Neapolitan Nice Cream Cake

My Recipes
Spiced Banana Amaro Bourbon Cocktail
“…in the darkness there must come out to light.” - Bob Marley. Figured we’d change it up from the previous dark shot to light with this amazing little concoction using the spiced banana syrup I made recently. @cocktailexplorer posted a great shot of an Amaro Sour (@btparsons) which immediately peaked my interest because I love NY sours, whisky, riffs on classics, amaro, experimenting…well, you get the point. Anywho, you’re gonna wanna make this one friends… . 1.5 oz amaro (I had Amaro di Toscana on hand, wanted something with bite) 3/4 oz bourbon 1/2 oz lemon juice 3/4 oz spiced banana syrup @scrappysbitters chocolate bitters 1 egg white Dry shake all ingredients, add ice, shake again and fine strain. . Banana syrup: (took @colljeffers recipe and tweaked) 1 sliced banana, 3-4 all spice, 1 tsp vanilla extract, some fresh grated nutmeg, 1 cup water and 1 cup demarara sugar in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring often until the sugar has fully dissolved. Let cool, fine strain through a sieve or cheesecloth into an air tight bottle, refrigerate. . Would be interesting to try with different amari like Cynar, Lucano etc. You can skip the failed attempt at bitters art if you like…or not, and call it abstract art like I am. ? Cheers!
Honey Beer Cocktail
As we’re in the grasps of winter I can’t help but reminisce about this tall, bubbly beer cocktail. (@craftnorcal challenged me to make a cocktail with an IPA) It just screams “summer!”. I’m pretty proud of it because I homebrewed the beer itself (a riff on @deschutesbeer's delicious Fresh Squeezed IPA). I juiced several honey tangerines and added the juice in the secondary fermentation giving some nice balance to the IPA hoppy-ness. 
Cranberry Prosecco Cocktails
Merry Christmas! Hope everyone had a great one with their loved ones. Don’t forget to put your leftover cranberry sauce to work with this post-Christmas take on a mimosa (don’t try it with the canned stuff though ya filthy animal). Cheers! . ?1 oz strained housemade cranberry simple syrup ?3/4 oz @stgermaindrinks elderflower liqueur ?Top with Prosecco ?Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs
Cranberry Prosecco Cocktail
Cocktails on the mind when you’re eating Thanksgiving dinner and find yourself thinking, “hmmm…the sauce from these cranberries would make a unique seasonal simple syrup.” ? . My wife makes an amazing homemade fresh cranberry dish every year that slow cooks in riesling, star anise, allspice, orange zest and yep, sugar. The result is deliciously tart and boozy up front, followed by sweetness and holiday spice on the end. We had our usual leftovers yesterday and I thought it’d make a great seasonal and fancy cocktail – let the experiment begin! . ?1 oz strained housemade cranberry simple syrup ?3/4 oz @stgermaindrinks elderflower liqueur ?Top with Prosecco ?Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs . Let’s be honest not all experiments work out. This one, however, will be a new post-Thanksgiving-day-breakfast tradition at our house. Move over mimosa! .

Smokey Old Fashioned
Everyone raves about #Friyay #HappyHour but why wait till 5PM when you can have a Benton’s Old Fashioned with breakfast to start your day? ☕️? __ Curiosity got the best of me once again as I recently experimented with fat washing spirits. Sounds horrible, I know. It’s not as bad as you think. I bacon fat washed some bourbon so I could recreate the cocktail that introduced fat washing to the masses – created by former PDT bartender Don Lee. Good as it was, I had to give the recipe a little twist by adding in some scotch whiskey for a little smoke to compliment the sweet and savory. Winner! __ BENTON’S [*SMOKEY] OLD FASHIONED ?1 oz bacon fat washed @bulleit bourbon ?1 oz @thefamousgrouseusa scotch whiskey ?1/4 oz real maple syrup grade A or B ?2 dashes @angosturahouse bitters __ Prepare like a normal Old Fashioned with a big #clearice rock. Edible garnish optional but always appreciated. Use to wash down a healthy dose of pancakes or waffles. Proceed with Friyay as normal.? __ #BADhack: @jamieboudreau has a great 4 min fat washing tutorial on YouTube if you want to give it a shot. It’s easy!
Peach & Pecan Infused Rye
I keep hearing that summer is ending soon. People, come to Arizona – stepping outside tells me and my scorched feet that we’ve got another 2 months, minimum. ♨️ ? __ So, I’m proceeding accordingly. After seeing my good man @apartment_bartender infuse some bourbon with peaches and pecans a while back I knew I had to give it a go. (Check out his subsequent “Peach Summer Sipper” cocktail…ridiculously good!) Fast forward to today and this is my 3rd batch. Just do it and thank me later.  __ I made a few small variations to his recipe. 1️⃣ I used rye instead of bourbon to ensure it wasn’t too sweet and 2️⃣ I roasted the pecans first (even did a batch with brown sugar sprinkled on the pecans before roasting). Success, the bite of the rye was a perfect balance to the sweetness of the ripe peaches and nuttiness (sp?) of the pecans. Got a few great cocktails to feature with this infusion coming up. __ In a 16 oz mason jar: ?Add 1 peach, no pit, diced in medium chunks ?Add 3/4 cup pecans ?Fill with whisky/bourbon of choice ?Seal with cap, shake, place in fridge ?Wait 6 days, shaking a couple times here and there, strain through cheesecloth, place in airtight bottle and keep in fridge indefinitely __ Mix up a batch and make summer last forever (in your mouth at least ?)
Cold Brew White Russian
“The Dude abides.” ?? _ This is what happens when I watch The Big Lebowski and then have some free time. Get your #coffeecocktails fix with this playful variation on the classic #WhiteRussian (preferably imbibed whilst watching this classic flick.) I subbed in a homemade cold brewed coffee ice cube in place of crushed ice to add to the coffee flavors instead of diluting. _ WHITE RUSSIAN 2 oz vodka 1 oz Kahlua (or your preferred coffee liqueur) 1 oz heavy cream Cold brewed coffee king cube _ Combine crushed ice, vodka and coffee liqueur in a shaker. Shake, strain, add coffee ice cube and top with cream. Dust with cinnamon (optional) Get yourself a rug that really ties the room together. Don’t let anyone pee on it (not optional)
Vista Del Sol Cocktail
{*Edit 8/29: Excited to share this was the @thefeedfeed.cocktails Cocktail Contest winner! Thanks for all the support! ??} _ Alternate shot of an original cocktail, because #MangoArt. I might be more proud of the mango display here than this deliciously refreshing take on a moscow mule. It was my first stab at cutting up a mango which is surprisingly more complex than one might think! Made this cocktail for some family over the weekend and it was a hit. __ VISTA DEL SOL ? ? 2 oz mango + jalapeno infused vodka ? 3 oz ginger beer (I like @Bundabergdrinks) ? 1/2 oz lime juice ? Pelon Picositos candy rimmed glass __ Salt the rim of a glass with Picositos (a tangy/salty/spicy chile powder used on Mexican candy) to taste. Combine ingredients, fill with ice. Garnish with mango cubes and fresh jalapeño slice dusted with Picositos. Don't forget to eat the garnish. Salud! #cheerstotelula #feedfeed #contest
Kiwi Melon Mint Bellini
Do you even brunch, bro? Going out with a bang with a final entry in the #feedfeed & #cheerstoTelula #contest. Uber healthy brunch option (or excuse to drink at breakfast.) __ KIWI MELON MINT BELLINI ? @drinktelula Melon Mint, kiwi and honeydew puree, dash of sugar, lime juice, prosecco (use the sweeter variations) Cheers!
