Customer Appreciation Post — The Scarlet Witch

Another pic from New Year’s Day:

  
Pictured above is my Scarlet Witch cocktail.

This drink has been going over really well.

I’ve sold it to a few different people who were debating between wine or a Cosmo or Vodka/Cran.

It’s a nice little twist on those flavors — with Ramazzotti, Chambord & Cabernet lending extra dimensions to the taste:

Customer Appreciation Post — Boulevardier

A Boulevardier that I made a friend last night:

  
Gin is good, but sometimes you just gotta have bourbon!

From a New York Times article by Tony Cecchini:

The drink is credited to Harry McElhone, the founder and proprietor of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, and dated to 1927. It is mentioned only glancingly in his book “Barflies and Cocktails,” not in the 300-odd cocktail recipes that make up the bulk of that volume, but rather in a tongue-in-cheek epilogue that follows, recounting the antics of his regular customers.

Cecchini continues on to talk about Erskinne Gwynne, McElhone’s customer who created the drink — and the article gives the history of Gwynne’s version and McElhone’s version and modern twists by present day bartenders. It’s a worthwhile read.

The cocktail was a banana version of The Revolver, which I’ve written about before.
