I am finally posting the long awaited series of four shows where Mary, Kati and I talk about the cocktails 101 article that Lisa Futterman wrote for the Chicago Tribune which was re-printed in the Sun.  We had a blast recreating the drinks.

Episode 1)Three Partners catagory…eg. Martinis, Manhattans or Negronis.  We made the ‘Old Pal’ or a Boulvardier.  1 oz dry vermouth, 1 0z rye and 1 oz campari.  Garnish with Orange Rind.

Episode 2)The Old Fashioned/Lowball family.  Our drink was called the Hanky-panky.  2 ounces gin, 2 ounces Italian sweet vermouth, 1/4 ounce Fernet Branca.

Episode 3)Fizz or Collins.  We made The Gin Buck!  1 1/2 ounces gin, 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, Ginger ale or ginger beer.

Add gin and lemon juice to an ice-filled glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish with lemon wedge. Serve at once.

Episode 4)Sours!  My personal favorite…we made a version of the Daiquiri!  Ours used  Goslings Black Seal Rum which gave the drink a beautiful apricot color!

 

Hope you enjoyed the series here is the original article from the Tribune!  Thanks Lisa!
