Since you are doing a cream-based sauce and most likely butter with the lobster I would suggest not going with anything too heavy. Something with citrus is always good like the Last Word I posted above.

A few others you can try are the Aperol Spritz:

    4 1/2 Ounces dry Prosecco
    2 1/2 Ounces Aperol
    1 Ounce club soda
    Lime wheels for garnish

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




and the Tifozi:

    1 1/2 Ounces Campari
    1 1/2 Ounces Punt e Mes
    3 Lime wheels
    3 Ounces San Pellegrino Aranciata (orange)

    Fill a highball glass with ice and add lime wheels. Short shake the Campari and Punt e Mes and then pour into glass. Top with Pellegrino.

Wow thank you!

Thank you kindly! I will let you know how it turns out. Also will give you the credit.

Many thanks!

I'll be trying this one!
I only have Lamarca though.

Seems like I've had it but, forgotten it.

No problem.

Tell them you made it yourself, no one needs to know. If you really want to show off tell them that the word 'Tifosi' means crazy soccer fan in Italian.

La Marca should be fine. While it is not a brut it does have a crisp taste so it would work well.

In reading through all these amazing recipes for drinks, I felt like sharing one of my favorites.

Step 1. Find a comfortable spot.
Step 2. Holler for wife to come here.
Step 3. Ask her for a beer, and make sure it's cold dammit.
Step 4. look at her with that disgusted look till she opens it for you.
Step 5. drink and enjoy.

There is no trademark on this drink, so all are free to distribute this freely.

Do you have anything purple??

jacy


So, by request, here is Jacy's Purple Rain:


    1 1/2 Ounce London Dry Gin
    1/2 Ounce Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
    1/2 Ounce St. Germain
    1/2 Ounce Crème Yvette
    10 Ripe Blueberries
    6 Mint Leaves

    In a mixing glass muddle 8 blueberries and 5 mint leaves with the maraschino. Add the gin, Crème Yvette, St. Germain and ice and stir until well chilled. Double strain into a coupe and garnish with the remaining blueberries and mint leaf.




St. Germain is a relatively new liqueur which was pivotal in reinvigorating the world of cocktails. It is made of elderflowers and other botanicals and has a sweet and citrusy nose. It is produced by the same company that reintroduced Crème Yvette after a near 50 year absence.

One of my favorite cocktail bars is Employees Only in New York. They take a huge amount of credit for the cocktail bar renaissance and besides making all the traditional cocktails from the past they also create many unique ones of their own. One that I typically order is the Billionaire:

2 Ounces high proof bourbon
1 Ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 Ounce simple syrup
1/2 Ounce grenadine made with pomegranates
1/4 Ounce Absinthe
1 lemon wheel for garnish

Combine bourbon, lemon juice, absinthe simple syrup and grenadine in a shaker over ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with the lemon wheel. Wink at Bernie Sanders while not paying your fair share.

How pretty! I adore that you called it Purple Rain...and knew that's what I was referencing!


I have a couple of questions, bear in mind that I don't really drink (so I don't know much about alcohol).

Did you just create that drink? If so, that's amazing.
Is there another 'known' cocktail that is similar at all?

I will have to check and see if those products are all available in Canada. Would be fun to try and make, maybe when the warm weather gets here.

Thank you so much, my talented friend!

'Jacy's Purple Rain'. It has your name in it too.

Sort of. It is based on other cocktails I make so once you get the hang of what flavor profiles work well with each other you just have to get the proportions right with new ingredients. St. Germain is easy, it pairs with almost anything, so much so that it is jokingly referred to as 'Bartender's Ketchup'. The Luxardo adds some sweetness and dryness and the Crème Yvette, besides adding that great color, also has some sweet berry-like notes so it all works well together with the fresh mint and berries.

If not, let me know and I can help out getting them.

No problem, let me know if you want something else.

I have one more question, lol.

Is there a strong flavour of alcohol, or is it subtle?
I rarely drink, but have liked beverages in the past like Pina Colada, Brown Cow, Singapore Sling...Bailey's on ice.
(booze that doesn't taste boozey, lol)

I would say it is noticeable but not overpowering sort of like the Singapore Sling. You can always stir it longer for a bit more dilution or serve it over ice.

If you like the Singapore Sling there are plenty of other Slings that are great warm weather drinks. I do a bunch with muddled herbs, fruits and vegetables from the garden.

To be honest I would probably be happy with something fruity or chocolate...alcohol not necessary.
I have never been able to have a few drinks and get happy like other people.

Such a lightweight...2 drinks and I'm the life of the party for 3 minutes before I feel queasy and want to lay down.
But hey, someone has to be the designated driver, right?
