MB Cocktail Contest: Gary Cartwright vs. Chris Weigert

Gary Cartwright

4-6 mint leaves
1 3/4 oz bourbon
3/4 Citronge or other quality triple sec
splash sweetened lime juice

Rip and lightly crush mint leaves in a shaker tin with spoon or whatnot, then add lots of ice, the spirits and lime. Stir well, until tin dews up, and strain carefully over ice, with a lime twist or wheel garnish.

Chris Weigert

2 1/2 oz rye whiskey
2 fresh raspberries
3 dashes grapefruit bitters
juice of 1/6 lemon (of your average small lemon slice)

shake all well with ice, allowing the berries to be crushed in the shaker. Double strain into a DOF glass filled with ice. Garnish with lemon twist and a small slice of grapefruit.

Winner: Gary Cartwright
Score: 5-0
Game Summary: Weigert's raspberries weren't enough sweet to balance the sour. Cartwright's drink kept going; we wanted to keep exploring. It's very well balanced with subtle notes from all the ingredients.
