Today’s cocktail – the Steam 75 from John deBary of PDT – is a Reyka vodka-based time bomb ready to go off in your brain.
You know that point in the night when you lose your balance but figure out the best things to say to close the deal with that chick at the party? We reached that point last night from too many of those Steam 75 cocktails. We should avoid tasty vodka drinks, but y’all should get a bit more intimate with ’em.
This weekend’s still going to have sunsets at 8:30, so you should start outside with it, then stumble your way back in. Here’s the recipe:
1 1/2 oz. Reyka Vodka
3/4 oz. AITA Rhubarb
3/4 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. bourbon strawberry puree
Shake and strain into chilled coupe.
Top with 1 oz brut champagne.
Garnish with sprigs of lavender.
