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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
