Bastille Day!

bastille

Yesterday was Bastille Day!  Many of you are probably wondering what that is, well it is the French National Day.  It not only coincides with the storming of Bastille, but also with the resolution of the modern government with the old monarchy (wikipedia.com).  In other words, this is the French Independence Day!  Just like America, they have parades and fireworks.  As a matter of fact, they have the largest parade in Europe around the Champs-Elysees (wikipedia.com).

parade

As far as I am concerned though, the best thing about Bastille Day is the shots!  Not only do you mix white wine and tequila, but you get to slam your cup on the bar and yell “Bastille Day!”  Now I understand that for most people this doesn’t sound like the most tasty drink, but trust me when I say that the ingredients are key.

To make a great Bastille Day shot you need a buttery Chardonnay, such as Louis Latour.  The tequila you choose will make or break your drink. My recommendation is an infused tequila, such as Tanteo Cocoa.  It is infused with jalapenos and cocoa to give it a rich and slightly spicy flavor.  This is a nice contrast to the sweet, savory, buttery Chardonnay.  If you like sweeter cocktails, try Patron Citronge.  It is an orange flavored tequila that will compliment the wine while making the shot sweeter.

I believe I’ve said this before, but working at a tequila bar I have come to realize that people who claim to not like tequila are the most fervent about not drinking it.  So, for those of you who are anti-tequila, try modifying the Bastille Day shot with a ginger-infused cognac.  To make the infused cognac just slice fresh peeled ginger and let it set in the cognac for at least 24 hours.

Now all you need is the ratio and the proper way to slam  your drink!

3 oz white wine

1 oz tequila or cognac

Make sure you can form a seal with the cup you make your drink in.  I recommend using a rocks glass.  Put all the ingredients in the glass with no ice, form a seal with your hand, and gently tap the glass on the counter while yelling “Bastille Day!”

All About Maui: 3 Favorites

This is my FAVORITE waterfall on Maui, so worth the hike!

Waimoku Falls: The Pipiwai Trail, above Seven Sacred Pools, follows the Pipiwai Stream and is one of the best hikes on Maui.

Note: Stay safe. Please be aware of falling rocks.

Happy Independence Day!

drink3

Independence Day marks the separation of the American colonies from Great Britain in 1776 (history.com).  It was debatable amongst the forefathers of this country if our Independence Day was the day the Continental Congress met and voted for independence on July 2nd ,or if it was the day the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th.  John Adams, for instance, believed that July 2nd would be celebrated by future generations with a “great anniversary festival” including “pomp and parade, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other” (history.com).

drink5

Although he may have gotten the actually holiday date wrong, our celebrations are carried out in a manner he suggested and begin as early as the 1st of July.  Despite the warm muggy East Coast weather or the dry and overbearing heat to the West, this seasons festivities are already in full swing.  Families and friends are already enjoying BBQ’s, fireworks, and parades, and everyone will need a patriotic way to cool down.  So toss in the red, white, and blue cordial shots for this frosty Rocket Daiquiri and toast to your freedom!

drink2

Just in case you need some fun facts for your party guests, see if you can stump them with this question.  Why are there always less blue fireworks than other colors?  Well the answer boils down to cost.  To make a blue firework it requires a copper compound, which is not only more costly than calcium found in orange or the lithium found in red, but it is also more unstable at high temperatures (chemistry.com).

Now bust out your blenders and enjoy!

1 oz light rum

¼ oz lime juice

2 oz strawberry puree or about 4-5 strawberries + ½ oz simple syrup

ice

Blend this until smooth and pour into the bottom third of a hurricane glass.

1 oz light rum

1 oz pineapple juice

2 oz coconut milk

ice

Blend this until smooth and pour into gently to layer for a third of a hurricane glass on top of the strawberry layer.

1 oz light rum

1 oz blue Curacao

2 oz sweet and sour mix

ice

Blend this until smooth and pour gently to layer on top of the pina coloda until the glass is full.

If you don’t have a hurricane glass, just use whatever large glass is available.  The effect will be the same and taste equally delicious!
