Burger & Beer Joint Makes A Mean Harlem Mini-Cocktail
Richie Petronzi from Burger and Beer Joint took first place among judges for his Harlem Nights cocktail with apple, maple, and tarragon. Nick Nistico from JB's on the Beach (that would be Deerfield Beach) took home the Fan Favorite prize for his Harlem Night Nurse. Recipe for the fan fav follows the flip -- we're not including the Burger and Beer recipe because it calls for "apple smoked bacon fat washed Harlem", and we have no idea what that means.
Harlem Night Nurse
Nick Nistlco from JB's on the Beach
1 oz Harlem
1/2 oz Tanqueray 10 Gin
1/2 oz white creme de cacao
1/2 oz homemade orange cacao syrup
1 whole orange
In a small shaker tin, add the first four ingredients. Add ice and shake thoroughly. Twist an orange peel over the shot glass, allowing the natural oils to flavor the inside of the glass. Strain the shot and pour into the glass.
