First of all, I’d like to say thank you to each and every one of you who were a part of Season I of the Black Orchid Club. It was such a treat to create all of these cocktails and this game for you, and fabulous to share them with you each week. Thank you, thank you!
This week, Black Orchid Sessions begin… and I couldn’t be more excited about what’s on the horizon. This week’s special ingredient is a maple syrup, apple cider and cinnamon reduction called “Bitch Syrup,” so named for the signature cocktail it was created for, the “Black-Hearted Bitch.” Here are this week’s cocktails:
Goslings Black Seal and Lemon Hart Demerara give this grog style cocktail its name. With the addition of the specialty ingredient, notes of apple and maple, with hand squeezed grapefruit and a dash of Maraschino Liqueur, this cocktail may make you forget her... or she may haunt you forever!
The taste of revenge is sweet... and it has hints of bourbon, orange, lemon, apple, cinnamon and spices. Served up with a flamed orange peel.
An effervescent delight with gin and a lemon that makes maple and apple seem angelic. A good cocktail can mean redemption for us all... or not! But you'll have to taste it to find out!
Of course, you can also sit down with me for that custom made cocktail…. right on the spot, using the specialty ingredient and anything else you can dream up (that we’ve got behind the bar).
I’ll see YOU, tonight, at the Island!
