Dad-Inspired Recipes for Father’s Day
Becca Pesce, New York, NY

“This drink was inspired by the idea of using the flavors of a Manhattan and an Old Fashioned, and using them both in one hybrid drink.
It connects me to my Dad because the Old Fashioned is his favorite way to drink Angel’s Envy. He always asks me to “finish” his
drink with an extra cherry or two.”

“My Father’s Day cocktail was inspired by three generations of my family- me, my father, and my grandfather. When my grandfather served
in World War 2, he and his fellow soldiers were part of the liberation of southern France. During their march through the region, American
soldiers were often met by overjoyed Frenchmen who would pass them glasses of water for their long march. Sometimes, though, these
celebratory souls would hand over glasses of calvados apple brandy instead, and soldiers would knock back an entire glass “not knowing”
what they had been given. My cocktail is rinsed with the essence of this apple spirit to impart just a hint of my grandfather’s lasting
influence. The Angel’s Envy is, of course, a product of father-son collaboration, but so is the green apple shrub I use in this cocktail.

My childhood home had an apple tree out front that I could climb as a kid, so I wanted to mingle the roots of my childhood with the city I
chose as an adult. By combining the apple and the Louisiana sugarcane in my shrub, I intended to link the deep roots my father established
for me back home to the city of New Orleans, where I reside today with great love.”

 

Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree

Don’t-sit-under-the-apple-t

Ingredients:
2oz Angel’s Envy
1oz Tattersall Pommeau
1oz Green Apple Shrub
(2 cups chopped green apples combined with one
cup unrefined Louisiana sugar, left sealed in the refrigerator for

cider vinegar)
2 dashes Fee Bros Old Fashioned Bitters
Calvados Rinsed Glass
Long Lemon Peel garnish

Add fresh ice to calvados-lined glass and strain cocktail over fresh ice.

About the brand:
–Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award-winning spirit. We guide each batch’s conditioning, blending our handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time.

–It’s typically aged for up to 6 years. While we lose about 5% of the spirit each year to evaporation, or “the Angel’s Share,” what’s left behind after we’re done is truly worthy of envy.

–Once it’s deemed ready, we finish our bourbon in ruby port wine casks, which adds subtly distinct flavor nuances that enhance the whiskey without challenging it. Our port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste.

–We use 60-gallon ruby port barrels made from French oak and imported directly from Portugal. This creates a whiskey of unprecedented smoothness, sweetness and balance.

Appearance
Gold color laced with reddish amber hues, nearly copper in tone

Nose
You’ll detect notes of subtle vanilla, raisins, maple syrup and toasted nuts

PALATE
Vanilla, ripe fruit, maple syrup, toast and bitter chocolate

FINISH

Clean and lingering sweetness with a hint of Madeira that slowly fades

 

Disclosure:

I got a small sample of Angel’s Envy Kentucky Bourbon finished in Port Wine Barrels. This bourbon is super smooth, clean with  lovely, lingering flavors as you sip. I haven’t tried it in a cocktail yet but the initial taste from the bottle was a straight sip with no ice.  I will be doing a review another time!
