Master of Cocktails Salted Caramel Old Fashioned

Right then, cocktail fans. For this week’s #MasterofCocktails, we’re going to be making a Salted Caramel Old-Fashioned recipe. Yum yum.

If you’re planning on making along with this week’s #MasterofCocktails, you’re going to need to do a bit of prep a day or so in advance. This includes making the Salted Caramel, dissolving the sugar and salt (as well as fat-washing the whisky), filtering it and adding the bitters.

This will leave you with very little left to do when the time comes to actually serve your Salted Caramel Old-Fashioned, which is quite handy indeed.

Master of Cocktails Flower Arranging With Mr Gumby

Hi there folks. If you tuned into the @MasterOfMalt Twitter feed on Sunday night for another edition of #MasterofCocktails, you may have noticed it was a bit late. Sorry about that. Been doing a spot of flooring. My whole house smells like young Bourbon. I quite like it.

Right then. Onto today’s cocktail. This’n’s called ‘Flower Arranging with Mr Gumby’. Reasons for the name will become apparent very soon.

Master of Cocktails The Naked Barista

Greetings cocktail-lovers. Who’s up for a swift whisky cocktail then? The second #MasterofCocktails whisky cocktail in a row, no less. Is it you?

 

If it is indeed you, that’s perfect, as that’s what we’re doing for this week’s #MasterofCocktails!

 

This week we’re making a drink I’ve named ‘The Naked Barista’. The reasons will hopefully become clear as we go through the recipe.

Greetings all. Time for a cocktail?

This week we’re going to be making a very Japanese-y cocktail, heavily inspired by the amazing work of Zoran Peric, a Brand Ambassador for Suntory Whiskies, whose work we’ve got a lot of time for here at #MasterofCocktails. We’ll be making a ‘If The Umeshu Fits…’ recipe, a name that will make sense when you see the ingredients.

Beefeater Global Bartender Competition 2014 MIXLDN

 

The Beefeater Global Bartender Competition (now the fourth biggest cocktail competition in the world, we’re told) brought finalists from 30 separate countries together in London this week for 2014’s grand final.

Last time around Jason Williams from Sydney’s The Rook took the crown with the brilliantly named ‘Werewolves of London’*, a drink that used our Frankincense Bitters! (You can now find the new and improved version of these Frankincense Bitters as part of the Bitter Bastards range.) This year, after three days of intense judging, we can reveal that the Global Champion is Brandon Phillips from The Duck Inn in Chicago. Congratulations Brandon!

Master of Cocktails The Widow's Kiss

Well hello there cocktail fan. I nearly didn’t see you there. Fancy a drink? Then you’re in luck, as you’re just in time for another #MasterofCocktails.

This week we’re going to make a ‘Widow’s Kiss’ recipe from the excellent PDT Cocktail Book by Jim Meehan. If you haven’t got this tome in your library, I heartily suggest you amend that oversight. Look, I even gave you the Amazon link and everything. Get to it. Chop chop.

Master of Cocktails Spiced Pear Whiskey Sour

Right then ladies and gents. Trust everyone’s recovered sufficiently after NYE? Time for this week’s #MasterofCocktails. This week we’re making a super-delicious Whiskey-Sour Variant recipe, which I have simply dubbed the Spiced Pear Whiskey Sour. We’ll be using the St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur for this one. It really is god’s own stuff, made using Pear Brandy, Pear Juice, and spices. Top, top marks St George Spirits.

I’m pairing (pearing? Sorry. Sorry) it with Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon for its perfume. I think this works well with the spice.

Master of Cocktails Marronhattan

Greetings all – time for this week’s #MasterofCocktails. I’m very much aware that this one’s sort of like the Christmas Number one, so we’ve got a really good one for you. It’s a manhattan variant made with an *amazing* Single-Barrel Bourbon (props to Maverick Drinks’ Michael Vachon on the cask selection), and Creme de Chataigne liqueur (Chestnut liqueur).

The name, you ask? Why, it’s a Marronhattan, of course.

Master of Cocktails Pedro Grant Goes To New Orleans

Right then folks. Time for another #MasterofCocktails! This week’s involves setting things on fire, which is always fun.

We’re going to be making a Christmassy twist on a Sazerac recipe using Balvenie 15yo Single Barrel and PX Sherry. If anyone feels like complaining about the fact that we’re using a good single malt in a cocktail, can I suggest you jog on and complain to the Daily Mail – they’ll probably have a story to print about it being responsible for immigration. Or something.

Master of Cocktails Long Standing Beef

Right then chaps – time for this week’s #MasterofCocktails. We’re making a sort of Old Fashioned/Manhattan hybrid using Maple Syrup as the sweetening agent. Oh, and candied bacon as a garnish, as if this cocktail recipe wasn’t sounding awesome enough already.

However, before you even think about touching any of the liquids, you’re going to need to candy your bacon. No, that’s not a euphemism.
