Sometimes necessity is truly the mother of unexpectedly lyric invention. On a recent evening at Embury HQ the beer just wasn't cutting it, and faced with a rather lean spirit selection Friend Of Embury Oliver Rockaway fashioned this cocktail from available-and initially improbable seeming-elements. Some fresh grapefruit juice, ginger syrup, a bit of green apple and three little airplane bottles of Maker's Mark later "In Another Time" was born. This grapefruit bourbon sour is so named after the Sade song we were listening to on repeat while Oliver sought, and found, inspiration.
IN ANOTHER TIME
.5 oz Ginger Root Simple Syrup
The cocktail works just as well, if not better, on the rocks, and is preferable that way for afternoon drinking. Try this instead of a mimosa. Trust us. You will love it.
Boil equal parts Turbinado sugar and water, add ample chopped ginger, stir occasionally until thick and strain well.
