101 Best New Cocktails: Red Riding Hooch by Joseph Boley, Red House, Paris
Adapted from a recipe by Joseph Boley, Red House, Paris
“Our Autumn Negroni variation,” Joseph Boley
30 ml (1 oz) Beefeater gin
20 ml (.7 oz) apple-spice infused Dubonnet*
10 ml (.33 oz) Campari
10 ml (.33 oz) Averna
1 orange slice or twist, as garnish.
Build in a double old-fashioned glass, stir briefly, and add the garnish.
Methodology: build and garnish like a negroni.
*Apple-Spice Infused Dubonnet
Add the peels from 3 apples, the zest of half a lemon, 2 cinnamon sticks, a teaspoon of allspice, and a teaspoon of coriander seeds ( inspiration from the apple bitters recipe in Parsons’ Bitters book). Smash allspice and coriander, put all ingredients into a jar with 1 liter of dubbonet. Let this sit for 5 days and filter.
gaz sez: First off I should mention that the apple-spice infused Dubonnet is worthy of a glass all its own. Mix it with these other ingredients, though, and you have the makings of a masterpiece. I can’t tell you just how much I loved this drink. Well done, Joe.
