For those of you at UGA Law with me, you know that this weekend is the Equal Justice Foundation's charity auction. In honor of this great event, I've created a barrel aged cocktail to auction off. If you like what you see, stop by on Saturday and place a bid.
I started with a base of Whistlepig 10 Rye. If you haven't had the chance to try Whistlepig, I strongly suggest you do so. It's got the ferocious bite of a strong Rye, but it still retains the smoothness of the finest of whiskies. Coming in at 100 proof, it's going to take over whatever cocktail you put it in. Subsequently I did my best to dress it up and show off its bold flavor profile (ginger, vanilla, clove, and pine). My efforts are detailed below:
1.5 oz Whistlepig 10 Rye Whiskey
.5 oz St. Germain
.5 oz Aperol
.25 Amaro Ramazzotti
1 dsh Orange Bitters
1 dsh Angostura Bitters
Aged in a Port Wine Barrel
Serve straight up.
UPDATE: Sold for $105. This might be a recurring thing. Stay posted.
