Bullshot

A good bartender is, as they say, “a pharmacist with limited inventory.” In fact, many ingredients used in cocktail began their life as pseudo-medicinal tinctures, and some of them (like bitters in club soda for a tummyache) do seem to have stood the test of time.

The Bullshot is an excellent example of the restorative potential of a cocktail. Made with good stock (homemade stock or consommé are lovely), plenty of hot sauce, and served warm, it makes a potent spirit-reviver in the coldest days of winter or the longest days of a nasty flu.

Ingredients

Instructions

If you’re serving it cold, shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled tall glass. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a celery stalk.

If you’d rather have it warm, begin by heating up the beef stock. Meanwhile, vigorously stir the remaining ingredients and add to a large mug. Stir in the hot beef stock. Skip the garnish for the hot version – it just gets in the way of slow sipping.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
