Bottle Rocket

As you probably know, we're taking July off from throwing our own 3st of the Month event.

Why? There's a few reasons. The first is that we already have an event that we're going to (you're welcome to join us). The second reason is that we're just kinda beat. We've been throwing these parties for almost a year. Which brings us to our third reason...we're working on one hell of a party in August to mark our 1 year anniversary! 

But just because we have good reason to take a month off doesn't mean we don't just feel a little guilty. So, we're making up for it by putting together this series of fireworks-themed cocktails so you can throw your own 3st in July - complete with a playlist and all. 

We couldn't do fireworks-themed cocktails without a bottle rocket. And like the flammable kind, this one packs a BANG! It's double-boozy thanks to the locally-made Pennington's Strawberry Rye Whiskey and a base of Anthem Cider (remember them from last December's "Bubbles" event?). Anthem is a great-tasting dry apple cider (not sweet) and perfect for this cocktail. 

We just ask that, like with real fireworks, you handle these safely. 

 

equipment:

10 oz resealable bottle
small funnel

ingredients:

2 oz Pennington's Strawberry Rye Whiskey
.5 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz cranberry juice
6 oz Anthem Apple Cider


method:

Make these in advance so you can ice them down. Using a funnel, add all ingredients to the bottle and reseal. Chill until drinking.
