Manhattan’s Craftsman lounge and restaurant makes its way from Harlem to Miami’s Mary Brickell Village. Having quickly made a name for itself in New York City for craft cocktails, craft beers and craft sandwiches, the restaurateurs behind The Craftsman, Dave Casey and Phil Quilter, have teamed up with South Florida’s Dustin Elmalem to open The Craftsman Miami location.
With the Touch of Venice cocktail, The Craftsman Miami demonstrates the spirit of its company slogan, “Passion is Our Craft.”
“The Touch of Venice is a prohibition style cocktail – this is a spin on an Old Fashioned with an Italian flare,” shares Dr. Dizz D’Israeli Fernandez, The Craftsman Lead Mixologist. “The Italian liqueur is a blend of 13 herbs & plants that has a unique bittersweet flavor, which is accented by sweetness and a hint of heat from the Maca liqueur.”
Touch of Venice recipe and preparation:
- 2 oz. Zamaca Maca Liqueur
- .5 oz. Cynar Italian Bitter Liqueur
- .25 oz. Demerara
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- 2 dashes aromatic bitters
Char a piece of maple wood with crème brulee torch, capture smoke by placing glass cocktail container over freshly charred wood. Stir and pour into the smoked maple wood filled container. Shake and pour over double rocks glass. Garnish with flaming orange peel.
