A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

As The Seasons Grey

1 oz Bourbon, Old Grand Dad 100
1⁄4 oz Coffee liqueur, St. George (NOLA)
1⁄4 oz Maple syrup (Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste)
1 Orange peel (as garnish)
Instructions

Stir, strain into old fashioned glass with a large cube or sphere. Garnish with an orange swath. If you're feeling ambitious, you can also smoke the drink with maplewood.

Notes

The St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur is drier than most large producer coffee liqueurs, so adjust ratios or add another dash of Angostura bitters if using something sweeter.

I prefer using "Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste" syrup (formerly Grade B) in cocktails due to its stronger, more intense maple flavor.

From the Knowledge Vault

Welcome to the new Kindred Cocktails

We've completely redesigned and rewritten Kindred Cocktails. Cosmetically, we've updated it to modern web standards. You'll find it much easier and more complete on mobile devices. Most every feature has been retained and a few new ones added. Some features have moved to new, more logical places. And inside almost 95% of the code has been updated or rewritten. Explore. Let us know if you find anything that doesn't work as you'd expect.

If you've contributed cocktails, you'll find that our philosophy on submissions has changed. Previously we accepted recipes that weren't in conformance with our Style Guidelines. They were not published, but you could keep them in your cocktail book. All these private cocktails weren't shared, and this ran contrary to our concept of kindred -- a community of like-minded cocktail lovers. So now we accept only three unpublished cocktails at a time. Unpublished cocktails should be improved to meet our style guidelines and re-submitted for publication. Or merged into another existing cocktail. Or even deleted if not of sufficient quality. We hope this change creates a database of high-quality recipes for everyone to enjoy.

To help you keep track of your personal variation on a cocktail's ingredients, each cocktail book entry can have custom ingredients. Use the Paste Recipe button, then customize the ingredients to your liking. When you view the cocktail's page, you can see either your custom ingredients or the official ingredients.

We hope you'll enjoy the new version. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook if you'd like.

  • Re Crux, 7 hours ago Asphodel commented:

    I made this today, using Pierre Ferrand 1840 cognac, Dubbonet, and Pierre Ferrand dry Curacao. I poured a little heavy with the cognac, but didn't need to. The end result was on the dry side, very bright, with underlaying complexity from the aromatics in the Dubbonet. Delicious. I will definitely make again! ****

    Allan when I tagged him on Instagram attributed this to Ron Dollete. The reference link is dead, so I couldn't see what the article stated.

    Curated this - Imbibe just put the recipe up and the version we had was a recollection of it - it now conforms with the cited link. Thanks, Zachary

  • Re Frenchman Street, 2 days 2 hours ago Zachary Pearson commented:

    Ok, quick question - so you're chilling an OF, rinsing it, lightly muddling mint and sugar (a pinch, not a dash perhaps) in the bottom. Then you're stirring everything else and straining it over the mint/sugar? I'd imagine this will lead to undissolved sugar in the bottom of the glass. If so, can I clarify the instructions to reflect this? Thanks, Zachary

    Made w/ Meehan Cosmo spec ratios so I can use 100% cranberry juice (60 mL Campari; 22.5 mL orange liqueur (killed the bottle of shrub + finished off with cointreau); 22.5 mL lime; 15 mL cranberry; 7.5 mL simple; pinch salt).
