Striptease | Cocktail Party

Striptease

Striptease cocktail with absinthe, salt, mezcal, blanc vermouth, lime juice, soursop (guanábana) nectar, and agave nectar

The Striptease is a brilliantly creative concoction by Yana Volfson, beverage director at Cosme in Manhattan.

It is incredibly fragrant and flavorful, with notes of smoke and flowers and tropical fruits and herbs. Blanc vermouth is a delicate ingredient, with its light floral notes – but it still manages to shine in the Striptease, against the big smoke of the mezcal and the tropical funk of the soursop nectar.

Ingredients

Instructions

Start by dipping the edge of a short glass in absinthe, then rolling it in the salt. Add ice to the glass – preferably one large cube or sphere. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, and strain into the glass.

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.
