WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO LET’S PUT FOUR RASBERRY INTO THIS SHAKER. AND I’M GOING TO ADD JUST A THREE-QUARTER OUNCE OF SIMPLE SYRUP IN THERE. WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS MUDDLE THAT. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE LINCHPIN FOR THIS PARTICULAR COCKTAIL. THAT’S DRUM-SHAMBO. IT’S A GIN MADE IN IRELAND. THE BEAUTY OF THIS PARTICULAR GIN SMALL PRODUCTION ALL MADE IN A COPPER STILL AND VAPORIZED THE BOW TANCALS THAT GO INTO GIN. WHENEVER YOU ARE MUDDELED WE WILL ADD THE GIN. WE WILL ADD ONE EGG WHITE. AND WE WILL ADD A THREE-QUARTERS OUNCE. THERE’S INTERESTING FLAVORS MIXED BETWEEN THE GIN AND EGG WHITE AND GRENADINE. WE HAVE SWEET AND SOUR AND SAVORY TO MAKE A WELL-ROUNDED COCKTAIL. I WILL SHAKE THIS UP. SINCE WE HAVE ACTUAL RASBERRYS IN HERE WHEN I’M DONE SHAKING IT. I WILL TAKE THE TOP OFF INSTEAD OF STRAINING AND I WILL WILLPOWER — WILLPOUR IT RIGHT INTO THE GLASS. LET’S GARNISH IT WITH LAST BETTERIAL FOR YOU. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT. IT’S REALLY INTERESTING. MAKES ME THINK YOU WILL HOLD ON TO IT. THIS IS TIPERARY. STARTS WITH JAMISON GIN. IT’S MADE SINCE THE 1800’S. IT’S THE STAPLE OF IRISH WHISKEY. FOR CERTAINLY IRELAND. WE’LL ADD ONE OUNCE OF THAT. ONE OUNCE OF LIQUOR CALLED CHARTRUSE. IT HAS 130 DIFFERENT HERBS IN THIS LIQUOR.
