The White Lushian

lushian-thumb

Similar to the Big Lebowski's favorite cocktail The Caucasian (aka White Russian), our version of The White Lushian features our favorite milk from upstate. Battenkill Valley Creamery's whole milk is so silky and luscious that it actually holds up as well as regular cream. And with a splash of Bailey's Original Irish Creme, this cocktail mildly exhibits the milky sweetness of ice cream along with some serious alcohol levels that will most definitely have you cruising.

The White Lushian

Ingredients

1.5 oz Kahlua

The Hi-Pop

The week is finally over. Finally. I feel like I should give a toast or high-five a stranger or something. I don't know what it is about this time of year, but it seriously flies by and stresses me the fuck out. WIth Thanksgiving a few weeks away, and Christmas right after that, the overwhelming pressure from this season makes me go crazy, it's like dumping a truckload of fertilizer on a patch of wild weeds. And since it's Friday and all, and not that I ever really need an excuse to pop a bottle of bubbly, I'm celebrating what's left of my mental stability this week with a beautiful bubbly drink that is just so pretty that it might take my mind off of things. So here it is, The Hi-Pop. With a dash of bitters, a hibiscus flower soaked in floral syrup, and of course, some brut champagne, this potable is quite the Friday night treat.

The Hi-Pop

Ingredients

1-3 dashes of bitters
a shit ton of Brut Chamapagne

Directions

Place one pretty little flower at the bottom of an empty flute, top with champagne, add a dash or three of bitters and gently stir. Drink up buttercup.
