Top Off Champagne The newest trend to finish cocktails with a sweet foam. At home, add this deceptively easy topping to Champagne cocktails. Just take a Whip Plus ($98) loaded with cream chargers ($10 for 10) and froth one cup of St-Germain liqueur mixed with one cup of egg whites. And what's great is that foam keeps for up to a week in your refrigerator.
Give Eggnog a Rich Kick Eggnog is a holiday classic, but the same old flavor profile gets ho-hum. Infuse bourbon with a maple-syrupy essence using mushrooms. Throw 1 oz. dried candy cap mushrooms into a bottle of bourbon or cognac for a week, then use the infused liquor in your eggnog (recipe here). After the holidays, the leftover bourbon will give Manhattans an extra edge.
Infuse Pomegranate Juice Why not make a favorite cocktail into a festive seasonal cocktail by adding in an ounce of clove-infused pomegranate juice to a finished vodka tonic? To make the juice, add ½ oz. cloves to 4 cups pomegranate juice and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes, strain away the cloves then chill before adding to cocktails.
Fresh produce for fresh cocktails One of Biancaniello’s signature drinks is the Roquette, named after the French word for its star ingredient, arugula. We think of it as a side salad with alcohol...
Muddle the following three ingredients:
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
¾ oz. agave syrup
½ cup wild arugula
Add 2 oz. gin, then shake and strain over ice.
Now you need a bart cart to store everything. At Little Paris Antiques, this golden-roped model ($1,200) was made in Italy in 1960; it's feminine yet still practical.
Whether a small dinner party or your annual holiday rager: The secret to making guests happy is getting a delicious drink in their hands tout de suite.
