You know that whole school of thought that when you die your whole life flashes before your eyes? We’ve recently decided that we could probably enjoy a separate experience where our life in cocktails also presents itself. That’s why we’ll be bringing our life in drinks to you on a regular basis. (Plus that kinda means that ordering a fun cocktail can classify as a tax deduction… See? Everyone wins!)
Recently we stopped by The Huntley Taverne in Summit, New Jersey and enjoyed a few Billionaire cocktails with our friends Olivia and Kirsten.
This drink is a blend blend of bourbon, pomegranate and lemon. It packs a punch in a really delicious way. If you think you’re not a bourbon drinker, give it a go with this… it may convert you.
- 2 oz bourbon (use a good smooth one!)
- 1 oz lemon
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 1/2 oz grenadine
- 1/4 absinthe
- 1 lemon wheel
Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass, add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with lemon. If you’re not the martini glass type, fill a rocks glass with ice and enjoy the ride.
