Cocktails Du Jour

Eddie Pensier writes:


“Cherry Coconut Blazer” (coconut-infused whiskey, cherry-infused cognac, chocolate liqueur and chocolate bitters, flambéed in situ and garnished with nutmeg before serving, still warm) and “Ryan Gosling Flip” (Gosling’s rum, sherry, chocolate liqueur, banana bread syrup, black walnut bitters, and whole egg) at Hippo Co.

The Blazer packed an unholy initial punch from the alcohol vapor, and continued to delightfully sear the throat on the way down. It tasted like a Cherry Ripe but in liquid intoxicating form.

The Flip was quite simply the milkshake of the gods, rich and unctuously palate-coating from the egg. That and the banana-bread syrup provided rich bakery notes to accentuate the inherent sweetness of the rum and sherry. No complexity here, no contrasts, just pure sweet indulgence.

    Intriguing; some creative mixology there.

    Sounds perfect for an antipodean winter day! 🙂
