Instructions

Dive into history with The Betsy Ross, a cocktail that pays homage to an American legend known for sewing the first American flag. This innovative drink combines traditional American spirits with a modern mixology approach, offering a taste of history with every sip. Serve this patriotic concoction in a vintage crystal coupe glass to enhance its historical allure. Ingredients: - 2 oz bourbon (preferably a smooth, aged variety for depth) - 1/2 oz brandy (to add warmth and complexity) - 1/4 oz fresh lemon juice (for a touch of brightness) - 1 tsp grenadine (for a sweet hint and a color reminiscent of the flag's stripes) - 2 dashes of aromatic bitters (to balance the sweetness and add spiciness) - 1/2 oz simple syrup (optional, depending on preferred sweetness) - Garnish: A small, triangular fold of orange peel to symbolize the flag's field of blue, studded with three star anise to represent the original colonies Instructions: 1. Chill a crystal coupe glass by filling it with ice or placing it in the freezer. 2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the bourbon, brandy, fresh lemon juice, grenadine, bitters, and simple syrup if using. Fill the shaker with ice. 3. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds or until well chilled. 4. Remove the ice from your coupe glass and strain the mixture into the glass. 5. Carefully garnish with the orange peel, placing it in the drink so it floats on the surface. Nestle the star anise onto the peel to create the visual effect. 6. Serve immediately and enjoy a taste of American history with The Betsy Ross. This cocktail is a perfect blend of America's robust spirit and revolutionary history, delivering a rich experience that's as nuanced and intriguing as the legend it celebrates.
