Everything but the Kitchen Sink


Clown Car

3/4 oz Mezcal [Del Maguey Vida]
1/2 oz Chile Liqueur [Ancho Reyes]
1/2 oz Ginger Liqueur [King’s Ginger]
1/2 oz Carrot Gin [Maine Craft Distilling Chesuncook]
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Kummel

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.


After swapping King’s Ginger and Ancho Reyes with Garnish Girl, I really wanted to use both of them in the same drink.  Mostly because they fall on the weirder end of the spectrum when it comes to my home bar inventory.  But why stop there?  As I looked at other bottles to add to these two, I realized that Kummel (cumin liqueur) and Chesuncook (carrot gin) are equally as odd.  Amazingly, I think these four bottles might actually work together.  A quick glance in my trusty Flavor Bible shows cumin and carrots each having afffinities to ginger and chili spices, so that’s all the confirmation I needed.

Prison Tattoo

1 oz Ramazzotti
1 oz Averna
1/2 oz Ginger Liqueur <King’s Ginger>
1/2 oz Rock and Rye <Hochstadter’s>

It’s time for another Mixology Monday!  Our host this month is Stacy Markow (be sure to check out her eponymous blog) and she has selected digestifs as the theme.  More specifically, she challenges us to “explore the vast combinations that camxmologon be found by discovering and making cocktails from ingredients known for their digestive properties. Rather timely  since, as she puts it “…this time of year is known for calorie laden holiday meals surrounded by family and friends “.  Continue reading “MxMo CXIV – Take a Moment to Digest”

Bottle Swap Collabo Pt 1: King’s Ginger


Thoroughly Polite Dustup

1 oz Apple Brandy
1 oz Bourbon
3/4 oz Ginger Liqueur <King’s Ginger>
1/4 oz Rich Demerara Syrup
Few dashes Apple Bitters

Combine ingredients with ice, stir, strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with candied ginger crown.


One of the things that led me to start this blog was all the other great cocktail blogs out there.  After enough reading, I was inspired to start making my own drinks at home.  So it’s very exciting that this week I’m doing a collaboration post with a fellow blogger-in-arms, Katie over at Garnish Girl.  Even better, she also lives in Boston, so we could meet in person.  That affords us certain luxuries, such as the ability to exchange hard goods.  In this case, that would be bottles.  We each picked one, made the handoff, and then came up with drinks for said bottles.
