An homage to @marco_corallo_bartender Dirty Martini. Man, it’s good to be back on the ‘Gram after 3 months off. What have we missed? #responsibly
.
{Rocktane - makes 2}
.
120mls or 4oz rosemary butter fat-washed @AlaskanRockVodka
20mls or 2/3oz @maidenii dry vermouth
several drops olive oil in each glass
sprig of rosemary to stir
.
Shake/Strain/Up
.
To fat-wash your Rock just melt 30 grams or 1oz of good quality salted butter (we love @lurpakau) with a sprig of rosemary. Add the scented melty buttery goodness to room temperature Rock. Use a jar if possible and let it sit for an hour or so, shaking occasionally. Then freeze overnight. The fat will separate introducing a slippery gentle butter hit to the spirit. Rock is already supersmooth but something about fat-washing makes it irresistible.
.
Glassware is a 🇮🇹 @dieselliving for @selettiworld Machine collection drinking glass celebrating nuts, bolts and screws, featured at the 2016 @isaloniofficial Salone del Mobile, Milano in 2016. For all the petrolheads and gearheads out there. We’re looking at you @dorian_alfa and @sol_invictus_moto and @andrewcsimpson 😉

45mls or 1and1/2oz @AlaskanRockVodka

The secret to this 🥃 is to go overboard with the foam.  Shake this up good. And be sure to strain the juice really well so it’s as clear as possible. If you love tart, strong, slippery drinks then this one’s for you.

We are on the hunt for some vintage Waterford, Ireland crystal to add to our glassware collection. In the meantime we can celebrate the 🍀Emerald Isle and St Pat’s Day with this  crystal-clear drink. Poteen was our jumping off point. It’s got a surprisingly sweet flavour profile which enhahnces the sweetness of Rock and combines nicely with the cherry liqueur and bitters. A surprisingly refreshing 🥃.
.
Here’s to the great crystal, outstanding thoroughbred racehorses and darned fine storytellers of Ireland. And to Shane MacGowan’s teeth. Te-tiddly-tiddly. Or de-doidly-doidly, if you prefer 😉.

We’ve been riffing on the classic Atomic 🍸and we think we’ve found a winner. #responsibly
.
{The Auburn Atomic}
.
45mls or 1 and 1/2oz @AlaskanRockVodka

couple dashes Fee Brothers peach bitters
top up with Moet Rose champagne
.
Stir/Strain/Up

For the original Atomic 🍸 we recommend the @diffordsguide recipe: vodka + brandy + sherry + brut champagne. The original is a fantastic drink, very grown up. Maximum 2. For our riff we’ve swapped out the brandy for Spain’s 🇪🇸 lovely vanilla liqueur @Licor43 and the drier bubbles for a sweeter rosé champagne. Our riff is a little on the sweeter side but its just as complex as the original. Gorgeous flavours and a truly beautiful, shiny, rusty shade of auburn. This 🥃 is eye candy and palate delight at once. Ought to be a classic. Ask for an Auburn Atomic at your local cocktail bar 😉. Cheers all!

2 pinches coconut sugar

Shake very well/Strain/Rocks.
.
Thankyou @fixesouthernhouse for inspiring this drink. Your ‘Winter Punch’ was our jumping off point. The first pinch of coconut sugar goes into the mix for shaking. The second is sprinkled over top of clear ice cubes. Garnish with a cinnamon quill, snuggle into a comfy reading chair and enjoy! This is a creamy, sweet, nutty 🥃 with a dry edge from the bitters. Very grown up but deeply satisfying.
.
'12 Rules for Life' gets 3 thumbs up from Rock HQ. It’s good, practical grounded advice on how to navigate an anxious modern age in a way that will leave you feeling ok about yourself and maybe even leave the world a little better than you found it. Popular for a reason - Prof Peterson’s explanation of psychology and his advice is really resonating with a lot of folks. And we say cheers 🥂 to that!

Who says🍸 can never be healthy or guilt free? Not us. Our vodka is double distilled for the smoothest and clearest warmth. In moderation it is a fine spirit to enjoy.

*For the infusion we put the matcha into a ziplock bag with the vodka and placed that in a warm water bath at about 40 degrees C for a few minutes before removing the mix and leaving to cool. Take care to strain carefully because matcha powder is so finely milled.

Barspoon of @sinkonah tonic syrup
couple drops @Mister_Bitters fig and agave bitters

We recently got our hands on some @sinkonah tonic syrup and it is fantastic stuff. Pure tonic-y goodness. It’s almost medicinal but in a really, really good way. Add it to Rock with bitters and you have a perfect nip or shot to start your 💋date night right🔥.

{The Peach n Pod - for #shrubsaturday}
.
45mls or 1 and 1/2oz @AlaskanRockVodka
20mls or 2/3oz @Licor43global vanilla liqueur
10mls or 1/3oz orange and mint shrub*
several drops Fee Brothers peach bitters
60mls soda water
.
Stir/Strain/Ice
.
It’s still plenty hot in Sydney so this 🥃 is hydrating as well as delicious. Do try to get the peach bitters because it’s the peach that melds so well with the shrub and the Licor43 and Rock to make this so refreshing. Cheers all!
.
*For the shrub we used the cold-press method. Ingredients: half an orange (with pith and skin removed) together with a handful of torn mint leaves, 30mls white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of light muscovado sugar. Refrigerate for an hour or so then press through paper towel.
.
Glassware is a super rare Culver glass 🇺🇸 blue paisley low ball. Santa was very, very good to us in ’17 😉 🎅 😛 and this is one of our new faves.
