"Mistology" Recipes

Posted By on Thu, Dec 10, 2009 at 10:43 AM

Tim Laird likens vodka to a boneless chicken breast — perfectly presentable but not particularly flavorful. He uses Canadian Mist whiskey in traditionally clear-liquor drinks like Manhattans and Cosmopolitans.

Ew, right?

Not so, says Laird. He, along with Steve Hughes, is bringing "Mistology: The Science of the Cocktail", to the Brooks Museum of Art tonight. He'll be mixing up a few cocktails to prove his point.

Get more details on the presentation here.

And below are a few recipes that the "Mistology" guys provided so that you can play along at home.

3 oz. Canadian Mist
1 oz. vermouth
Pour Canadian Mist and vermouth over ice in cocktail shaker. Shake and pour through strainer into long-stemmed cocktail glass. Garnish with orange wedge and cherry.

2 oz Canadian Mist
3 oz Cranberry juice
1 oz triple sec
Splash of lime juice
Lime slice
Combine ingredients with ice in a shaker. Shake well and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with lime.

Mistical Eggnog
12 oz Canadian Mist
2 tbsp chocolate syrup
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 quart eggnog
Cinnamon stick or cherry for garnish
Mix Canadian Mist and chocolate syrup with eggnog. Top with whipping cream and garnish with cinnamon stick or cherry and sprinkle with nutmeg. To serve hot, heat Canadian Mist and eggnog mixture over low heat, top with whipped cream and serve.
