Flaming Orange Gully

Flaming Orange Gully

Serves 1.

DURING OUR recent Q&A session with master mixologist Dale DeGroff here on eGullet, Dale was challenged by user "Varmint" to create "a new cocktail that we, as eGulleteers, can call our own. We'll gladly order this cocktail whenever we meet, singing your praises."

Was Dale up to the challenge? As if . . . !

Today, eGullet.com and Dale DeGroff are proud to unveil Dale's new cocktail to our thirsty audience. The Flaming Orange Gully is a spicy, sexy melange of fresh orange juice, Stolichnaya Ohranj, Angostura Bitters, Velvet Falernum Syrup, and fresh grated nutmeg (recipe follows). What went into its creation? As Dale notes, "I was really challenged because the group has very high standards when it comes to the culinary arts. I wanted something with layers of flavor and I thought the Velvet Falernum and nutmeg would provide that without getting too esoteric."

  • 1-1/2 fl oz Stolichnaya Ohranj Vodka
  • 1/2 fl oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 fl oz Velvet Falernum Syrup
  • 1 fl oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
  • 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters

Shake all ingredients well with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Garnish with a flamed orange peel and fresh grated nutmeg.
