Commodore - for the 21st century
Here is another example of Old School meets modern cocktailing and spirits. There are many variations of this cocktail. Troubling is the fact that many of the recipes we uncovered are void of chocolate. Perhaps the silly perception that cocktails with a sweet element are not sophisticated or worse, they may be strictly for the ladies (cocktails know no gender at BevX). Of course, nothing could be further from the truth so drop the hang-ups and enjoy our re-make of this classic.
1 1/2 oz. Quality Bourbon (we like a rye heavy recipe)
1 oz. Chocolate flavored Vodka
1 oz. Fresh lemon juice
A dash of grenadine
A splash of orange juice
Enjoy this cocktail year-round but it takes on a special and festive feel near Christmas.
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker along with a handful of ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
We have spotted many versions that are void of chocolate and we enjoy these as well.
