TGIF-The French Pearl

I’ve had the opportunity to shoot a lot of cocktail recipes for clients in the studio and many are now sitting idle on hard drives collecting virtual dust, so I decided its a shame not to share, and want to start a Friday tradition of posting a recipe a week. Let me know what you think and hopefully I can inspire some of you to try one of these tasty libations?

“The French Pearl”

2 parts Plymouth Gin
¼ part Pernod Absinthe
¾ part fresh lime juice
¾ part simple syrup
1 mint sprig

Muddle mint with lime juice in a mixing glass. Add additional ingredients, and shake over ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass using a fine mesh strainer.

Bloody Bones for Halloween

I wanted to haul out this shot from the Oval Vodka project for Halloween. To create the spooky look for the “Bloody Bones” cocktail, I used my son’s humidifier behind and below with a paper towel tube directing the vapor up to just behind the glass. I didn’t have ready access to dry ice and noticed how the vapor from the atomizing humidifier in his room had that same effect. The cocktail itself is very tasty and perhaps might be a fresh offering at your next Halloween party.
