Welcome to Pattee Tech Mixology collection. We started getting items into our Home Accessories and Cool Kitchen Gadgets rooms that were specifically for mixologists. So, after a while, we decided to create a separate collection just for those items and more. Pour your favorite beverage and have a look around. No minimums here!
This Month's Cocktail
Far from the Tree
Brooklyn bartender Ivy Mix, the award-winning co-owner of Leyenda in Brooklyn, shared this cardamom-scented holiday punch. Layers of apple flavor, from cold-pressed juice, brandy, hard cider, and fresh apple slices, give the not-too-boozy punch an autumnal feel.
3 cardamom pods
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups French Sauvignon Blanc or similar dry white wine
1 cup cold-pressed apple juice or apple cider
3/4 cup white verjus
1/2 cup amontillado sherry
1/2 cup Calvados or other apple brandy
1/2 cup simple syrup
1 cup dry Spanish-style hard cider (such as Trabanco)
1 crisp, red-skinned apple, thinly cut crosswise into 12 rounds
Muddle cardamom pods and salt in bottom of a punch bowl. Stir in wine, apple juice, verjus, sherry, Calvados, and simple syrup. Add a 1-pound ice block or ice ring; stir gently until punch is chilled, about 30 seconds. Top with hard cider, and garnish with apple slices.
