Super Bowl Cocktail #1: The Golden Gate

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 3, 2016

240px-Super_Bowl_50_logoThe Super Bowl (I think it is officially called Superbowl 50) is coming up this Sunday at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. An if you are like me you have booked the day off (even from the family).  I like to plop myself into my easy chair with a plate of chicken Wings and a nice bar drink. This year, Diageo (the large spirits conglomerate) sent me a few recipes (and the spirit samples to make them), and unlike a lot of the recipes which are sent my way, I thought that they were quite good and worth sharing.

The Golden Gate is obviously inspired by one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge. which is located about 40 miles northwest of the home of Super Bowl 50, Levi Stadium. The cocktail is an “Old Fashioned” style serving which mixes Bulleit Rye with Blackberry Syrup and a few dashes of Bitters. Apparently Bulleit Bourbon  has a strong connection to the San Francisco Bay area through founder Tom Bulleit’s love for the city (at least this is what I have been told), and Bulleit Rye was created in direct response to requests from the San Francisco bartending community who wanted a full flavoured rye whiskey for their short and tall cocktail creations.

Hopefully you all like this cocktail as much as I do.
