Orange Milano Cocktail

JMF Oct 21, 2013 10:09 AM

Does anyone have any of these ingredients in their home bar? There was an off topic discussion on another thread that gave me an idea for a dry cocktail version of the Pepperidge Farm cookie. I came up with this recipe as a starting point. What are your thoughts?

I don't have the ingredients so I'm just working based on my palate memory, which is actually how I design any cocktails. I can think up 90%+ in my head and they come out great first try.

Here's the thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/920923

Orange Milano Cocktail
1 oz. premium vodka
1/2 oz. Ferrand dry Curacao
1/2 oz. White Creme de Cacaao
1/4 oz. Faretti Biscotti Famosi liqueur
1 dash Angostura bitters

Stirred on ice and strained into a chilled cocktail glass.

    Define "dry" for us?

    How about getting some of the chocolate flavor from mole bitters, and some of the orange flavor from orange bitters? Then -- I think -- you could come up with something relatively balanced. (Toward the bitter end, naturally. And it might not appeal to the cougar set. But hey, such is life.)

      Did you get the Ruby Tuesday contract? Sounds hideous.

      Now release JMF immediately or I'm calling the cops.

        Hey! Sometimes I have to think about what others besides cocktail fanatics might like. I've been trying very hard to succor the masses, without tarnishing my morals. They're the ones who provide for my lifestyle... ;-)>

            Can't stop LOL Dan! Beautifully said and expressed. If Jamie Boudreau of Canon in Seattle did not already have a cocktail named WTF, I would have called the Milano a WTF cocktail. But then again, never knock something potable until one has tried it.
