Oranj-a-Bloom | Cocktail Party

Oranj-a-Bloom

The delightful Oranj-a-Bloom was invented by Rachel Sergi while she was beverage manager at Againn, a now-closed restaurant in Washington, DC.

Sergi’s recipe calls for Allagash, a Belgian-style white beer. Any white beer will be lovely, but we love the suggestion we saw in The Washington Post to use Hitachino Nest, a Japanese witbier-style ale.

The original recipe used Rhum J.M Eleve Sous Bois Gold, a somewhat hard-to-find aged rhum agricole, but it’s pretty tasty with just about any decent aged rum.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the citrus, mint, syrup and bitters in a shaker. Add the rum and orange liqueur and shake. Double-strain into a tall ice-filled glass, and top with beer. Garnish with an orange slice and a mint sprig.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
