We like Saxon + Parole because of the solid New American fare and the cool horse theme (after all, the joint is named after two famous racehorses). But we LOVE Saxon + Parole because of the cocktails. Naren Young, who also impresses with the drinks at The Daily and Madam Geneva, is behind the list here. We’re a fan of his work – if you want to see why just stop by Saxon and try one of their signature Celery Gimlets or Champagne Negronis. While those concoctions may get all the love, this week we’re giving a shout out to the El Presidente.
This mix of Appleton Estate Rum, Curacao, dry vermouth and house-made grenadine is a boozy delight, and the perfect way to get back in the groove after all those Bud Lights you drank over Memorial Day. While it’s fine to knock back a few brews at the barbecue, now that summer is here it’s time to get back to the cocktails. Check out the recipe below:
EL PRESIDENTE RECIPE:
1.5 oz. Appleton Reserve rum
¾ oz. dry vermouth
½ oz. orange Curacao
Dash of house made grenadine
Stir with love and strain into a frozen cocktail glass. An orange twist and a smile should round it off nicely.
