Warren Bobrow’s Benny Goodman Fizz Recipe is Perfect for Infusing with Maui Waui
Master mixologist and Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics: The Art of Spirited Drinks & Buzz-Worthy Libations’ author Warren Bobrow has been dazzling us with his sophisticated cannabis infused cocktails, so we asked him to share another gem from his vault.
Bobrow recommends you use the Magical Butter (MB2e) machine to re-create this delicious libation in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Warren says: “Named for the King of Swing himself, the Benny Goodman Fizz is light on its feet. It’s sparkling, refreshing, and sophisticated, and it’s best when it’s crafted with barrel - aged gin, like Barr Hill’s Tom Cat gin. This unique style of gin dates back to the Middle Ages, when juniper — one of gin’s essential ingredients — was thought to ward off the plague. (Needless to say, it wasn’t terribly effective.) These days, though, barrel-aged gin is more about pleasure than it is about medicine. Aged in new, charred American oak barrels gives Tom Cat a toasty, vanilla-tinged finish perfect for infusing with a Sativa strain like Maui Waui (that’s pronounced “wowee,” by the way), which boasts flavors of sweet pineapple and a finish that’s reminiscent of sea-salt-coated stones. And it takes to the rose syrup and the gin like a kitten to a drippy sprinkler: that is, with boundless enthusiasm and affection.”
