Dear readers, I’ld like to introduce you to THE BULLEIT MAN COCKTAIL
For this drink I’m gonna be using a Super Premium Bourbon as a base and what is different from other Bourbons is that Bulleit has a High Rye Content that makes it a spicy with a very distinctive character.
My insipiration for THE BULLEIT MAN came from Mr. TOM BULLEIT that in ’87 left a successful carrer as a lawyer and risked everything to fulfill his big dream:
Bringing back to life his great-great grandfather’s bourbon recipe from 1830 and starting the Bulleit Distilling Company.
This Bourbon is very silky and delicate at the first sip, has a nice vanilla and pralines aroma but with a rich and long finish to it.
I wanted to enhance the spiciness of this whiskey even more, by adding a little bit of cinnamon syrup, muddle the ginger, then balance it out with some fresh lemon juice, and add the egg white to give the drink a nice frothy head that will feel silky on your lips when you drink it.
Now give it a nice smiley shake!!
Always remember to Listen to the Ice, that is the alarm bell that will tell you when a great cocktail is ready!
Since I’m in Italy I decided to use some nice Italian Red Wine and float it on the top.
Then for an extra level of flavour, I’ll grind a Tonka bean on top that will give a nice vanilla aroma on your nose while you drink it.
All you have to do now is smile, relax…and drink
ENJOY THE BULLEIT MAN!!
