Cosmic Cocktail Description

 

It's called No Apologies.

May, 2022

Crafted by Lindsay Merbaum, Author and Founder of Pick Your Potions The base of this drink is bourbon, which adds a spicy, masculine element that’s balanced by the sweet berries and amaretto, a perfect representation of creativity and intuition, as well as the balance of masculine and feminine properties. A beautifully dark red, bitter complement, pomegranate juice is included for “how we were once seeds/that resided inside,” a symbol of transformation from seed to flower to fruit.

The chocolate rim enhances the warmth in the bourbon and pairs beautifully with the berries, creating an overall effect that’s different from what you might expect, much like the mysterious Scorpio.

This Cosmic Cocktail is featured against an unapologetically bold cosmic backdrop of iridescent purple. Served in a faceted coupe glass with a dark chocolate rim and garnished with fresh raspberries and frozen pomegranate seeds, the base of the glass is wreathed in orange, yellow, and purple flowers to complement the cover of this month's Astro Mixer and special guest Sonya Renee Taylor’s life-changing book THE BODY IS NOT AN APOLOGY. 

 

 

INGREDIENTS

May Astro Mixer's Custom Cocktail, No Apologies.

1.5 oz bourbon, preferably Beer Barrel Bourbon from Michigan distillery New Holland Brewing Company

1 oz pomegranate juice

1 oz amaretto 

1 large strawberry, or 2 medium strawberries, sliced 

Garnish: fresh raspberries and dark chocolate, plus frozen pomegranate seeds (optional).

 

 INSTRUCTIONS 

May Astro Mixer's Custom Cocktail, No Apologies.

First, rim the glass with chocolate by melting two or three large squares. To melt the chocolate, microwave it in a small bowl for 45 seconds, then stir. Continue microwaving in 15 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted smooth. Dip the glass in the melted chocolate, rolling it at a slight angle until the rim is well coated. Allow excess to drip back into the bowl, then place the glass in the fridge to harden. 

Meanwhile, add a large cube or chunk of ice to a shaker, along with the sliced strawberry, bourbon, pomegranate juice, and amaretto. (If you don’t own a shaker, a lidded glass jar will do.) Agitate vigorously for about 15 seconds, or until the ice begins to break up. Remove the glass from the fridge and strain the drink into it. Add a few raspberries and pomegranate seeds, if desired, then serve.
