Fireside 75

Fireside 75 cocktail with gin, brandy, lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, and sparkling white wine

Winter in the northern hemisphere is a season for celebrations, and there are few drinks we lean on more heavily in this time than the Fireside 75 from Brad Goocher at Cane & Table in New Orleans.

The Fireside 75 splits the spirit base between classic gin and warming brandy, and spices it all up by substituting cinnamon syrup for the original simple. Since it’s a fairly sweet base, we try to choose a very dry sparkling wine to top it with, but it’s always good with whatever we’ve had on hand.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Top with the sparkling white wine and garnish with a lemon twist.

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.
