Cocktail of the Week: Bill Samuels Special
Updated: Jun 10
Bill Samuels Special
My inspiration for this drink comes from a mix of one of the classic cocktails with a little tropical touch. Whiskey sour base but with an extra tropical essence.
Even for the macaron I put the whisky as a base for the crunchy biscuit part, a vanilla note, like a Maker's Mark aroma, and a touch of Saba, to give extra sweetness and acid part.
The name is a real tribute to Bill Samuels, the man who discovered the flavor known, today, to be Maker's Mark whisky.
1 1/4 Oz Maker's Mark® Bourbon whisky
3/4 Oz Alamea Peach Brandy
1 Oz Pineapple juice
1/2 Oz Passion fruit puree
1/2 Oz Lime juice
1/4 Oz Simple syrup
Shake and double strain in a cup glass
On the side, a Macaron dessert made with Maker's Mark® Bourbon whisky Vanilla and Saba in a small pipette.
