B9 | Cocktail Party

B9

B9 cocktail with sparkling wine and peach liqueur

This drink was served at the now-defunct Butterfield 9 restaurant in Washington, D.C. It was rescued and adapted into the version you see here in The Joy of Mixology by Gary Regan, our favorite mixologist in the universe.

Regan uses Champagne, but you can use Prosecco or any other sparkling wine you like. Similarly, while he calls for orange vodka, other citrus vodkas can be substituted.

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir the vodka and liqueur with ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or cocktail flute. Top with the Champagne (or other sparkling wine).

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
