Friday evening I am having some friends over. The weather is in the 70's. I will be serving stuffed green peppers with tomato sauce and ground meat before the blackened swordfish with veggies and roasted potatoes. We will be eating around 8:00 pm before sunset.

Do you have a drink I can impress my friends with? Thank you!

The food is kind of irrelevant since I don't recommended trying to pair cocktails with specific dishes for everyone, their tastes could vary widely.

What type of drink are you looking to serve?

The Painkiller is a traditional Caribbean tiki-style cocktail:
    1 1/2 Ounces Pampero 80 proof rum
    1 Ounce lemon juice
    1/2 Ounce light molasses
    1/2 Ounce simple syrup
    1/4 Ounce allspice liqueur or allspice dram
    2 Dashes angostura bitters
    2 1/2 Ounces seltzer
    1 Lemon twist, for garnish

    Shake all ingredients with ice until very well chilled. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice and top with seltzer. Stir lightly and garnish with the lemon twist.

Cockroach milk and Everclear. Half and Half.
Mix in a shaker with rocks.
Toss it out the window.
Open your choice of cold beer and enjoy.

That's like a White Trash Russian.

Here's a nice Prohibition cocktail that was initially created due to the low quality of the liquor available. Now, with the plethora of better bourbon available makes a great summer cocktail. At one time the New York Sour was the most popular drink in the City. It has a great mx of flavors and profiles from combining bourbon with dry red wine. The New York Sour:
    1 1/2 Ounces bourbon
    1/4 Ounce Lemon juice
    1/4 Ounce simple syrup
    1/4 Ounce dry red wine
    1 Orange and cherry flag

    In a shaker with ice add the bourbon, lemon juice and syrup. Shake until very well chilled and strain into a double rocks glass filled with ice. Float the wine on top and garnish with the flag.

Here is a quick and easy drink that is very refreshing in the summer. We got an invite to head over to our friend's condo on the Jersey City waterfront, the ladies were a bit hot on the roof deck so we whipped them up a tasty cocktail from what he had on hand. I posted this recipe earlier but never actually made the drink. The combination of prosecco, herbaceous Aperol and orange make this flavorful and cooling drink on a hot day. The Aperol Spritz:
    4 1/2 Ounces dry Prosecco
    2 1/2 Ounces Aperol
    1 Ounce club soda
    Orange wheels for garnish

    Fill a highball glass with ice. Slowly pour the prosecco over the ice. Add the Aperol and orange, top with soda.


Here's a great shot of the Statue of Liberty from my friend's roof deck:

Yes, it's a nice view. That is Liberty State Park on the other side of the marina, and behind that is Ellis Island. The Verrazano is in the background. To the left (and out of the photo) is lower Manhattan but it is hard to get a good shot of the World Trade Center since the Goldman Sachs building blocks mot of the view.

A friend of mine had an interesting take on a Sazerac and asked me to recreate it for him. They used and ginger/rosemary simple syrup which is easy to make, just add a few large slices of unpeeled ginger and a sprig of rosemary to your simple syrup and let it simmer and then steep until cool. Strain and bottle and you're ready to go. I also froze a sprig of rosemary into the ice cube for added flavor/affect. This uses two types of bourbon to give a nice, rounded mouthfeel. Rosemary-Ginger Sazerac:
    1 Ounce Buffalo Trace bourbon
    1 Ounce Woodford Reserve Bourbon
    1/8 Ounce Absinthe
    1/2 Ounce ginger-rosemary simple syrup
    3 Dashes orange bitters
    1 Lemon twist for garnish

    Swirl the Absinthe in a chilled rocks glass and add one large ice cube. Stir over ice the remaining ingredient until well chilled. Strain into rocks glass and garnish with lemon twist.

The ladies got a summer cocktail which helped with the humid and oppressive weather. We did a Peach Smash earlier, this is one of the few drinks where pineapple works great. The Pineapple Smash:
    1 1/2 Ounces Puerto Rican rum
    1/2 Laird's Applejack
    1/2 Ounce Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
    1/2 Fresh lime juice
    4-5 Pieces of pineapple
    1 Teaspoon powdered sugar
    2 Thick slices of fresh ginger
    1 Mint sprig to garnish

    Muddle mint and pineapple in a pint glass. Pour into a shaker filled halfway with ice and add the remainder of the ingredients. Shake until well chilled and pour, unstrained, into a highball or pint glass filled with ice. Garnish with mint sprig.
