Essential Liquor #15
For our recipe this week, I combined the SoCo Old Fashioned with a mix celebrated in Dr. Cocktail's Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails recipe book (our new favorite recipe book). The mix is called Jasper's Secret Mix and it consists of the juice of 12 limes, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1 1/4 ounces of Angostura Bitters, and 1/2 a nutmeg, grated. Over the weekend with Melanie, Aaron, and Tonia, we explored this fine sour for a few creations. Try this one...
2 1/2 ounces Southern Comfort
1/2 ounce of Triple Sec
3 ounces of Jasper's Secret Mix
Shake, strain, and enjoy on a hot day. If it is too sour, reduce the Jasper's.
