BG Recipes: Breuckelen Orange Cocktail

Previous Next

A current happy hour favorite of ours, Breuckelen Orange reflects New York’s recent locavore distilling craze made possible by a legal shift permitting small distilleries to open their doors.  Always inspired by the City’s surrounding cornucopia (from farmers markets to nearby vineyards), our barkeep continues the New York tradition with a gin distilled in American oak barrels just across the East River in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

The Breuckelen Distilling Company (named after the borough’s original Dutch spelling) crafts a sophisticated botanical mix of juniper, rosemary, ginger, grapefruit and wheat grown upstate.  Mix it with blood orange, cynar and vermouth, and you’ve got the perfect soul-warming cocktail to toast the night.

Ingredients:

2 slices blood orange

1 oz Breuckelen Distilling Company Glorious Gin

1 oz cynar

1 oz carpano antica formula vermouth

Instructions:

In a cocktail shaker, muddle 1 slice blood orange.

Add ice and 3 spirits.

Cover the shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds.

Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with the second slice of blood orange.

Enjoy.
