Cocktail Experiments

If you’re playing Red Dead Redemption like my husband is, you may have come across a recipe for the St. Denis Sazerac. This was delicious to sip while watching my husband play the game.

This classic is made by rinsing a glass with absinthe, then dropping in some ice. Shake 2 oz. cognac or brandy, 1 cube of sugar and 2 dashes bitters in a shaker with ice, then strain into the absinthe-washed glass.

For my second cocktail of the evening, I wanted to give a new spin to an old favorite: the Manhattan. I substituted vermouth for PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur and maraschino cherries for pomegranate arils in this Pomegranate Manhattan. Mix 2 oz. rye whiskey, 1/2 oz. PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur and a couple dashes of bitters in a shaker with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish with pomegranate arils. Cheers!
