So, yesterday’s drink wasn’t quite my cup of tea, but I’m going to stick with my “split personality” theme and try another cocktail where the ingredients don’t immediately make sense together. I also love that the Triple Crown (again, via Brooklyn Bartender) uses pamplemousse (grapefruit) liqueur; the color on this product is just so lovely, but it’s delicate and easily overpowered. (For those in the Pacific Northwest, Little Bird Bistro has a fantastic cocktail called La Vie en Rose. I picked up the pamplemousse liqueur in an attempt to duplicate that drink, thought I have, sadly, been unsuccessful so far.) I really like this drink! The first taste is sweet wth a touch of sour, but I still get an actual bourbon flavor and the amaro keeps everything linked together. This one definitely hits the Winner’s Circle (sorry for the painfully obvious joke, but I can’t help myself).
