Cocktails + Libations = Cocktations

If you are wondering what a cocktation is, yours is a valid question. Cocktation is in fact a made-up word that tumbled from my mouth one day when I was trying to say the word concoction. That nifty little neologism was the seed idea for this blog, and here we both are today.

Planned Happenstance

Watching the Super Bowl, drinking wine, but I want a drink. A cocktail. What's in the kitchen? Rye, Cardamaro, a lemon, Ramazzotti amaro. Run downstairs and grab the Dal Degroff's pimento bitters and voila--planned happenstance. Even the measurements were influenced by the jigger I had nearby--a 50 mL/25 mL measure.

Planned Happenstance
50 mL George Dickel rye
50 mL Cardamaro
25 mL Ramazzotti amaro
4 dashes Dale Degroff's pimento bitters
Stir over ice, strain up into cocktail glass, and garnish w/lemon peel. 

It's warm, rich, layered, sweet, a little spicy, and perfect for a snowy February evening while watching the big game. 

Cheers! ~Dr. Cocktation
