I was asked to create some special cocktails for a party that Remodelista is throwing ahead of their annual NYC Market this weekend. To me, special means wild flavours, and the more local, the better.
It has been fun. Brooklyn juniper berries, New Jersey sumac, and New York state hooch (rye, gin and vermouth). Add a lick of Massachusetts maple syrup, and we've got: the Triple Juniper (left), and a Sumac Sour (right).
You can find the juniper cocktail recipe at Gardenista.
Now all I have to do is mix several hundred of them.
