For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.
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).”
- 1 1/2 oz Privateer Navy Yard rum
- 1/2 oz Amaro di Angostura
- 1/2 oz Giffard Banane du Brésil liqueur
- 1/2 oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
- 1 Egg white
- Angostura bitters
- Garnish: Angostura bitters
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).
