Cheers, Even If You’re Bitter
If you’re feeling a bit bitter this Valentine’s Day, Firefly Mixologist Jon Harris‘ “Wilted Bouquet” might just be the perfect cocktail for you. It’s billed as “a potent potable to consume while contemplating the ultimate demise of that motherf****r who broke your heart.”
Check out the directions — they’re “to die for.” We hope making this drink will have you feeling better soon. Cheers!
Wilted Bouquet Recipe
- 2 oz Campari
- 1 oz Smith & Cross Navy Strength Rum
- 2 dashes Rose Water
- 1 dash Lavender Bitters
- Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
- To garnish, take one brandied cherry and squeeze it between your fingers over the glass to mimic the effect of what you’d like to do to his (yes, or her) evil, conniving heart, then drop his (her) metaphorical smashed heart into the glass.
- Consume and consider how you could possibly get away with it.
You can cut the bitter edge on Valentine’s Day with Chef Todd Wiss’ Pan Seared Hudson Valley Foie Gras, made with brioche huckleberry french toast, verjus gastrique.
