When I am cooking in Montisi for Gail's group, Brad is happy to take on bartender duties. Last Sunday, Brad and I created some cocktails with our friends in mind.
The "Great Escape":
1/2 ounce Amaretto
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce orange juice
Fill glass with Prosecco
How about a "Bella Bugalu"? Fun and "slightly twisted"!
1 oz. Grand Marnier or other orange liquore
1 oz. cranberry juice
fill glass with prosecco and twist of orange
Jerry was more of a challenge. I know he likes rum and gin. Brad decided since we would be in Italy, Campari would be in order. So.......... "Le DeQuetteville":
Dash of gin (or vodka)
2 dashes Campari
Top with 5 oz. of Prosecco. Twist a mint leaf and discard. Garnish with a twist of orange and lemon.
Next he made a "Gail Flirtini", so she will have an excuse if she is "over served".
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1.2 oz vodka
1 oz. pineapple juice
3 oz prosecco
Brad tried to make me a "Palmabellatini" using my usual Pinot Grigio. He combined an oz. of peach schnapps, and oz of pomegranate juice, and 4 oz. of wine. It was disgusting! I'll stick with the two I posted yesterday.
FInally, Brad came up with a drink for himself. He is a bourbon guy. He tried citron vodka, bourbon and prosecco with a squueze of lemon, for a "Brad Did It". He actually liked it!
