2 for 1 this week. First, the Black Apple Martini via Cocktail Times:
- 2oz Phillips Union Whiskey
- 1oz Apple Schnapps
- 1oz Cranberry juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Phillips Union Whiskey is a new blend of Kentucky Bourbon and Canadian Whiskey. It also comes in cherry and vanilla flavors. The cherry should be good in a Manhattan, though I don't know if I'll ever run into this stuff around here. I'll probably just substitute bourbon, or blend my own without flavors.
I'm adding the Flirtini because I've got a bottle of champagne in the fridge and this sounds tasty:
- 2 pieces fresh pineapple
- 1/2oz Cointreau or Triple Sec
- 1/2oz Vodka
- 1oz Pineaple Juice
Muddle pineapple and Cointreau in a mixing glass. Add ice, vodka, and pineapple juice. Shake, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with champagne.
