Cherryman Cran Cocktail

Cherry and Cranberry just sounded good this evening. We had ham and leek empanadas with a fig, blue cheese, walnut salad. We were thinking the zing would nicely cut through it all and keep pace with the fig and vinegar from the salad. I had this small bottle of Cranberry concentrate that is the equivalent to tomato paste vs a can of crushed tomatoes. Just a little adds a really beautiful punch. I stirred in a natural Maraschino Cherry (not the florescent red ones…. but they have their place)

This turned out so great. I think using Rum and Vodka was a good call. Also we used Ginger Ale to add some fizz and a little zing of ginger. The color is also captivating…as long as it stays in the glass and not your carpet or couch. I was thinking it would be a good looking party cocktail but on second thought the stain factor would be high. So you judge for yourself if your friends and family are capable of avoiding spills.

Ingredients
3 oz of Rum
3 oz of freezer stored Titos Vodka
Ginger Ale
R.W Knudsen Cranberry Concentrate
Cherryman Farm to Table Maraschino Cheeries www.cherryman.com

Muddle the cherry and then add Rum vodka and a shot of Cranberry concentrate and top with ginger ale.

Cool as a Cucumber Cocktail

IMG_8612

We had a spicy asian ramen dish so I wanted to make something that was fresh and cooling. I picked up a bottle of Stirring’s Ginger liquor and thought about cucumber, Cel-Ray and Ginger. Tanqueray and Titos Vodka seemed like they would be able to carry it without interference.

Really refreshing drink.

2 oz Tanqueray Gin
2 oz Titos Vodka
1 oz Stirrings Ginger liquor
Cucumber
Mint
Topped with Dr Brown’s Cel-Ray soda

Muddle mint and cucumber with liquors and shake with ice. Pour into an iced glass and top with Dr. Brown’s Cel-ray soda.

Tonight we had our korean steak saam which had ginger in it so we naturally wanted to use somehow. We grabbed a couple of limes and a lemon and then noticed our moonshine cherries and thought it would all blend well with some Fentiman’s Ginger Beer.

2 cocktails
6 oz of Titos Vodka
1 Fentiman’s Ginger Beer
1 lemon
2 limes
2 tbs of grated ginger (used jarred)
2 Ole Smoky’s Moonshine Cheeries
pinch of salt

I juiced the lemons and lime and muddled in the moonshine cherry, ginger and vodka. Top it with ginger beer and ice.

Pineapple Express Cocktail

We had Thai lettuce wraps the other night that called for fresh pineapple and limes. Sounds like a cocktail to me so we made what we are calling the Pineapple Express. Jill had a good idea for next time, add a slice of fresh jalapeno for a hot herbal note.

3 oz Titos Vodka
several pieces of fresh pineapple
1/2 lime juice
topped with Ginger Ale

Muddle pineapples and lime juice and Vodka in a shaker. Add ice and shake. Pour into an iced glass and top with Ginger ale.
