gin and Tuscan Sangiovese wine which has been nicknamed ‘The Blood of Jupiter’ and offers a hint of cherry to the drink. It also uses Lemon Juice to add acidity paired with Blood Orange Gum Syrup which gives the drink a slightly different feel. The drink has a lot of fruit flavors and is strong enough to keep your night going for a while, a spritz or Lavendar bitters added to the glass post pour adds a level of mystique and a slight bitterness.
2 oz London Dry Gin
2.5 oz Sangiovese Red Wine
1 oz Lemon
1 oz Blood Orange Gum Syrup
½ oz Cocci Rosa
Spritz of lavendar bitters
No garnish needed as solid food is not appreciated.
So we're about 3 months late for the annual his/hers post but hey better late than never. For the @homebarawards 'storied cocktail' entry I figured what better story to tell than that of two young love birds that packed up all their shit and moved to NYC with a few boxes and very little of anything resembling a plan. She's been encouraging me since the day we met and if it weren't for her I probably wouldn't have made it this far, she and I have done a lot over the last few years and theres definitely plenty of chapters of this story left to be written. Each recipe captures a little of our character, and both are hella tasty drinks. She's light, bubbly, and a little spicy. I'm bitter, strong and energetic.
2 oz Plymouth Gin
1 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 Hefty barspoon Honey
1 Slice of fresh Jalapeno
5 Slices fresh cucumber
Add ingredients to a tin and shake. Double strain over ice and top with soda water. Garnish with a few Slices of lemon and a sprig of fresh rosemary.
2 oz Elijah Craig Bourbon
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqeuer
1/2 oz Mr. Black Coffee Liqeuer
1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
2 Drops Sarsaparilla Concentrate
2 Spritzes Pernod
Crush some ice and add a fresh Cara Cara orange Slice. Spray the ice with Pernod then add all the other ingredients into a tin and shake with ice. Strain over the crushed ice and enjoy!

Woah buddy, who loves rosemary? I used to hate it but I just kept trying food with rosemary and after a while I really started to love it. While I was doing some spring cleaning around the bar I was trying to find things to do with my bottles that were near empty and most of it ended up in an abomination I called trash juice, I couldn't treat my really good whiskies that way. So I combined my Suntory Toki that was near the bottle (which I just replaced with a full one) with some Grest Kings Street Peated Scotch and dropped in a sprig of rosemary to try out infusions. While the ratio of Suntory to Scotch was 3–1 it added some Grest smokey flavor to it that pairs well with the Rosemary. So naturally I made a quick cocktail with it. I think I'll keep experimenting but this was a really good herbal drink and I enjoyed it a lot.
2 oz Rosemary Infused whiskey*
1 oz Bruto Americano
1 oz Cocci Sweet Vermouth
Shake the ingredients and strain over ice, garnish with an orange twist and a sprig of rosemary.
*Infused whiskey was 3 parts Suntory Toki 1 part Grest Kings Street Peated Scotch and 1 sprig of rosemary left to sit overnight.
