Sutter Home Wine Cocktails: Muddling & the Ginger Posey Cocktail

| Posted by Megan for Sutter Home

Like we said yesterday, anything you like you'll probably like in a cocktail. Today's recipe includes muddling ginger. You can buy a muddler and keep with your bar tools or, in a pinch, use the handle of a wooden spoon. Put the spice/herb/root/fruit/etc at the bottom of a pint glass or shaker and use the wooden spoon to smush (the technical term) it. Muddling releases oils, flavors & aromas that you wouldn't normally get just by dropping the item into the cocktail.

- I never knew what these chirrees were called. Sprinkle in some fresh basil flowers. They usually taste the same as the herb, only they look nicer. Problem is that when the herb is flowering, the herb itself doesn’t taste that great…I always love walking around in markets and picking up fresh produce. I get sad during the winter because there’s only so much squash I can have.Thanks for the post!
