Election Cocktails

Cocktails from last night’s party, in case you want to make them yourself at home…

Park Slope:1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey, 3/4 oz Punt e Mes, 3/4 oz Apricot Brandy. Stir with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Cherry.
Northern Spy:1 1/2 oz Apple Brandy, 1 oz Apple Juice, 1/2 oz Lemon Juice, 1/4 oz Apricot Brandy. Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Last Word:3/4 oz Dry Gin, 3/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur, 3/4 oz Green Chartreuse, 3/4 oz Lime Juice. Shake with ice and strain into cocktail glass.
Final Ward:3/4 oz Rye Whiskey, 3/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur, 3/4 oz Green Chartreuse, 3/4 oz Lemon Juice. Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Gin-Gin Mule:3/4 oz Lime Juice, 1 oz Simple Syrup, 6 Sprigs Mint, 1 1/2 oz Dry Gin. Lightly Muddle Mint in Syrup and Lime Juice. Add Gin and ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Fill with ginger beer.

The only change I made from the canonical recipes for these cocktails, was to go a bit light on the Simple in the Gin-Gin Mule. I was using Rich Simple in it, so 1 oz seemed a bit much. Oh and don’t tell Audrey, but aside from being Rich Simple, it was a Rosemary Flower Simple Syrup that I used in the Gin Gin Mule. So maybe it should be a “Gin Pine Mule” or something?
