Master of Cocktails - The Penultimate Paragraph

by Ben Ellefsen     11. May 2015 09:01

Master of Cocktails Penultimate Paragraph

Right then all - we all ready for a cocktail? Time for #MasterofCocktails...

Today's drink is a creation based around this bad boy. It's Bathtub Gin aged in an ex-Ardbeg cask. This batch is all sold out (I did tell you all to buy it...), but there's a new batch available from the second-fill. Why, here it is.

So - this week's #MasterofCocktails is going to be a variation on the Last Word cocktail. One of my all time favourites.

Master of Cocktails - The Clover Club Cocktail

Master of Cocktails The Clover Club Cocktail

Greetings all. Time for some Gin? Gin. Yep. Everyone loves Gin. Lovely Gin.

We're making a classic cocktail for this week's #MasterofCocktails, which to be honest feels anything but. You'd swear this was a modern drink. It's called the Clover Club Cocktail - basically a gin sour with added Raspberry.

Traditionally this would be a syrup, but we're going to be using the Raspberry Liqueur from St. George Spirits.

Master of Cocktails - IL Beetz

Master of Cocktails IL Beetz

Right everyone - ready for another instalment of #MasterofCocktails? This week's is pretty awesome, and has a pretty awesome name too - IL Beetz. I'll explain the reasoning behind that later...

We're putting together this drink using FEW Spirits American Gin - super-rich and 'whisky-like'. It's more than enough to stand up to the rich, roots-y quality of the Beetroot juice we're using.

So - to business.

Master of Cocktails - Bijou Cocktail

Master of Cocktails Bijou Cocktail

Right then Ladies and Gentlemen - it's time for another #MasterofCocktails. Excited? Oh yes.

This week we're making a Chartreuse-heavy 'Bijou Cocktail' recipe, though we're making it with slightly less Green Chartreuse as to not overwhelm the drink.

'Bijou' of course, is French for 'Jewel', and the cocktail's name comes from the colours of precious jewels (emerald, diamond and ruby) being similar to the colour of the ingredients (Chartreuse, Gin and Vermouth).

Master of Cocktails - Pink Gin

Master of Cocktails Pink Gin

Well greetings one and all. Ready for another installment of #MasterofCocktails? Good then.

This week's is a very, very straightforward drink, but one that seems to have fallen somewhat out of favour recently. We're making a Pink Gin recipe. Probably one of the very first Gin cocktails?

The original recipe here calls for simply gin and bitters, served at room temperature, in a tumbler. Not that, obviously.

Master of Cocktails - The Jinger Ninja

Master of Cocktails The Jinger Ninja

Well greetings one and all. Time for another round of #MasterofCocktails methinks. Oh yes.

This week we're making a super-delicious Japanese-y sort of tea-based gin sour sort of affair. Trust me - it's yummers. It's called The Jinger Ninja, a name which should make sense as we go through the recipe.

We're using a pretty decent grade of Matcha for this drink. That's important, as although we do want *some* bitterness, we don't want it overpowering. I prefer the sweet, grassy tones given by something like this...

Master of Cocktails Flower Arranging With Mr Gumby

Hi there folks. If you tuned into the @MasterOfMalt Twitter feed on Sunday night for another edition of #MasterofCocktails, you may have noticed it was a bit late. Sorry about that. Been doing a spot of flooring. My whole house smells like young Bourbon. I quite like it.

Right then. Onto today's cocktail. This'n's called 'Flower Arranging with Mr Gumby'. Reasons for the name will become apparent very soon.

Master of Cocktails - I am not a Negroni

Master of Cocktails I Am Not A Negroni

'sup cocktail fans. Ready for something a bit special for #MasterofCocktails this week? Of course you are. Just so we're clear though, we're not making a Negroni. That's even clarified in the cocktail's name - I am not a Negroni.

We're going to be making our drink with fully certified Batshit Mental, Negroni-aged Bathtub Gin. This is the superb Bathtub Gin, aged for 4 months in a 50 litre cask that previously held a batch of Negroni.

Beefeater Global Bartender Competition 2014 MIXLDN

The Beefeater Global Bartender Competition (now the fourth biggest cocktail competition in the world, we're told) brought finalists from 30 separate countries together in London this week for 2014's grand final.

Last time around Jason Williams from Sydney's The Rook took the crown with the brilliantly named ‘Werewolves of London’*, a drink that used our Frankincense Bitters! (You can now find the new and improved version of these Frankincense Bitters as part of the Bitter Bastards range.) This year, after three days of intense judging, we can reveal that the Global Champion is Brandon Phillips from The Duck Inn in Chicago. Congratulations Brandon!
