'Drink of the Week' The Witch's Brew

ABOUT THE WITCHES’ BREW COCKTAIL






So many Halloween cocktails sacrifice balance for boo! Not the case with the Witches’ Brew, a smoky scotch sour doused with fino sherry and beet juice, which bubbles violently when served in a glass pipe with dry ice. But if special effects in your drink give you the heebie-jeebies, skip them. This Halloween cocktail is just as much of a treat without the tricks.

'Drink of the Week' THE REVENANT COCKTAIL

ABOUT THE REVENANT COCKTAIL
John Filkins, the beverage director at Officina and Masseria in Washington, D.C., wanted to do a richer version of a Boulevardier, including adding a whiff of smoke. He boils Fee Brothers. Aztec chocolate bitters and cardamom bitters, taking advantage of the fact that since they’re both glycerin-based they smoke but don’t burn the way those made from alcohol would. A snifter is filled with smoke and covered with a coaster, and the drink is then poured tableside from a carafe.
“Chinato is a great replacement for vermouth and adds an herbal complexity, [while] dry curaçao helps to lift it,” says Filkins. “The smoke adds a wow factor when it goes to the table, and chocolate and cardamom bring aromatic complexity and warm baking spices.”
This recipe originally appeared as part of “4 Smart Ways to Smoke Your Bourbon Cocktails.”
