This is my second entry for @curious_concoctions #curiouscurdle comp.
See the previous post for the milk madness and method.
Continuing my riffing theme I spiced up a Martini 🍸 .
🌶 A Devilish Martini 🌶
150ml Gin (@beefeater24)
75ml Dry Vermouth (@vermouthdolin)
1 Fresh Chilli
A few slice of fresh Ginger
Fresh, coarsely ground, black pepper
50ml Lemon Juice
Warm the milk with the chilli, Ginger and black pepper and simmer on a very low heat for a good ten minutes.
Add to the Martini and lemon mix and strain in the same way as my previous post until it becomes clear.
Serve in a frozen Nick and Nora (thanks to the lovely people at @mustard.diner for the glass 💪) and garnish with a lemon twist. Sip. Enjoy.

HERBAL BITE FIZZ
- 45ml/1,5oz @mementodrink
- 30ml/1oz @gimber_drink
- 30ml/1oz Organic Apple Juice
- Tonic to top
Shake all but Tonic with ice and strain in Highball glass. Add some clear ice balls (thanks @icelander_be) and top with tonic. Garnish with ginger and thyme (and if preferred, sip through a reusable straw)!
Some time ago I had the honor of receiving a bottle of GIMBER 🇧🇪 a brand new, all natural, Belgian concentrate made from organic Peruvian Ginger 🇵🇪 Now, let me start with saying: I LOVE the spice 😍 Every time I have a cold, I drown myself in freshly cut Ginger Tea 🍵 my fav Whisky Tipple is Sam Ross' Penicillin 🥃 and my bar is stocked with multiple syrups, liqueurs and preserved Ginger. 💛 And still... GIMBER caught me by surprise! 👅 What a beautiful punch it packs!
So, recently, when I had Bram of @and_then_I_had_little_drink over (who doesn't fanboy over ginger as much as I do 😅) I thought it was the perfect occasion to create a drink, one that pleases both skeptic and lover! ✨ With #TourneeMinerale still going strong in Belgium💧 I decided my first run with it should be non-alcoholic! I started with a base of Memento, a hydro-distillate with Mediterranean roots 🌿🇮🇹 added the above-mentioned ingredients ET VOILA, the 'Herbal Bite Fizz' was born.🍹 Stay tuned for more Ginger action! ❤️ Drinkstagram, hope you had a great start of the week!

My favorite cocktails are the ones that are so balanced it is hard to detect their individual components. .
This cocktail from the NoMad Cocktail Book by Leo Robitschek is one such cocktail. Some will see St. Germain in the ingredients list and say, “Oh, I love St. Germain.” But if you blind tasted this treat, it is likely it would take you a while to recognize its elderflower goodness tucked amongst the other flavors..
That’s the kind of cocktail I can never get enough of!.

🐑.5 oz Bigallet China China

Making clear ice isn’t terribly hard, and it definitely isn’t expensive. Simply fill up a cooler (probably $8 at the store) with water, remove the top, and freeze it. Remove it before it freezes completely and you should be able to start cutting it into cubes. Be sure to use a cheap knife that you don’t care about. The ice cutting in-progress in these pictures is for small cubes, to be used for stirring and building carbonated drinks.
The pictured drink is an Elder Fashion, an old favorite made with gin, St-Germain, and orange (and fig) bitters.
Knickerbocker (Sort Of)
Since making it, I've been wanting to find a use for raspberry syrup. I kept coming back to this cocktail, but it traditionally calls for a St. Croix rum and a dry Curacao which I don't have. However, for now a Cuban rum and some Cointreau will do.
The fresh berries are wonderful on the nose. The drink is a bit fruity, finishing with the rum alcohol flavors. While I'm sure it will be better with more traditional ingredients, it is pretty yummy as is...and hella pretty.
What I used:
.5oz Homemade Raspberry Syrup
1oz Fresh Lime Juice
2oz Bacardi Gold Rum
Garnished with fresh strawberry, blackberry and blueberries.

Negroni | Barr Hill R.S.V.P. barrel selection Tom Can Gin | St. George Spirits Bruto Americano | Cocchi Vermouth di Torino | First, Led Zeppelin IV and a Negroni is perfection. Second, I love @barrhillgin and would love to live a nice long life filled with many more Negronis, but Barr Hill, you need to get your peeps to slow down when they’re driving. My wife and I were walking our dog earlier and a car all tripped out in Barr Hill logos with a Vermont license plate was flying through my Portland neighborhood as though it was the Indianapolis 500. I’m sure they were probably racing back to the distillery, but good god, they needed to chill and drive the speed limit, especially in a residential neighborhood on a snowy day. Enough rant. This Negroni was delish and the perfect cocktail to sip while prepping President’s Day pizza.

Feels good to finally be back at it. I’m a week and a bit behind, but picked up where I left off....kind of....
👎I have a bad knee thats been doing SO WELL the last 6-8 months.You even saw me doing jumps recently in my new program!💥
👎While moving things and shovelling snow, ice and water with the flood, I did something to my knee and it’s been sore for the last few days.•
🙌I tried to jump back into my step workout tonight but my knee was having NONE of it. I kept pushing but knew I was causing myself more damage, so I stopped....but I didn’t quit!
💕‼️ I pulled up the menu to my hundreds of other programs and picked one that has less impact and got a workout done! •
👎I’m putting a pause on my step program for a few days and will go back to the basics with a little 21DF for a bit! So thankful for so many options so that I can keep moving forward!👍

I've been wanting to buy a bottle of Mezcal for some time now, and today was finally the day. For those who aren't familiar with mezcal, like tequila it is agave based. In fact all tequila is technically mezcal, but not all mezcal is tequila. Mezcal can be made from a variety of agave plants. Tequila is specifically made from the blue agave. Mezcal like what I purchased is known for being smoky in flavor.
This drink is smoky on the nose and on the palate. Smokiness is certainly at the front of this drink...and I love smoky flavors in my cocktails. It finishes a bit tart with citrus notes from the lime and Aperol. The lime I used was not in its prime, so it's possible in the future a more ideal lime may lend a stronger flavor. I couldn't really place much of the chartreuse flavor here..odd because generally I find it to dominate.
What I used:
. 75oz Fresh Lime Juice
.75oz Yellow Chartreuse .75. Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Garnished with a dehydrated lime wheel
