Friday Frock and Fizz

October conjures the color orange. If you are like me, your mind wanders to Halloween. The thought takes you to a place of costume reminiscence. Which leads you down a road of childhood memories. While the nostalgic train stop is different for all of us, my mind goes south. Quite literally. For the great American South is where I spent countless summers growing up. So, when I came across a back issue of Charleston Magazine, I gave a fizz from their Top Cocktail Contest list a good old cacalaca try. The Gentleman Jack winner by Evan Powell at Fish is a twisty mix for the season.

Make it at home with:

1 ½ oz. Gentleman Jack

1/2 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

1/2 oz. elderflower nectar (d’Arbo preferred)

2 lemon wedges

Brandy-soaked French cherries (Les Parisiennes preferred)

Orange twist

-Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker over ice.

-Squeeze in juice from lemons, shake vigorously, and strain into a rocks glass with ice.

-Garnish with cherries and an orange twist.

-For a long drink, strain into a highball over ice and add a splash of soda.

What better way to enjoy your orange twist of a fizz than to pair it with a fruitful frock. My preferred attire includes three red-plus-yellow-make-orange robes. Enjoy!

  1. When I think of Halloween I think of our costumes at PC. Not sure those are memories I want to relive 😉 (Costume wise, not the super fun times when had, those I will remember always, well slighty remember)
