Moonriver Bar #42 - Zip, Zap, Zoom
Today I come to thee with three potions for your tasting pleasure; two from the books of old, and one from my strange brain. Let's get into it!
The Zipper is a curious recipe that I took a double take on, mainly for its use of milk and tequila. Yeah, I know.
1 oz Tequila
1 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Milk, Almond Milk, or Cream (I highly recommend the cream)
+ Orange Milk
+ Almond milk is a bit too thin, but still smooth over ice
+ Definitely weird...but pleasantly surprising
+ I highly recommend the cream version...
+ ...Or if you're a savage like me, use IRISH CREAM instead
***I'm actually very curious what my readers think of this one. Good luck!
1.5 oz Brandy
1/2 oz Cream
Shake and serve.
Still blanketing cream as a base layer, the Zoom seeks to pair Brandy and straight honey. New to Brandy, the pairing is quite delicious, which inspires me for the next exploration.
The Zap is a spin on the Zoom. The Zipper makes an appearance, but if you really want to zap your zoom with a zipper, you'll find yourself on the floor all zapped out.
1/2 oz Brandy
1/4 oz Honey Liqueur
1 oz Irish Cream
1/4 oz Dry Curacao
+ Very creamy
+ Always subtle, the honey notes continue to ebb and flow through the experience long after you swallow.
+ The Curacao is a great compliment to the Brandy. Slight bitter orange spun into the fruity base of the Brandy.
+ Irish Cream provides that lovely, silky mouth feel, with a bite at back...
+ ...sweetened with more honey!
+ Just lovely.
So whatever zap got your zipper stuck before your Zoom...make sure your camera's off. Have some decency, mortals!
