Master of Cocktails If The Umeshu Fits

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.

Master of Cocktails I Am Not A Negroni

‘sup cocktail fans. Ready for something a bit special for #MasterofCocktails this week? Of course you are. Just so we’re clear though, we’re not making a Negroni. That’s even clarified in the cocktail’s name – I am not a Negroni.

We’re going to be making our drink with fully certified Batshit Mental, Negroni-aged Bathtub Gin. This is the superb Bathtub Gin, aged for 4 months in a 50 litre cask that previously held a batch of Negroni.

Master of Cocktails The De La Louisiane

Well hello there cocktail fans. Hope you all had a wonderful Burns Night (apostrophe?)! In celebration, for #MasterofCocktails on Sunday we made a De La Louisiane recipe, which is a… erm… a cocktail with American Whiskey.

Should’ve thought that one through a bit better really, eh?

Nevertheless – this really is a good ‘un. It’s sort of a halfway house between a Manhattan and a Vieux Carre.

Master of Cocktails The Go Lightly

Well hello there cocktail chums. Time for a drink? If you check your watch, you’ll see that it is indeed #MasterofCocktails-o’clock – what perfect timing!

This week we’re making a little something I robbed from the St Germain website. It’s a ‘Go Lightly’ recipe, and it is *delicious*. We’ll of course be using St Germain’s excellent elderflower liqueur, and I’ve also gone ahead and amended the recipe a bit to make it more of a long drink.

Master of Cocktails Spiced Ale Flip

Right then ladies and gents – time for this week’s #MasterofCocktails. A real winter warmer this week, superb for chilly climes. We are, of course, doing a Spiced Ale Flip recipe.

For this one, you’ll be needing an unusual bit of barware – a fire poker. Keep it next to the strainer and the bar spoons.

Now this is really a very straight-forward recipe, which you can adapt at will. It all comes together very fast, with prep.

Master of Cocktails The Magic Number

Greetings all. Anyone fancy a drink?

We’re making a cocktail using Champagne for this week’s #MasterofCocktails – it’s The Magic Number recipe. It’s not a ‘Champagne cocktail’, as that’s a thing in its own right. This is a variation on a recipe I nicked from the Kamm & Sons website. Variation only in quantities, not ingredients. It’s a great showcase for the Kamm & Sons British Aperitif – which is sort of bittersweet. Closest comparison would probably be Campari.

Anywhoo – this really is a very easy-to-make drink, and is a break from the Christmas tradition of ‘all the Champagne’.

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.

Master of Cocktails Cask Aged Martinez

Right then – time for this week’s #MasterofCocktails, where we will be making a Cask-Aged Martinez. Now this week’s drink is going to take probably 2 minutes to prepare, as we’ve done all the prep. already. Clever us. If you’ve not done your homework yet or need a bit of a refresher on what you’ll been needing in your cask (available here), have a look at the Prep. Blog Post I made early last week for the recipe.

Once you’re up to speed, we can begin. Go on. I can wait… Ready? Lovely.

Master of Cocktails Christmas Panacea

Right then folks, you’ve had a day to assemble the bottles we’ll be needing for the prep for the upcoming #MasterofCocktails – This is really the ‘Christmas Panacea’ you’ve been dreaming of.

If you’re anything like me, there’ll be a seemingly endless procession of loved-ones throughout the Christmas period and ‘another Baileys’ only works so far. So – we’re going to make ourselves a cask of Martinez. Because, well, you know… Stir, strain and serve rocks.
