How To Make A Strawberry Bourbon Fix | Drinks Made Easy

I mean it’s so simple. Just about any bro could claim to have made it up. You know what I mean: bro cool bro to build the strawberry bourbon fix you’ll start with two medium strawberries. Now, if you have a really massive strawberry, you can use one of those or a bunch of small ones.

You can adjust as to what you need. I’m really going to muddle the heck out of this next we’re going to add 3/4 of an ounce of fresh lemon juice, 3/4 of an ounce of fresh, simple syrup, which is just equal parts by volume of sugar and water and 1.75 ounces of bourbon. Now, if you want to make this a bit stronger, you can always go up to 2 ounces or dial it back to one and a half. If you want to make it a little bit, lighter cap that off into a shaker tin, that has no ice just to integrate it all.

Now we’re going to pour the contents of this into an old-fashioned glass and fill it up with shaved ice and as a little tip if you want to smooth out the top of your drink, if you have any bits of ice that are poking out, etc. Using the bottom of a disc spoon can give you a nice even level, surface garnish, with a strawberry and a little disc spoon, and there you have the strawberry bourbon fix thanks.

How To Make The Kazuo Uyeda Japanese Old Fashioned Cocktail | Drinks Made Easy

But I’d recommend picking up his cocktail book because it’s fantastic and if you’ve been in any cocktail bar, I can guarantee you that they’ve been influenced by him, but one of the coolest things about his old-fashioned is it’s all about the individual preference of the guests. Now a lot of people get really up’ti about. This is the way an old fashioned should be or that’s the way. An old fashioned should be that’s nonsense.

It comes from a punch recipe, there’s tons of variations, and this is a great example of making it how you want it and how your guest wants it with one simple recipe: building you a to Japanese old-fashioned, we’ll start with a small sugar cube, or in this Case just a half of a regular demurrer sugar cube next we’re going to add one dash or if it’s not only coming out, basically one and a half dashes of Angostura bitters and to light dashes of soda water.

Now, before you lose your mind, this is called for by mr. Ida and if you have a problem with his technique, take it up with arguably one of the greatest bartenders to ever live. He does talk about using this because it helps to break down the sugar cube, which is part of the reason why it’s become so popular all around the world. It just allows for the integration of flavor between the sugar and the bitters, and, if you think that that’s crazy, well, try making without it or try making it with water and you’ll see that water does tend to just flatten out, whereas a little bit of seltzer We’re not using soda water with sprite or sugar, etc does tend to lift it up a little bit.

But again, if you have a problem, take it up with the maestro himself. Next, we’re going to add some eye, we’re going to give it a quick, little stir and next we’re going to add the trio of garnishes, which is the hallmark of you, hate, old fashioned of a wheel of lime, lemon and orange. The lime and lemon cut, roughly to the same thickness and the orange to a double thickness, insert a nice little spoon, and this is where really the choose.

Your own adventure style of the eight old fashioned comes into play. You’re not going to produce any of the wheels. That is what the spoon is there for, so that the individual can decide how bitter and how sweet they want, their particular old fashioned or whether they want to change it up as they go through drinking their cocktail. And there you have the you yato old-fashioned, play around with the different amounts of citrus, and let us know what you think and if you have any other styles of old fashions that you particularly like.

Please recommend them thanks as always, and cheers from drakes made easy.
