The Stoli Doli Beach Cocktail

stoli doli beach cocktail recipe 240x300 The Stoli Doli Beach CocktailA Stoli Doli Mash Up Recipe!

By Howard & Matt Goldstein

Most Stoli Doli’s are pineapple infused vodka where the pineapple fruit sits in the vodka for weeks, and then the vodka is poured on the rocks.  It’s very good.  We’re actually indebted with gratitude to the Capital Grille for inventing such a work of genius.  However, this takes weeks to make and most of us don’t have that much time to make a cocktail.  Also, it’s very strong for the average drinker.  Although there is a strong pineapple flavor, the Stoli Doli is basically just straight vodka.  Being is that we are chilling at the beach right now in Margate City NJ, Howard (my dad), wanted to sip on something sweet and easy drinking.  We give you the Stoli Doli Beach Cocktail.  It’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s refreshing; like summertime in a glass. 

.

Ingredients:

2 parts Stoli vodka

2 parts pineapple juice

1 part Triple Sec

Pour the contents into an ice filled cocktail shaker, shake for 10 seconds and pour over ice and enjoy.  For a good time, just repeat 3-4 times for you and yours.  Margate City NJ — where the Jews rock out yo!

By Howard & Matt Goldstein

The Rain Organics Vodka is an organic vodka handcrafted by white corn and distilled seven times.  Made by the Sazerac company, one of the largest and most decorated distillers in the United States, known for their Sazerac Rye and Buffalo Trace bourbons.  We would tell you more about this vodka but there’s not much we know.  Made from white corn, it’s probably left over from the 20 bourbons they distill.  Doesn’t sound good?  You’re wrong.  The Rain Organics is a very solid vodka.

The Official Sazerac Cocktail

sazerac cocktail 253x300 The Official Sazerac CocktailSazerac Cocktail Recipe

How the Sazerac Cocktail Came to Be In 1838, Antoine Amedie Peychaud, owner of a New Orleans apothecary, treated his friends to brandy toddies of his own recipe, including his “Peychaud’s Bitters,” made from a secret family recipe. The toddies were made using a double-ended egg cup as a measuring cup or jigger, then known as a “coquetier” (pronounced “ko-k-tay”), from which the word “cocktail” was derived.

Thus, the world’s first cocktail was born! By 1850, the Sazerac Cocktail, made with Sazerac French brandy and Peychaud’s Bitters, was immensely popular, and became the first “branded” cocktail. In 1873, the recipe for the Sazerac Cocktail was altered to replace the French brandy with American Rye whiskey, and a dash of absinthe was added. In 1933, the Sazerac Cocktail was bottled and marketed by the Sazerac Company of New Orleans.

That same year, “Herbsaint,” a pastis, was made according to a French recipe; “Herbsaint” was so named for the New Orleans term for wormwood – “Herb Sainte.” In 1940, the Official Sazerac Cocktail recipe was modified to use Herbsaint as the absinthe. Finally, in 2000, the Official Sazerac Cocktail recipe was modified to use Sazerac Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey.

The Official Sazerac Cocktail

 
1 cube sugar1½ ounces (35ml) Sazerac Rye Whiskey or Buffalo Trace Bourbon¼ ounce Herbsaint3 dashes Peychaud’s BittersLemon peel
  • Pack an Old-Fashioned glass with ice
  • In a second Old-Fashioned glass place the sugar cube and add the Peychaud’s Bitters to it, then crush the sugar cube
  • Add the Sazerac Rye Whiskey or Buffalo Trace Bourbon to the second glass containing the Peychaud’s Bitters and sugar
  • Empty the ice from the first glass and coat the glass with the Herbsaint, then discard the remaining Herbsaint
  • Empty the whiskey/bitters/sugar mixture from the second glass into the first glass and garnish with lemon peel

Authentic Sangria Drink History & Recipe

sangria pic from the examiner Authentic Sangria Drink History & RecipeA Goldmine Original Sangria Recipe

By Tim Rodgers

In my mid twenties, I traveled throughout the east Mediterranean coast of Spain and spent a lot of time in the coastal towns of Valencia.  There were many things about the cuisine and wines that were amazing, but one thing that stood was being introduced to Sangria for the first time.

Sangria, which is derived from the Latin word meaning the “color of blood,” has been around for centuries.  You can make it with red or white wine if you please, and the beauty of Sangria is that you can fiddle around with it to make it to your particular taste.  I was very impressed that almost every joint I went to in Spain had some variation of it, and in many cases on tap!

As you can imagine, my wife and I stumbled throughout the streets and alleys of Valencia with a slight dusting of inebriation.  We came across a small Bodega in an alley off the beaten path that was clear that only locals frequented.  “Jackpot!”  I thought to myself.  The shop owners were an old Spanish couple that were very proud of their wine that they had stored in Cedar barrels stacked high to the ceiling.  My wife who happens to be part Spanish only speaks “American”, so my German-Irish pale face had to do all the talking.  (Thanks high school Spanish!)

Fifteen minutes and 6 samples later, I had purchased 2 liters of some fine Spanish Tinto Rioja wine.  But more importantly, I was able to get some tips on how to make some old world Sangria from the old Bodega owners. I took the wine and knowledge back to New York where I was living at the time and put it to work.

I give you, “Goldmine Sangria”

1 bottle of a Spanish red wine

1/2 cup of Orange Juice

1 cup of sugar

1 “Golden” delicious apple cut into thin slices

2 lemons cut into thin slices

1 pear cut into thin slices

3 ounces of “Crystal Skull” Vodka

2 ounces of Tanqueray Gin

1 ounce of B&B (Brandy & Benedictine)

1/2 ounce of triple sec

“Splash” of Tonic Water

 .

Simply combine all of the ingredients except for the Tonic Water into a pitcher and allow to sit overnight.  When you are ready to serve, top off your mixture with a healthy amount of the Tonic water to give it a little fizzzzz….. and serve.
