I’ve written about Darcy O’Neil before. His blog, Art of Drink is the first cocktail blog I ever bookmarked. His posts, seminars & eBook “Fix the Pumps” have contributed greatly to the way I approach making cocktails. Maybe it’s my own proclivity to justify my career by over thinking what I do, or maybe I’m just obsessed. Either way, I can’t heap enough thanks on Darcy’s plate.
Oh, and he sent me some free swag. Score.
Acid Phosphate is an ingredient that was once… hell, just click on the link and let Darcy tell you for himself. It will make more sense coming from him and I should probably be working on updating this blog, or teaching my daughter how to repel the evils of Sammy Hagar.
I’m using Acid Phosphate on our new drink list to share his cocktail “The Wet Grave” with St. Croix.
- 1¼ oz Bourbon (Makers Mark)
- ½ oz Newton Claret Syrup
- 2 tsp Dry Vermouth
- 1 tsp Acid Phosphate
- 3 dashes Peychaud Bitters
Another contributing factor to the inclusion of this drink was the last sentence of his post on The Wet Grave.
“Overall, the Wet Grave is the best original cocktail I have created to date.”
