I’m on a plum wave, yo. I feel the window of opportunity with plums is quite narrow, so we gotta pack as many goodies as possible while they last. Also, plums happen to be very handsome and photograph so well (I mean, who am I kidding, I probably just come up with recipe so that I can style them haha).
I already did a couple desserts with plums in them (one more coming next week!), but for this one I decided to make it a cocktail, because, booze. I made one classic old fashioned and one with plums, roasted nonetheless (yep, I’ve also been on a roasting bender!). Roasting plums makes them EXTRA sweet and super rich and yummy. That flavour gets infused into whiskey (or bourbon if you want). It’s good enough to add an awesome layer of flavour, but not too overpowering to take over the whole thing.
I made both cocktails for the guys of Urban Outfitters (’cause they like their booze to be plummy, too!). You can head over to their blog for the full recipe. Side note: how rad are those diamond cocktail glasses? If I could only wear them as a ring (it wouldn’t be weird, would it?).
