In today’s Episode…

We’re bringing back some of great cocktails that have either fallen out of popularity – or never got the attention they deserved.

1. Pimm’s Cip

A signature cocktail of Wimbledon and is just an all-around great drink. It is made with:

  • 2 oz Pimm’s #1
  • 1/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Ginger Ale
  • and typically garnished with Cucumber

2. Negroni

The Negroni is not unknown within the cocktail community, but the general public is definitely still missing out!

Here’s my personal favorite recipe.

3. Sherry Cobbler

It’s an awesome drink that doesn’t get its share of much needed attention. Recently we’ve been noticing there are a lot of bars and restaurants that have started to uss sherry in their cocktails. Here’s a great classic drink that takes advantage of Sherry’s flexibility (and affordability!)

  • Muddle 2-3 pieces of fruit (like Orange slices) in a glass with 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • Add Sherry and Ice and Shake.
  • Strain into a Collins glass with crushed ice
  • Garnish with Fruit and (traditionally) mint.

4. Brandy Crusta

This is quite possibly the least appetizing cocktail name that I’ve ever heard – and it definitely doesnt’ do the drink justice. Back before prohibition, the Crusta was an extremely popular kind of drink – even more so than the “Cocktail.”

  • 2 oz Cognac
  • 1 tsp Orance Curacao
  • 1/2 tsp fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters

Rim a wine glass with sugar, and peel the lemon in such a way as to create a very large and wide peel. Combine all remaining ingredients in a shaker, shake, strain into the glass.  Arrange the lemon peel around the inside of the glass, so it rises above the rim.

5. The Last Word

Apparently when Murray Stenson from the Zig Zag Cafe in Seattle started serving the Last Word cocktail, folks caught on quickly and it’s stirred a bit of a revival for this cocktail. A Last Word is made with ¾ oz each of gin, lime juice, maraschino liqueur and green chartreuse.
