If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Seven Spirits

Submitted by on October 12, 2014 – 2:24 pmNo Comment

leopold-brothers-singapore-slingMaybe it was the cocktail trend, maybe a nostalgia for moonshine, maybe a curiosity about the differences between gin, vodka and whiskey — but whatever the reason, distilled spirits are enjoying a renaissance of popularity in the United States.

Food and Wine magazine has picked seven spirits to try.

Here they are (in no particular order):
Leopold Brothers Michigan Tart Cherry Liqueur
St. George Spirits Dry Rye Gin
New York Distilling Company Rye Whiskey
Osocalis Rare Alamic Brandy
Germain-Robin Craft Method Brandy
A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Balcones Distilling Texas Single-Malt Whisky

(And, no, don’t ask your Road Trips Foodie the difference between Whiskey and whisky: she’s clueless.)

A bonus! Here’s Leopold Brothers’ recipe for a Singapore Sling (pictured, above left):
¾ oz. Leopold Bros. Michigan Tart Cherry Liqueur
2 oz. Leopold’s American Small Batch Gin
½ oz. Leopold Bros. American Orange Liqueur
½ oz. Leopold Bros. Three Pins Alpine Herbal Liqueur
2 oz. pineapple juice
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold. Strain into a tall glass over fresh ice. Garnish with pineapple, and additional citrus fruits if desired.
