"Death & Co: Modern Classic Cocktails"

Recommended Posts

Can't say for Deathy recipes, but here's a ton of Apricot Liqueur recipes. It is used quite frequently. If your tastes run toward the bitter and complex, the Averna Jim Jam is wonderful:

that is a great drink! Just made a Yarm riff on the Jim Jam called Sooner or Later (bourbon, averna, apricot, lemon, bitters, soda) that is also splendid.

From last weekend, a round of Green Flash(es) with Damoiseau rhum agricole from Guadeloupe, lemon juice, honey syrup, St. George absinthe, Louis Roederer Champagne brut.

 

I just love this cocktail. And I actually saw a hint of a green flash recently.

Its gin counterpart is great as well. North by Northwest (also by Brian Miller) made with Old Harbor San Miguel Southwestern gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, St. George absinthe, Louis Roederer Champagne brut. Elegant and crisp.

There are a lot of things I forgot to post in this thread. I might have to make them again to refresh my memory!

 

This one I remember. Sling of Aphrodite (Joaquin Simo) with La Favorite rhum agricole amber (oops, grabbed the white by mistake), Clear Creek pear brandy (Etter's superlative aged pear eau-de-vie), Fuji apple juice (Joe's Kids), homemade cinnamon bark syrup.

 

If you are going to mess with rhum agricole, the result better be superior to the rhum itself! Joaquin let us down on that one. It is a bit like dumbed down agricole. Probably ok for his most timid clients who haven't been introduced to agricole... But yeah... Next!

This is a winner, though I wish it had a different name. 

Gin, Aperol, lime and grapefruit juices, simple, chartreuse rinse.

Agreed and I've told her, but Jimi Hendrix fandom will do that. Great drink though.

Is there a good reference for this Green Flash recipe? Most I find seem to be some abomination of coconut rum, Midori and other specious ingredients!

 

The glass for the second cocktail looks like glasses you used to get (maybe you still can?) with a bottle of Perrier Jouet champagne!

Not-Quite-Georgia Julep: equal parts cognac and Laird's apple brandy with a little bit of peach liqueur. It's interesting. I don't know if I like it.

How big a flute? or approx ratio of shake to champ? The flutes from my grandfather are pretty tiny.

I made this recently too. 

 

Something seemed a bit wrong to me, judging by the colour difference perhaps I squeezed the wrong grapefruit.

Thanks! Just occurred to me that this is the Death & Co. book thread (Duh!) which of course I have and the cocktail is likely listed in there! :wacko:

Hahaha. Glad I could help! ;)

 

Here is Sade's Taboo (Jessica Gonzalez) made with Pierre Ferrand 1840 cognac (substituted for Hine H cognac), Lillet blanc (substituted for... Cocchi Americano), Martini Gran Lusso sweet vermouth (substituted for Dolin rouge), Boy Drinks World grapefruit bitters (substituted for Bittermens hopped grapefruit bitters). Grape-forward, lots of spices, pepper and some bitterness from the Gran Lusso. It's nice.

Last week I started a half-batch of the pecan-infused Buffalo Trace. I just made a Buffalo Soldier: a couple ounces of the flavoured bourbon with a quarter ounce of Demerara syrup. I think the seasoning applied to the nuts (salt, pepper and cayenne) makes it. Or, at least, it turns a very sweet drink into something I can drink.

St. Matilda (Phil Ward) with Bosc pear, tequila Ocho plata, Etter vieille poire williams aged pear eau-de-vie, lemon juice, simple syrup.

 

This tequila is especially flavorful, it is like the rhum agricole of tequilas, and it didn't disappoint in this cocktail. Lovely vegetal notes throughout. Very well done. I suspect my version is dryer than the original since I used pear eau-de-vie instead of liqueur.

The 18th Century is pretty good if you use Carpano instead of subbing in something else, be it Dolin or Punt.

Finally got my hands on some Yellow Chartreuse, and tried out the Naked and Famous

Smoky and quite sour up front. The finish, to me, is almost exactly like fresh orange juice.

      I dont believe that any English translation of Carêmes works exist. An incomplete version was published in 1842 (I think) but even the that version seems lackluster for the few recipes it does cover. I think it's time the world looks to its past, but I don't speak great French and it's a huge task to undertake. I hopefully plan on publishing this work and anyone who helps me will get a very fair cut, and if we decide not to publish it, I'll put it out on the internet for free. I'm working in Google docs so we can collaborate. I'm first cataloging the index to cross reference the pre-existing incomplete English version to give us a reference of what yet needs to be done, and from there we will go down the list of recipies and Translate them one by one. Simple google translate goes only so far, as it is 1700s French culinary terms and phrases being used. I'd like to preserve as much of Carêmes beautiful and flowery language as possible. Who's with me?

      I have seen referenced in several places on the internet, including Wikipedia, a stat about escoffier recommending 40 minutes for scrambled eggs in a Bain Marie. I cant find where this number is from. On Wikipedia it refers to the book I currently own, the "Escoffier le guide culinaire" with forward by Heston Blumenthal by h. L. Cracknell...specificly page 157 for the 40 minute cooking time of scrambled eggs but it's not in my book on that page! Even tho there is the recipe for scrambled eggs on that page... I've seen the 1903 first edition online.. And it's not in there either.... Where is this number from?? Id like to know in case there is some even more complete book or something out there that I'm missing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

      In the post below, there was a link to what looks to be a terrific book on beef cutting,  "The Art of Beef Cutting: A Meat Professional's Guide to Butchering and Merchandising".

      Reading some of the reviews on Amazon, I came across this video which I thought extremely educational, particularly seeing as I just bought a mixed 1/4 Wagyu carcass and wanted to learn more about the cuts I received , and I thought others might be interested.  Its long, but I found it much easier to understand than just looking at photos. Also referenced was the free pdf/webpage CFIA MEAT CUTS MANUAL.

      Hi.  I'm brand new to this site.  I used to be on Chowhound but I see now that that site is a mess. I found this site and it looks pretty cool.  The main reason I joined is  I’m looking for recommendations for a restaurant to hold my wedding in March 2018. We were hoping maybe in Brooklyn but we are open to anything interesting. There will be 55-60 people and the ceremony will also be at the restaurant. I’m thinking of a brunch/early afternoon affair, most likely on a weekend. Would love to find a funky/old school/unique/charming type of place for my sweetheart. Inexpensive please! Thank you in advance!
