Mixology Monday CX – Vinegar

After participating in a few Mixology Mondays, I decided it’s time for me to step up and take on the hosting duties myself.  It is both an honor and a privelege.  For those unfamiliar with the concept, here’s the tl;dr version of Mixology Monday: Somebody picks a theme, then within two weeks, like-minded cocktail folk from across the interwebs submit their recipes using said theme.  You can check out the site to learn more.

MxMo CIX – Come Dry Your Drinks


Dry Dock

1 1/2 oz Aquavit 3/4 oz Amontillado Sherry
3/4 oz Dry Vermouth

Stir with ice, strain into chilled a cocktail glass


For Mixology Monday this month, Nick from the Booze Baron  decreed unto his subjects the theme shall be dry, and not in the British sense of humor way.  He gives some hints on what he means when he reminds us:

1 oz Rye Whiskey <Rittenhouse>
1 oz White Whiskey <Bully Boy>
3/4 oz Pimm’s No. 1
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz hot honey syrup*

Combine ingredients in a collins glass.  Fill with crushed ice, swizzle until outside of the glass frosts over.  Top off with a little more crushed ice, add a few dashes of Angostura bitters and a straw, garnish with lemon twist

* For the honey syrup, combine equal parts warm water and Mike’s Hot Honey and stir until dissolved


Hey, guess what?  It’s Mixology Monday* time! This month Boston’s own Frederic Yarm of Cocktail Virgin  Slut is hosting (you may recognize that site since I’ve been known to link to it from time to time).  He’s chosen swizzles as the theme.  “What are swizzles?” you might ask.  Well, head over to Frederic’s announcement post for the full details.  The tl;dr version is basically this one sentence from that post:

… swizzles are built in the glass, topped with crushed ice, and agitated with a rapidly spinning natural swizzle stick (or facsimile) to mix and chill.
