9-3-15 Word On Wine Summer Cocktails Revisited!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | Comments Off on 9-3-15 Word On Wine Summer Cocktails Revisited!

This week we are rerunning a show from 2013 where we used some cocktails from Bon Appetit, Food And Wine  and The New York Times.  These are too nice not to look at again and I have transcribed the recipes!  I am definitely going to try these…if you aren’t sure where to get some of the more obscure ingredients your local good wine shop is usually the place.

1)Rose Sangria.  8 servings

1 bottle chilled dry Spanish Rose

1/2 cup Orange Liquor

1 cup Fresh Orange Juice

2 tbs Lime Juice

1 Orange Unpeeled Cut Into Rounds

4 Apricots, Pitted And Cut Into 1/8ths

1 Pint Raspberries.

Combine all ingredients and add ice.

2)My Clementine!  8 Cocktails

14 oz. Vodka

12 oz. Fresh Clementine Juice

6 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

6 oz. Aperol

4 oz. Light Agave Nectar

Soda to taste and Ice.  Serve Shaken Or Stirred!

3)New York Sour 1 Cocktail

2 oz. Rye Or Bourbon (I would use Canadian Whiskey..eg…Crown Royal!)

1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

1 oz. Simple Syrup

Empty all ingredients into shaker, add ice and shake till frosty.  Using strainer pour into rocks glass.  Using the back of a spoon float a half oz. red wine (Shiraz or something big and fruity) over the cocktail.  Should look like a sunset!

4)Amante Picante Margarita 8 cocktails

1/2 Large Seedless English Cucumber

1/2 Medium Jalapeno

1/4 Cup Cilantro Chopped

18 oz. Tequila

8 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

6 oz. Light Agave Nectar

Celery Bitters

Lime Wedge…Kosher Salt…ice.

Muddle Cucumber, Jalapeno, and Cilantro.  Add remaining liquid ingredients, mix in a large container!    Strain and pour into Margarita or rocks glasses with ice.

I am going to try these…Sounds like an adventure…if you give this a shot let us know how it works out.  Here is our show…Enjoy.
