I met up recently with Sacramento bartender Brad Peters at the Pour House in midtown, to photograph him and a few of his festive cocktails for the December issue of Sacramento Magazine. Brad was great to work with and he mixed up some really cool drinks. With names like Barrel-Aged Revolver, Whiskey Fig, and North Sea Sling, they are definitely cocktails you drink while wearing your big girl/boy pants!!!
The festive North Sea Sling caught my eye with its exotic list of ingredients, refreshing garnishes of lemon, and freshly grated nutmeg. When I first saw it, the cocktail reminded me of a tall, refreshing glass of fresh squeezed lemonade… but for grown-ups, and one you sip fireside rather than on the front porch. Or perhaps that to.
recipe: north sea sling by sacramento bartender Brad Peters
1.5 oz Krogstad Aquavit
.5 oz Pimms No. 1
.5 oz simple syrup
.5 oz ginger syrup
