Mixology Monday: The Brown, Bitter and Stirred.

In Cocktail, Event, Recipe on August 28, 2010 at 2:35 pm

So I’m really excited about this recipe and this post. As some of you know, or may not know, it’s Mixology Monday this monday. If you have no idea what it is please do us both a favor and check this out http://www.mixologymonday.com! Anywhoosie , Lindsay Johnson, whom I met through twitter [due to the fact that I used the hashtag #lushlife after a tweet lol], is hosting and asked me to submit! Of course me being the eager boozing beaver that I am agreed, everyone that knows me knows I show up to the opening of an envelope if you ask and I’m free.

So to give a definition of the BBS to someone who may not know what it is, the best way I can explain it is the use of an aged spirit in an aromatic cocktail. I think that kinda sums it up. To break it down even further and into simpler terms, you’re using brown drank and some bitters, go light on the mixers, and make it boozy. SHEESH, if I was this good at simplifying expressions in algebra I’d be a rocket scientist! Okay enough yammering, down to brass tacks!

Creole Lady Marmalade

  • 1.5 ounce Barbancourt Cinque Etoile Rhum
  • .75 ounce Aperol
  • .5 ounce Dolin Rouge
  • 1 Bar spoon Cointreau
  • 2 dashes Bitter Truth Orange Bitters
  • 1 piece of orange zest for garnish

Place all the ingredients in a mixing glass, fill with ice, stir, serve up, finish by spraying the drink with the oils from the zest. Hope you all enjoy! Picture to come, because I need to go buy a damned orange. LOL.
