Vieux Carré

In my purse, I keep our swizzle sticks from the original Vieux Carré cocktails we had at the Hotel Monteleone Carousel Bar. When our Vieux Carrés arrive, I discretely slip them in when the bartender isn’t looking and we reminisce about our time at the historic hotel.

We tried this take on a classic Brooklyn during the Maker’s 46 release party held at one of our favorite bars, Beaker & Flask in Portland, Oregon. Of all the cocktails stirred and shaken that evening, this one best preserved the true essence of the spirit.

When I bounded down the Hotel Monteleone staircase to the Kahlúa Coffee Bar on my second morning at Tales of the Cocktail I thought, “Kahlúa in my coffee sounds like a delicious way to begin to the day!” Little did I know I was about to experience what would become one of my favorite brunch cocktails.

Going through the Bakon Vodka website, we did find one recipe that was pretty tasty. As a bonus it’s also maybe the third or fourth cocktail I’ve ever heard of that uses Midori, and is not sickening sweet.

Tasting New Deal Distillery’s Hot Monkey Pepper Vodka caused me to try to create what I think is a HDirty as the Gulf of Mexico. Here’s an off-the-cuff recipe that we camp up with and enjoyed last night. All the better if the olives are stuffed with garlic or cheese to further “pollute” the drink.

Shanghai Lemon Drop

In addition to lemon, and of course lemon drops, I’ve become more or less an addict of ginger, of late. I’ve made my own ginger-infused/flavored/call-it-what-you-will vodka for some time. But of late my concoction seems too sweet, and I have been preferring the sharper bite of Yazi Ginger Vodka.

A Classic Lemon Drop

While walking through Portland today, I suddenly felt little raindrops tickling my lips. “Naughty raindrops,” I thought as I licked them away, “it’s about time I replaced you with a classic lemon drop.”
