Brian's New Fresh Summer Cocktails  

Pimm's Cup
This version of the classic British cocktail was created by Eben Freeman, bartender at Tailor restaurant in New York City.

Ingredients

  • About 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) Pimm's No. 1
  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) ginger beer or ginger ale
  • 1 cucumber slice
  • 1 sprig fresh mint (5 to 6 leaves)

Preparation

Fill highball glass with ice. Add Pimm's, then top with ginger beer, garnish with cucumber slice and mint sprig, and serve.

French 75
This recipe is from Eben Freeman, bartender of Tailor Restaurant in New York City. The drink tastes best when served very cold, so Freeman recommends making sure the glass and the sparkling wine are well chilled.

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) gin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (3/4 ounce) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) simple syrup
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) dry sparkling wine, such as brut Champagne, chilled

Preparation

Using zester or paring knife, slice peel from lemon in long, thin spiral. Reserve lemon for another use and set peel aside.

Michelada
This adaptation of a classic Mexican beer-based cocktail was created by Eben Freeman, bartender of Tailor Restaurant in New York City. For authenticity, Freeman suggests using Pico Piquin pepper sauce, Valentina salsa picante, and Modelo Especial lager. However, he notes that each region in Mexico employs different products, so other brands can be substituted.

 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 teaspoon piquin pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salsa picante
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (12-ounce) can Mexican lager, chilled
  • Garnish: lime wedge

Preparation

In tall beer glass, stir together pepper sauce, salsa, lime juice, salt, and lager. Garnish with lime and serve immediately.
