As a cocktail creator, it's not uncommon that there are only a handful of drinks that we are ever truly, truly happy with. Some may display our technique, others may be a personal spin on a classic, and some are just simple, yet beautiful. This is one of those simple cocktails, but the story behind it is what means the most.
Kathy, my mother, gave me a baggie full of dried roses to make tea. As she explains the health benefits of rose tea, my mind is already working cocktail recipes, of course. This one utilizes rapid infusion in a pressurized container, an infusion technique that takes only 4 minutes instead of days or weeks! 😆 In this case, it's @reyka_vodka vodka and mom's roses.
Though simple, this is one of the most beautiful, aromatic, delicate, and balanced cocktails I've put together yet. Dedicated to (and inspired by) my mother, this is 'Roses from Kathy.' 60ml Rose infused Reyka vodka
20ml Vanilla syrup
7ml Lemon juice
7ml Lime juice
5 drops Saline
Rose water spritz

One of my favorite shaken whiskey sour variations: the Brown Derby - bourbon, grapefruit and honey syrup (plus 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice for balance) But did you know there’s another Brown Derby recipe from the 1930’s with rum, lime juice and maple sugar which is probably may be more legit? (It’s actually pretty awesome with 2 oz Jamaican rum ¾ oz lime juice, and a heavy ½ oz maple syrup.) As @robertfmoss says in his excellent article on the subject: “I think we’ve brought back the wrong cocktail.” But the way I see it, with either one you can’t loose. Cocktail history ignorance can sometimes be bliss. Link to the the whiskey version, and other whiskey sour riffs, in profile.

Tonight's my last night at @thepunchroom! It's bittersweet because I'll miss seeing the Ritz-Carlton family everyday. None more than @flameango_jones and my mentor @bob_peters. I'm excited to announce that moving forward I will be the Beverage Director at Southbound. An upcoming new concept in the heart of South End. Opening date is TBD but you can be on a first to know basis by going to the link in my profile! Thank you to @lknwine for capturing this moment in Punch Room history.
