Inspired by my recent cocktail class, I set out this weekend on a shopping excursion to pick up some components to improve my home bar. Nothing major, just a few essentials -- bitters, a bar spoon, some more glasses, and a key bottle or two. Everything got a good workout in honor of the Mad Men premier last night, where @cocktailspirit and @halw shook up some classic cocktails for the rest of us to enjoy. One such treat was the Park Avenue Cocktail (courtesy of John the Bastard):
The Park Avenue Cocktail
|¾||oz pineapple juice|
|¾||oz sweet vermouth|
|⅓||oz Grand Marnier (or orange curaçao)|
Shake and strain.
The one more piece of equipment I need to improve my home bar (and the rest of the home) is an air conditioner that cools more than my bedroom.
