Last week we brought you some recipes to elevate your BBQ to the next level. This week, we have some suggestions for tasty libations. The Puget Sound has some fantastic bartenders, so we rounded up some drinks based on each of our favorite spirits, from some of our favorite localicious neighborhood bars.
Note: Most of these recipes we listed didn’t list measurements for each ingredient. In general, you can start with 1.5oz of the alcohol involved, and distribute the rest to taste. You’ll probably just need a dash of things like bitters, peppers and lime juice, and a little more soda or other fillers. Most of these are meant to be served in a cocktail or martini glass, which only hold 5 – 6 oz total.
The Turf Monster, Blue 51 and Sodo Shaker are featured on the Stadium Place blog.
Witness Bar, Knee High Stocking Company, Bait Shop and Tavern Law are among the Capitol Hill bars with cocktails we suggest replicating.
Your usual spirits are all given their due, but the U-District bars also have some interesting Sake recipes.
