ONE FOR YOUR INNER DEMONS: THE SATAN’S CIRCUS
atan's Circus comes to us from the NoMad Hotel Bar which is located in the 'Tenderloin' neighbourhood of New York. In the 19th century, this area was popularly called 'Satan's Circus' due to the concentration of saloons, bars, brothels, and the two cornerstones of the city's fine dining and craft cocktail culture: the great Delmonico's and Jerry Thomas' New York Bar. Thus, this cocktail definitely pays a homage to the history.
Satan's Circus is a simple concoction of rye whiskey, lime, chile-infused Aperol, and Heering Cherry Liqueur. This exquisite blend of fresh lemon juice and Heering Cherry Liqueur lends the rye whisky a tone of sweetness along with an added depth. The chile-infused Aperol adds the much needed kick and offers a sinfully subtle and spicy finish.
Give your very own twist to it with a splash of Old Overholt Straight Rye Whiskey, Bulleit 95 Rye Small Batch Frontier Whiskey, or Sazerac 6 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey.
- Rye Whiskey – 4 tablespoons
- Chile-infused Aperol – 1.5 tablespoons
- Heering Cherry Liqueur – 1.5 tablespoons
- Lemon juice – 1.5 tablespoons
Begin by combining the rye whiskey, Heering Cherry Liqueur, chile-infused Aperol, and fresh lemon juice in your cocktail shaker.
After filling it with ice, cover, and shake for 30 seconds.
Stop when the shaker is frosty.
Strain into the glass.
Get ready to be begging for seconds as soon as you take the last sip of this fiery drink. Cheers!
