Sweet Midnight Cocktail

Sweet Midnight | Garlic, My Soul

Our Six Chairs At The Table dinner this past month was wonderful. We focused on lesser used meats like lamb and duck, so I wanted to create a savory and soothing cocktail that would start the night off right. This cocktail mixture offers a sweet, earthy, and bitter in a great combo and sets a nice tone for the rich meats we ate.

I wanted to use some out-of-the-box liquor this time around, so I chose to make the base white rum and brandy. Garnished with some red delicious apples ,this is subtle drink that opens up your palette for some fun and unique tastes.
