About this Cocktail

Blackbird Bar Summer 2014. By Matt Grippo
Essentially inspired by that delicious street food, an elote. For anyone not familiar, an elote is a piece of roasted corn on the cob slathered in lime butter and dusted with chili powder. We char whole cobs of delicious summer local corn and infuse in Mellow Corn for about two weeks. It gives the whiskey an amazing floral nose with just a touch of smoke from the char.

Ingredients:
  • 2oz Roasted Corn Infused Mellow Corn Whiskey
  • .25oz Rich Demerara syrup
  • 2 dashes Bitter Cube Blackstrap Bitters
  • 2 dashes Chile Arbol Tincture
  • Orange twist
Preparation:

I like to build an Old Fashioned in the glass. Expressing orange oil into glass and rubbing it all around. Adding syrup, then bitters and tincture. Drop large ice cube in, pour whiskey on top and stir 15-20 times to dilute.

    Chris, only at Blackbird! Mellow Corn is a cool back catalogue item from heaven hill. I'm afraid it might be gone soon...

    I've had a chance to have this cocktail. Absolutely amazing. Sad to hear about Mellow Corn Whiskey possibly going away. I'd hate for this awesome cocktail to become extinct.

    Mellow Corn whiskey has been around since 1945 and there are no signs it will be going away any time soon.
