My name is Nick Dean and this is my blog. The primary focus of Frontier Mixology is simply to post things that interest me, and more specifically — stuff relating to spirits, wine and beer. Tied in with that is my interest in highlighting spirits, bars and mixology in Western New York, which gives this blog sort of a dual focus.
This cocktail doesn’t even need a name. It has its own playlist:
Prince. The Eels. The Presidents of the United States of America.
Peaches for you. Peaches for me.
And until now it’s only been available in my brain and at my kitchen table, but I’m nothing if not generous — so here’s the recipe.
The Peach Tease
As mentioned previously, Bag and String Wine Merchants gifted me a bottle of their new exclusive barrel release from Tommyrotter Distillery in Buffalo.
This is my first go at making a fun cocktail with it.
About This Drink
A perfect late summer sipper, as fresh peaches are still readily available and the depth and spice of the barrel aged gin hint at the approaching change of seasons.
It’s The Peach Tease (or Teasy P. if you’re hip and into the whole brevity thing).
1.5 oz B&S Tommyrotter Barrel-Aged
.75 oz Peach Tea Simple Syrup
.75 oz Contratto Apertif orange liqueur
Add all the ingredients except the garnish into a mixing glass and stir until well chilled and diluted (as the gin is 122 proof). Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a fresh slice of peach.
