New Drinks for Rush IV

Folks, there are more drinks to come than those of the previous posts:


Rush Drinks I
Rush Drinks II
Rush Drinks III



So here we are:



Greyhound Highball
This is another highball [I definitely have to write a post about promoting highballs] - instead of grapefruit juice of an ordinary greyhound, we will use our house made grapefruit soda. And we will rim the drink with a little cinnamon sea salt - of course it will be based on gin [what a question...].

Popcorn Sour
This will be a drink, which is rather more complex and ambitious. It is actually a whiskey [speak bourbon] sour; the whiskey is infused popcorn and vanilla and finally fat washed with butter. As a craft sour, it also utilizes fresh lemon, rich syrup and glair [yeah - this is how we call egg white].
The bourbon [I plan to use Elijah Craig, which is in my eyes one of the greatest classic bourbons and definitely the best value straight whiskey on the market] becomes super smooth, due to the infusion - but the strength of the EC is still keeping it amazingly focussed; and the egg white gives a lot of froth and an elegant mouth feel.

Boost the Bramble
One of the best drink from the late last millennium; one creation of Dick Bradsell.
There is not much to improve - but still you can pimp it a little: The crème de cassis is macerated with fresh blackberries just to give it the extra fruit it deserves and besides of the classic gin, fresh lemon juice and rich syrup it gets a raspberry powder rim [pulverized freeze dried raspberries and sugar].

La Dulce Vita
I really love Dulce de Leche - it is one of the most intriguing sweets, you could think of [I will tell you abou, how to make Dulce de Leche, when I will discuss this drink in detail]. It is a staple from South America - it is basically caramelized milk.
In this drink we are shaking this with Cognac - as it is a creamy cocktail a VS will be sufficient - and we add some cream. Topping? Caramelized marshmallows - what else. It is decadent, whimsical and playful.

And now you have those - all alcoholic drinks, which I am planning for Rush. Any suggestions for more craziness?
