Yesterday, the fine folks at the Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. actually found one of my cocktail recipes here on the ol’ blog that contains their absolutely delicious tonic. Amazingly, they seemed to really enjoy it! They’ve been having trouble coming up with a tonic/bourbon cocktail, and hopefully I’ve helped them crack the code, at least a little. Click here if you’d like to check that particular delicious concoction out.
I figured that, in honor of their discovery – and to make Friday a little extra celebratory – I’d come up with an equally delicious beverage using their other amazing product, grenadine.
Well, I think I’ve done the grenadine some serious justice. I whipped this up last night and, boyyyy, is it tasty. I call in “The Charleston” for, well, a number of reasons. First off, Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. is based out of that fine city, and it happens to be just a hop, skip and jump away from my current place of residence. Also, this cocktail bears a decent resemblance to a Manhattan, so I decided, in keeping with the spirit of location-based cocktail names, Charleston was a particularly good namesake.
Anywho, here it is.
*4 parts bourbon
*1 part sweet vermouth
*2 parts Jack Rudy Grenadine
*2 parts orgeat syrup
*1 part rose water
*Dash of orange bitters
Shake all that completely delicious goodness together and pour it in a rocks glass over some ice. My friends, you now have yourselves a divine cocktail. Really, you should try it – and you should absolutely pick up any Jack Rudy product you can get your hands on. It’s well worth the impressing of your friends and their taste buds that you’ll be able to do.
Happy Friday to all of you working folks out there. As always, thanks for reading, and see y’all on Monday!
