GOOD OLD FASHIONED HEDONISM
This luminescent little number is part of @servedbysoberon's #secretsanté
campaign. Matthias randomly assigned each of us a Drinkstagrammer to make a custom cocktail for, a brilliant idea that celebrates the holiday spirit! @therituals this drink is for you!
I'm sure you noticed me stalking you, I left comments all over the place because your taste in drinks and drams is so close to mine. One post in particular caught my eye; you'd purchased, among other things, @stgeorgespirits single malt whiskey and @twojames Doctor Bird rum. Ordinarily I wouldn't mix that St. George whiskey with anything, including ice, but this is a special occasion so I threw restraint to the winter wind!
Every bottle of St. George states that they craft their spirits "to delight hedonists and genius bartenders alike." Being that Jamaica hosts a quasi-orgy called Hedonism every year, I had a name for this drink that matches its ostentatious and indulgent nature.
The single malt whiskey is the base spirit here, with a cube of brown sugar as the sweet and a very special bitters from Peru, Amargo Chuncho. These have a wonderful blend of spices with a soft hint of banana, really unique and wonderfully satisfying. To this we add a double barspoon of the Doctor Bird for its decadent funk and the drink is complete. It would be $30 at a bar, but that's the miracle of home bartending, you don't have to worry about making a profit.
Brian and Eric, I hope you love this drink. And if you can't find the Amargo Chuncho or brown sugarcubes please let me know, I'll send them to you right away. Here's to the spirit of giving, the spirit of hospitality, and the community I feel so lucky to be part of here on Instagram. Cheers!
2 oz St. George Single Malt Whiskey
