Tomorrow night, 7-9pm, Quinciple and Bit By a Fox are joining forces for another cocktail event! We’ll be at the very charming Dandelion Wine in Greenpoint, Brooklyn sipping on this aromatic cocktail inspired by the winter goodies going out in Quinciple’s Valentine’s Day box next week.
Since Dandelion Wine doesn’t carry spirits, but has an excellent sherry selection, I was excited to create a cocktail using a dry sherry as a main cocktail ingredient. This fortified wine from Spain, long misunderstood and undervalued in the U.S, ranges from very sweet to bone dry and has become a favorite cocktail ingredient in the last few years behind the bars in New York and around the country. The reason? They tend to be extremely versatile, lend a different depth of flavors not found in spirits and can actually help when pairing cocktails with food. The Amontillado variety, that I’ll be using in the Rosemary, Mon Sherry cocktail, is dry (some can run sweeter) and very robust, with a nutty, almost savory quality.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this is the perfect time to get some tasty ideas for your sweetie or your sweet friends! We’ll be sampling cocktails and Quinciple treats, handing out recipe cards and discount codes. Don’t let this wintry mix dampen your spirits. Hang with us and feel the love!
