Sin #8, B&O American Brasserie( Jazmine Johnson / Baltimore Sun / October 22, 2013 )
Remember the seven deadly sins? Well this is the 8th. For his creation, bar chef and drink creator Eric Fooy said he examined the concepts of heaven and hell. To play with this duality, he mixed Angel's Envy bourbon and Maurin Quina, which is famous for its bottle emblazoned with a green devil. The effect creates a simmering look, reminiscent of a witch's bubbling cauldron. The drink tastes similar to its New York Sour inspiration as it embodies a tart and tangy taste, but with the addition of the Maruin Quina, the drink also has a hint of cherry. The foam adds a nice frothy bubble to the top.
Sin #8 definitely does not utilize your typical Halloween flavors. Fooy explained that the drink's flavor profile grew from his desire to avoid pumpkin. "Everything is pumpkin," he said. "I love pumpkin, but I get tired of it fast." This is a drink of which you'll never tire, and who knows which side of you it will please -- your angel or your devil.
How to make the Sin #8:
2 oz Angel's Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1 egg white
1/2 oz. Maurin Quina
Shake all ingredients expect Maurin Quina and strain into a cocktail glass. Float Maurin Quina on top. Garnish with cherries.
