Cocktails Du Jour

Eddie Pensier writes:

“Cinnamon Fix” (rye vodka, apricot brandy, apple juice, lemon juice, cinnamon syrup–essentially apple pie in liquid alcoholic form) and “Regent Martini” (vanilla infused vodka, passion fruit purée, agave syrup, apple juice–tart/sweet and alarmingly easy going down) at the topnotch Hippo Co. The atomiser in the background contains orange flower water, which was spritzed over the top of the martini by our estimable bartender Jack. Not pictured: “Old Smoke” (smoked rum, honey water, lime, and super-spicy in-house ginger soda). All three were works of gustatory art.

    I’m intrigued by the smoked rum! I presume that’s rum that’s been smoked in-house, as opposed to rum that was smoked by the distillery.

    I have heard of people smoking bourbons and the like. The concept does fascinate me.


  2. Yes, it did say that the rum was smoked in-house. It wasn’t hugely noticeable thanks to the wicked bite of that ginger, but it was a nice little flavor wisp.

  4. Sounds delicious. Incredible (and inspiring) what today’s mixologists get up to.
