The Apricot Blossom
Oh hey gang, where you looking for some cocktail inspiration? Lucky for you, I’ve got fodder for your fire. You can find it over at Saveur.com and here’s a little tease:
I’m a whiskey drinker who, with the exception of an Old Fashioned, likes her cocktails simple and straightforward. Any drink with a long ingredient list evokes bad memories of loud clubs; in contrast, I’m of the mind that it takes a certain amount of bartending finesse to make a perfectly balanced cocktail using only a few ingredients, and I’m inclined to reward that. So I’m still a little mystified as to how one of my new favorite drinks is a rum cocktail comprised of a whopping six ingredients.
