Filibuster

Filibuster cocktail with rye whiskey, lemon juice, maple syrup, egg white, and Angostura bitters

Rye and maple are a classic combo that bring to mind cozy sweaters and knit blankets, and the Filibuster from San Francisco bartender Erik Adkins is one of our favorite examples of their synchronicity.

You might be tempted to think that Grade A maple syrup is better than Grade B, but maple syrup grading is based on color and clarity. For mixing drinks, we actually prefer Grade B for its stronger flavor and greater viscosity.

Adkins’ recipe calls for a garnish of Angostura bitters on top of the egg foam, made into a pretty pattern by way of a toothpick dragged through the drops of bitters. We also like it with maple or black walnut bitters; they’re not as pretty, but the scent marries perfectly with the maple and the spice of the rye.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry-shake all ingredients (except the bitters) first without ice, and then again with ice added. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a few drops of bitters on top of the egg foam.

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.
