101 Best New Cocktails: Pine-y the Elder by Andrew Aoun, TAPS Fish House & Brewery, Brea, CA, USA
Pine-y the Elder
Andrew Aoun, TAPS Fish House & Brewery, Brea, CA, USA
“A riff on the Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder IPA. Citrusy, refreshing, and crisp.” Andrew Aoun
30 ml (1 oz) Amaro Braulio
22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice
22.5 ml (.75 oz) rich simple syrup (2:1)
1 lemon twist, as garnish
1 miniature pinecone, as garnish
Shake over ice and strain into a chilled collins glass. Add ice and top with a splash of soda and IPA. Stir briefly to incorporate. Form the lemon twist into a rose and add the garnishes.
gaz sez: I had to try this just so I could try Braulio amaro (which is pretty gorgeous), and of course it also gave me a chance to drink more Sipsmith gin, an opportunity that I’d never pass up. It’s a tough life I have. This whole thing comes together really well—it’s refreshing, tart, and it packs a nice wallop.
