Locksley Distilling: Especial
Cocktail no. 25 is one of our own. It was inspired by an amazing evening in one of the late Sasha Petraske’s famed abodes, Dutch Kills, in Queens. An incredible bartender’s choice led us down the path to create a gin/brandy/egg-nog kind of affair, which is very boozy, and wintery – ideal for Christmas Day when you just want to take it to the next level. Truly eSPecial… Night night!
50ml Sir Robin of Locksley® Gin
25ml Cardinal Mendoza Brandy
15ml (1 tbsp) Simple Syrup (1 part water to 2 parts sugar)
4 drops Mexican Molé Bitters – The Bitter End
1 Egg White
Grated Spiced Chocolate
Dry shake the wet ingredients… add ice and shake again. Pour into a Coupe or a Martini glass and grate Spiced Chocolate over to finish.
If you’re in New York and fancy a treat, Dutch Kills are at:
27-24 Jackson Avenue
Long Island City, NY 11101
