Random note – this project fuels me and keeps me going.
Please do yourself a favor and check out Death & Company’s cocktail book. I bought my book from the actual bar – took a special day trip to NYC on that rickety ass China bus (seriously, doe – I love you, China bus) just to visit – that’s how strongly I feel about it!
I tasted another patron’s drink “Too Old to Die Young” I believe it was called – and it had peanut butter infused rum.
So, in honor of that amazing evening I had at D&C – I offer you this…
3oz Amish Peanut Butter Marshmallow Spread infused Rhum Barbancourt (4yrs, 3 stars)
2oz Fresh Cherry Juice
1oz Cherry Kirsch
1oz Homemade Orgeat (Recipe also from D&C book)
1/2oz Fig syrup
Shake with ice for ca. 30sec (if you can stand it) strain into a Coupe glass and garnish with fresh cherries. So good!!!
For the peanut butter infusion – mix half a teaspoon of peanut butter with 3oz of rum, until rum turns opaque and peanut butter is dissolved. Strain. I will do a special post just for the Orgeat soon… SPR
