point of no return

I discovered this one at the Mistral Kitchen, in downtown Seattle. The honey adds a delicious complexity.

3 oz gin
¼ oz charteuse
1 ¼ oz lime
½ oz simple syrup
½ oz honey syrup

combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass.

To make the honey syrup: combine ½ honey and ½ water. Bring to boil while stirring, and cool.

whiskey sidecar

The Sidecar is one of the best cocktails ever conceived. This version replaces the brandy with whiskey.

2 oz whiskey
1 oz triple sec
1 oz lemon juice

combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass.

{bourbon is preferred, but scotch is a nice variant.}

vavilov affair

1 oz calvados (apple brandy)
1 oz bourbon
1 tsp sugar
2 dashes angostura bitters
slice of tart apple, juiced

combine in shaker over ice, strain into cocktail glass. garnish with another slice of granny smith apple

new york sour

A variant of the whiskey sour. And a nice way to use up that leftover wine!

2 oz rye whiskey
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup

combine in shaker over ice, strain into an old fashioned glass filled with ice.

pour 1/2 oz shiraz over back of spoon to float on top.
