The Cerberus

We made the Cerberus cocktail for UnaMae's Boutique party a couple of weeks ago and we're finally sharing the full recipe.

The Cerberus
(The mythical three-headed dog of the Underworld - read the history here)
1oz Chipotle-infused vodka
3oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Orange Liqueur

Strain over ice into a Collins glass filled with ice or a coupe glass with no ice. Garnish with a salted rim.

Notes: We used Smirinoff vodka, which is a good quality choice for the price. Take 2-3 de-stemmed chipotle peppers and add to the vodka for 2-3 days. Test everyday to make sure it doesn't get too spicy. Two days was fine for us. Chipotles are smoked, dried jalapenos so they impart a wonderful smoky flavor, but it's not for everyone. We received a lot of comments that guests tasted "bacon" or "meat" flavor.

This vodka also makes an awesome Bloody Mary.

For the grapefruit, use fresh squeezed juice whenever possible as the difference is palpable. The holiday season is a great time because citrus is in season and cheap.

Orange liqueur (we used Patron Citronge) was added to up the sweetness and balance the spiciness for an umami experience.

We got the chipotle peppers and Himalayan sea salt at the Spice House. Love that place.

Throughout this week, we'll be posting the recipe for four other drinks we've created from our recent events. Cheers!
