15 Days of Holiday Drinks (Day 8)

black-eyed-susan-cocktail• Each year, I offer readers a lineup of cocktail creations for the holiday season, culled from combing through all sorts of sources -- my own archives, bar books, distillers' ideas, etc. -- even press releases from breathless PR people seeking to get their clients' products mentioned.

This cocktail was created by barman Jim Hewes at the Round Robin & Scotch Bar in Washington, DC. It is part of his Triple Crown series of drinks, and makes great use of that brilliant American icon, bourbon, with a trio of citrus juices.  


2 parts Jim Beam Bourbon 
½ part orange liqueur 
1 part lemon juice 
1 part orange juice 
½ part lime juice 
½ part raspberry liqueur

Mix all ingredients except the raspberry liqueur with ice in a mixing glass. Then place the raspberry liqueur in a chilled martini glass, and float contents of mixing glass into the martini glass. Garnish with a blackberry and a twist of orange.
