Cocktail: Machattan
cap, captain miss america

[info]trouserminnow and I were discussing scotch cocktails in his LJ the other day, so I decided I would post up one of my standards that I don’t think I’ve posted yet.

Technically, a Manhattan mixed with scotch is called a Rob Roy, but this is sort of a twist on both, so it demanded a new name.

Ingredients for 2 cocktails

4 oz Scotch (I used Aberlour a’bunadh, which is aged in bourbon barrels)
4 oz Pomegranate Sour Cherry juice (I used Smart Juice Organic 100% Juice)
1 oz Lime Simple Syrup (you can use Rose’s Lime Juice instead if you are lazy)
4 dashes Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters

Fill shaker with ice
Pour all ingredients into a shaker and shake
Serve in chilled Martini glasses

(This one is simple)

I got a fantastically epic case of alcohol poisoning from Manhattans one night. *shudder*

A LOT. This was when I was 22-ish. A friend had sold his leather jacket and we decided to drink up the proceeds. I was pretty, well, VERY hardcore back then and could definitely hold my liquor, but I met my match. I was flat on my back for a full day after that, and my friends eventually loaded me into the back of a pickup truck and drove me home. :)

Oh no! I hope those were good manhattans, at least.

If only I could remember! :)

Maybe you should replicate this experience so you can see.

Haha... the closest I've come for a while was on my 50th birthday, and I really do NOT remember that one, either. :)

That is such a shame! One should not forget Manhattans!

2 questions:

what, no cherry?


is your pom sour cherry widely available? i doesn't think i've heard of it.

1) My mom isn't a big cherry fan so I usually forego them.

2) I am not sure! But there's nothing super special about this brand-- it's just the one that they have at my local grocery store. They do also make a fig juice that I really like, though.
