Zombie Root Carousel
Forget all the Shandy’s/Dark N Stormy’s. This is a tried and true delicious group of spirits. Be careful of it’s sweet nectar, you’ll be loving it on the floor if not careful! That’s the beauty of a great drink though. Here’s to the great weather and this recipe from Warren Bobrow featuring Tuthilltown Manhattan Rye Whiskey and Art In The Age Root.
In a cocktail shaker, mash several maraschino cherries to a pulp
2 oz. of Tuthilltown Manhattan Rye Whiskey
1 oz. Root USDA Certified Organic Liquor
Finish with a shake or two of Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters and some freshly scraped ginger root.
Add ice, top with ginger ale. Shake, strain and pour over fresh ice in a tall glass.
A Truly Interesting and Contemplative Quaff
I was in Cask the other day and noticed a bottle of something called Root based on a root beer recipe. I was tempted, but then dismissed it as probably being something nasty and artificial. I obviously forgot that I was in Cask and not BevMo because if Cask had it, it was probably worth checking out. When I got home I looked it up and was immediately intrigued enough to go back and buy a bottle. It turns out that Root is an organic liqueur based on an alcoholic pre-prohibition “root tea” recipe, which eventually spawned the nonalcoholic root beer as we know it today (yeah, I know, go figure). I could waste time writing about it or, I could go mix myself up a Root cocktail and you could watch this video instead.
