Exhibit #108: Night Train
Scotch whisky, passion fruit juice, and a little Drambuie, up.
Branksome Special $13
Dry gin, red vermouth and Campari in a 3:2:1 ratio with a dash of Grand Marnier, up. We’re going all top shelf on this one: Old Raj and Carpano, always magical.
Byrrh Cassis $6
Byrrh quinquina (a wine-based aperitif with quinine) and crème de cassis in a 3:1 ratio, with a splash of soda and lemon twist, on the rocks.
Byrrh Cocktail $8
Nearly equal parts spirit, Byrrh, and dry vermouth, up. This may be compounded with cognac, bourbon, rye or scotch – we’ll be pouring Martell VSOP, Woodford Reserve, Bulleit Rye, or Johnnie Walker black label.
Jinx Cocktail $7
Equal parts dry gin, calvados (apple brandy), and passion fruit juice, with a dash of Angostura, up.
One Way $8
Equal parts gin, Swedish punsch, peach flavored brandy, and lemon juice, up. Dangerously delicious.
Toothfull Cocktail $8
And last but not least, tonight’s dare… the Toothfull is essentially a pre-Prohibition perfect Martini with a couple key differences – the serving glass gets a Benedictine rinse, and no ice is employed in the mixing process. Tanqueray, Carpano, Dolin dry vermouth, Benedictine, barrel-aged orange bitters, neat.
