Today we welcome Guest Maggie Hoffman into the studio to teach us the ways of the batch cocktail. We learn that Matthew is stingy with ice, how to serve alcohol family style and what to do with leftover cocktail.
The Happiness Cocktail from Batch Cocktails by Maggie Hoffman
Makes about 8 servings in a 1-liter swing top bottle
2 cups Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
1 cup bourbon
3 teaspoons Angostura bitters
1/2 cup water
8 orange twists
At least 2 hours before serving, make the batch. Use a small funnel to pour vermouth, bourbon, bitters and water into a 1-liter swing-top bottle. Seal, turn gently end over end to mix, and refrigerate.
To serve, turn bottle gently to mix. Place a large ice cube in each rocks glass, then pour into cocktail. Express oils from an orange twist over each drink and use twist as garnish.
