I spent last weekend at Substitutet where me and my fellow cocktail enthusiast Adam Peleg suggested we encounter in a drink-making battle – and of course I couldn’t say no to that! I acknowledge myself a winner of the battle, but for not working as a bartender I must say Adam was a worthy opponent indeed! We made so many drinks and I didn’t care to take photos of all of them, but I want to give you a little hint of the ambience of last weekend and post the grand finale recipe for you; the Red Snapper.
Red Snapper is a Bloody Mary with gin! I actually prefer gin to vodka in this style of drink since it’s flavour suits really well with the rest of the ingredients. The Red Snapper was a perfect end to the cocktail voyage we set out on. Adam made it and it was delicious! However I want to bid you my recipe of it, since I believe it’s slightly better (sorry Adam). However, he is a dedicated and talented mixer and he’s promised to soon write a piece on one of his favourite cocktails: The Sazerac. for me to post here on my website. I’m very intrigued to have my first guest post presented on TINASHINE.COM, and that it will be written by Adam.
