Crazy Cabin Fever Cocktails – Day 8 – March 22, 2020

Sidecar Mocktail, Sidecar, Negroni, & Dry Pink Gin Martini – all cocktails tonight are inspired by the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries movie coming out tomorrow. We are not affiliated in any way but love the TV series and are looking forward to the movie. (recipes below the video)

We lost the facebook live video so tonight’s video is from Twitter:

Sidecar Mocktail (no alcohol)
3 oz apple juice
1  oz lemon juice
and zest of most of an orange.
Combine over ice, shake, strain into coupe, & garnish with orange zest
If you want it a little lighter add sparkling water. This has the intensity of a real cocktail though without the sparkling.

Into a shaker with ice pour 3 nips of brandy, one of lemon juice and 3 dashes of dry Curacao. AKA…
3 oz brandy
1 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz dry Curacao (or cointreau, or triple sec or other orange liqueur)
Shake over ice, strain and serve

In a tumbler one nip of gin, one nip of sweet vermouth and one nip of campari. Add ice and soda water. Stir gently. Serve with orange peel. AKA…
Build in glass over ice
1 oz gin
1 oz sweet Vermouth (we prefer Campana Antica Formula)
We replaced 1 oz of Campari with:
3/4 oz dry vermouth
1/4 oz simple syrup
3 dashes Agnostura bitters
The reason we replace the Campari is that we don’t want to consume synthetic red dye (even food grade.)
Stir gently and add a splash of sparkling water
Serve with orange peel

Dry Pink Gin Martini
Take a martini glass and swill a drop or two of dry vermouth around the inside. Pour four nips of gin into your shaker, shake, strain and add. Decorate with an onion or olive. Be prepared for him to gulp it down and request another. If he wants his stirred – an affectation, I assure you – then have a bottle of gin always on ice to provide the requisite chill. A cold hearted drink, I have always thought. You can vary it with a pink gin – which is just pure gin with three drops of angostura bitters – if he has maritime leanings.” – from a Miss Fisher’s Murder Mystery book (I’m going to have to go back and figure out which one because Tim closed all of the tabs)

Coat a coupe glass with a few drops of dry vermouth then in a shaker
1 dash angostura bitters
4 oz gin
Shake over ice and strain into your coupe glass
Add an olive if you like
