101 Best New Cocktails, 2012: Cardamom and Orange Rye Flip by Adrian Orr, Boudoir, Glasgow, Scotland
Cardamom and Orange Rye Flip
Adapted from a recipe by Adrian Orr, Boudoir, Glasgow, Scotland.
10 cardamom pods
1 orange half
40 ml (1.33 oz) Michter’s Real rye whiskey
15 ml (.5 oz) Grand Marnier
20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lemon juice
15 ml (.5 oz) simple syrup
Muddle the cardamom and orange in a mixing glass. Add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake and double-strain into a chilled champagne coupette.
gaz sez: If you’ve tasted Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6, you’ll know that I’m very fond of marrying oranges with cardamom, so this drink is a natural fit for this year’s 101 Best New Cocktails. Although Adrian doesn’t call for it, I recommend that you dry shake this to emulsify the egg thoroughly before adding ice to your mixing glass. Everything else about this potion comes together intuitively, and the ingredients indicate a good sense of taste on the part of Adrian Orr. Nicely put together, Adrian.
