This summer, despite having a dissertation to write and finish I will likely have a lot of time on my hands. So I’m making a leap into the next part of gastronomy that I don’t have much experience with: cocktails.
I now work in a bar, and every time a customer asks me about cocktails I’m at a loss. I don’t really drink them. I know very little about spirits. I have practically no idea how to make a cocktail, even though I made my first one for a customer last week.
I made my Pintrest board and have started collecting recipes. Check it out and let me know if I’m missing some!
EDIT: Instead of being sensible and making a classic, I decided to innovate for my very first venture into the Cocktail School. I need a name for this heady combination of scotch whiskey, trappist dubbel, cold-brewed coffee, and butter. Yes. Butter.
I’m considering calling it Beginner’s Luck.Beginner’s Luck
Two ounces Scotch whiskey
1/2 cup Westmalle Trappist Dubbel
12.5 ml cold-brewed coffee
1 tsp melted butter Shake over ice and serve with foam.
