Summer Sippers – by Kris Bahamondes

Updated: August 1, 2015

1.5 oz. Tromba Blanco
1.5 oz. Martini Bianco
Rinse of Del Maguey Vida
2 dashes of Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters
Grapefruit zest

This cocktail is a cross between the Oaxacan old fashioned from Death and Co. and a Classic cocktail called the Martinez. I’m currently Martinez obsessed: smooth, delicious and boozy. This cocktails profile is round and smokey from the mezcal which perfectly compliments the mole bitters.

Procedure: In a chilled mixing glass filled with ice, add the Tromba Blanco, Martini Bianco and Xocolatl mole bitters. Stir the cocktail to achieve dilution and until fully chilled. Rinse a chilled coupe glass with the Del Maguey Vida tossing any excess and strain your cocktail into the rinsed coupe. Express a grapefruit zest over the top of the cocktail and garnish.

Garnish: Fresh Grapefruit zest.

2 oz. Tromba Reposado
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1oz. Simply Squeeze Real Strawberry syrup
8 fresh basil leaves and an extra sprig for garnish
Soda water to top

Flavorful fun can be easy too! Flairbar.com sent me some awesome Simply Squeeze Real syrups and this is a delicious and flavor packed cocktail I created with one of them.

Procedure: In a mixing tin add your Tromba Reposado, lime juice, Simply Squeeze Real Strawberry syrup and hand clapped basil. Fill the tin with ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice and top with soda water. Give the cocktail a quick stir to incorporate all of the ingredients. Sip and enjoy!

Garnish: Fresh sprig of basil.
FBC_Cocktail_August_2015cSOUTH EAST SIDE
2 oz. Bombay Sapphire East
1 oz. of fresh lemon juice
.75 oz. of Finest Call Bar syrup
6 fresh mint leaves
Freshly cracked pepper

This cocktail is a simple riff on a classic cocktail called the Southside. Bombay Sapphire East is made using Vietnamese peppercorns and lemongrass so it pairs perfectly with this recipe. This cocktail is great for cooling off on a patio and the freshly cracked pepper adds a kick.
Procedure: In a mixing tin add your Bombay Sapphire East, lemon, Finest Call Bar syrup and hand clapped mint. Fill the tin with ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Garnish: Top with freshly cracked pepper.
