Outerworld - Arcturus remix for the bois. 90% there in my opinion. Have a feeling its missing some kind of cream/binder, but after tinkering with a few creams, I find this even more delicious without it. Enjoy! Calling this a remix as its only about 90% there.

My take on a "Jack Rose" cocktail, with applejack, grenadine, and lime. Warm, sweet, and holiday-esque.

Originally mixed for a holiday cocktail episode of DIY Downunder, I've been meaning to do something inspired by applejack for a while and this was a pretty good excuse. Applejack is a traditional-ish american spirit that was originally made by repeatedly freezing the water out of cider until it proofed, so like an ice wine but with apples. It's usually just done as a distilled apple brandy now, but it's still delicious stuff that tends to be less subtle and a bit more obnoxious than something like Calvados. I do think it fits in the colder weather really well, and it's something that feels seasonal without tasting like pumpkin spice.

Shoutout to MlNikon for putting the bug in my ear about FA Liquid Amber being the best brandy flavor out, because I completely ran with it. I think a lot of failed attempts at making an applejack were down to putting the apple first. I just flipped it, and throw an ungodly amount of liquid amber in to mix to see what it would do. I liked it. 3% is indeed a whole lot of liquid amber, but it's used as an actual flavor and probably the crux of the recipe instead of the usual sub 1% additive range. It has a decent amount of texture and a really nice warmth to it to.

The applejack is filled out with some of the amazing funk and depth of FLV Apple Cider at 1%. The good applejack, the bottled in boud stuff from Laird's, is aged in oak. So that's the last flavoring component here. Some TPA Red Oak at 1% gives a solid bourbon char. I feel like it's less dry and astringent than FA Oakwood so that's probably a good fit.

The rest of the cocktail is pretty easy. TPA Pomegranate Deluxe is fuller, sweet, and doesn't have any weird off notes. Seems like grenadine to me. I just wanted a light touch of grenadine here, so 2% seemed about appropriate. And the lime juice. Oh the lime juice. I like FA Florida Key Lime for a non-candied lime juice flavor that doesn't fade out too hard. 3% got me where I wanted to go.

So there we go, a holiday cocktail that doesn't involve LB White Chocolate Peppermint. Look upon my works and tremble.

Mixed live Wednesday night on Mixing with me Mates

I'm a complete Star Wars nerd. One thing i vividly remember from my childhood was movie night, watching the original trilogy with my parents whilst drinking non-alcoholic cocktails (well, theirs weren't). This recipe is inspired by those nights...

Like Strap-on, only with flavors I like. Many variants should be possible. Several are in development.

Note: cooling is really to taste, I usually use a blend of WS-3, WS-23 (@30%) and WS-5. Since the last doesn't exist in the database...

Refreshing berries, grapeberries, fuji apple and pomegranate juice. Added some Sparkling Wine (INAWERA) to boost the texture.
