The Bulleit Mint Julep

15 oz. Bulleit Bourbon
30-40 fresh mint leaves
Simple Syrup solution (1 cup sugar and 1 cup water)

Preparation:

Wash mint leaves, pat dry and put them in a small mixing bowl.  Cover with 3 oz. of Bulleit Bourbon and let soak for 15 minutes.

Remove mint, then place in a clean cotton cloth and wring over bowl, bruising the leaves.  Dip back into bourbon and wring again.  Repeat several times to create mint extract.  Set extract aside for one hour.  You can also put the leaves back in the extract for a more concentrated mint flavor.

Combine mint extract (leaves included, if preferred) with simple syrup in a covered glass container or jar and refrigerate overnight.

Here's another drink recipe that I picked up at the Chalet Party Shoppe Mother's Day Tasting Event.

Ingredients:

2 ounces Tres Leches Triple Cream Liqueur
2 ounces Bird Dog Blackberry Whiskey

Directions:

Pour ingredients in ice filled shaker.  Shake vigorously.  Pour in old fashioned glass, over ice.

This drink was such a big hit, the store sold out of Bird Dog Blackberry Whiskey that night, and was quite low on the Tres Leches.

If you like cream liqueurs, you might try shots of the Tres Leches Triple Cream Liqueur chilled.  Quite tasty!

The Marilyn Drink Recipe

I managed to pick up a couple of drink recipes last week, at Chalet Party Shoppe's Mother's Day Tasting Event.

This one was definitely my favorite out of all 9 tables, which is less than the norm for their tastings.  For some reason? there were no beer companies at this month's tasting.  Hopefully, some will show up next month, for the 'Disco' themed tasting on June 20th.

Back to the drink recipe.....

This one is called 'The Marilyn' and includes the new Three Olives Marilyn Monroe Vodka.  Very tasty!



The Marilyn Drink Recipe

Ingredients:

2 ounces Three Olives Marilyn Monroe Vodka
1 ounce Cranberry Juice
1 ounce Half and Half

Directions:

Pour ingredients in an ice filled shaker.  Shake well.  Pour into a martini glass.  Garnish with a strawberry. 

This one would also taste good if you rim the martini glass with sugar.

Play with it a little bit, as everyone has different tastes.  You may want to add more or less vodka.

Enjoy, and please remember to drink responsibly!

Beer and Cheese Pairings

This is a little different than my normal blog entries.  However, I thought a few of you might find this as interesting as I did.

These pairings are from Cabot Creamery, and are titled "Beer and Cheddar, the Perfect Pair!"

Beer & Cheddar Pairings with Long Trail Beer & Cabot Cheddar.

Long Trail Ale & Extra Sharp Cheddar


Two of Vermont classics go great together! Cabot's Extra Sharp Cheddar pairs nicely with Long Trail's Ale. The full bodied amber ale has a clean, full flavor and pairs nicely with the smooth, creamy naturally aged cheddar.


Long Trail Blackbeary Wheat & Sharp Light Cheddar


This light and refreshing beer with a hint of blackberry flavor pairs nicely with Cabot's Sharp Light Cheddar. The crisp, fruity notes of the beer combine well with the nutty, earthy flavor this cheddar offers.

Long Trail IPA & Vermont Sharp


The assertive hoppy bite of IPA stands up in defiant contrast to the creamy smooth flavor of Cabot's Vermont Sharp Cheddar. This IPA also pairs well with Cabot's Monterey Jack.

Long Trail Belgian White & Hot Habanero Cheddar


The heat of the peppers and richness of this cheddar are tempered with the soft notes of citrus and clean finish of this all natural seasonal offering.


If you do not live in an area where Long Trail Beer and Cabot Creamery cheeses are available, try substituting a similar flavor with your favorite brands of beer and cheese!

    St. Patrick's Tasting Event

    Taking time here to evaluate Chalet Party Shoppe's St. Patrick's Tasting Event.



    First of all, I brought a rookie with me, so I didn't have the chance to visit all of the tables.  But that's ok, because it's always a great opportunity to introduce someone new to Chalet's great tasting events!

    Table 10 had the standard Jameson Irish Whiskey, Paddy Irish Whiskey and of course when you're talking Irish whiskey, you can't forget Red Breast. 

    I'm a huge Jameson fan, but wasn't offered to taste that one.  I did, however, ask to taste the Red Breast 12 Year.  I was surprised that it wasn't smoother, at $49.99 a bottle.  The taste was good, with a peppery spice finish and hints of a spicy liquorice.  Although, I think, I'll stick to my Jack Daniels.  (If I want liquorice flavor I'll drink Anisette.)

    One of my favorites, Randy of RNDC, was manning Table 6.  Randy was probably more prepared for the crowd than anyone.  He had an inexpensive Concannon Irish Whiskey mixed with ginger ale, ready to go, that went down smooth.  Also, he had poured some Michael Collins Irish Whiskey and Tullamore Dew samples.

    The Michael Collins has a very similar taste to one of my favorites, Jameson.  It is however, a little less expensive.  Smooth, for the every day whiskey drinker.

    For a little smoother taste (and not the average whiskey neat drinker), he also had Tullamore Dew poured.  Tullamore Dew has a higher concentration of malt than your typical grain whiskeys, and is triple distilled, but still very reasonably priced.

    Finally, Table 4, had nothing involving the Irish, but I loved it.  It's no surprise that Kevin from Crossroad Vintners had something to trick my trigger.

    He had a couple of drinks mixed in shakers and was giving small tastings of those.  I got a chance to taste the Mezcal Jalapeno and the Bone Snapper.  The Bone Snapper reminded me of the Italian Assassin, which is one of my favorite drinks, just a little lighter.  I was surprised I liked the Mezcal Jalapeno, so well, because I'm not typically a hot pepper person.  Although, I do enjoy the taste of a good tequila!

    Kevin also had a Smokey Margarita and Backbone Manhattan ready for anyone to taste! 

    Great table!  Thanks, Kevin!

    When asked for a sweet wine, Stan was able to point us in the right direction.  Table 9 had Enotria Moscato, which was the closest thing to a sweet wine in the whole tasting.  For my sidekick, that was a little disappointing.  Chalet tasting advisors might consider Moscatos are more popular now because more people like sweeter wines.

    However, we did enjoy the new Shock Top HoneyCrisp Apple Wheat Beer, that Anheuser Busch brought to their table.  We spent the night comparing it to the Redd's Apple Ale.  I enjoyed both, but my sidekick preferred the Shock Top.  Just goes to show everyone has their own palate!

    Note:  There were a number of wine tables I did not visit, and other tables that I have not mentioned in this article.  Watch for future blog entries and updates to this article.



    Italian Assassin Drink Recipe

    I've been drinking Italian Assassin's for years.  Fortunately for me, I recently discovered Lazzaroni Amaretto, thanks to Kevin @ Crossroad Vintners. 

    This is what I consider a 'True' Italian Assassin.

    Here's the drink recipe for you!

    Ingredients:

    1 ounce Jack Daniels
    1 ounce Lazzaroni Amaretto

    Directions:

    Pour Jack Daniels and Lazzaroni Amaretto over ice.  Stir, drink and enjoy!

    Here's a little info on the Lazzaroni Amaretto:

    • Made and Bottled in Saronno Italy
    • Since 1851
    • Made by Infusion of Amaretti Di Saronno Cookies
    • Product of Italy
    What better way to make an Italian Assassin!

    Backbone Manhattan Drink Recipe

    This is another one of the drinks that I didn't get a chance to try.

    However, if you are a regular Manhattan drinker, I think this version should definitely be on your drink menu!

    Backbone Manhattan Drink Recipe

    Ingredients:

    2 oz. Backbone Bourbon
    1 oz. Dolin Rouge Vermouth
    2 tsp. Angostura Bitters
    Maraschino Cherry for garnish

    Directions:

    Stir ingredients in mixing glass with ice cubes.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with cherry.

    And, as always, drink responsibly!

    Bone Snapper Drink Recipe

    This one I really like.  It is kind of a take off of the Italian Assassin.  Of course, a totally different type of whiskey and they are adding some juice.  So, it isn't nearly as stout, but it is a little smoother going down for those who are not quite 'real' whiskey drinkers.



    Bone Snapper Drink Recipe

    Ingredients:

    1 oz. Lazzaroni Amaretto
    1 oz. Bone Snapper Rye Whiskey
    2 oz. Cranberry Juice

    Directions:

    Pour ingredients in shaker with ice.  Strain into an old fashioned glass with ice.

    And, of course, always remember to drink responsibly!

    Smokey Margarita Drink Recipe

    Here's another one from Kevin of Crossroads, at last night's tasting.  I didn't get a chance to try it, but it sounds like it has great flavor.

    Smokey Margarita Drink Recipe

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 oz. Los Nahuales Blanco Mezcal
    1/2 oz. Lemon Juice
    3/4 oz. Orange Liqueur
    1/4 oz. Peychaud's Bitters

    Directions:

    Shake ingredients with ice.  Strain into a chilled martini glass.

    Mezcal Jalapeno Drink Recipe

    Here is one of the drink recipes from Kevin of Crossroad Vintners at the Chalet Party Shoppes St. Patrick's Day tasting last night.

    Mezcal Jalapeno Drink Recipe

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 oz. Los Nahuales Blanco Mezcal
    1/2 oz. Lemon Juice
    2 slices Jalapeno
    Ginger Beer

    Directions:

    Muddle Jalapeno with lemon juice.  Add mescal, ice cubes and shake.  Stain into Collins glass over ice and fill with ginger beer.

    I'm not typically a tequila drinker, nor do I eat jalapeno peppers, however, this was one really touched my pallet.  Great drink!  Thanks Kevin!

    Irish Whiskey Sour

    Here's another Irish drink recipe for you....

    Irish Whiskey Sour


    Ingredients:

    1 stick vanilla poached rhubarb

    Directions:

    Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice.  Shake and strain into your favorite cocktail glass.  Garnish with a stick of rhubarb.

    Jameson Notes: "The silkiness of the vanilla poached rhubarb is the perfect foil to the citrus sour and the warming notes of the Jameson."

    Jameson Manhattan with a Playful Twist


    Ingredients:

    1-2/3 ounces Jameson Whiskey
    1 tablespoon Lillet Rouge
    2 teaspoons Sweet Sherry

    Orange Twist

    Directions:

    Stir the Jameson, Lillet, Sherry and Bitters in a mixing glass filled with rock ice and then strain into a chilled Martini glass before garnishing with the orange twist.

    Jameson Notes:  "The addition of the sweet sherry brings out the whiskey’s sherry notes. This twisted Manhattan is equally enjoyed at home before or after a meal as it is so rich and luscious."
