Meat Cocktails

February 27th, 2011

Another recent trend in mixology is the exciting combination of liquor and meat. What better way to enjoy your favorite cocktail than replacing your stirring rod with a stick of beef jerky. Wouldn’t a bloody ceasar pair nicely with some bacon or pancetta? A tropical rum punch with a skewered chorizo garnish? The following are some original meat cocktail ideas.

Tuna Martini:
It may sound like a character out of Dick Tracy, but its actually a delicious cocktail waiting to be served at your next dinner party.

1 oz Gin
1 oz Vodka
1/8 oz Dry Vermouth
Sushi grade Bluefin Tuna
Pickled Ginger leaf

The Equestrian:
The controversy over eating horse meat having died down, now is the perfect time to try this western-inspired bourbon cocktail.

2 oz Kentucky bourbon
A splash of apple juice
Salted horse meat

To the Duke and Duchess on their Wedding Day:
This is an elegant cocktail, reserved for those with a flair for the dramatic. The delicate combination of champagne and steak tartare with sing on the palate and go down like a tall glass of Orbitz.

3 oz of Champagne
An ice-cream scoop of steak tartare
A teaspoon of diced onions
A teaspoon of capers
