Cocktail hour across Missouri, with a “Show Me Cocktail”, a Scientist McGee original drink created as an homage to the 2014 Major League Baseball postseason featuring the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Royals. A good time for baseball in Missouri, the “Show Me State”.
3/4oz rye whiskey
3/4oz apple brandy
3/4oz Swedish Punsch
1/4oz pear liqueur
2d Boker’s @adamsbitters
Stir with ice and serve up.
This drink’s split base spirit was directly influenced by the drinks of Death & Co. in New York City, as I was immersed at that time in their wonderful new book.
Furthermore, to truly pay homage to Missouri, I recommend mixing this drink with some rye whiskey that is distilled and bottled within the borders of our state, or better yet still, within the confines of one of these two fine cities – St. Louis or Kansas City.
