MB Cocktail Contest: Xopher Hartman vs. Jeff Kuo

MB Cocktail Contest: Xopher Hartman vs. Jeff Kuo

Xopher Hartman

Ingredients:
1.5 oz bourbon (I used Jim Beam black label)
0.5 oz green Chartreuse
0.125 oz simple syrup
2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
orange peel (garnish)

Instructions:
Shake all liquid ingredients with ice in a boston shaker, then drain into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with orange peel.

Jeff Kuo

2 parts Cognac (Bache-Gabrielsen Hors d'Age if you can swing it)
1 part Green Chartreuse
1 part Elderflower (Thatcher's)

Instructions:
Stir ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Serve.

Winner: Xopher Hartman
Score: 5-0
Game Summary: We're not sure what happened to the photos for this matchup, but it was Hartman unanimously. It had a real warmth to it and the orange oil brought out the flavor. Kuo's cocktail was too heavy on the elderflower.
