Springfield ’75

Did you know the French 75 cocktail was named after the  powerful French field gun that became an icon of victory in the American coverage of World War I? Similarly, the Springfield 1795 cocktail is named after the first musket to be produced in the United States.

The Springfield 1795 was the iconic musket carried by the American army during one of the last major battles of the War of 1812 in which British forces invaded Louisiana and were defeated at the Battle of New Orleans.  This victory was viewed by Americans as having restored national honor and marked the beginning of the Era of Good Feelings, a period of national unity.

Modified from Stephen Wood’s official 2018 Tales Of The Cocktail competition, this riff on a French 75 is perfect for celebrating special occasions!

Springfield 1795

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add all of the ingredients except sparkling rosè. Shake briskly and fine strain into a champagne flute.  Slowly top with sparkling rosè. Stir gently and garnish with an expressed swath of grapefruit peel which has been threaded with a sprig of thyme.

Mother of Pearl

Created by Lane Primeaux, Beverage Director of Soji in Baton Rouge. This is the perfect floral cocktail to survive the summer heat.

MOTHER OF PEARL
• 2 oz rose hip infused Shochu (directions below)
• .75 oz Black Rose Giffard Liqueur
• .5 oz fresh lemon juice
• .25 oz El Guapo® Classic Greek Rose cordial
• .5 oz egg white
• Dehydrated rose petals, for garnish

In clean shaker filled with ice, combine Shochu, liqueur, juice, cordial and egg white. Shake thoroughly until well chilled. Strain into a coupe, and garnish with dehydrated rose petals prior to serving.

To create infused Shochu, pour one 750 mL bottle of shochu over one cup of dehydrated rose petals in a non-reactive container to steep. Reserve empty bottle. Allow to infuse at room temperature for for up to 24 hours – knowing the longer you steep the stronger the floral notes in the alcohol will be. Strain mixture through cheese cloth, and re-bottle using funnel. The infused Shochu will keep for up to two months if properly refrigerated.
