I have seen drinks mentioned here many many times
Robert A has been a strong advocate.
for the past many months I have been in PT
Replaced ACL torn PCL severed 2 heads of hamstrings
some damage to PCL capsule and some calf shit too.
and I have been taking in allot of green juice
Im believing that they have helped allot with inflammation
Ive had almost daily
Kale spinach or chard
Giant chunk of ginger
and have played with
pineapple many times ( instead of blue berry)
added 1 or 2 scoops of hemp or unflavored whey protein
and some matcha green tea.
not that kind of cocktail- although I did have better skin hair nails
less inflammation etc...
we are talking quality ass drinks.
for thanksgiving I served
the Seelbach Cocktail
a bourbon and champagne based cocktail
Blasphemy- no actually quite festive
and let me dull the pain of sitting thru Thanksgiving with some fucked up inlaws
while on crutches
1 good bourbon
2 good champagne
4 7-10 dashes Angustora bitters
5 7-10 dashes of Peychauds Bitters
surprisingly dry champagne worked well with bitter and the smokey bourbon
avoiding makers or some of the low end Jim Beam etc with out committing sacrilege
you can can find a modest young bourbon who's' peppery and smokey taste will work well
2 oz good bourbon ( I used a small brand called Hudson)
1/2 oz of Cointreau Its an adult triple sec
7-10 dashes each of Peychaud 's and Angustora Bitters
champagne- I like Bollinger- its dry or you cant go wrong with Veuve Clicquot
Orange peel or orange slice for garnish
In an Ice filled larger ( highball) glass add Bourbon Cointreau and bitters
strain into a rocks glass with a thinly sliced orange on the bottom
add some ice and top with champagne
White Cranberry Martini
or as I like to call it Christmas drink.
this came about around holiday time.
And while somewhat recovered I was not looking forward to spending
an evening with same in laws for seven fishes, and then staying up all night to assemble
a bike for my son without being somewhat medicated
I made this in a large pitcher and everyone was feeling quite festive.
Good Vodka - makes a massive difference the higher the quality the less bit the vodka may have
I used Tito's Vodka its a newish US brand that is as good or better then Grey Goose.
Its sort of a Gimlet or a Vodka based Martini with lime juice for some festive tartness
1 liter of Tito's Vodka
2 juice of 6-8 limes * triple strained
3 Rosemary simple syrup
4 white Cranberry juice
5 frozen cranberry on swizzler
6 lots of fucking ice
Usually its a 1 to 1 of sugar and water brought to a boil and dissolved
for a Dark rum drink or a brown drink yes use Turibino or light brown sugar or Raw sugar
because this was white sugar - I used plain old white sugar .75 to 1 with water.
I also used maybe 3 sprigs of rosemary whole to make the syrup.
Put the water in a pot- add the sugar bring up the heat enough to dissolve the sugar
add the rosemary - simmer for 20-30 minutes on low
strain into a container to chill.
Lime juice I cannot emphasize how important it is to strain the lime juice
multiple times to eliminate the pith and membrane or pulp strain with a fine mesh strainer into a container to chill.
fill your mixing pitcher with ice pour in your 1 liter of Vodka add your lime juice
stir it plenty if your making a smaller batch use a shaker add your simple syrup
and keep stirring or shaking I only used about 16 ounces of white cranberry juice
strain it out of the shaker or pitcher into your glasses add the frozen cranberry on a stick for garnish.
this made a smooth smooth tart cocktail with rosemary undertones.
