LA RAMS

THE FRONT SEVEN COCKTAIL

For football season, Liquor.com chose a bartender from each NFL team’s hometown to provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.

“The D line and the linebackers are the strongest group in the Ram’s current lineup,” says John Coltharp, the head bartender at Los Angeles’ Seven Grand. “This stiff cocktail is a tribute to those seven players; it also features the earthy flavors the Rams want the opposing running back to experience when they shove his face into the ground.”

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz Slow Hand white whiskey
  • 1 oz Cynar
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 dash Orange bitters
  • 1 dash Peychaud’s bitters 

Garnish: Lemon peel 

Instructions:

Add all of the ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and stir until cold. Strain into a rocks glass over ice. Express the oil from a lemon peel over top of the drink and garnish with the peel on the ice, skin up.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

Flying Elvis

For the New England Patriots, “this cocktail is a little taste of humble pie, with the strength and resolve of some local navy-strength rum providing structure, a little taste of the unexpected from the Amaro di Angostura and egg white, just like the Pats playbook,” says bartender Vikram Hegde at Cambridge, Mass.’s Little Donkey. “Plus, there’s a little something festive and tropical in the Giffard Banane du Brésil liqueur (you know, because Gisele).”

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ oz Privateer Navy Yard rum
  • ½ oz Amaro di Angostura
  • ½ oz Giffard Banane du Brésil liqueur
  • ½ oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 Egg white
  • Garnish: Angostura bitters

Instructions:

Add all of the ingredients to a shaker, and shake without ice until emulsified for about a slow 5 count. Add ice and shake vigorously for a slow 10 count or until the shaker frosts over. Fine-strain into a lowball glass without ice, and garnish with a few dots of Angostura bitters in the shape of the Patriots’ Flying Elvis logo (to the best of your artistic ability).
