Matt’s here with a new spin on an old summer favorite: a green tea mint julep. He first encountered this recipe from Twinings Tea during Disney’s Flower & Garden Festival and couldn’t wait to make one of his own at the Cocktail Moment bar. It features bourbon, green tea, blackberry puree, lime juice, as well as raspberry and mint syrups.
Matt makes a requested cocktail: the Nancy Drew (or “for men it’s called the Hardy Boy”). It was mentioned in an early episode of “30 Rock” and made with just white rum, diet ginger ale, and lime juice. And it’s a low-cal cocktail!
Flavored rims are an excellent, delicious, and visually interesting way to elevate your cocktails. Matt shows you a few different options including salt, sugar, and citrus.
It’s the bewitching hour and Matt has dusted off his wand to prepare a devilishly complex and magical concoction.
Featured in David Fincher’s Zodiac (2007), the Aqua Velva is a bright and tasty cocktail is easy to make and very easy to drink.
